Once upon a time, at the heart of every UK town was a pub. It was a place of celebration and solace. Communication and camaraderie. In recent years that trend has slowly disappeared. At Midhurst’s The Wheatsheaf, the new owners and management team are working to bring it back.
Good food, fine local ales, quality entertainment and a welcoming atmosphere are all back on the menu in this attractive 17th century public house. With open fires and slate flooring, The Wheatsheaf has a traditional, homely feel, which is reinforced by outstanding products and service.
Fine Food & Drink
A refreshed menu packed with quality locally sourced ingredients and a complement of award-winning local ales are two of the main draws for patrons of The Wheatsheaf. While £10 promotional pizza and burger nights blow away the mid-week blues and a loyalty scheme ensures that regulars always get a little bit more for their money.
But it’s not just food and drink that The Wheatsheaf has to offer. The new management team aim to make the pub the centre of Midhurst in more than just geographical terms. With live music, pub quizzes, regular events and big screens available for all the major sporting events from Sky Sports and BBC Sports, The Wheatsheaf is ready to entertain like never before, as it approaches its 400th birthday in 2021.
Managing Director, Rob Barr comments: ‘The Wheatsheaf is an extraordinary pub with an incredible history, and we feel very privileged to have taken ownership. But it’s also quite a responsibility, having such a weight of history on your shoulders. That’s why we’re so pleased to have got General Manager Michelle Bache on board.
‘Together with the rest of their team, Michelle has breathed new life into the Wheatsheaf. They’ve worked really hard to retain the pub’s traditional atmosphere, while delivering thoroughly modern service and standards. And with local suppliers powering the kitchen, and brewers, Hall and Woodhouse supplying us with award-winning ales, we’re confident that The Wheatsheaf will once again play a vital role in Midhurst’s social scene.’
Just five miles from Goodwood Racecourse and two miles from the Cowdray Park Estate and Polo Club, you can find The Wheatsheaf in the centre of Midhurst.
