About The Wheel Inn

Few things are as beloved in rural England as the traditional country pub, and the elements that must come together for the experience to be as authentic and traditional as possible. At The Wheel Inn, they have assembled one of the best examples of the genre to be found in Leicestershire, if not far beyond that. They occupy an ancient building in the centre of Branston that has been a public house for well over 200 years, and their beers too, as exemplary, and have won awards such as the Vale of Belvoir CAMRA Pub of the Year, which they have picked up in both 2015 and 2016. The food, too, is exceptional, with a menu that takes in British classics, local favourites, international dishes and far, far more: in fact, too many for us to mention. Instead, just take a trip to The Wheel Inn on the Main Street in Branston for the best country pub in Leicestershire, bar none.

More about The Wheel Inn, Branston

The Leicestershire countryside is the very heart of England, and the Vale of Belvoir, situated on the meeting point of Leics, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, is a known local beauty spot, so it is befitting that that most British of rural institutions, the country pub, is well represented in the region. In the village of Branston, one can find The Wheel Inn, about as good an example of the genre as you’re likely to see anywhere. They’ve won Pub of the Year for the last two years running from CAMRA – and they’d know what constitutes a good boozer – and they offer a selection pub grub favourites that are known and beloved the length of the land, from British favourites to international specialities. Let us talk you through a few of them.

The local options include starters such as the full Ploughman’s Lunch, mains including David Cox’s local sausages with mash and onion gravy, beer battered fish and chips and well aged steaks with chips, mushrooms and a dressed salad. The international options are from the world over: whole baked Camembert, Thai style cod and lime fish cakes and Greek salad to start and lamb bhuna, sweet and sour chicken with egg fried rice or tomato, pepper and aubergine ragu linguine to follow. That’s British food, accompanied by French, Thai, Greek, Indian, Chinese and Italian allied to it, all in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, in an over 200 year old pub, accompanied by gallons of proper, real ale. You can’t say fairer than that – book a table now and get over to The Wheel Inn for a proper family feed.

Lovely setting in pretty village. Good honest country pub serving excellent food with something for everyone. Beer to die for! And a steak to put a top class restaurant to shame.
