Welcome to The Catherine Wheel, Marshfield

A village pub with real ales, great food and accommodation near Bath

The Catherine Wheel is a 17th century country pub in the historic conservation village of Marshfield. It’s just eight miles north of the Roman city of Bath (a World Heritage site) and 13 miles from the port of Bristol, named European Green Capital 2015.

Marshfield stands close to where three county borders meet at Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset. This is at the southern gateway to the rolling Cotswold hills which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our chefs are highly regarded for creating wholesome, freshly-prepared dishes, using local produce as much as possible.

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.

We visited the Catherine Wheel for a second time on 19th January.
Again it didn't disappoint, the Sunday lunch was fabulous.
I had Belly of Pork, my Wife had the Chicken and Mother in Law the Lamb.
All fantastic and we shall return again!!!

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.

This is a great pub, very friendly with good food and open through the afternoons. I've visited regularly to meet a friend every 2-3 months over the last couple of years and it's always been very enjoyable.

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.

As ever the Catherine Wheel performed. The food was superb and value. Staff were as always very friendly.

Personally my only concern is their coffee lets them down - only cafetières are available which is a shame for coffee lovers. Often the strength of coffee is either way too strong or very very weak! Not an issue to stop me going there but just a shame when all else is superb. The place is always full and has a great ambience. Well done once again.

I took my mum for lunch on her birthday. She’s 87 and has been enjoying The Catherine Wheel for many years. Since her stroke it’s been harder to get to, so it was a lovely surprise when I took her there. The food was great as usual, simple, well done pub grub, with chunky chips and huge portions. Lovely service throughout. We were able to bring our little dog who also enjoyed the experience watching people come and go. No issues filing his water bowl or being able to put his little bed down beside our table. Welcoming, comfortable, satisfying and consistent. Well done guys !!

It was perfect for a family gathering. All the staff were very pleasant and attentive. And on Mothering Sunday too, when they were run off their feet.

Highly recommended, and we will be going again.
