The area

The Wheel Inn is located in the heart of Oadby, it is a friendly community pub. Oadby, a small market town near Leicester, buzzes with life thanks to its diverse population.  There are around 4,900 adults within a 10 min walk time, with the majority of the footfall in the age 35 – 54 brackets. There are two main competitors within the community segment and the Wheel Inn is one of 6 pubs within a 10 – 20 mins walk time.

The Wheel Inn provides a cozy escape from the daily grind, offering an honest and unpretentious atmosphere. And if you step outside, you’ll find a unique courtyard—a sunny oasis where customers can enjoy sports on the outside screen.

The Wheel Inn is more than just a pub—it’s where friendships flourish and memories are made.
