The Wheatsheaf sits in the heart of the South Downs National Park in the affluent town of Midhurst. The town has regularly featured as one of the Sunday Times’ ‘best places to live in the UK’, and has a population of some 5,000 residents with a large proportion of senior citizens and families. Despite a relatively small number of residents, the town bustles with life throughout the year as the high street is home to many small shops, cafes and schools, which provide a substantial guest base.
As well as the beautiful surroundings of the South Downs National Park, Midhurst is also home to the Cowdray Park ruins which date back to the 12th Century, and is within easy distance of the historic towns of Chichester, Arundel and Petworth. The pub is ideally situated on the High Street and benefits from a wide range of guests, from shoppers and tourists during the day to a more vibrant evening trade, with sports and entertainment.
