Whisbech St Mary, Cambridgeshire

Review of Whisbech St Mary by Susan Wilsher on October 12th, 2008
We have just spent a perfect Autumns afternoon at the The Wheel Inn. Wisbech St Mary. A true British Coaching Inn dating from the 1700's You are immediately greeted with such a warm welcome and it is so refeshing to see such a historical building retaining it character and charm. I was with my Mother( 74) and daughter (9) we were quite releived to find such nice hospitality and a warm welcome, especially with so many classic old country pubs being turned into 'Trendy wine bars'. We had booked a table for Sunday lunch. It was nothing short of amazing. We were astounded and laughed when we saw the size of the plate 'chef' was carving slices of prime meat onto. Personaly I had a slice of everything and we understood immediately why the need for such large plates! 6 different veg were on offer all bright in colour and farm fresh. The gravy was hand made..Not Bisto!! I have not enjoyed such a sunday roast in any other pub in our area. We then went into the gardens where my daughter played and we digested our lunch over coffee. We stayed 3 hours just reading the sunday papers while my daughter played safely with new found friends. This afternoon was a rareity with having no real british summer to speak of, we hardly went out for sunday lunch. After such a lovely meal today I know where I will be going rain or shine.
