The Wheatsheaf is a newly refurbished yet olde worlde inn that lies in the pretty hamlet of Little Gomersal, near Cleckheaton. The traditional stone-built building has a lovely, hidden beer garden at the rear and another area at the front. Inside, the refurbishment has brought the furnishings and fixtures up to date whilst retaining the original features of open fires, wooden beams and low ceilings. There are two rooms for dining and a snug for drinkers. Foodwise, the menus feature fresh locally sourced produce turned into classic British pub food. There are seasonal specialities, a constantly changing specials board and great-value prices make this a big draw for families and locals. The area is popular with walkers and cyclists who use the pub to eat in before or after exploring the countryside, Sundays are extremely popular with the traditional Yorkshire roast. Real ales, draught lagers and ciders and an interesting wine list add to the mix in this friendly atmospheric inn. Open for food Monday-Friday 12pm-2pm and 5.30pm-9.30pm, Saturday 12pm-4pm and 5,30pm-9pm and Sunday 12pm-5.30pm.
Booked a table at lunch time as very busy.
Food very good and staff rushed off their feet .
Ist course good and pudding did NOT arrive the waiter forgot our oder and cancelled and payed and left .
Helpings TOO LARGE and over welmed at the size of servings and possible waste .When could be served more small portions to suit O.A.P s .Good value for money and may call again when passing ..
Lovely pub with great food! well worth a visit, everyone should try it at least once, you won't be disappointed!
Food amazing, let down slightly by disorganised service, but don't let that put you off. Great value delicious food. Just needs a more organised manager who is a bit less abrupt. our experience has been the same each time we go, and if we go with friends we always warn them about the service highlighting that its worth it for the food!
I have now been to the Wheatsheaf many times at lunchtime, but mainly in the evening and can honestly say the menu is wonderful, the specials are a must and we continue to go back with new friends and family to show them this little gem of a find to dine out. The staff are always very friendly and attentive - nothing is too much trouble. The portions are very substantial - in fact I have never tried a dessert due to this fact - although my husband has sampled many - all meet with his high approval. My only negative comment is that it is a victim of its own success and you really must book in order to guarantee you will get a table - so we do that every time and have never been disappointed.
Excellent Food, Good Service. Real Shame they have put a kids menu on as it just encourages folk to visit with screaming kids in tow. Adults mainly like to go out for a "quiet" drink & a nice peaceful meal, not the case here anymore !!! Such a shame, as it is busy enough without needing folk to bring rugrats along too.

FOOD - 5 *, STAFF SERVICE - 5*, ATMOSPHERE - 5*, PRICE - WORTH EVERY PENNY!
We have eaten here on more than one occasion and the one word to describe our experience - EXHILARATING!!
The staff are so friendly and cannot do enough for you, on their toes all the time and always smiling and show to like their jobs and get on with the punters too. Out of the way a bit and if you don't know where it is, you would find it hard to get there.
YOUR A FOOL IF YOU DON'T GIVE IT A GO. YOU WILL WANT TO GO BACK :D
Having read the previous reviews we decided to sample the food and hospitality at The Wheatsheaf Inn.
We were definitely not disappointed.
The food and staff were second to none and we would recommend this hostelry as a must visit venue.
Great value, great food and great service.
Visited the wheatsheaf on 23/12/11 really looked forward to it arrived 6.30 four of us sat down at the table, the starters were really good. looked forward to the mains 3 ordered the calves liver which was superb, I ordered the duck when it arrived I ate the first mouthful went to cut in again and it was raw and very bloody asked if they could re-cook it arrived back fully micro-waved could not cut into it like rubber the waitress said they served it rare the fat was slimy went on to the desserts 3 sticky toffee puddings superb mine the belgium choc brownie with rum and raisin ice-cream, the ice-cream was melting fast, the brownie was burnt solid could not get the spoon in like i said solid, the waiter came over and took it away and get me another one it arrived it was sticky toffee without the sauce it had dates in it not a brownie. No apoligies. People either side of me ordered duck a bit wary because of my complaint but theirs arrived 4 in total theirs were perfect fell off the leg. Was the chef practising on mine. I will never go back it appears its pot luck some have a good meal some bad its like a lottery so if your lucks in your on to a winner like i said won't be going back

One word sums this place up; "wow"
Everything you could want from a pub. We visited during a recent holiday and can't disagree more with the comments of Andrew in Cleck. The atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming and the food was simply fantastic, so much so we ate there both nights of our stay in the area. Really well worth a visit, please don't be put off by its slightly off the beaten track location!
we have been to the wheatsheaf several times and always the food is excellent. The service is good and the waiting times not too long. I would recommend this pub to everybody
