My wife and I often have lunch at the Wheatsheaf and on occassion invite friends. The menu is extensive and goes well beyond what is commonly referred to as Pub-grub. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner without breaking the bank.

Have visited this restaurant on many occasions over last 10 years, but since the original owner retired I don't think the service, surroundings or prices for what you get is up to that much now. Went recently for a meal with husband and our order was scarce to say the least and the price was over the top for what... More

We've been to The Wheatsheaf Inn on a number of occasions and there's only been 1 disappointment but to be fair they took my dish off the bill after they noticed I didn't eat it because the chicken had a few big veins running through it (obviously not their fault) so all in all I can't complain at all.
