A review of The Wheatsheaf by MadHatter written on Sunday 19th of May 2013
I normally avoid carveries on a Sunday, as I find they tend to be insipid, half-warmed, and uninspiring. The Wheatsheaf's, however, was excellent; beautifully-cooked beef where even the little fat was well-worth eating, a crisp Yorkshire, a small piece of mouthwatering sausage-in-bacon with an excellent Cumberland sausage at the core, as many potatoes and hot, fresh vegetables as one cared to shovel onto one's plate, and a good horseradish sauce made up in a bowl - not squirted from a series of sachets.
It's surprisingly hard to do simple British Sunday roast well in quantity, but the Wheatsheaf know how to do it.
Add a pint of well-kept GK IPA, and table service for drinks even though it was very busy, and I was properly happy. The beer selection is limited, even for a GK tied house, but that's my only grumble. And they were happy for us to leave the cars in the car park while we did a good long walk around Quy to build up an appetite..
