Fine selection of Cumbrian ales and wines

Great tasting food from local suppliers

Relaxed and comfortable ambiance

Situated in the tranquil, some might say hidden, Vale of Lorton, a warm welcome awaits visitors to the 17th century Wheatsheaf Inn.


Mark and Jackie have been running this award winning pub for over 15 years now. Between them they have over 30 years experience in the food and drinks industry. Which means that you will be assured a fine pint of local Cumbrian Ale and tasty local food, produced to the highest of standards.

The Wheatsheaf Inn has been awarded the top mark of 5 stars from the ‘Score on the doors’ initiative which has been set up by the Cumbria Food Liaison Group for ‘Excellent Food Safety’.

Only a handful public houses have been awarded this top mark within the Allerdale borough.

The Wheatsheaf Inn also employs a number of key staff, most of whom have been here for many years, which is rare thing in the pub and restaurant industry - this goes to show that they are happy and enjoy working here, which in turn assures our customers of the very best of service on every visit.
