We have visited this lovely Hotel before and it was fantastic on our first visit and we very much looked forward to returning, especially for the valuable 'Penny Menu' 3 weeks ago we decided to book a table for 2 and when we arrived it was very busy (often a sign of how good a place is) We were shown to our upstairs table and a drink order was taken by a happy and very polite member of staff, who explained to us there may be a wait for our food to be delivered as it was busy and we said how we could see it was busy and knew it would be worth the wait. The drinks didn't take long to arrive with a smile and we had made our minds up what we would have to eat. Black pudding fritter and a cheese tart for starters, Rump Steak and Hunters chicken for our mains and Sticky toffee pudding and apple crumble for desert. We actually didn't wait as long as we thought we would and the cheese tart had been oven cooked so it was lovely crisp pastry not the soft microwaved rubbish that you get at many places these days. Our main courses came with a separate dish of fresh vegetables, not the frozen rubbish and we were table checked a couple of times to see if everything was ok and to see if we wanted any more drinks etc.. The sticky toffee pudding was large and filling and made onsite with plenty of sticky toffee sauce and i've cream as was the crumble which was crunchy and not mush. (plenty of apple too) The Wheatsheaf is a lovely relaxing place even when busy and very happy, welcoming staff, who make you feel there is nothing that is too much trouble. I'm quite shocked to read the comments below as we really looked forward to visiting again and we were not disappointed. I cannot understand how the person below could rate rooms and sleep quality, if they left in a taxi? Maybe I've got the wrong message. We look forward to being able to visit again in the future :)
