About Us

Paul & Emma took over the Plough Prestbury in January 2017 and have since won various industry accolades including Punch Publicans of the Year 2023 and Punch Pub of the Year at the 2023 Great British Pub Awards. The whole team take great pride in these achievements and endeavor to live up to the high standards set to achieve these awards for years to come.


The Plough is a traditional grade 2 listed, thatched roof pub. It boasts a well kept one acre garden which has a stream running alongside, plenty of outdoor seating and the unique addition of a boules pitch to the rear as well as a small children’s play area. In 2020 the interior space was increased with the addition of a wonderful garden room, this over looks the beautiful patio and pergola area and can seat up to 25 people, ideal for small functions and family gatherings.


Traditional Cider and Cask Ales are still a big focus at The Plough, the Real Ale is served from a small hatch, straight from the casks which are racked at the back of the bar. To compliment this, the interior still boasts the famous tap room, where you’ll find a cosy seat by the open fire during the Winter. In the Summer, The Plough holds it’s now infamous Cider Festival which brings the garden to life for a weekend of live music, dancing and entertainment. 

There is an additional small function room available for hire, seating up to 14 people. It has a TV with a USB point and is ideal for small meetings, coffee mornings, meeting groups and special occasion private dining.

The Plough prides itself on being dog friendly there are plenty of fresh water bowls and even treats behind the bar for your canine companions.

Paul, Emma and the team at The Plough look forward to welcoming you soon.
