Pub overview

An excellent food led business located just outside Cambridge!

The Wheatsheaf is a long established business located in the village of Stow-cum-Quy. It has enjoyed great success in the past. In 2015 the business was fully refurbished front and back of house. The business is now ready for a strong owner/operator to really get the site on track, and bring it back to being the best place to eat for miles around. This presents an opportunity for a quality food operator to develop this business further. There could be further development opportunities in the future by extending the trading area to accommodate additional covers. There are currently 90 covers.

The trade area is well furnished and in excellent order with a bar, dining and conservatory area accommodating up to 90 covers. There is a small garden area adding more covers during the summer months.

“ Following an extensive refurbishment in March 2015 the Wheatsheaf is in great condition, and has good kerb appeal. It is a fantastic opportunity for an excellent food operator with an eye for quality. There are many opportunities to grow this business further, both with extending the trading times, and developing a quality offering that the market place can engage with. ”
