The Wheatsheaf

Do you have an energetic and engaging personality that will make your pub the extension of you? Are you looking for a pub where you can be front and centre stage, orchestrating a standout guest experience? Love sports and the hustle and bustle of city life? If so, the Wheatsheaf is the pub for you.

We’re planning a small investment at the Wheatsheaf in April with new external and internal decks and contemporary furniture for a new Management Partner to make their mark and capitalise on the investment.

The pub and location

The Wheatsheaf is a homely city centre pub where guests come to watch the big match, catch up with mates or let their hair down ready for a fantastic evening.

Guests love this established sports bar just off the centre drag of Chelmsford City centre with a large trading area. It’s a home-from-home for sports enthusiasts with ten sports screens, three pool tables, a darts area, and several machines. Outside, we have a temporary pavement licence (to the right of the pub), a small seating area to the front and an intimate courtyard at the back. We’re looking for a talented operator who can maximise the abundant opportunities here.

Chelmsford is a blossoming city in Essex, just thirty miles from central London. It’s home to around 184k people.

Ideal publican

The Partnership – Fixed

Ready to run your own business, manage your own team and define your own wage structure? Love working closely with an Operations Manager to build an incredible pub legacy with uncompromising standards and stand out guest experience? Then the Punch Managed Partnership is the perfect option for you.

Alongside tonnes of day to day support and a brilliant framework to grow the business, we provide an uncapped cut of top line turnover to pay yourself and your team in exchange for your Management Company providing the management services at the pub – it’s your structure to own, subject to management company costs including, but not limited to, staff costs, minor repairs and maintenance at the pub, security/door staff and insurance. We understand how important it is for a Management Company to completely own their own team.

In our Partnerships, we love pub obsessed entrepreneurs that help us lead the industry. We love to partner with people that help us create pub legacies that stand the test of time and become the hub of their community. We get that every pub has its own distinct character, so your Operations Manager will work closely with you to understand the true identity of your business, we can then help support you amplifying this, it’s a partnership after all!
