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 😊

Thank you for your really lovely review, I'm glad you like what we do and that you'll be back. I'd noticed too that we're ranked # no 1 for nightlife in Falkirk; not going to argue with TripAdvisor! You're right though that there isn't much...More

Since taking over in December, we've really begun to appreciate just what a gem the Wheatsheaf is. The staff have been great from day one and all our customers have been very welcoming. Thanks for your great review and see you again soon.

Great wee place tucked away from the High Street, through a little close. Old world feel about the place with a nice big oak table in the corner. Reasonable range of beers and quite fairly priced. Good service too. No piped music or Tv...so that's...More

Popped in for a drink but took to this very quaint local pub. Good range of beers and enjoyed the history of the place. Has CAMRA recognition for its real ales.
