A pub in the heart of a village for centuries has re-opened its doors after a major refurbishment.

The Wheatsheaf Inn, in Little Common, is now ready to enter a new chapter in its history.

More than 100 people arrived to see the pub’s new look last Thursday.

“Customers can relax in our traditional bar with its open fires, dine in the restaurant and during summer time enjoy our large garden with a children’s play area” said licensee Lynn Adair.

“For those that like some action with their drinks, there is a full-size pool table and darts area complete with a wide screen TV.

“And there is plenty of home entertainment coming up including live music and quizzes.”

With a new menu, new opening hours and new offers for both locals and tourists, it is hoped the pub will provide a relaxing environment for food, drinks and some entertainment.

Lynn spared no expense in upgrading the inn’s premise and transformed it in the few short months it was closed.

The re-opening also created dozens of job opportunities.

“It’s been hard work” said Lynn, “and I must thank Adam Huntly, form local firm, Total Project Management who completed the whole project – they were brilliant.

“And I now have a great team of bar and restaurant staff with me to welcome both new and old customers.”

All food is home-cooked and served every day, including three-course meals to snacks and platters, as well as Sunday roasts.

There is also a wide variety of cask ales, beers, wines and spirits as well as freshly brewed teas, coffees and hot chocolate available from 10am Monday to Saturday and 11am on Sunday.
