We have just returned from a perfect Christmas getaway at the Wheatley arms. From start to finish we received excellent service and this place really made our first Christmas as a married couple very special.
Check in was quick and efficient and our room was lovely. Lots of daft little touches that make this place stand out from the crowd- I.e. Proper mugs in the room, Yorkshire tea bags (not cheap rubbish!) and robes in the room. The price was very reasonable for the modernly decorated and very clean room.
The staff were bubbly, friendly and attentive- exactly what you want in a 'proper pub'! Good banter, good atmosphere but still an air of professionalism about the place.
Food here was awesome! Don't get me started on the scrambled eggs and pancakes! Xmas day food was beautiful, courses were well spread out but this suited us perfectly, no one wants to rush through Xmas dinner!!
A special thanks to Kate the bubbly lady who went out of her way to make sure everyone was happy. Steve who was very helpful during booking and let us chill with a real ale on Xmas night with his adorable pooch and finally the lovely wee blonde girl who served our breakfast on Xmas day - very helpful and friendly and started our Xmas day off on the right note!
All in all a very comfortable, laid back and memorable Christmas here. If this is how good a place performs under pressure at such a busy time it shows excellent management and what a good team they are. We will most certainly be back.
Thank you very much
The Botwrights xx
