Where the 15th Century Meets Modern Day...


The Plough Inn has been dispensing refreshments to weary travellers since 1498 and continues to do so today in the same way it did all those years ago, with the best of local produce and the warmest of Yorkshire welcomes. 

Monks were known to serve their brews through the small window in the wall in our dining room in the 14 and 15 hundreds and we keep this tradition with us now albeit from the bar!

We serve a fine range of local ales from Black Sheep and Theakstons and have a range of lagers including Birra Moretti, Kronenbourg and Fosters whilst keeping it local with our draught cider from Black Sheep too. We have a well stocked wine cellar from our well renowned supplier House of Townend and a wide range of local and world spirits to suit all tastes and occasions including our very own Yorkshire Puds Sticky Toffee Gin!

Our food offering is 7 days a week and again, we use the finest ingredients sourced locally where possible. Our meat for Sunday roasts, for example, comes from just down the road and is tended to by our butcher, Radford's of Sleights near Whitby. Our game is always local, usually caught by our local shoots and specialists, even our salad leaves only come as far as Thirsk!

We have our lovely dining room in the oldest part of the building, our bar area in the 'newer' (1852) part of the building where well behaved dogs are always welcome, our heated marquee just out the door and our worst kept secret, the 'old kitchen' our beautifully refurbished private dining room for up to 12 guests. 



Whatever the occasion, we are ready to help you enjoy a quick drink, romantic dinner for two all the way to your big birthday celebration and indeed small wedding receptions - get in touch to find out what we can do for you.
