After weeks of doubt and uncertainty it has been confirmed that a new tenant has taken over the Wheatsheaf. The Proper Pub Co. are based in Northants. They describe themselves as a fledgling pub company with a couple of venues and great plans for expansion. They already run 3 other pubs in the area, including the Green Dragon at Brigstock and the White Horse at Old. From today they can also add the Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh to their portfolio.
A quick look at the Proper Pub Company’s web site tells you everything you need to know about their ethos. They run regular theme evenings throughout the week with special offers on drinks, etc. if you involve yourself in the theme night. If you like steaks and pies then you’re in for a treat. The company plan to hold special nights for both at least once a week. They also like to use local real ales, ciders and wines wherever possible. The company are putting together a very special wine list for the Wheatsheaf right now. They also have an extensive range of artisan gins and various mixers including Fever Tree tonics and Franklin’s mixers. Only the best!
The pub are absolutely child and dog friendly.
On Saturday night, Naomi Cooper and 2 other local ladies went on a secret mission to The White Horse in Old to sample their food and get a taste of what the Proper Pub Co. will bring to Titchmarsh.
“My burger and thick cut chips were superb and the blood orange sorbet was divine!” said, Naomi. “The décor of the pub was also lovely with lots of twinkly lights which made it welcoming and cosy! I’m so excited that The Wheatsheaf has new owners and will be open soon and in time for Christmas.“
Allison Clair said, “The meat was delicious! I don’t think I’ll ever cook again when The Wheatsheaf reopens!“
Hannah Aston, who recently moved from Titchmarsh to Aldwincle, said, “I want to move back to Titchmarsh now! The pies were delicious!“
Suzy Keeping, General Manager and Events Coordinator of The Proper Pub Co Ltd, who will also be working at The Wheatsheaf when it opens, said, “We are really excited to be taking over The Wheatsheaf. A Manager with loads of experience has been flown in especially from France and we are looking forward to welcoming villagers and people from further afield to the pub very soon.”
So there you have it. The Wheatsheaf will be open again soon – possibly in October. Watch this space and the TT for more details.
