With The Wheatsheaf, you know what you are getting. An evening of good service, reasonably priced meals and large portions of food. There must be so much wastage going back to the kitchens? If you are hungry this is the place locally to go.

The Wheatsheaf, admittedly, is a pub. So it should probably come as no surprise that pretty much ALL of their food is microwaved. This, however, does not mean that the food was terrible, it was actually OK for pub food. If you're looking for a good pub in the Sandy area for some food, I'd recommend The Wheatsheaf.

The food here is amazing! there is so much to choose from, from a smaller portion menu, a normal menu and the specials board. The food is always fresh and hot when it's brought out and also Big portions for your money for the hungrier type. The staff are lovely too! Highly recommend
