There was a mix up with our booking the first time we visited, so we settled for a drink which was perfectly enjoyable. Daryl did however come to apologise and offered us a discount on our next visit which suited us fine. When we rebooked, we were all very happy with the friendly service, good food and nice atmosphere of... More

A busy Saturday night, but service was still great. Food was as fabulous as always (at a good price, too). A friend brought me a bottle of bubbly, and the Wheelwrights offered to open it and serve it to us, without any mention of paying corkage.

We originally booked for lunch but unfortunately they double booked us and we had to leave. However manager was extremely polite and offered 15% off if we returned. We decided it to agree and visited today. A few more hiccups like no dogs in the dining room but they agreed no issue and were funny about it. Food was excellent,... More

After the recent extension, the revised menu has some really tempting dishes. Try Old Smokey for example: cod, prawns, smoked Pancetta, in Applewood smoked cheese sauce. Gorgeous! A good range of meals and it's also great to see a range of draught ciders that are actually good to drink, rather than the ubiquitous Strongbow. Just be aware of the high... More

The staff were friendly but no one was consistently serving our table so service was particularly slow and I felt like I had to keep making eye contact to get any attention. The mushroom risotto lacked flavour (and mushrooms!) and no idea why cream had been added. It tasted more like rice pudding. Trout salad had little trout. Drinks that... More

We arrived without booking and they got us a table for two without much delay on a sunday. The pub has recently been extended and the main area is a restaurant which has a large room and extension where up to 20 people can sit together, with another 20 on the other side of the room. The restaurant was under... More

Service was great and the food was excellent. Well organised and friendly atmosphere. There were 22 of us and all the meals were hot when served and was well presented. Would definitely eat there again.

My favourite local in the area. Quaint, full of character and a lovely atmosphere. Good menu. Love eating and relaxing in the garden in the summer. Nice and cosy on winter nights.

The Wheelies (as it is known locally !!) has had a recent refurb which makes it far more appealing and a joy to be in. The staff are really friendly and helpful. One major plus for me is the ability to take our dogs in. It is good to see a good range of real pub food and pub food... More

Beautiful pub but disappointed that they were not able to serve lunch at 14:00 due to the kitchen being overwhelmed... Would have thought that they would manage the business better by serving seating customers.
