user reviews of the Wheel, Ashbourne

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Having lived in the town for a while now, I can revisit the review below and refine the comments somewhat. It wasn't the type of pub I am used to visiting, but familiarity and repeat visits have improved the experience. Always a warm and friendly greeting from the barstaff, three handpumps always on, two permanent in Bass and Pedigree and a third rotating guest, most recently Jennings Snecklifter and Brains Steaming Wagon. For a smallish pub, several flatscreens dominate the walls and all football coverage is usually on.

For a closer look at the architecture of the building, there is a covered courtyard area accessed via the rear door to the toilets which seems to have had a previous life - there are two fine old leaded windows next to the bar which look out onto this area, suggesting it was an open area once upon a time - a pool room off to the left as you enter would appear to have been built across this space when it was closed off from the old street access.

Pretty rough and ready pub directly next door to town police station, so perhaps less bother than you might expect from appearances and atmosphere. Friendly staff and reasonably well kept real ales, although a nothing out of the ordinary range of 3 choices. Has the feel very much of a working man's club with the emphasis on man as very few women are ever in there and it can get pretty boisterous in every sense of the word.
