The Wheel at Branston in Leicestershire – a rustic, family-run pub

Great Food Club ate at The Wheel Inn in Branston, Leicestershire, last weekend. It’s a down-to-earth, rustic, friendly and welcoming village pub. It also serves good food (including excellent pies) and well-kept local ales, although service was a little on the slow side during our visit.

The pie we enjoyed at The Wheel

Landlord and head chef Matt Marsden told us that The Wheel has recently changed its approach and is now completely family run. Matt is head chef, his dad Phil handles the admin, mum Lynne is on flowers & gardening duty, and Tristan (far left) handles front of house.

Well worth a visit! Expect dogs and muddy boots… plus great pies!

The Wheel also runs an offer for Great Food Club members – 10% off the entire bill, Monday to Saturday, lunch and evening. Offer not valid in addition to other offers. Please mention that you are a Great Food Club member when booking on 01476 870376 and show your membership card when paying.
