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.

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.

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.

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.
