Dan and Tia, new owners of The Wheatsheaf Wilton, are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the recently renovated pub, restaurant and B&B on the A36.
The ambitious couple took over the premises in September last year and have completed renovations throughout the premises on the outskirts of Wilton.
The friendly free house local hostelry, built in the 1800s, has a bar and restaurant in a warm character setting, and an impressive riverside garden courtyard.
“The place needed a total re-vamp, everything renewed and refreshed,” Tia told Valley News. The B&B has four newly-decorated en-suite rooms, three doubles and a family room.
“We have been building up the B&B side of the business; it has been fairly steady and we are gaining good reviews,” Dan added.
The impressive newly-renovated bar and dining area seats around 28 people with extra room in the re- designed garden area.
“The garden has huge potential, especially in the summer. We have 11 tables and outside seating. The locals have been very supportive and we would like to look after them – as they have us. We want to build a customer base for people to come and feel comfortable here,” Dan said.
Fresh pizzas and a small menu are planned to be launched soon. Food will be served 12noon to 2.30pm and 6pm to 9pm.
“We have been focusing on the B&B and decorating but we are looking at launching a food menu in the near future,” Tia added.
Dan and Tia are planning on remaining at The Wheatsheaf for at least the foreseeable future, hoping to build up a local following.
“We are working to get involved with the local community,” Dan added.
