What they say:
The Wheatsheaf, one of Borough Market’s most iconic pubs, has just reopened after a three-year closure. Originally built in 1772, the early Victorian pub has been given a complete overhaul both inside and out by owner Young & Co's Brewery. The new features include: a campervan kitchen outside on the new heated terrace, the special vintage Wheatsheaf bicycle that houses cosy blankets, a screen showing a live feed from London Bridge Station and the mix and match food ordering system. The Wheatsheaf offers a wide selection of craft beers, ales, ciders and wines. The range on tap includes some of the capital’s finest, such as Meantime Pale Ale and Camden Hells Lager, Young’s own award-winning cask ales, Double Chocolate Stout, Stoney’s Gold and two guest ales which will change regularly.
An interesting selection of side dishes such as macaroni cheese, golden beetroot slaw and spiced haricot baked beans are also available. Meals are served in retro enamel tins together with a range of homemade sauces and classic condiments, and a bar menu including pork and sage sausage rolls, hen’s legs and husks of corn completes the food offering.
The interior has been designed by Jamie Derry from LAP Design and offers an eclectic mix of colours, materials and textures. The more traditional features such as the wooden panelling and fireplace are cleverly offset with more contemporary touches such as the cow hides which give an appealing home from home feel to the Wheatsheaf.
