The Wheatsheaf at Stow-Cum-Quy, Cambridge. Traditional English Pub & Restaurant

A little bit about us

We are located in the small picturesque rural village of Stow-Cum-Quy midway between Cambridge and New market on the B1102. We are proud to be a traditional pub in every sense of the word. Dating back to 1886, The Wheatsheaf is a no nonsense, family run pub and restaurant where home-cooked food and quality service are always on the menu.

Whether you chose to savour a local ale at the bar or dine in one of our many cosy snugs or in the bright and airy conservatory overlooking the beer garden, you are invited to indulge in honest heart warming food prepared with passion and integrity by experienced publican Toni.


Traditional British Food

Our extensive menu includes the traditional fare you would expect of a village pub, Cumberland sausages and mash, pan-fried rib eye steak and fresh cod in a beer batter with chips and peas. however, if you are looking to venture off the well beaten track, our blackboard specials are sure to whet your appetite. We like to experiment with seasonal and local produce but appreciate that sometimes you just want to enjoy the familiar (and that's ok with us too).

We are proud to offer a wide choice of vegetarian food and as we are a family run pub, we aren't too constrained by our menu and we do our very best to cater for all - if it's in the fridge we'll happily prepare it within reason (a friendly nod before your arrival would be gratefully received and keep the chef sane during a busy session). For larger groups or special occasions we'll happily prepare a bespoke menu for you, just give us a call or drop in and see us.

The kitchen is open

It's fair to assume that when the oven's fired up and ready to go, the lights will be on and we are open. We aren't as fastidious about our closing time as we are about opening, so if you are passing and you're not sure if we're still serving then just pop in and check.

Booking is advisable, the popularity of our Sunday roast can never be underestimated.
