A TRADITIONAL VILLAGE PUB
On Wednesday 3rd May we launch our #wheatytakeover nights where we invite local chefs and restaurateurs to take over our kitchen.
The first of our nights will be hosted by the number 1 Chinese restaurant in Epsom and Ewell. The Bamboo Basket which is even rated number 7 of all the 143 Tripadvisor listings is tucked away by the side entrance of Marks and Spencer in the Ashley Centre and have been gaining rave reviews since opening in 2012. Their chefs will be cooking up an Asian 3 course delight in our kitchen. We're raising funds for the Epsom Medical Equipment Fund who purchase much needed equipment for use at Epsom General Hospital. Tickets for this event cost £16 each and are available from Bess Harding on 020 8337 8181 or from behind the bar at the Wheaty.
FUN QUIZ NIGHT & FISH N' CHIP SUPPER
The world famous Wheaty fun quiz returns on Saturday 6th May. Due to the popularity of these events we're limiting numbers to 50 on a 'first come first served' basis.
Tickets are £10 each, which includes the cost of your fish n' chips plus a donation to the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, andare available from behind the bar.
Each year the Wheatsheaf adopts a local worthy cause to become our nominated Charity of the Year. This year we left it up to our patrons to vote and we are dleighted to announce that the winners are the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity.
The charity makes a vital contribution to the work carried out at both hospitals, which are the UK's largest specialist heart and lung centres, supporting projects that are ineligible for funding from the NHS. 2 Wheatsheaf FC lads, Joe and Matt, recently carried out a parachute jump for the charity. Joe Savva nominated the charity as his Dad, who is in his 50's, is currently under the care of the Harefield Hospital.
Joe told the Wheaty Weekly "My Dad hasn't been too well over the past couple of years and is currently on the heart transplant list. He has been in and out of hospital and had a an operation to have a LVAD (mechanical heart) fitted to keep him ticking over until he receives a new heart. The operation was a success and me, my family and friends couldn't thank Harefield Hospital and the staff enough for doing such an amazing job and keeping my Dad alive. Without them he probably wouldn't be here".
The charity will be the recipient of all the fund raising activities the Wheatsheaf carry out with effect from 1st February 2017 and will include our annual fundraiser, Party in the Pub 2017. There is a charity pot by the side of the bar should you wish to make a donation.
Sunday 16th July
We welcome the Ewell Sessions to the best little pub in the village. The Ewell Sessions provide a friendly environment where musicians of all levels can get together to play acoustic traditional music, mostly from the British Isles. The sessions are timed for a 8.00pm start but any budding musicians are invited to get there at 7.30pm for some basic warm up tunes.
Tuesday 18th July at 9pm
The Rusty Rovers - Since they begun their monthly residency at the Wheaty last August the guys popularity have increased to an extent that there's only standing room during their 2 sets of sing-a-long folk and Irish music.
Entry to all Wheaty music events are free but occasionally there'll be a 'bar on the jar' to enable patrons to show their appreciation to those performing.
PARTY IN THE PUB 2017
We're sorry to say that our 'world famous' Party in the Pub has been postponed.
We'll let you know the revised dates real soon........
