The Wheatsheaf would be well worth a trip from Bath, Bristol or beyond just for its stunning surroundings – on Wells Road in Corston, The Wheatsheaf offers magnificent views towards the Mendip Hills and the West Country downs as well as limitless supplies of open country air. However, that’s not why most people stop by to see Niki and Barry Horwood, who have refurbished this historical British pub and injected a big dose of culinary quality into a bar and restaurant already overflowing with countryside charm and old-timey comfort. All the great British pub classics are on offer, from a cheese ploughman's lunch to a leisurely Sunday lunch. A good old fry-up of pig's liver, bacon in onion gravy, spring greens or peas, mash or chips is a local favourite, of course, though a selection of freshly made sandwiches, divine desserts and international influences thrown about mean there is something for the whole family – even its canine members, because The Wheatsheaf doesn’t discriminate.
Excellent service and food great to have an open log fire burning in the bar. Dog friendly bar area attentive service. Food all freshly prepared ...
Great food. Served with a smile and friendly greeting. Nothing was to much trouble Good food and friendly pub. Will defo go again Landlord and colleagues very friendly Nice pub for an informal evening out Well done wheatsheaf.
Very friendly welcome, cosy log fire. Excellent fish and chips. Unfortunately trade is down due to road closure, worth making the diversion. Will definitely return.
First time visit to the wheatsheat and was really impressed. Staff friendly very clean pub and above all food was excellent and very well priced. Will definitely be visiting again
We were given a voucher for the Weatsheaf so decided to use it yesterday. We were able to book a table online very easily and within a couple of hours had arrived. We found the staff professional and extremely friendly. The food was ordered and was with us quickly. It was wonderful, good sized portions and cooked to perfection. There is not one thing to criticize. We will definitely be back soon.
The food was lovely - home cooked traditional pub fare- and the pub itself is lovely. What was a little lacking was the attitude of some of the staff. Some were lovely, but I was left waiting at the bar whilst the bar man unloaded the dish washer and my children were shouted at (not discreetly) when they touched some ornaments. This is in a pub which advertises itself outside as family friendly. I wouldn't be put off visiting again, but please remember that a warm welcome counts for a huge amount.
Landlord(?) seemed flustered. Dauphinoise potatoes not available (heard another table say the same thing happened on a previous visit). They were offerred mash or new pots.....so was there only one portion left? 45 mins later we find out. No. My wife hadn't been asked and was simply given new pots. As her choice was specifically for dauphinoise big disappointment. The girl serving very apologetic and quick to return with replacement chips but damage done. Beer quality and ambience fine but sadly unlikely to return. The restaurant area was not busy.
Very welcoming and attentive staff, sweets were a little disappointing though. Gammon steak was really good however and we would recommend having this, my steak was on the tough side but I didn't complain as I don't like making a fuss and I felt they did their best.
Reserved table was ready at 6.30pm as arranged and when I said I was a bit of a hurry the food arrived promptly. The Fish and chips were well cooked but a small portion for the price. Landlord seemed a bit grumpy. Generally OK but not great.
A very smart pub with good food and real ale, Butcombe, Doombar and 6X. Pleasant staff. Recommend the liver and bacon, and home made faggots. Very good atmosphere
