We have been visiting the wheatsheaf a for almost 15 years and stayed 3 times in the accommodation, last time around 5 years ago. During that time there has been many changes of hands and each time the quality and service deteriorates, what doesn't change is the decor - none of the owners have so much as repainted in all...

Slow to be served drinks but then had a good hour with laughs and the locals. Friendly place and atmosphere. Drinks were reasonably priced and the food being served also looked good. Maybe needs more staff on Saturday.

Due to my planning skills, I got to the hotel later than I should have -- not talking about check-in, but about nearly missing a friend's wedding! The wonderful folks at the hotel were a massive help and I probably would have missed the ceremony if it weren't for their willingness to deal with a flustered stranger. The hotel itself... More

Good tasty honest and reasonably priced food. A proper English pub how they used to be. We had mains and puds and all were excellent. Hubby says the beer was good too. They allow dogs and do bed and breakfast which I would definitely try if we did not have a caravan in the area. Sunday lunch would be worth... More

We were in Ludlow for the day and saw their advertising board so called in for lunch. The beer and food were both excellent and could not be faulted, however getting more than a grunt out of the monosyllabic barman was impossible and rather spoilt the experience. He could do with some training in customer care. If he was having... More

We stayed here for two nights last weekend. The Wheatsheaf is what I call I proper pub. It was cozy and welcoming. From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel welcome and so was our dog, Bear.
