The Wheatsheaf | Traditional country pub with garden in Woodford

Welcome

A charming country pub near Salisbury

Nestled in the Woodford Valley between Salisbury and Stonehenge, the Wheatsheaf is the epitome of a traditional English country pub.

Ideal for walkers, the pub not only has its own pub walk, but is only two miles from the original Salisbury Cathedral, which was was located on top of Old Sarum, as well as just a few miles up the valley from Amesbury, which is one of the oldest known human settlements in England, due to the river Avon, which never freezes even in the harshest winters.

Starting life as a modest valley farm house in the mid 1600’s, the original building has been extended at least five times and now boasts roaring log fires and oak beams, ideal for those long winter evenings, as well as a beautiful garden, which comes into its own during the summer.

Following the Government’s instruction on the 20th March 2020, we have temporarily closed our doors to protect our guests and our team from the risk of spreading COVID-19.

We are now focussing on the immediate future and how we can continue to make people’s day during the temporary closure of our pubs. We will also ensure that we are well prepared to re-open when it is right to do so.

Colourful Coffee

Our delicious ‘Rocket Espresso’ comes from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters and is the perfect combination of great coffee and good ethics. The special blend comprises 100% Arabica coffee beans from a single farm in Colombia and a co-operative project in Peru, which works to directly benefit the families and communities involved. The result of this is a naturally sweet and full-bodied coffee with notes of chocolate and caramel to finish.
