About The Wheatsheaf - Chester-le-Street
Located inside a 16th century coaching inn, The Wheatsheaf is a traditional pub with lots of charm. The perfect location to spend an afternoon cosied up enjoying hearty British, or for some drinks in the evening, The Wheatsheaf is a fixture in Chester le Street, situated on Durham Road. We recommend starting with some Scottish smoked salmon or goats cheese before moving on to a classic main like the stuffed chicken (chicken wrapped in pancetta and stuffed with sundried tomatoes and asparagus served with fondant potato and a tomato reduction). With its delicious cuisine and warm setting, The Wheatsheaf is a popular choice for both lunch and dinner in Chester le Street’s town centre– book a table in advance to avoid disappointment!

The restaurant looks fantastic since it has been refurbished. A great menu choice and prices to go with it. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Will be back very soon.
We were there for my sons birthday.. The service was excellent and staff very friendly.. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals..This was our second visit would definitely recommend the wheatsheaf.
Friendly staff, restaurant had great Christmas atmosphere and the food was great.Great place to visit. Did not have long to wait was very satisfied with meal.
The food was very nice and the waitress was very helpful too. Will be going back. Only problem we had was it was cold in the restaurant on Saturday night we were by the window so maybe that is why, and there was not a dessert menu and the waitress had to tell us what was available and there were only 3 desserts. I presume they will have a better choice on desserts sometime in the future. Otherwise, the food and service was faultless.
We made our booking online after reviewing the menu which was posted on the website. On arrival at the restaurant we were presented with a single page menu which bore no resemblance to the menu displayed on the website. The waitress explained that a new chef had just started that morning and had changed the menu. We made our selection from the new menu and asked to look at the wine menu. We requested a bottle of merlot, only to be told that there was only shiraz or cabernet sauvignion available. We ordered a bottle of cabernet sauvignion. A selection of warm bread was brought to the table on a slate platter but no side plates or cutlery were provided. The bread was delicious. The starters which we selected were delicious. As we were running low on wine by this time we requested another bottle of cabernet sauvignion, only to be told that the wine delivery had not been received that day and that there was now only white wine available. We ordered a bottle of sauvignion blanc. The main courses which we had selected were presented. These were also beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Overall, the food provided was first class, and the waitress was attentive and very apologetic. She did the best she could in an embarrassing situation. we will try the restaurant again in the future, hopefully they may have their act a little tighter by then.
Lovely Mothers Day meal. Staff really great with us and nothing too much trouble when dealing with the kids. Will be back later in summer when the garden is open.
Nice little pub.clean bright and spacious.service was good with pleasant and friendly staff. Did not have to wait long for food to be served and was hot and tasty.
Waited over an hour for our lunch! The portion sizes where very small. Won't be returning. However the waitress was very polite and apologised regular.
