About Us

The Plough boasts a fabulous and well kept one acre garden which has a stream running alongside, plenty of outdoor seating and a unique addition of a Boules pitch to the rear.

In January 2017 Paul & Emma Gibbon took on The Plough Inn. It has since had a sensitive refurbishment which consisted of an entire re decoration of the interior, a bar & kitchen re-fit, refurbishment of toilets and garden works which have included the addition of a small wooden play area for children.

Traditional Cider and cask Ales are still a big focus at The Plough, which won CAMRAs cider pub of the year in both 2014 & 2015. The real ales are still served from a small hatch, straight from the casks which are racked at the back of the bar. The Plough holds two festivals a year, one for cider & one for real ale, both of which are extremely popular and have the addition of live music.

There is a 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 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.
