We have eaten here before, quite recently and the food was excellent. Today we fancied a quick lunch, so ordered ham, egg and chips and an all day breakfast. We waited ages and when the food came we were disappointed. Basic slices of ham under 2 not brilliant eggs and poor quality chips. The breakfast was not good either, very greasy, black specks on the over cooked bacon, and what was offered as toast was a barely warm slice of white bread. The toast was replaced on my request. As we had no time to spare we ate what we could and just gently commented to the waiter who cleared our table. He did say "sorry about that". I do hope this was just a one off bad day for this lovely pub restaurant

Called in for lunch, just needed simple bar snacks and the Wheatsheaf delivered - jacket potatoes and sandwiches/paninis with an excellent side of chips. Nice wide selection available, served fairly quickly. Staff couldn't do enough to look after us. The landlord confirmed it had been extensively refurbished within the past year and everything, including the toilets, looked fresh. The only minor quibble would be that the restaurant area looked more like a cafeteria with the tables mostly aligned in rows.

Amazing, the food was outstanding today, I took a party of 10 after the baptism of my grandson, he throughly enjoyed his Butterfly Prawns followed by (in his words) THE WORLDS BIGGEST ICECREAM!. Not only did you do yourself proud, but did us proud too, so thank you for such a wonderful lunch, excellent service and exceptional value for money, well done

I have a quick visit to the Wheatsheaf, unforutnatley not for the food as they finish early on a Sunday.

The choice of beers/largers is range however not to my taste. Lagers- kronenburg, fosters, cools,,, the usual suspects. However, they were well kept. A nice crisp pint.

The barman was very helpful letting me know where local places would be serving food on a Sunday night,
