The Catherine Wheel
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.
The best Sunday lunch. Great food and service as always. Never disappointed
This pub exceeded our expectations - Sunday Roast was superb with various side dushes, fresh veg & good gravy - as good as you can get. Dessert was off the scale and coffee was smooth and in large jug with side choc. Just such a lot of detail went into the offering and the Catherine Wheel deserves full praise for what they delivered - don't change anything cus we'll be back soon!
Had a lovely meal with friends and our kids. The staff were great and very accommodating and the food was excellent and good value. The pub is very quaint and comfortable.
Sunday lunch great quality, quantity and staff.....
Quite surprised and disappointed really as the reviews were very good. The quality of the food was poor, clearly cooked from frozen, mushy and tasteless. The fish pie was like wallpaper paste. After comparing it to what was coming out on the other tables I’d say choosing the fish and chips and fish pie was a bad choice. The roast turkey looked better from a distance. Strange dining experience as it’s quiet and partially empty, pairing that with the really underwhelming food made for a generally bad experience. Really friendly landlady, which was a small positive. A shame really as, being new to the area, we had high hopes.
Had a SUPERB meal as always.
Food was wonderful and lots of it too!
Service was excellent.
Our local pub !! Definitely highly recommend it to everyone.
Fantastic food with large portion sizes struggled to finish and tasted great
A favourite of ours, so accommodating to its customers. Never had a bad meal! X
This restaurant/pub is a little off the beaten track but well worth the drive. The seating is very good, large tables, there were 7 in our party and plenty of room with comfy chairs. We ordered food at the bar and once that arrived, the waiter and waitress were more than happy to continue taking our orders for drinks and deserts at the table. There were lots to chose from on the menu, we had two vegetarians in our party and there was more than enough choice for them too.
The bill was not expensive, the whole experience was great and we will definitely go back
Nice surroundings and good lunchtime food, enjoyable atmosphere
Great food! Absolutely superb sunday lunch. No problems at all asking for gluten free options and one meal to be cooked well done. All food came out exactly as asked and tasted fantastic!
We had the Sunday roast dinner and it was delicious. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the sticky toffee pudding was great. We shall definitely be back.
A lovely find in a beautiful village. Looked very enticing and atmospheric from the outside and the ambience was excellent. We ate in a lovely dining room just off the bar, and we were well looked after by the lovely lady who served us
This is a one of our favourite places. The ambience is just right, the staff are all nice people and the food was very good.
Our second visit to The Catherine Wheel and it lived up to the first visit. The staff are friendly and helpful. The steak and kidney pie was exceptional, made with a flaky pastry and filled with steak, kidney and a delicious gravy. Portions are big but leave room for a pudding, I had fruit crumble with Marshfield ice cream, the only downside was the scoop of ice cream wasn't that big.
A real find in a beautiful village. Limited parking but delicious food!
Lovely time while bisiting the Cotswolds! Such a great find
Lovely pub with a fine range of beers and wines and an excellent menu providing good food in a relaxed environment.
Very pleasant Sunday lunch after a morning spent at nearby Castle Combe. Two roasts - one chicken, one lamb - with generous portions of vegetables at very reasonable prices. Starters and sweets available as well. Attentive service and decent beer added up to a most enjoyable experience. Would certainly visit again. Within easy travelling distance from Bath and Bristol.
great Sunday lunch, excellent service, we'll come again
The food was great and service welcoming and efficient.
Lovely tasty food and a great choice. Will definitely go back. Everyone enjoyed their food.
First time and wont be the last - Sunday lunch was simply amazing
Great meal at local pub. Be going to this place for 20 years glad it’s not a gastropub.
Still comfortable for locals and friendly.
A beautiful Queen Anne (and earlier) building the Catherine Wheel is a genuine local pub. The food is unpretentious and reasonably priced. There is a small (smokers') garden at the side. Usually a choice of 3 ales together with lagers and ciders.
Very friendly. Lovely Sunday lunch. Found the place by chance and felt very lucky to have done so.
Outstanding food and service. I’d be a regular if I lived anywhere near there! Charming rooms, very nice decor and the food was in the top 3 while walking the Cotswold Way.
Excellent service and food. Good size quality portions. Great old pub/restaurant in a quint village setting.
Not been here for a while & the menu had completely changed from the last time. On first glance it seemed there wasn’t much on there any of us wanted. We ordered our starters & mains. I tweaked my main from what was on the menu & the staff were very accommodating. When the food came out it was delicious & plenty of it. Staff very friendly & helpful. My only gripe would be very quiet when we were first there, we were in the dining room on our own but then later when we moved into the bar it filled up with lots of young girls & guys who were very loud & swearing. Not sure we would rush back.
When I go out for Sunday lunch, I like to have good food, served with a smile and to be able to chat without shouting! The Catherine Wheel provided all three. We enjoyed every minute and every mouthful. Thanks to the Chef and to all who were serving, you ensured we had a great time. We will be back!
We used this pub for an evening family meal after a day out. With two young children in our group the staff were very accommodating and friendly, nothing too much trouble. We would certainly use it again.
Eleven people were entirely happy with an assortment of dishes - starters, mains and
puddings . . . and not one criticism.
We have always loved the Catherine Wheel and have been there many times over the past 20 years. However this was a disappointing visit for lunch last Friday. The place seemed empty and lacking in atmosphere and the person on duty behind the bar was distracted and verging on the unfriendly. The menu was quite limited and not as interesting as on previous visits. However the food was good - well cooked and plentiful. We wondered whether there was a particular reason, such as a change of management. Our waitress was lovely - friendly and smiling, but it didn’t make up for what was a rather disappointing experience, especially as we had recommended it as a great pub.
Excellent Sunday lunch and made very welcome by staff
Excellent Sunday lunch as before been here quite a few times on other occasions and never been disappointed
Visited foe an evening meal with friends whilst spending a short break in the area. Staff were welcoming and food was of a high standard.
A very warm welcome as always the food selection excellent and extremely tasty and well cooked
Back rooms not as lovely as the rest of the bar but a lovely place to have lunch. Really great value!
First time I've been through the door in 40 years, still how I remember it., I used to drink in here with my family who lived in the village. Staff were excellent, food very good and the beer was they best I had all weekend. We met up with friends form Cheddar and they also thought it was worth the trip
Only gripe, no wheelchair access or toilet, not good in this day and age.
First visit, great food and good service, welcoming staff
