Drinking at The Wheatsheaf

Our Beer selection is varied, ranging from the finest of the locally brewed Ales such as Bowness Bay ‘Swan Gold’ to Award Winning Craft beers such as the Goose Island Midway IPA.

Gin & Rum made their appearance to Englands shores in the the same century the Inn was founded and 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 BlackPowder Rhubarb Gin.  For the yo ho ho Rum lover, we have a some of the best around, try Kracken or Deadmans Finger Coffee 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.

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.
