The Wheatsheaf Inn - A review

Wheatsheaf Inn

Warden Road
ME12 4HA
t: 01795 880318

Set on a long winding country lane, the Wheatsheaf Inn doesn't look much from the outside, but don't let appearances fool you.

Inside the pub is clean and spacious.
The main bar has a lovely old feel about it with the regulars tankards hanging from original oak beams in all their glory.

8 of us plus a 9month old baby sat down for a meal and we were all accommodated well despite the fact that we had just walked in from the street and had no prior booking.

The lovely owner showed us to our table and handed us the menus.

The little kids opted for their usual of chicken nuggets, chips and baked beans.
The two teenagers went for the beef burger meals. All from the Children's menu.

The prices were good and the portions were generous.

From the main menu, I opted for the Vegetable burger and the other two adults in the group went for the Chicken Curry with rice and the Lamb Shank with Jacket Potato, respectively.

The meals were cooked in good time and didn't disappoint. The portions again were very generous, given their price.

We all had drinks of course, ranging from squash and Fruit Shoots to Coke and even a few alcoholic beverages.

Then came dessert.. WOW!

The kids chose Vanilla Ice Cream with a choice of either Chocolate or Strawberry sauce, and with 3 scoops being the standard, they all had huge grins on their faces!

A few of us chose the Chocolate Fudge Cake, with either whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Again the size of the portions were nothing to be sniffed at. The apple crumble came with an overdose of custard, much to the delight of the man of the group!

Our waitress/chef was very kind and helpful, and openly chatted to both the adults and children in the group.

The service was prompt and extremely customer focused.

Expecting a huge bill at the end of our visit, to say that we were lost for words would have been an understatement!

The whole meal, including deserts and drinks for the 8 of us came to under £50!!

We all left the Wheatsheaf Inn full of delicious food and needing to go on a diet, but knowing that we could afford to splash out on those few extra gym sessions to help us along the way!
