Venture down the leafy lanes of St Nicholas Hurst and discover a gem that may well be the perfect country pub. The Wheelwright’s Arms is a hit with regulars and visitors alike for one very good reason – the attention to detail is second-to-none. Attentive managers Daryl and Katie ensure that the beer is well-kept, making for a perfect pint, while the original menus feature local produce, all freshly prepared to order. Simplicity and quality are paramount to the pub’s success. An unpretentious but excellently accomplished menu is available, featuring traditional dishes with an adventurous twist. Expect the likes of queen scallops sautéed with smoked bacon and spring onions in garlic butter to start, followed by slow-cooked pork belly with apple fritters, Dauphinoise potato, wilted greens and cider sauce. Ingredients used are carefully sourced, with meat coming from award-winning butchers Walter Rose & Sons of Devises. Allergies are well catered for, thanks to the impressive gluten-free menu. Seasonal and guest ales change regularly, so be sure to pop back to try something new. The Wheelwright’s Arms is the ideal place to relax after a bracing walk around nearby Dinton Pastures Country Park; muddy boots and muddy paws are welcome. From the warm welcome to the friendly farewell and everything in between, nothing is left to chance at The Wheelwright’s Arms.
