Friendly locals, decent and reasonably priced beer in a lovely historic pub interior. The pint of Barnsley Bitter is an institution. Welcoming to all. You can usually find a seat and Nick the Landlord is always a smiling face.

An absolute gem! The Little Plough is what every local should be. Warm welcome, good beer, great characters. A step back in time, with slower pace and genuine people. The pub is in Camra's Guide to Historic Pub Interiors, and hasn't changed much since the...More
