Large, freindly Ember Inns pub (and hotel) just north of Woking town centre – opposite the ‘recreation common’ (think park).
Like the other Ember Inns pub in Woking (the Sovereigns), the Wheatsheaf always used to have the reputation of being ‘not that good’. But a recent refurb and renewed emphasis in real ale has meant that the Wheatsheaf can now join the frankly tiny list of Woking pubs worth visiting.
As you enter through the front door, the bar is to the right. There are seating areas immediately to the right and straight ahead towards the back of the pub. Also, to the right beyond the bar there is another large seating area at the front of the pub.
On the bar there are three hand pumps all serving real ale – no real cider here I’m afraid. Although the selection is smaller than the Sovereigns or the closer Wetherspoons, the quality of the beers on offer is very good. The Titanic Cappuccino on my last visit was superb.
Food is available most of the time, from an extensive menu. But I’ve never eaten here. Children’s options and deals are also available – note that children are only permitted if adults are eating.
As far as I can tell there is no rear garden but there are 3 outside tables at the front of the pub/hotel.
Free wi-fi is available – Ember Inns text you the code.
Unfortunately I know nothing about the quality of the accomodation in the hotel but as well as the free wi-fi, free breakfast and free parking are offered too.
Yes, worth a trip.
