Traditional Village Pub and Steakhouse

After being closed as a Pub for over 5 years the Wheatsheaf opened its doors again on 1st May 2009. Local business man Bob Skupham and his wife Irene have reinstated and established the Wheatsheaf as a ‘must visit’ place when in the area. Irene’s home cooking with Bobs passion for meat have made The Wheatsheaf Steakhouse dining room the No 1 Pub in the Glossop area for quality food.

The close working relationship with Mettricks butchers is a continuation of a friendship and trust established between Bobs father ‘Walter’ and John and Steven Mettricks Grandfather ‘Jim’, that started in 1958 when the Skupham family came to Glossop . Walter took over a long established business on Glossop High Street ‘Westons Pork Butchers’ that is now the site of J.W.Mettricks Glossop

The Wheatsheaf is first mentioned as a pub in 1860 and was called the New Inn.

It survived being closed when it was referred to Compensation in 1907 by an appeal made by Doctor Eastham.
