11.00 am to 11.00 pm

Customer information

The Wheatsheaf is a traditional English Pub with possibly the finest Greene King IPA, in the area.
The pub has a regular cliental which ranges from all age groups and professions (builders to Doctors) with a smattering of eccentrics.
An occasional Pub magazine (the Wheatsheet) has been published for a couple of years by some of the regular customers and reflects the variety of the cliental. The Wheatsheet has recently been published on the internet

Tony and Barbera O'Boyle came to the Wheatsheaf (February 1998) hot-foot from the Waggon and Horses in Braintree, a pub which they ran for eight years. Prior to  the  Waggon they had the Ship Inn, at March, Cambridgeshire for five years.

The Wheatsheaf is a tied house, part of the family run Gray's group and therefore the beer sold is from Greene King (IPA and Abbot ale) with one guest  draught beer.
Lager from Heineken and Stella Artois, cider from Stowfords and Strongbow together with various bottled beers.
Tea and coffee are always available.
Fresh rolls and sandwiches are available Monday to Fridays at Lunch times.
