Sheldan Inn Details

Trading style

The Sheldan is currently a family friendly pub offering a varied and traditional pub style menu, with a lot of the lunch trade coming from the surrounding businesses. The bar offers a selection of beers, ciders, wines and caters for the growing spirit trade with gins and whiskeys. Weekends are busy with tribute acts and live entertainment which are very popular amongst the locals. To protect the local community from noise all windows have double/triple glazing and we have recently installed air conditioning to ensure a comfortable environment during the busy entertainment evenings. The Sheldan has a strong online presence with a fantastic website and a growing number of “followers” on social media.

Trade accommodation

The new look has created distinct areas for diners, drinkers, sports fans and a function room, whilst retaining an open feel and flow throughout the pub. The design of each area has created a relaxed and cosy feel with a range of seating and sofas. A new purpose built trading kitchen is of a good size and able to cope with high volume of food trade with over 50 covers. The new function room with its own bar, is perfect for business meetings of up to 50 and accommodates parties up to a 100. It already holds Jazz Clubs on a lunch time and is used by local councillors for meetings. Although there are no sports teams there is scope to involve community sports teams to build up a mid-week trade.

Private accommodation

The private accommodation is situated on the first floor and consist of three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, separate toilet & lounge all decorated to a high standard.
