Think of the Wheatsheaf as a place to relax. For people looking for comfort to socialise where it is as much about drinking as eating think "The Wheatsheaf Inn".The Wheatsheaf is about value for money, your need to escape, to relax and enjoy, somewhere where the food is traditional and comforting, all homemade on site using nothing but fresh local produce. Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community
