Location and contact

The Wheel Inn is a family run fresh, local, food establishment. After being closed for over a year Jack has worked very hard to bring the pub back to its former glory. We serve freshly cooked traditional pub food with a restaurant twist. We also have an impressive drinks offering with local ales including Harvey's and Doombar.

This is not true and very unfair, one member of staff came to the pub and the truth is that the Blackhorse in pluckley had a stock shortage of £3,600 and £3,000 on tills as false tabs. So the staff are responsible for these losses....More

I'm still so much in shock at the cost of the coffee here that I can't review the food, ambience or location. I've never paid so much for a pub coffee before!
