A few weeks ago we were alerted to the Wheatsheaf in Leckhampton closing. However we could not confirm what was going to happen to the venue. We have since found out that it will be reopening soon !!!
Robin Carter who owns the Royal Union in Tivoli, has agreed to run the pub for the time being in order to keep it going but will be giving the place a complete spring clean first before this happens.
The Royal has won Cheltenham CAMRA pub of the season recently and has a great selection of real ale. So expect good things from Robin’s relationship with the Wheatsheaf.
Robin wants to keep everyone posted but to let you know that for the time being, there will be no major changes except for the fact he will sell GOOD beer, the place will be CLEAN and will employ excellent, FRIENDLY bar-staff. What happens in the long-term will depend upon the brewery etc.
We will keep you posted with any more developments and a re-opening date.
