Enjoyed a very nice two course meal, Venison pie was a proper pie, baked in a tin, then a hearty slice with a tasty jue. The other half enjoyed the Venison burger. Starters of camembert and beetroot salad were great. Open table app worked a treat, table was ready and waiting on arrival. Worth a visit. Will go back.

Visited Catherine Wheel on a one night stop over in Marshfield, recommended by our host.
Great reception, we arrived an hour early and were accommodated for a pre-meal drink and looked after fantastically till we were shown to our table.
Food was served in good time and excellent , service was impeccable and we felt looked after by attentive staff.
Would recommend the Catherine Wheel to any who are in the locality.

My partner had a madras curry which looked like meat and gravy no real heat to it and i had roasted beetroot and halloumi salad which was passable. In the next room there was a party of people who were quite drunk and kept going to check on someone in the toilet who had been in there for 2 hours plus. Not a pub i will be revisiting.

Great friendly service. The quality and taste of the food was great but would have liked a few more vegetables with the pie. The menu is much reduced than previously and no longer haS any real any standout choices, it’s all pretty much standard good pub grub.

Lovely pub and great staff. We had the roast at the end of the day and the portion size was large with plenty of everything. We didn’t have to wait very long. Couldn’t fault it during these times and social distancing.

We would have liked a fire in the dining room, but as we were the only guests this was rather cheerless - particularly because of the structural problems in there. The bar area had a lovely fire, but was occupied by other people who seemed to be sitting more or less one per table! They were also rather noisy, which at times was quite obtrusive in the dining room. The food was generally good, and we were welcomed, but the bubble and squeak with the venison was almost entirely mashed potato, so a disappointing mix.

On arrival we were given the choice of two tables, and decided the one closest to the bar was the best option for a bit more atmosphere. Given how close the table was to the bar, we struck up a good rapport with the bar staff, who were very friendly and helpful. The menu had something for everyone except (surprisingly) a ubiquitous over priced beef burger! I always look for a specials board, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed with a Partridge Hot Pot, which was absolutely delicious, and at £12 including a choice of potatoes as a side was an absolute bargain and very tasty! The rest of the menu was also reasonably priced, and everyone enjoyed their respective choice of food.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by one and we will be definitely be returning at the earliest opportunity.

Had a lovely sunday lunch with friends - plenty of veggies, cooked properly and delicious. Meat a tiny bit grisly and Yorkshires seemed a bit soggy. Noisy room - we've been there before and asked to move - we should have known better this time!! Overall, though, a lovely place, excellent service and great beer choice too.

Was a lovely place to go but unfortunately when we went it was just after the bank holiday and there was less that half the menu left so no veggie option other than a salad for my husband and although he wasn’t too impressed with no other choice given he did enjoy his salad and had to order a few sides, Service was good but couldn’t order drinks at the table as a member of staff hadn’t turned up, was such a shame as it really was a lovely place otherwise.

We’ve been going to the Catherine Wheel for some years now with friends and/ or family and always have an excellent meal. We love going there and it is certainly the favourite place to eat for both myself and my brother. My husband is veggie/ vegan and can always find something on the menu, though would like more choice, which is often enjoyed by non- vegans/ veggies, of course!

Shall be there again soon!

Love this new booking and feedback site!

Thanks again to the staff at the Catherine Wheel.

The Catherine Wheel is a proper village pub. The bar area was busy bustling and noisy. But the dining area is a separate room which avoid makes it good for converation. The menu has the pub classics but also a good selection of other things. Good food, good size portions and good value. Highly recommended.

I liked the Cathrine Wheel very much. The lady behind the bar was very friendly, the decoration was tasteful and it felt like a locals pub. The food (Sea Bass) was excellent and arrived faster than I expected, given the number of people ordering. I will be going back.
