Pub overview

A well presented family friendly cavery & grill, which was completely refurbished in 2019

The Wheatsheaf is a large business focussing on live sport, pub games, and regular entertainment. With the added attraction of a family friendly carvery and grill menu you could really drive this business forward by adding more of a community feel, engaging with pool and darts teams and catering for those who would like to go out and have a quality home cooked meal in a warm and comfortable environment.

This is a large open plan site which has dedicated zones to suit different occasions. The pub benefits from an entrance from the street and the car park both leading directly to the main central L-shaped bar servery. The front of the pub towards the main road is set up for pool, darts, TV viewing and comfortable seating. Towards the rear of the pub there is dedicated seating for food service and family gatherings with a carvery counter. The central area is open, airy and has a variety of seating options which is also good for those wanting to meet for drinks. In total there are circa seventy covers that would suit food service. There are toilets at each end of the business and the pub benefits from two patio areas, one near the car park which allows for alfresco drinking and eating, the other on the opposite side of the building which also has an enclosed family garden attached to it.

The pub is situated on one of the main roads leading into Peterborough city centre. It has regular passing trade as it is on Eastfield Road which can be accessed by the dual carriageway. In surrounding areas the pub has various academies, Peterborough's University, College and also the central park further down the road. The pub is in a busy area and to maximise sales it would be beneficial to introduce weekly events to attract the locals and to keep them coming back.

The pub has an open plan trading area incorporating one main bar servery and has approx seventy covers. It has a dedicated sports area which has TV screens and pool tables. There is a small patio area on the car park side of the building which allows for alfresco drinking and eating. There is also an enclosed family garden on the opposite side of the building which has another patio area and a large grassed area for children to play. The trade kitchen is large and well equipped just waiting for an enthusiastic operator to give food a concerted effort.
