What became today's Wheatsheaf was built in 1609, since when many others have contributed to the look and feel of this impressive corner-site pub. Now newly refurbished in soothing tones of grey and creamy-white, it continues to appeal not just to villagers, but to visitors intent on exploring the surrounding outstanding landscape, perhaps to make a secret wish at nearby Fairy Steps. Local ales, award-winning craft beers and a healthy wine and spirits collection offer a wide choice as accompaniment to, for instance, devilled kidneys as a starter, with fish – delivered daily from Fleetwood – and chips, lamb shank pie or maybe vegan falafel burger with minted houmous to follow. Sandra's sticky toffee pudding is a firm favourite.
