About the Pub

The Plough has an impressive, historic exterior of sandstone and Cheshire brick. Deep, narrow yet characterful interior with bar on the left backed by striking aquamarine tilework. Bare-boarded floor, some of which has an interesting square pattern extending towards the rear. At the front are some isolated tables alongside which are some high ones for larger groups. The further in you go the more intimate the seating becomes; these are set out in semi-circle alcove fashion with comfy leather seating; diners are encouraged to use the rear tabled areas. Here, there is a large, family dining table in one bay, while a higher bay, styled the Observatory, houses a number of smaller tables. Decor varies from bare brick, to mirrors, murals, and plough-based artworks and ephemera displayed on a reclaimed timber background. To the rear is a covered courtyard and a garden for warmer days. Family-friendly yet retaining a good deal of pubiness, it is run by an enthusiastic landlord and team meaning this fine pub is at the heart of the local community.

Historic Interest

The present pub was rebuilt in 1886, replacing an earlier Plough. Over the door is a superb representation in sandstone of a ploughing scene. Until the 1960s it was a Hardy’s Crown brewery house, sold to Bass in 1962; then transferred to the Tetley estate.
