Give yourself a treat and have the juniper chicken. The menu is changed regularly, so this is a limited edition. Get in while stocks last.

Bar is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5.30pm. A traditional country pub with a warm and welcoming open fire . Food is served from 4pm on a Friday. On Saturday and Sundays food available from 12pm - 7pm, Bar stays open till late. Booking Essential Bookings highly recommended as The Plough has a small dining area and kitchen, and it can be very busy at times. Hours advertised are Food hours, however the Bar and Drinks are available at times outwith these hours. Drop in for a friendly pint!!
