Not in Badshot Lea but in Farnham - the Wheatsheaf is in the centre of the town of Farnham and should be dominant in the area but it isn't - why? Traditionally it has served a young crowd and with the only pool table in the middle of town it is some way off the potential crowd it could attract if it worked harder at becoming more "high brow" - but then the good burghers of Farnham would probably not patronise the pub no matter what you did.
Beer is OK (TEA, Tim Taylor and Harvey's on when we visited) and OK service left us feeling a little under-whelmed and although the decor is alright it is a poor mid-point between traditional and reasonably modern. Food is OK - good pub grub rather than gastro (a blessed relief from some of the rubbish served in other pubs in the town).
Probably being a bit harsh but it's just good not outstanding and that's a shame given that the location should mean that this is the premier pub in town - a bit more oomph would get it higher up our and other customers' ratings.

This has now changed hands and the new licenses are very friendly and the food is wonderful, Sandra has been a chef for 20 years and it shows, they are soon starting up a carvery which I think the town is sorely lacking, I think you should retry and amend your review. And nearly forgot they have dropped the prices from before.
