This pub has had a refurb since my last visit and the character especially in the left hand bar side of the pub has been lost as my previous 2 Saturday afternoons visits a couple of years had seen a very local feeling with some banter and local characters.

Very much food orientated now. Pleasant enough decor wise with 6 hand pumps that saw 3 different beers on as due to the pumps location on the bar clips are each directed to the bar or lounge side.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Wheatsheaf

A traditional stone built pub on a country road a couple of miles outside Bath. It’s certainly changed a bit since I was last in here, but to be fair that was a good few years ago.

There are two bars, one either side of the front door, as well as a decent sized beer garden adjacent to the car park. To the left is a smallish room with three or four wooden tables, exposed stone walls and an old fireplace. The bar to the right is somewhat bigger, and has plastered walls in two-tone paint, cream and gastro-pub brown. The floors are all reclaimed boards, and the upright, plain wooden chairs remind me of dining chairs which perhaps give it the impression of a pub more geared up for food. However, I’m not sure this is actually the case; although most of the tables had menus on, they were not laid for food in any other way, and there were a few punters in there who were just having a drink. There was a small LCD TV in one corner, but this was not on when we visited. Another old fireplace was at the back of the room, and a couple of pictures adorned the walls along with a stuffed bird of some sort in a glass case. The tables all had a vase of fresh carnations, and there were even some twigs in a vase. :-)

The menu looked to be a decent enough “pub grub” affair, with a short selection of dishes such as pie of the day, scampi & chips, etc. and whilst we didn’t eat, and thus can’t comment in too much detail, first impressions were that it was perhaps a bit pricey – most of the dishes were around the £10 mark - even the Ham, Egg & Chips was £10.50. There were also a couple of chalkboards on the wall listing a few specials and the pudding selection.

The solitary beer on offer was Doom Bar, although there were another three pumps on the bar that appeared to have run out – these were Best, Deuchars IPA and Butcombe. The ciders were Blackthorn and Taunton Traditional.
