We visited the Wheatley with friends. We had not been before. We found it to have a pleasant ambience and the staff were all pleasant and helpful. We did not eat lunch but opted for a drink and a sandwich. Both were excellent

Was disappointed to be limited to the menu and that was it. Service setting and quality was all top notch but that reflects the prices. The staff wouldn't mix anything off he menu to give a special dish to suit one of our party

Went for Sunday lunch and ordered the Sunday roast which was roast beef. I was impressed by the number of staff. I do not like it when the staff are running around struggling to cope. No problem here as the restaurant was well staffed and they were efficient and professional. I specifically asked the waiter for my beef to be... More

Good local food. We stay regularly in the hotel and prefer it to other hotels in the area. The Bar is popular but with lots of corner seats if you want to be private.
