Since rumours emerged that supermarket giant Tesco is looking to take over the Wheatsheaf pub in Tooting Bec, local MP Sadiq Khan has taken action to stop the pub being forced to close down.
Sadiq is working with the company that runs the Wheatsheaf pub and local residents to stop another multinational supermarket taking over a much loved local pub. He has taken the fight right to the top; of Tescos, the Government and the Council.
The Wheatsheaf has been a Tooting landmark for over a century and since the Gregarious group took over in 2010, it has become one of the busiest pubs in Tooting, and one of the most friendly. It is now at the heart of the community in Tooting Bec, and is much loved by local residents and families, who have been up in arms since they heard the rumours that their favourite local faces a supermarket takeover.
