The Wheatsheaf

5 King Edward Way, Edith Weston, LE15 8EZ

About this opportunity

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Edith Weston, the Wheatsheaf is a charming stone pub with lots of character. Popular with the locals, the pub is a perfect place to unwind and catch up over a pint after a long day. Not just a local’s favourite, it’s also a much-loved destination for those who are in search of hearty homemade meals, an impressive selection of hand-picked ales and exquisite wines.

The pub's location is one of its greatest assets. Situated just a ten-minute walk from the tranquil Rutland Water a popular tourist attraction, the pub attracts a diverse range of visitors, including cyclists, walkers, families, and water enthusiasts.

The current business owner, John, has taken excellent care of the pub over the last 20 years and created a thriving business. However, he is now set to retire, which presents a rare opportunity to take over this well-established pub business in a prime location that you can put your own stamp on.

As you step inside, you will be greeted with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The pub boasts a main bar area that is divided by a snug, featuring a log burner at one end and a dining area at the other. The interior is tastefully decorated, with warm lighting adding to the cosy ambience.

The Wheatsheaf also has a lovely outdoor area, perfect for enjoying the fresh air and relaxing with a drink or a meal. The patio area is currently fitted with a large marquee, providing additional space for this busy pub during the winter months. The large grassy garden is perfect for dog walkers and cyclists to rest their weary feet after a long stroll around Rutland Water or for families to enjoy on a sunny day.
