A Bank Holiday treat this weekend – a new local pub, The Wheatsheaf, opened on Friday. Now when I say new, that’s not entirely correct as this pub has been up near the Church for so long it was even featured in the local paper’s memories page this week.
It’s a traditional stone built Derbyshire inn had most recently been trading as a (v nasty) Greek Taverna.
In these days of nearly 30 UK pub closures every week it’s a welcome sight and means there’s now a choice of three pubs for us few hundred villagers.
The interior has been given an overhaul with freshly painted walls, new flooring and smart furnishings as well as feature fireplaces.
They’ll soon be serving a full menu of the steak and grills variety but, for now, they’re offering some pleasingly fresh sandwiches, jackets and the like as bar snacks while they get going.
The landlords Bob and Irene Skupham say trade has exceeded expectations so far so good luck to them for the future!
