The Wheatsheaf is at the heart of the beautiful flint downland village of Willingdon. the first of a chain of such villages stretching the length of the south downs. Originally two flint cottages, the pub has over the centuries been modified and extended to give us the old English pub, full of charm and character that is enjoyed by so many today.
The pub is well known for its excellent food, with a strong itallian leaning it is prepared in house under the auspices of of head chef Luca. All produce is locally sourced, even to the extent that our very own village growers group collectively provide superb fresh produce grown to organic principles in their own gardens and allotments. This produce, plus cut flowers, hanging baskets and other gardening services, are bought under a barter scheme using the pubs very own currency - the 'Wheat'.
We regularly host live music events, don't miss the open mic night every Wednesday and look out for our Saturday night music and keep an eye on our diary where you''ll find many speciality food evenings and entertaining events like Morris Dancing for May Day, Barrel Rolling Competition, Meat Raffle, Food Taster Days and other festivites.
We have some great draught beers including Betty Stogs, Harvey's best and local brew - Legless Rambler. We also have a selection of fine single malts and a great wine list.
