Aqualung . left this review about The Wheatsheaf

As noted below this place has seen a refurbishment in recent years. It's a roughly L shaped pub with red tiles along the bar and a small carpeted area to the immediate right. At the rear is a raised dining area and a patio. I thought the rear part of the pub may be a more modern extension. I didn't make any note of a pool table or darts so they may no longer be here or I completely missed them.
The bar has three hand pumps but two were unused leaving just GK Old Speckled Hen (£3.00) which was in decent nick. The reasonable price may have been a Happy Hour deal.
I preferred this to the TV Sport dominated place over the road.

Refurbished pub, lit up a bit like a gingerbread house in early November, but the interior unfortunately has a lot less character than one might hope for. Little trace of the original layout remains, with an elongated arrangement of seating in front of the bar separated from the larger area further back by a high step. Doom Bar and Westgate (Greene King) What the Fawkes is That? (£3.20) available from two of three handpumps.

The Wheatsheaf is a decent looking white painted pub that looks like it has had a new paint job recently.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the serving bar is to the mid right,there is comfy bench seating to the front,with a raised area to the rear,there is a pool table in this area,the other seating is one american diner table and a couple of normal tables and chairs.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Doom Bar which was a decent drink,the other beers were GK Abbot and a micro beer which was too strong for my liking.
Decent background music was playing.
I quite liked this pub.
