The Catherine Wheel is what I would call a proper village pub, catering for the local population, serving a good selection of beers, wines and ales. The landlord serves behind the bar on most days. There is a separate restaurant off the lounge bar. The menu is a selection of main meals/specials or bar snacks. All food is cooked to... More

If you like non PC, this is the place for you. The locals are friendly. The landlord is a little eccentric but the food is good. Dogs are allowed.

Yet another good meal has been had at the Catherine wheel. Kids can still choose off the normal menu despite it being a Sunday which gives them some choice in case they don't like roast. Sticky toffee pudding is a must - if you have room! Service is good, everyone is very friendly

First of all, what a beautiful village Hemyock is, into which The Catherine Wheel, with its charm and character, fits perfectly. We attended a family gathering; service at the bar was great, the wonderful Doom Bar is on draught, polite and helpful service from the staff, and really lovely food served. The roast potatoes were delicious! Don't hesitate in asking... More

We travel to Hemyock at least once a year, hunting down my husbands anscestors from the Dark Ages (!) and stay in a local B&B and always pop down to The Catherine Wheel for some lovely pub grub. We usually eat in the bar area but have eaten in the restaurant too. Either way I cannot fault the food or... More

Friendly welcome from bar staff and waitresses alike - nicely decorated restaurant - food was tasty and nicely presented - large portion sizes. The pub seemed to lack a bit of ambience but had nice comfy sofas to chill out on .

Popped in with my family en spec, at 7.30pm on a Saturday evening whilst on a weekend break in the area. Lady behind the bar and the waitress were very accommodating and whilst busy, did look to slot the 5 of us in (me, wife and three kids). Had a beer or two whilst we waited in the lounge area...

Perhaps I was expecting or hoping for too much but I certainly wouldn't call this a gastro pub. The food, although presented very well, was mostly not very good. The burger was dry, overcooked, and flavorless. My chicken liver pate starter was bland. The chips though were extremely good! And the waitress was lovely. We eat on a Friday night... More
