The Wheatsheaf, Chilton Foliat
Designed with a future pub in mind, filled with flavour, music, art, independence, sustainability, local business, community focus and evolving passion.
They do upmarket peasant food – this means it is unpretentious, passionate, exciting, affordable and loads of flavour. They pride themselves on where they get their produce from… the majority of ingredients are within 15 miles and most are organic or wild.
A lot of their dishes can be vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
Their wood fired pizzas are becoming renowned for the being “the best.” This is because they use our Florentine Terracotta Oven to cook the pizzas. Local organic flour is made into dough daily which is proved for at least 24 hours. All the toppings are the best quality and most are organic or local.
They stock only organic wine, homemade liqueurs, a hand selected bespoke spirit list, specialist malt whiskies, craft & organic lager, local and organic Ale, Hungerford Park cider and apple juice, local real cider, organic Fairtrade Cola, Luscombe Organic softs… we are proud to have been awarded a
Casque Mark pub certificate as well.
They work with the chef, Ollie’s parents who have created a truly beautiful farm with their own rare breed pigs fed organically, free range sheep and chickens grazing on protein rich grass, cider, apple juice, wild honey and a wonderful organic vegetable garden which is 12 years certified.
They grow their own herbs and fruit in their beautiful garden at the pub. Roses can be turned into rose jam, sage into a fresh pasta, chives into an emulsion with fish, pears into a tarte tatin with clotted cream. It couldn’t be fresher than that.
“Most Sustainable Business” of the Year
“We are super proud to have been awarded the “Most Sustainable Business” of the year from the SRA. Thank you to all our amazing suppliers, staff and customers!”
We have also been awarded our 3 star certificate by the Soil Association for sourcing organic produce on our menu. Unfortunately they can’t include all the organic produce we use, so in actual fact we use closer to 80% organic food and drink at the pub. You can enjoy our pub whilst saving the bees by being organic!
