More Information

This is a fantastic opportunity to give an affluent area the premium food pub it’s crying out for.

Located in the desirable (and highly affluent) village of Ticknall, The Wheel Inn is also close to other many other affluent villages of South Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The area is crying out for a great quality destination food offer. While the village is small, the surrounding areas mean over 200k adults are within a 20-minute drive, giving the Wheel the potential to be a proper drive-to destination. It also sits just next to the entrance of the wonderful National Trust-owned Calke Abbey, which attracts around 300,000 visitors per year. Popular with walkers and tourists, it offers a great opportunity to develop the pub’s daytime offer to attract these visitors.

This is a fabulous village coaching inn downstairs with a more modern dining room/lounge upstairs serving a premium range of drinks alongside a food offering that offers a small but frequently changing menu with the highest quality local ingredients. The local area is lacking a premium pub with a great food offer, which is where we see the opportunity for this site. The two-level operation means that the downstairs can operate as a traditional walker- and dog-friendly ‘locals bar’, while the upstairs lounge caters for those wanting to dine in a more modern, upmarket environment. The drinks range will include cask ales, a great selection of gins and other spirits as well as the opportunity to trade to more premium drinks from the core range of draught products.

The pub will appeal to a wide cross-section of people. Daytime trade will need to focus on those looking for a trip out for lunch, such as older groups looking to meet up with friends or visitors to Calke Abbey and its grounds looking for a coffee and a light lunch. Evening and weekend trade is likely to be village locals of all ages looking for a drink in quality surroundings or the over-30s travelling for high-quality food.
