We were spending a weekend in Falkirk to explore the town more and came across The Wheatsheaf Inn. What a find, only intended having one drink ended up staying for 3 hours talking to the locals etc.

Cracking wee pub with a good selection of quality ales and a nice ambiance. On a more negative note, the bar staff leave a lot to be desired as they'd rather pop out for a cigarette than serve customers. Don't know if this is a...More

I'm so glad you like our pub, and that you think we're doing a lot right. I'll pass your comments about "cigarette breaks" on to everyone though, as a wee reminder about what's expected from them. Our staff are really hard working and care about...More

Thanks for your great review. Good beer, great music and a sunny beer garden - sounds like a perfect Sunday to me. Sorry if we got your order wrong, we'll get it right next time 🍺

As usual, great beer. The new guys have changed things a wee bit - the morgue ambiance has been ditched and background music has been introduced- and the World Cup too. Marvellous for me 😊
