“So disappointing”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We have been regulars here for many years however our experience today was very poor. The whole place seems to have been downgraded. The place was filthy with tables uncleared, dirty floor and a really unkempt feel. Whereas you used to have cutlery brought to you, you now have to collect it along with sauces etc. The food was very disappointing. All such a shame as we have, for years, reckoned on good value, decent food and a reasonable ambience. None of these things applied in this visit.

“Excellent place who opened up early just for us!!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Great pub who were so good to open up early so we could meet here before our friend's hen party. They put on a lovely breakfast of breakfast sandwiches and the service was great! They even threw in free shots for us all! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice pub with great service willing to go the extra mile.

“Amazing pub with all the trimmings”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Having visited The Wheatsheaf in Upton for the first time as a "Sizzling" pub a few weeks ago I have been a further two times and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. Each time the food has been of superb quality and service from staff amazing. Both of these visits were made during lunch time and both occasions have been relatively busy. Staff are very friendly and always happy to assist. I do have one confession about the place.....the first time I went I ordered Surf and Turf with Curly Fries...and it came with normal chips. I really regret sending it back much to my twins annoyance but they happily bought me out a portion of Curly Fries and the pudding....WELL......oh it was yum! For my second visit on Tuesday it was absolutely faultless! You can't complain about anything about this place. Amazing amazing amazing! Shall be recommending to friends and family without doubt.

“Good food reasonably priced”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We live locally and use this restaurant often. It is usually busy in the evening but service is still quick. Most of the staff have been there a while and are really friendly although rushed off they feet. Have yo say we usually have the gammon which is an absolute bargain and it is consistently good.If we can manage it the puddings are good too with large portions .All in all a good local pub .
