We stopped here for a late lunch and had a very enjoyable high quality meal the choice was good and well priced. I had pork belly which was delicious my husband had a angus beef burger and several of our party had various other items which were all cooked to perfection with lovely fresh seasonal vegetables. We had to squeeze a pudding in and they were fantastic our waiter was friendly and professional. We would definitely return on our next visit to whitby

Booked a double room at the Wheatsheaf for 1 night early October, On arrival we were offered the choice of either of the doubles or the twin, all of which had en suite facilities and were excellent. The rooms are actually part of a small rental property that consists of a living room with reclining leather chair and sofa before an open fire log fire which had been lit just for us (we were the only guests that night). There is also a kichen which guests are invited to use. These facilities would be available (but shared) with other guests if pesent but still presented a welcome and comfy addition to the normal room rental.

The owners couldnt have been more welcoming if we had been family! Helpful, friendly, unobtrusive and informative.

The accommodation is conected by corridor via their own property to the pub and restaurant. A sign when we arrived in the morning declared that all tables were booked in the restaurant for that night...testimony to the range and quality of the food served that evening. The meal we had was excellent and reasonably priced for the quality received with the total bill for 2 couses each, a bottle of wine and 2 ciders coming in at less than £60! Well worth it and highly reccommended.

Egton, the village where the Wheatsheaf is located, is a 2 minute drive from Grosmont where both the N Yorks railway and the Steam Railway connect you to Whitby and Pickering (Via Goathland of Heartbeat fame) respectively.

A great place that we will definitely re-visit. Thank You, Wheatsheaf

We like to try different pubs/restaurants on our holidays and some recent guests at the cottage that we stayed at had mentioned the Wheatsheaf and recommended booking. So we called up for a 7:30 meal and were told that 7:30 had gone but 7:00 or 7:15 was OK, so we went for the 7:15 slot. We got there at 7:15 and then ended up waiting in the bar until just past 8, so I'd had a couple of beers before going through to the restaurant area and wasn't best pleased with the wait - although the draft beer was good and they obviously take care of it. But the meal was very, very good. Choice of courses is 'limited' - about 7 or 8 of each - but that usually means that they are all pretty good and that was definitely the case here. I had the best chicken and bacon pie with chips that I've ever had. The pie had obviously been cooked to order rather than stuck in a tureen and heated up and the chunky chips were properly deep fried rather than 'oven chips' or 'fries'. My wife had a meal off the specials board - Chicken Normandie - which was also beautifully cooked and the accompanying vegetables were also freshly cooked. For dessert we split a selection of 3 mini dishes and they were also freshly prepared and were very good. The meal was excellent and very reasonably priced. A nice little pub which the locals obviously use for drining - and eating! I would recommend eating here if you want a change from Whitby.

We came for an early dinner with our children. Nice friendly welcome. The pub area is small but lovely. I found the restaurant a little cold. We had 3 courses and all were lovely. My husband had lamb kidneys and I had scallops for starters - both excellent. Our main courses were good with lovely veggies and the best chips I've had in ages. Good choice children's menu as well. Puds were very good as well. Reasonable price for excellent food.

Wife and I had Sunday lunch. Beef was nice and rare and the small portions of 8 different veggies were all fresh and perfectly cooked - especially the white beetroots. For the £10 price it could not have been bettered.
But it was. The apple crumble with real vanilla ice cream was superb and worth our 50 mile drive. The apple was still in discernible pieces with a bit of a bite and nothing like the mush that most places serve in crumbles. Cant wait for the rhubarb season
And the really good news. The place was full for 2 sittings at lunch and about 30 people were turned away.

Having recently eaten at the Wheatsheaf Inn, a compliment to the chef is certainly deserved. Both my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, our meals were simply excellent!
Thank you and we will certainly spread the word that, the Wheatsheaf Inn is by far the best in our local area!
