The Wheatsheaf at Beetham

Eating OutAccommodation

The Wheatsheaf Inn sits at the heart of a truly special landscape, an area recognised as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beetham is famed for it’s unique wildlife, stunning scenery, hunting, fishing, superb walking and historically important buildings. The Wheatsheaf Inn has been serving Beer and Food to visitors, sightseers and locals alike since 1609.

400 years ago the first brick was laid and The Wheatsheaf was founded. Historical events since that time have left their mark on Inn, creating a building full of character. The Wheatsheaf is the place where you can enjoy a pint, a beautiful glass of wine or delicious food in relaxed, comfortable company surrounded by walls that are steeped in history.

We welcome all weary travellers, their families and their dogs.

We serve meals all day, every day. We are open for tea, coffee and scones from 11am, meals from 12 noon to 9pm.

Up in the rafters of the Inn we have rooms for the traveller seeking to rest their head for night or two. The Grade 1 listed village Church offers a scenic view and a pleasant reminder of times gone by with the ringing of bells.

The cosy rooms offer our guests a night away in a historic building, with all the comfort and conveniences of modern life. All rooms include; Daily room service, hairdryer, linen & towels, television, Tea & Coffee making facilities and free, superfast WIFI.

Our newly refurbished Bar & Dining area welcomes you to dine and drink with us in a traditional, comfortable setting. The space is ideal for a family get together or a lunch with with friends. The Inn is the perfect place to come after enjoying a walk in the superb local scenery – muddy boots and paws are welcome at the Inn.

The Inn has been refurbished to a high standard using local craftsmen to uncover the hidden architectural treasures which have so long been forgotten. The refurbishment has opened up and lightened a space which was once dark and dated, now the Inn is both traditional and modern, creating a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Hops hang from the ceilings and are complimented by beautiful paintings and soft, warm colours.

We would like to invite you to come and enjoy the bar and dining area and celebrate with us the refurbishment of the Inn which was once so integral to the heart of the local community.

Our Beer selection is varied, ranging the finest of the locally brewed Ales to Award Winning Craft beers such as the Goose Island Midway.

Gin & Rum made their appearance to Englands shores in the the same century the Inn was founded, in homage to this we have selected the finest of these tipples for your enjoyment.

Enjoy locally distilled Gins such as The Lakes Gin, or go for the more unusual and modern of the spirit such as Eden Mill Rose Pink Gin.

For the yo ho ho Rum lover, we have a some of the best around, try Mount Gay Black Barrel or Bumbu Caramel Spiced Rum on the rocks with Ginger Beer.

Pull up a stool at our bar or take a seat in our taproom and let us serve you something special. Take a look at full drinks menu….

For those looking for something a little less potent, sit down, grab a newspaper and enjoy a freshly ground coffee or a pot of loose leaf tea, served with homemade shortbread. Take look at our hot drink menu….
