“Well worth a drive out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

We visited The Wheatsheaf because of the reviews on TA. This place stands up to the hype and some more. They were busy which was great to see and we weren't in any hurry. The wait was worth it for quality food and wine served by quality staff. This is a pub where the food is cooked fresh and to order so if you want fast food go to a chain of pub restaurants. If you want to feel special and go away with good memories then come here and unwind.

“Brilliant Food, Brilliant Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Went here to meet up for a family lunch. Before we arrived the communication regarding tables and availability was great and very punctual. The emails were all very friendly and it felt like they wanted us to come for lunch and would do what they could to fit us in. - not something you get from every pub. Really warm friendly welcome and service throughout, we knew we only had the table for 2 hours and staff handled this with such a friendly and relaxed style. We had our pudding in the bar area, and this worked great for us. The food was brilliant, all tasted really fresh and portion size was really good. The whole crab was fantastic and a delight to eat. Served simply, but simply delicious. No complaint from any of the table about any of the food or drink.
I found prices to be really reasonable too. All in all a great little pub in a lovely countryside. Easy to get to and certainly another Rutland pub i would recommend. Food and Staff make it feel so friendly and homely.
Normally i like to try different places, but the whole crab may well just tempt me back again,

“One of the best meals I've ever had!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

You could say I'm a fussy eater, whenever I go out for a meal I always wish I hadn't bothered... Until we visited the Wheatsheaf. I had the smoked salmon with corn fritters for starter and the tuna steak for main. I can honestly say it's one of the best meals I've ever had and very good value for money.

“just go there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Went on spec Aug 8th 2014 and although had to wait a short while due to them being very busy the staff were very, very pleasant and atentive. When the food came it was well presented and delicious. If you like very good food cooked to perfection and first class service then just go and see for yourself. We had almost stopped eating out because of bad service and very poor food, but the wheatsheaf inn has proved that good service and great food is still available in this country.
