Wheatsheaf Inn

Manchester, M35 9AT

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Wheatsheaf is located in Failsworth which is a town in Greater Manchester, 3.7 miles northeast of Manchester and 2.9 miles southwest of Oldham. The orbital M60 motorway skirts Failsworth’s eastern boundary creating accessible transport links across the North West along with a Metrolink tram service from Failsworth Metrolink station on the Oldham & Rochdale Line. Situated on the main road through Failsworth, the Wheatsheaf is surrounded by local shops and businesses along with a high density of houses.

Pub Layout

On entering through the front door, you are welcomed into an open plan lounge / bar with the bar servery located in the heart of the pub servicing all areas. This area has comfortable seating and can seat up to forty covers. To the left hand side of the pub there is a games area, complete with pool table and darts okke. Surrounding the bar servery are a number of stools and space for vertical drinking, this is where a lot of the locals tend to gather. There is also a small catering kitchen situated on the right hand side of the pub opposite the bar servery, ideal for a basic food menu. Externally, to the front, there are a number of wooden picnic benches for external drinking in the warmer months. There is also a quaint, enclosed drinking area to the right hand side of the pub with additional seating and benches and a smoking solution with both heat and light.

The Wheatsheaf is a community pub with a strong, loyal following. It does exceptionally well on weekends with live entertainment. There is the potential here to create an avid sports following with not only pool and darts teams, but showing live sporting events as well. There is a catering kitchen which could be utilised to produce a good, basic food offer – especially when sports are on.

The private accommodation is located on the first floor and is in reasonably good order. This consists of four good sized bedrooms (one room can be used as a dining room or a bedroom dependant on individual requirements) lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
