Property Details

A very well-maintained and extremely attractive public house that is well located within a sought-after village close to Buckingham.

This quintessential village pub offers a tremendous amount of traditional charm with two cosy bar rooms, both with stone inglenook fireplaces, a light and airy dining room and a bar with a serving hatch to the large enclosed garden. There is a modern commercial kitchen, ladies' and gents' toilets and a dry cellar. At the rear, with an independent entrance, is domestic accommodation with a kitchen and a bathroom, and on the first floor is a splendid master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, two other good-size rooms and a toilet.

The current owners have continually invested in improving and maintaining the building, with the most significant works being an entirely new thatched roof; the rear section replaced in 2023 and the front section in 2024. Also in 2022, the sizeable car park to the side was re-surfaced and a top dressing of gravel applied. In 2016, a new floor was laid in the commercial kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and a new regulation gas supply fitted, plus an approved fire protection system for the whole building has also been installed.

The Wheatsheaf is the only pub within this sought-after village on the edge of the thriving market town of Buckingham. It is very well located, just off of the main through-road in Main Street, a narrow picturesque road without fast moving passing traffic. At present the pub trades in wet sales only, it does not sell food. Consequently there is significant potential to significantly increase takings, furthermore, the village is set to grow with an application for a new housing development of 163 houses, which is awaiting decision, less than 200 metres away, offering the potential to improve the already busy clientele. Planning reference: 23/02826/AD, application received: Monday 18 September 2023.

The property is a free house, it is Grade II listed, and in 2016 planning consent and listed buildings consent were approved to remove an existing conservatory to replace it with a single storey rear and side extension - Planning reference: 15/04283/APP, decision date: Friday 3 June 2016 (now expired).
