Looks like it is still closed. No sign of life on a Friday evening.

Things have improved recently (new landlord also I believe). There were now three ales on instead of just Bass before. I opted for the Two Brewers which was very well kept. It is also much busier now than before. I guess you have to put a lot of work in if you want to compete with the Dead Poets, just yards down the road, and judging by the number of customers, they are doing just that.

When I went in, there was only one ale on (Bass) despite there being several hand pumps. The barman was very welcoming and friendly though. Don't forget to visit the Dead Poet's a few yards down the road also.

Very disappointing to say the least in the light of previous reviews. OK, the Wheel does offer five different real ales, but they are all mainstream brands, (Directors, 6X, Pedigree, Abbot and Deuchars IPA). I opted for a pint of 6X, which although drinkable, was definitely in less than tip-top condition. It wasnt cheap either; my pint and a glass of white wine for the wife came to 7.00.

Foodwise, although there were chalkboards advertising food, and a full menu on display outside, when we enquired about food we were informed, quite brusquely, that the chef was away and only items on the short menu (basically a few snacks) were available. With that, and the fact that the place also smelt damp, we decided to vote with our feet ...
