The Wheatpieces opened on 15th December 1998, with an official opening ceremony given by the Mayor of Tewkesbury, Councillor R.C. Selby at midday Saturday 19th December. £1.1 million was spent on its construction. It was the first tied house of Morland of Abingdon to be established in Gloucestershire for almost one hundred years. (See the Three Horseshoes Inn at Downington, Lechlade). Ironically, soon after the Wheatpieces pub opened Morlands Brewery was taken over by Greene King.
