Pub overview

The Wheatsheaf is a big wet led business focussing on live sport, pub games, and regular entertainment. You could really drive this business by adding a more community feel, engage with pool and darts teams and add a simple food offer for those who would like to go out and have a nice 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 rear of the pub is set up for pool, darts, TV viewing and comfortable seating. However towards the front of the pub there is a raised area which can be used for entertainment or private groups visiting to dine. The central area is open, airy and has a variety of seating options which is also good for those wanting to dine or meet for drinks. In total there are circa 70 covers that would suit food service. There are toilets at each end of the business. The pub benefits from two patios 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 a beer 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 academy's, Peterborough's University, College and also the central park further down the road. The pub is in a busy area and to maximise sales would be good to introduce weekly events to attract the locals and keep them coming back.

The pub has an open plan trading area incorporating one main bar servery and has approx 70 covers. It has a dedicated sports area which has TV screens and a pool table. There is a small patio area on the car park side of the building which allows for alfresco drinking and eating. There is also a beer 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.
