Walking into The Plough is like walking into a house that’s been converted into a pub. As you walk into the pub you are greeted with a stairwell with a bar wedged between the two rooms on either side. As there aren’t any stools at the bar, part of the stairwell is used as seating by the locals.
The two small but cosy rooms haven’t been decorated for some time and both have cushioned pews, simple wooden chairs and small fireplace or woodburner. The main difference between the two is one has a wooden floor, the other a well worn carpet. The room to the right of the bar has a doorway that leads to a small beer garden and the outside toilets.
The pub has a very welcoming feel from both the staff and the locals and due to the diminutive size of the rooms you will most likely be sharing a table with someone when the pub is busy.
The Plough serves an excellent selection of ales with up to 5 or 6 available at any one time. Many of the ales are from nearby breweries, many of which you may never have heard of. Prices are reasonable with most costing less than £3 a pint.
As well as ale there are a few ciders available and the lagers are from Bernard, Lech and Kingfisher. The absence of the usual suspects and the good selection of ales means that the majority of people who visit the pub are there for quality drinks.
