I had originally booked here for one night but decided to stay for a second. The Wheatsheaf, in a small village separate from the hustle and bustle of Haslemere, is a delight. It is also a good base for touring some of the many sights of the area, including Petworth House, Bodiam Castle and Sheffield Gardens.
My room was compact but comfortable and well equipped. The en suite shower, unlike many in this country, did not impose heavy engineering demands on the user and hot water was plentiful. There is some noise from the pub, but it shuts down at 11.
Ken is a most welcoming and gracious host and he also offers superior food in the pub and restaurant. There is a set dinner menu, two courses for 11.95, three for 14.95, which is excellent value. I ordered the soup and hake and chips my first night — both excellent with the fish freshly cooked and not soggy.
The following evening, I ordered from the blackboard — superb liver pate and chicken diane. I should add that the wine list was varied and fair.
The full English breakfast was beautifully prepared and sufficient to carry me through the day. I can't recommend this pub restaurant with rooms too highly.
