If you want to experience some glorious food that just melts in your mouth then you need to get along to The Wheatsheaf pub restaurant at Dry Doddington. Katie and Dan have been busy creating sublime 'taste of' nights to brighten up your winter evenings. If you need some encouragement then here is a recent review from Cosmo:
What a great find! This place is really welcoming and the food is really tasty. I especially liked the Specials Board, filled with local and seasonal produce. When the food arrived, it didn't disappoint - the blade of beef was mouthwatering and perfect for these colder, darker nights. Can't wait to eat there again!
The exquisite courses have been carefully put together by head chef Dan and each course will be accompanied by wines (again carefully chosen by Ann) at Ann et Vin.
Game and pearl barley broth - (Turckheim Reserve Pinot Gris Reserve 2008 Alsace)

I have to say writing about this has got my taste buds watering; I think they deserve a treat! You will need to book for this 'game' evening so make sure you call the pub restaurant as soon as you can.
