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 really enjoyed our Sunday lunch. We were able to park our cars on the street with no problem, just a very short walk away.
We were shown to a very large table, well spaced next to the front window, our drinks orders taken immediately and brought promptly. The food was all excellent. The main course was served on very hot plates with a really good choice of vegetables. And we had the best cheesecake ever! There was just the right wait between courses. The decor was comfortable and relaxing, and the noise level just right. All at a very fair price.

Sadly my beef was over cooked though other meat was fine. Nothing was hot enough. Sunday lunch used to be outstandingly good.

A bit quiet for a Saturday lunchtime, then it is off the beaten track. Staff were very friendly and efficient, service a good pace and very generous portions of good food - none of us quite finished our mains! Good menu selection, inc veggie option (s?)

For traditional pub grub this was fine. Obviously a pub with a local clientele(it was a Fri eve). Not an intimate evening dinner setting.

I really like the Wheel. Nice ambience, & a friendly reception. Good beer and wine selection. The food is fine, but I'd love to see the menu change from time to time, or be regularly updated, or more specials offered once Covid19 begins to loosen its grip. I'd eat there more often if I knew the menu offered some new surprises.

The first meal we have had at the Catherine Wheel since Covid-19. Standard as good as ever. We had the lasagne and the steak and ale pie and both were top quality.
Felt very safe eating there and will be back soon.

Great food, friendly service - but service was sparse, no-one ever came back to offer more drinks throughout the whole meal.

We were also seated next to (and too close to) a large table of males, who clearly were not from the same household, who were loud and boisterous while we were trying to eat. Tables were way too close together (even for a non-Covid envrionment)

Social distancing, or spacing tables out to allow for Covid was simple non-exsitant.

Had a wonderful meal for my birthday.
Have had many meals here and can not fault anything.
I had fish with sweet potato fries instead of chips and my husband enjoyed his well done steak.
The chocolate brownie with ice cream was amazing and Marshfield ice cream is the best ice cream ever (living in Marshfield I would say that of course !!)
Service as always was excellent.
Would definitely recommend The Catherine Wheel for a meal.
Thanks to Roo and her staff.

Very enjoyable dinner with friends in a nice dining room (also airy and with a high ceiling, perfect for dining in at the moment and not at all the usual low-ceilinged pub).
Very nice food, and very little to criticise, only that the portions of ice cream seemed a little small but when my wife questioned this, the waiter/chef came back with more !
Would definitely go back /recommend to others.
