The Wheatsheaf Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
A quintessential village pub with heaps of character and charm, The Wheatsheaf Inn in Dry Doddington fascinates all who visit. Low ceilings, rustic exposed brick and atmospheric lighting create a cosy, inviting environment in which to enjoy outstanding food and drink. The pub’s pebbled outdoor area provides the perfect spot in which to dine in the sunshine in fairer months.
Contemporary interpretations of classically inspired dishes populate The Wheatsheaf’s inspired seasonal menus, with fare prepared using local produce wherever possible. Why not begin with Thai-spiced fishcakes served with spiced sweetcorn salsa and fresh coriander, before moving on to a handmade pie of the day? Think crisp golden pastry encasing delicious fillings such as rich beef and Stilton or creamy chicken and leek, served with hand-cut chips, garden peas and rich gravy. For afters, chocolate and hazelnut brownie, perfectly paired with salted caramel ice cream, will go down a treat. The Wheatsheaf’s bar stocks four rotating real ales at all times, backed by a cadre of Continental lagers and between 20 and 25 world wines.
Easily located just a stone’s throw from local interest site, the Church of St James – the tower of which boasts an impressive tilt, leaning more than the Tower of Pisa in Italy – visitors can always expect friendly, welcoming service in a relaxed, homely environment.
