The Wheatsheaf is a cosy hidden gem that's steeped in history that you can find documented throughout its bar and snug area. If it's a sunny day, it's the perfect spot to sit outside with a cold drink knowing it's only around 30 mins walk away from your overnight accommodation. The Wheatsheaf also does tasty pub food, its a good option to have your dinner here and then walk down past the Aysgarth falls to your accommodation later in the day when the day-tripper crowds have dispersed slightly.

 

Interesting fact Taken from Wheatsheaf's website: "During the Second World War, the Wheatsheaf hosted two internationally acclaimed celebrities from the worlds of literature and film: Alf Wight (more famously known as  It Shouldn’t Happen to a Vet author, James Herriot) spent his honeymoon with Helen his wife in November 1941. Unbelievably, only six weeks later, in January 1942, Greta Garbo stayed following an evening entertaining troops at Catterick Garrison with Henry Hall the band leader."

Opening hours

Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. Pubs may only open on certain days of the week and only for a couple of hours.

Pubs in Yorkshire (especially in small villages) are known to close if they are especially quiet in the afternoons or late in the evening - it's always worth calling ahead and let them know you plan to visit in the afternoon or to simply check they will be open to avoid disappointment on arrival.

COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.

Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
