Went to the Wheatsheaf for sunday lunch, we ordered the sharing lamb roast which took a while to arrive (55 mins). It would have been nice to be informed that it was going to take a while when we placed the order, but it was amazing and totally worth the wait.

Our food was really nice and the service was excellent. A bit pricy but the quality of our food made it worth it. We were sat by a window where it was cold but the overall ambiance and feel of the dining room is lovely.

Really enjoyed our lunch here - second time we've been as a large group with kids & we were very well looked after by Chris & the team. Food was very good - love the halloumi sticks!

Booked a table for 7.30pm for two people. The restaurant was relatively full but still a few empty tables and there was a private party upstairs. Struggled to get anyone to take our order. Eventually went over to ask someone and was told it would be a 30 min wait for food. We said that was ok, and asked if someone could take our order. No-one came so we asked again, and were told it would be a 45 min wait for food, and that we couldn't even place an order for 15 mins. At which point we decided to leave. There were a lot of annoyed diners in the dining room, only two waiting staff to deal with them all and very poor communication. It was the last Wednesday before Christmas - of course the pub was going to be busy. Why accept bookings if the kitchen and staff cannot cope with a full dining room as well as a private party upstairs. Really disappointed, not very good service and no food. Would not recommend.

In a party of 6 with only two vegetarians, everyone opted for one of the vegetarian meals and everyone was absolutely delighted with the taste and presentation of the food they were served.

Good for a beer but food ordinary, cheap ingredients sold as gastro-pub food. A lot of breaded, deep fried stuff. Cheap ham on pizza, although base was good. Wait staff were friendly and efficient. Recommend for evening beer but suggest eating elsewhere.

The food was relatively good, but the service and poor organisation really spoilt our experience. We arrived having booked a table but were not seated for 15 minutes, and then not given any service for a further 20 minutes, by which time there were only 2 roast options on the menu left. However we were not told this until our orders were taken and we had chosen something that had run out. By the time we had then been given a second chance to order there was only one roast option (out of 6) left on the menu. Exactly the same situation with desert, but nobody told us until we tried to order something that had sold out. This was really disappointing, and the brownie sundae was essentially just a glass of ice cream with 3 tiny squares of brownie and chocolate sauce which was poor quality. We appreciate fresh food on the menu may run out, but not to be communicated to was frustrating and the slow service meant there was less available to us than if we had been promptly served.

We had Sunday lunch and thought the service was exceptional and very friendly. The food is good but on reflection it is very expensive. Admittedly we had quite a lot of wine but compared to other places we thought that £95 was a lot of money for a Sunday lunch.

Went last Sunday. Outr group had 2 nut roasts and the chicken. All were delicious and large portions. White Rioja was lovely - as was the creme brûlée. I had my baby son with us and the staff were just lovely with him as well as us - attentive service, friendly and lots of face pulling for the boy! Would definitely go back.

A very good Sunday lunch. Two of our party were vegan and we were catered for very well. The quinoa salad was delicious as a starter, the nut roast main was excellent, and the wines were very good. The staff were friendly and very efficient. This is a very well run pub, lovely decor and good atmosphere, we will definitely be returning.

Came here with family and friends to have late lunch/early dinner. Fantastic choice of meals which catered for everyone in our group. The portion sizes were huge and really good pub grub. The staff were excellent and were happy to deal with any queries on the food/drink they served. Think this will become my favourite local pub!!!

This is a busy local pub with a lovely dining room. The menu is varied with some interesting specials. I met a friend for dinner on a Friday evening after work and enjoyed a tasty meal accompanied by delicious wine - the wine list offers lots of choice. I've eaten here several times and the food is always good and the service is friendly.

Three of us had roast norfolk chicken with bread sauce, with a pint each. Plus two puddings between us - and it all came to about £75. Bit steep! Bread sauce was as runny as milk and the clotted cream with the treacle tart was no good at all. Chicken and roast potatoes were OK.

Not a disaster but I would only recommend to friends with a few caveats.

The restaurant were great accommodating the changing numbers and the manager very good at talking me through the wine list. I was a bit disappointed that there was only one portion of an item on the menu that I wanted - already chosen by someone else, so I chose lamb instead. I was impressed that they asked me how I would like it cooked (medium rare) but it came crispy! I still ate it.. I thought the wine rather expensive but it was very nice and the staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was fun (mid-week evening) but would have been too noisy in the main bar area - good that it was quieter in the dining room. We were a large party - a little gesture towards the birthday might have been a nice gesture....?

With the most recent reno the Wheatsheaf Tooting Bec has moved to a new level. The food is excellent and represents good value. However, there are two disappointing features of the new dining room with open kitchen. One is the loss of a ground floor function room for community events and the second is the continual stream of smokers from the bar traipsing through the dining room to the smoking patio.

great pub grub as in super burgers, but also some unexpected extras - the dressed crab was great as was the wild mushroom and courgette dish with quinoa. Nice buzzy atmosphere in the dining room - especially when the garden is open.

Since the Wheatsheaf has reopened a few months ago after a refurb, I have already eaten here four times with various groups of friends or family. Each time it has been a great experience. A great menu, so many things I would like to choose. Quality of food is brilliant, especially for the price. Can't wait to go again.

This was my first visit to the Wheatsheaf since the renovation and while I still don't love the style and the feel of the pub section in the front I loved the dining room. It looks really stylish now and I'm a big fan of the open kitchen. The food was fantastic as well - amongst the group of us we had the crab and the pork rillettes to start and then the tortellini, burger, steak and fish and chips afterwards. Everyone was really impressed with the food and had no negative comments, other than being too full for dessert. Will definitely be coming back.
