First and foremost great value for money, this is not over priced posh nosh. Good old fashioned home cooked food and pleasant ambience, staff very accommodating. Been several times now and Food been consistently good enjoying every meal, especially proper chips. Home made pies recommended as is the Sunday lunch. If your looking for some where to eat out on the hoof, this is the place to try, you wont be disappointed.

I have eaten wonderful traditional food in this great pub many times over the last 2years and never had a bad meal, the chef is a great cook, he makes tasty home made pies & has even catered for my Vegan niece & vegetarian sister, who said he makes the best nut roast & veg curry she has ever eaten. The Sunday dinners are delicious & just like mum made, best Sunday dinner I have had out in years, with fully risen home made Yorkshire puddings, tender, tasty meat & yummy roast, you really can't go wrong eating in this establishment. The staff are pleasant & helpful with a happy nature, they create a great atmosphere in the pub with the locals. This is great food you can't miss out on. In a nice location, run by nice people. I look forward to eating there again, defiantly one of my favouret places. Book up if you can as you don't want to be disappointed & miss out, they are popular & get busy.

Date of visit: Friday 23rd March 2012 Mixed party of four We go out regularly on a Friday evening to pubs which provide both food and drink within a 6-8 mile radius of our homes. This was our first visit to the Wheatsheaf. A friend in our local had mentioned the Wheatsheaf and we had also seen a small review in the Warrington Guardian so we decided to take a chance. We were not disappointed. We has booked a table over the telephone earlier in the week just in case they were busy. The greeting received from the staff was warm. Our order was taken at the table. Selection available was average however the quality was not. It was superb! Beware of the starters - they are a mini meal in themselves. We had asked for a 20min break between the starter and main courses at the time we placed our order. This was increased to 30 mins at the suggestion of the young lady who served us. Wise decision. The mains arrived and the first thing that struck us was that is was definetly home cooked. None of the "chicken ding" nonsense that some of the pub chains offer. The 'pie of the day' was wonderful as were all the other dishes. On the beverage front the pub caters for the real ale enthusiasts. My friend & I are cider drinkers; preferably the bottled variety of which I am afraid they did not have in stock when we first arrived but miraculously appeared before we had consumed our first pint of draft. The wine I am assured by the ladies in our party was most palatable. (They had two bottles just to be sure!) Would we come back to the Wheatsheaf later in the year? A resounding Yes was everyone's decision.
