Woodford, Salisbury, SP4 6NQ
Nestled in the heart of the Woodford Valley, amidst riverside gardens, rolling countryside and the ancient sites of Heale House and Stonehenge, The Wheatsheaf is the perfect spot in which to rest and refuel. Unspoilt and charmingly traditional, The Wheatsheaf made us feel right at home as we settled in to sate a healthy appetite. After roaming the countryside, we had built up quite an appetite, and I devoured my starter of plump tiger prawns pan-fried in garlic butter paired with malted sourdough and garlic mayonnaise. At this Hall & Woodhouse establishment, you'll not only find their award-winning ales such as Badger Fursty Ferret and Tanglefoot propping up the bar, but also appearing throughout the menu, adding extra depth to many a hearty dish. My starter was followed by Forum lager-battered fish and chips with tartare sauce, crushed minted peas, triple-cooked chips and lemon. I could taste the quality of the ingredients; it offered a fresh, delicious flavour that you only get with top-notch produce. Feeling suitably snug and tended to by the charming team, we decided to indulge in dessert and were not disappointed. The chocolate and coconut torte with almond cream was mouth-wateringly good and just so happens to be vegan. When the weather is kind, the large garden is a great spot to enjoy sunny days in the fresh air with an al fresco tipple. For the perfect meal to go with a perfect day out in Wiltshire, I'd certainly recommend The Wheatsheaf.
