Description: Think of the Wheatsheaf as a place to relax. For people looking for comfort to socialise where it is as much about drinking as eating think "The Wheatsheaf Inn".The Wheatsheaf is about value for money, your need to escape, to relax and enjoy, somewhere where the food is traditional and comforting, all homemade on site using nothing but fresh local produce. Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community

We visited the Wheatsheaf twice for dinner during a week-long stay in the area. Among several village pubs we visited, it was the only one we returned to for a second visit, it was that good. Staff were friendly each time. Upon arrival the first time, we were warned the kitchen was quite busy and there would be a bit of a wait. They were right, and we did have to wait a while for the food, but it was worth it, and it was nice to have our expectations managed.

The meals were such refreshing departures from standard pub fare. I actually had the same meal twice (chicken curry with lovely papadums and chutney) it was so good the first time. Everyone else in the family enjoyed their meals, including the vegetarian pasta and Cumberland sausage. The portions for the children's pizza was massive.

The restrooms were among the cleanest I've ever experienced in a pub. The village locals were friendly and struck up conversations a couple of times during our visits. We ate inside both times but the garden area looked like a nice place to have a pint or meal. The real ales I had were fresh and well-poured.

Having visited this little gem on the outskirts of Carlisle, I was awestruck by the professionalism and knowledge of both the bar stuff and the owner of the lovely establishment on the area.

This cute little pub lies to the north of the village and is extremely welcoming but also offers a unique experience in that it has a huge beer garden and a picture perfect garden area for the kids to be let loose.

The only drawback we experienced was that even though the majority of the clientele were aristocrats, a couple of young lads with tattoos were speaking pretty loud in the corner of the pub and even swore once to our amazement.

However, the overall experience was smashing with some brilliant ales on offer.

Keep up the good work Wheatsheaf Inn Wetheral.

As you can see from the website pictures this is not a gastro pub but the food is freshly cooked and of exceptional quality. My wife had the lamb special and I had the curry, both excellent. There is a TV in the bar area, which was switched off while we were there but the football was showing at 8 pm. If you want a quieter spot ask for a table in the dining end, which is away from the TV. Godd beer too.

Four plates of fish and chips and four pints. Relaxing atmosphere. What more could you want. Looking forward to trying something else off the menu.
