A large and impressive late Victorian red-brick pub. The Wheatsheaf name is in mosaic in the front porch. It underwent a major refurbishment in 2017. The rear parts have been opened out but a visit is still worthwhile for the two front rooms. The right-hand one has an intact three-sided screen creating a vestibule-like entrance with colourful stained glass in the door and two side panels. There are also original fixed seats, bell-pushes and a richly treated fireplace. The left-hand room too has stained glass, fixed seating with bell-pushes but modern screens. Note the grand door hinges with large springs. Good moulded ceilings too.
