As part of a family that is passionate about the authentic pub experience, we believe that being part of the local community is key to achieving this.
That’s why we like to support the local community; helping to promote and support local events, fundraising for local charities and building relationships with fellow groups, teams and businesses in the area…

Local Food and Drink
We are dedicated to sourcing from British farmers and producers and using only sustainable ingredients, so we work hard to build great working relationships with our suppliers, from the gin in our perfect G&Ts and the perfect cooked steak on your plate, to the oil in your salad and the ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.
We are also proud members of Surrey Hills, further championing local ingredients and craftsmanship, working together with the county to promote local ingredients and fantastic talent this county has to offer.
We are proud to support Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care and fund raise to help this incredible charity continue to care for patients and their families throughout the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.
Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients and their families across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire. Every day it supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers who are living with a terminal illness, such as cancer, offering medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support. This care is provided at the Hospice in Farnham, the Beacon Centre in Guildford, in patients’ own homes and in the community, and helps manage patients’ pain and improve quality of life for both them and their families.
Seeking care through Phyllis Tuckwell isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life…because every day is precious.
How do we support Phyllis Tuckwell?
As the NHS/Government only covers 20% of Phyllis Tuckwell’s costs, they have to raise over £20,000 a day to be able to offer all of their services, which are given free of charge to patients and their families. Fundraising is therefore hugely important, and there are a number of ways in which we try to help…
Red Mist Ale
Since 2013 we have teamed up with Andwell Brewery in Hook to create our own recipe ale, Red Mist, and we donate to Phyllis Tuckwell 20p from every pint sold here at The Wheatsheaf, so when you take a sip, you’re also doing your bit for charity!
We also host our monthly networking event (more on that in later) in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell and encourage all attendees to donate on arrival before tucking into the complimentary bacon sandwiches and sharing ideas with other local businesses.
The Dash of Colour
Since 2015 we have sponsored the red station at the annual Dash of Colour held by Phyllis Tuckwell. It’s a fun-filled day for runners of all levels, who take on the 5k course at Frimley Lodge Park, running through clouds of coloured powder paint, ensuring participants (both runners and volunteer ‘throwers’) end up as colourful as a rainbow!
Sign up for the 2017 event here
Every year, we take part in a charity challenge to raise money for a couple of local causes. In 2016, we teamed up with the rest of Red Mist Leisure to take part in The Red Mist Ramble, a marathon walk which saw us take on the undulating terrain of the Surrey Hills, from The Queen’s Head in East Clandon, finishing at The Wheatsheaf in Farnham, raising over £3,000 for Phyllis Tuckwell!
In 2017 a team completed the 3 peaks challenge in aid of two other local charities and have raised over £12,000 so far!
