I came here with my family and had a lovely evening with great service, food and atmosphere. The decor is great and the dining room our table was in was relaxed and not too busy. There were dogs in the bar area so a return visit with our own dog has already been planned. I would highly recommend a meal... More

This is a dog friendly pub with easy chairs, good food and reasonably priced meals. The service was reasonably prompt and the food as described on the menu. They serve prosecco by the glass which is always appreciated and have a good selection of beer and lagers. The layout allows those wanting to drink and those wanting to eat to... More

A fantastic Sunday Roast with very welcoming staff! - I would recommend the Lamb and the cheese board for desert.

Very disappointed with our visit here. I should of sensed something not quite right with the number of tables vacant at 2-30 on a Sunday afternoon. Not going to down the staff as they were friendly and gave a good service but the food was not up to scratch. I had Sunday dinner (£12-95..) Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes, dried up... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us Charlie Judging by the fact we served over 200 meals on Sunday and sold out of Roast Beef and Roast Lamb, I wouldn't feel it is fair to say that as we were quiet after our first sitting there is obviously an issue with quality. I'm sorry if you didn't enjoy your... More

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. After a long day, we arrived a bit frazzled and got the last room available. It happened to be the bridal suite, and what a lovely room. Dinner was also scrumptious and what a great nights sleep! Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful practice honey moon...not actually getting married... More

Visited the Wheatley for a late lunch with friends. The menu is extensive and quite varied, better than some places that only offer a limited Sunday menu. We ordered various mains, the best of which were the fish pie and the monkfish scampi. The fish on the large fish & chips was a bit small, but tasty. Deserts ok but... More
