Sunday Lunch
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.

Lovely atmosphere in the pub and a great Sunday lunch. Busy, so sometimes a bit slow, but friendly service and definitely worth the wait.

We booked online, we arrived on time and the table was ready even though the Pub was busy. The table service was very good and our Sunday Lunch experience could not have been better. The Food was well presented, plenty of Veg etc. We can thoroughly recommend the Catherine Wheel for Sunday Lunch.

The only disappointing comment about the experience is that it was extremely limited for gluten free options.

Food was ok but Burger was a frozen burger with no taste.

Staff were beyond terrible - clearly a rift between chef and waiting staff which resulted in shouting across the room for orders and staff telling customers the chef is in a bad mood so no food will be served.

Will never visit again !!!

We visited for Sunday lunch and due to a large birthday party there was a quite a delay with our food arriving at our table. Having said that, the meal was lovely and the service from then on was impeccable.

Busy Sunday so noise levels bound to be high with many diners enjoying a family lunch.

We booked and it all worked perfectly. The Food was very good and the service efficient. We will return to the Catherine Wheel again Im sure. Thank you.

We sat at a lone table wedged between the bar and a fireplace next to the corridor running past the bar. Not very relaxing for a Sunday lunch. We had the main course but didn’t really want to stay for puddings/coffee. Even our son who is pretty laid back about everything thought the table position was not great. The food was good and the service fine, and we would go back, but I would specifically ask not to be seated at that table.

Food was lovely. We all had a different roast, with me having the veggie option. Really nice to see a delicious twist on the normal dry nut roast that I’ve had in other places.
Friendly staff and very welcoming of the dog.
All in all a great experience!

We had a great Sunday lunch at the Cathryn Wheel, we had never visited it previously and booked a table for 7 after a Sunday family walk. Great selection of meals.. and the deserts are not to be missed.. we will be back in the future for more walking and eating..

Just spent the last 8 nights on the quaint village of Marshfield, whilst visiting family.

Dined at The Catherine Wheel twice and the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly on both occasions.

Will certainly come back if in the area in the future.

The vegan moussaka looked disgusting and tasted awful. Salads over dressed and probably some time before service started so soggy and unpleasant. The steak was basic but good and the fish and chips looked good. They did take the Moussaka off the bill. Very popular village pub with good friendly atmosphere and the staff were lovely but the food was basic pub grub.

Waited for 40 minutes at the table to be served a drink, never saw a waiter/waitress for another 30 minutes. Confusion about my order for a dry martini and lemonade. Didn’t appear to know what it was? Eventually after 70 minutes came and took our order. Lost our order, and no real concern about it. Had we decided to re order we would have been there until midnight!! Terrible for Marshfield village!
