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.

A traditional country pub with a warm and welcoming open fire .

Food is served from 4pm on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday and Sundays food available from 12pm - 7pm. 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.
