Graham Coombs left this review about The Wheatsheaf

A friendly and cosy little pub with good leaded windows and a comfortable feel. One room with the bar at the side and a small dining area behind. An upstairs room was signed also. Three handpumps offered London Pride with Golden Best and Knowles Spring from Timothy Taylor.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Wheatsheaf

Former William Younger pub in the brewer's Tudor style, retaining much stained glass in the front and side windows and on the bar gantry (with the overall effect being a bit spoilt by the modern glass front door). Inside, the small rectangular bar is divided by a low partition in front of the rear seating area. Not a lot of furniture, but there are also a couple of benches out front and a standing area in the side alley. Traditional dark-wood furniture and decor. Upstairs function room (not visited). Three handpumps, offering Landlord, Tribute (£4.55) and Bombardier Burning Gold on this visit. Overall, not a bad option if in the area.

I used to be a regular in here when I worked in the area, so haven't been for nearly thirty years when we drank bottles of the blue labelled Newcastle Brown Ale 'amber', which was discontinued in the late 1980s.

Unsurprisingly nothing at all seems to have changed, except that the TV has lost a lot of weight! Lovely example of brewers' Tudor, built for William Younger by John T. Quilter in 1931 with beams, leaded lights and nogging below the window. Sadly, despite our mid-weed, late evening visit, there was no-one in the house. The East European barman told me he was about to close - 10.20 pm - so we had a swift one and were off.

Beers on: Sharp's Doom Bar, Brain's SA and St. Austell's Proper Job (£4.25) which was fine.

I'd come here again as there's a great 5-pub (formerly 6) mini-crawl around here.
