On Friday we called in at The Wheatsheaf in Barton Upon Humber at about 6pm.
Barton upon Humber is a small market town on the south bank of the river, close to the Humber Bridge where there are a number of places to eat.
The Weatsheaf is a traditional ‘local’ pub serving real ale and home cooked food.
We had not booked a table but there was one available for us despite it already being quite busy. There was plenty of choice on the menu, I chose a spicy bean burger and Brian chose a rib eye steak from the specials board.
We waited for about twenty minutes which we thought was excellent.
If you’re particular about how your steak is cooked, I have to say that the chef here got it just right; succulent and seasoned, with home made chips, tomato and mushroom, and plenty of crispy, fresh salad.
The spicy bean burger was just that, a spicy bean burger, probably from the freezer. But it was well presented in a tasty brioche bun with chips, salad and homemade coleslaw. It was good to see a selection of vegetarian options clearly labelled on the menu.
Overall we enjoyed our evening at The Wheatsheaf. For the two meals, a pint of Lager and a medium wine we paid about £34, which we thought was reasonable for freshly prepared food. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff were polite and helpful. The one downside is the small car park which we struggled to get out of. Alternative parking was available across the road but those arriving after us preferred to squeeze in.
Remember, this is quite a small and often busy place so while we were lucky we would recommend booking. In our opinion well worth a visit.
