    The flavour of the food was very good. The roast was a bit on the cool side, could have done with being hot when it was served. Bit mean on the carrot and parsnip as only only have a slice each but the beef was plentiful. Yorkshire puddings good and my roast potatoes are crispier - sorry - bit they are - however I am not mass producing. It was cold sitting at the back of the pub and would not want to sit there again. Would want to sit at the front of the pub when we come back again, which we will do. Staff were excellent, polite, helpful and cheerful, which is why we left a big tip.

    Great meal. I know it is hard at this time but if you advertise table service please honour it. Yes it was busy, but to have to leave your table to find a member of staff to order a drink, leave your table to do the same to place your order and the leave your table to ask for the bill, is not really table service. Really enjoyed the fish and chips, highly recommended. Will be back.

    We were a party of 6 : 4 adults plus two children - along with a fairly young puppy. The restaurant was well spaced out with plenty of room for everyone. Service was immediate and attentive and the food was great ! I'd prevously rated a sister venue up in Chiddingfold as excellent - and this was every bit as good. Many thanks to the Wheelwright team for a great family lunch.

    I looked the ambience and surroundings are very nice, the staff were efficient but the food we had let it down, We had been recommended about the steak but the ribeye wasn’t great fillet was perfect though. And potatoes weren’t cooked enough. Starters and puddings were nice.

    Really enjoyed our meal of Haddock & Chips which we both recommend I don’t know if they were fully booked but it seemed that way. we precooked our table and was seated by the kitchen & serving station which if I had had a choice I would not have sat They are covid compliant and very organised in that area and the staff are really nice and friendly

    We had a wonderful mid week lunch recently so were keen to try the Sunday Roast. We were disappointed with the table as our only view was a stack of high chairs, our fault for not asking to change I suppose. The lunch came within about five minutes, roast pork was fine but my beef overcooked and tough. The cabbage was lovely , also hot. One lump of barely cooked carrot, ditto the parsnip. Nothing was sizzling straight out of the oven, same with potatoes. Service good but disappointed with the food, particularly the beef.

    I have eaten at the Wheelwrights before and enjoyed my experience, this time it was terrible, the chicken tenders were overcooked and dry, the service was slow, wrong meals, I shook the vinegar pot and the lid came off, my wife's mac n cheese someone forgot the cheese when cooking. I could go on!

    We have dined at The Wheelies on many occasion without incident and have enjoyed visiting. However on this occasion one of the waiter's, Jack, had a complete meltdown as he claimed he was busy due to the number of arrivals. He was abrubt, rude and had a hissy fit at our guest who was visiting for the first time. After confronting him about his ridiculous attitude he did apologise, but by that time he'd put a dampener on our evening. The manager Tom and waitress BethAnn did a great job of trying to make up for Jack's shortcomings and the food was great, but I'll make sure Jack doesn't serve us if we ever return.

    I complained about the baguette which had inedible sun-dried tomato's in it. These were tough as old boots, I couldn't even get a knife to cut through them. I got no apology or any compensation just I have told the manager and the chef! Not good. The food is normally very good. This was lunchtime of Friday 9th Oct.
