Welcome to The Wheatsheaf

The Wheatsheaf is an historic hostelry in the heart of Oakham, Rutland’s County Town.

You’ll find us right in the beautiful conservation area on Northgate. This is the original High Street of the town dating back to the 1600s. We’re close to the Parish Church of All Saints, the traditional Market Place and historic Castle which dates back to Norman times.

Choose from three charming rooms in The Wheatsheaf, each with a different, characteristic style. The convivial bar has two real fires and cosy corners where you can meet with friends.  The lounge offers relaxed style where you can dine and chat. The conservatory is a quiet retreat which opens onto the charming garden.

Dine from our ever-changing menu of tasty traditional home-cooked food. Locally sourced ingredients are used wherever possible to offer you fresh, seasonal dishes. Look out for our specials board for the very latest choices from our chef.

Play traditional pub games indoors, petanque in our purpose-built pitch, or take part in a pub quiz. We have an ever-changing programme of events, often raising funds for charities nominated by our customers.

Enjoy The Wheatsheaf’s award winning sheltered walled garden. We like to think this is the best in Oakham. 

We hope to see you soon.
