The Wheatsheaf Inn is a very distinctive, part hang-tiled Edwardian pub with enough vegetation to give Kew Gardens a run for its money. The hanging-basket festooned verandah, creeper-covered pergola and patio and colourful garden just invite a lingering visit with a pint of Sharp’s Atlantic to hand, relaxing after a walk in the enfolding Surrey Hills beloved by Tennyson. There’s opportunity to stay overnight here in one of the comfy rooms so creating an added excuse to engage with a wide-ranging menu of pub classics and thoughtful specials. Kick in with warmed brie, Cumberland sauce and rustic bread, moving along to hake fillet in real ale batter with chips; or honey-glazed ham with egg and chips. There's also a selection of steaks, sandwiches and salads, but be sure to leave room for some sticky toffee pudding, or apple and rhubarb crumble.
