The Plough Inn


The Plough Inn was tastefully refurbished with handmade brickwork and granite slabs, under floor heating adding to the warm, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere in 2005

The bar has been built using hand-made bricks rescued from an old Cumbrian mill race, decorating its front is an old ploughshare, the rural connection continued with a part of the edging to the bar coming from a combine harvester.

The Plough has a well-deserved, excellent reputation for it’s food which is locally sourced, wherever possible. Meals are served between 12 and 2.30pm, Wednesday to Sunday and between 5.30 - 8.30pm Wednesday to Sunday evening.  We are closed Tuesdays.  The Plough opens on a Monday evening from 7pm for a charity fun quiz night which starts at 8.00pm. It is a £1 to enter and teams can have up to 6 players per team. A bottle of wine is raffled on the evening with the proceed going to the winners charity of choice. Free home made chips are given to all that attend on the evening.  To date we have raised almost £18,000 for local charities thanks to all that attend.
