The Plough is available for hire whether it's a small meeting or birthday celebration for up to 12 in the private dining room, or a wedding reception of 100+ in a marquee in our beautiful garden area.

Having an on-site, professional events and catering team available at every stage ensures all requirements are fulfilled and all events are an experience to remember. Private hire from 9am till 4pm, Monday-Friday, allow corporate DDR rates to be offered and include screens, breakfast, lunch and refreshments.

Funeral Party Review:


I was very pleased with the quality of food and service for this sad occasion. The landlord Simon and landlady Samantha went out of their way to help in whatever requests I made. I would recommend the Plough to anyone wanting to have any type of family party or gathering to go there. I have been there on other occasions with family and also with a party of residents from the Care Home my husband was in and all of these visits have been a pleasure.
