Wonderful food and service. This was by far the best restaurant we tried in the Embleton area. Obviously home made. Fresh and well balanced menu. So glad we found it.

Super Evening Meal 4 adults and small dog visited pub June 2021. Booked via email week before arrival as its really popular with locals and tourists alike. Dogs welcome inside restaurant. Tables well spread out. Staff super friendly. Ordered 2 x Beer battered fish and chips, one chicken pie and one cod loin with black pudding and mash. All prepared and cooked on premises. Absolutely delicious. Would thoroughly recommend pub to anyone but remember to book in advance if you want to guarantee a table indoors.

Exceptional!!! Just returned from what I feel is one of the best pub/restaurants I have ever visited. We sat outside under the gazebo, attractive seating area with gorgeous views. To begin we shared some fish goujons which were so fresh, piping hot with fabulous fish, very substantial with home made tartar sauce. We both had a curry which was served with homemade naan. Beautifully served with a side of yogurt and helping of chilies. Utterly delicious, probably the best curry I have ever had. We' re both foodies, eat out a lot and love cooking, so totally appreciate the chefs here. Pudding was a South African dish, Malva pudding. A take on our sticky toffee pud, but somehow this one over shadowed it. Plentiful sauce and a fresh egg custard. Really wish we were staying around the area to sample more dishes, but instead will highly recommend for others. Enjoy!!

Fantastic We hadn’t booked and called in on the off chance. The staff were so accommodating and we were given a table outside in the gazebo area. Fantastic views, fantastic staff and the food was fantastic too. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

Fantastic Food The Wheatsheaf was recommended to us by the Guest House we were staying in close by and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was equally as good. Just one note, especially during these times of Covid restrictions- you do need to book in advance!

Tier 4 Takeaway was delicious! Congratulations to the Wheatsheaf team for a fabulous takeaway meal on New Year’s Eve. We had hoped to eat-in but the Tier 4 change scuppered that. However, Tash and the team served up a super, nicely presented and delicious takeaway for us instead.

1st visit After being recommended by family members we booked a table. Food was delicious and all cooked from scratch. You definitely need to book as it is a very small pub/restaurant. Will visit again when tier restrictions allow.

We’ll be back. Welcoming hosts, wonderful food in a friendly atmosphere. All delicious but the Dynamite prawn starter is a must.
