The Wheatsheaf at Bough Beech is one of those fantastic pubs you donít want to leave. It has a wonderful atmospheric interior, the service is warm and friendly, the food is good, it has an extensive wine list, a couple of well kept local ales, a cider on draught and thereís a pleasant garden too for those warmer days.
Behind the pretty hung-tile exterior is a small Tudor hall, its origins are 14th century and itís though to have been a hunting lodge owned by HenryV. Whatever its provenance itís a beautiful building with a high oak vaulted frame, open studding and exposed brickwork. At its centre is a sturdy chimney stack with large open fireplaces either side. In the main bar the stone mantle is signed and dated 1607.
The walls are covered in a collection of weapons, farm implements, stuffed animals, musical instruments and exotic unidentified items, possibly African. All this Ďstuffí adds to the relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The Wheatsheaf -
Well we loved the atmosphere and staff but when my wife Carole and I paid a visit earlier this year it was closed Just a small note on the bar door window advising the obvious. Can anyone tell me what is intended.Has it re-opened I wonder.
March 2013. This pub closed a few weeks ago.
Have made the trek down from London to this pub a couple of times, and each time have had a great and memorable experience. The food is always plentiful and excellent, the bar staff both kind and knowledgeable and the pub itself is as great as it sounds. Recommended.
