Review on The Wheatsheaf Inn
The Wheatsheaf has been dispensing beer and hospitality for several hundred years, and you can still see fascinating echoes of its past in the bar: note the lintel over the fireplace (reputedly the remnants of an ancient coffin lid) and the carved crosses on the beams and chimney (apparently to ward off witches).
Lately, a serious refurb has catapulted the Wheatsheaf firmly into the twenty-first century, thanks to energetic new owners Tony and Holly Robson-Burrell. While they have retained the pub's 'local' character (real ales, a skittle alley and other traditional pub games), the emphasis is now on serious food with their Ritz trained son Jack taking over from Dad in the kitchen.
The cooking has a modern imprint, so you can expect bold flavours and fashionable ingredients in dishes like smoked Coln trout with Pecorino and lime, pan-roasted salmon with chorizo mash or slow-cooked lamb shank with basil polenta and niçoise jus. Equally modish desserts might include pannacotta with poached prunes and Armagnac or homemade bourbon vanilla ice cream.
