The Plough Inn
Set in nine acres of picturesque private land, The Plough Inn is a wonderful place in which to enjoy the delights of the countryside. The garden, which slopes down to meet the banks of the River Derwent, includes both a pleasant courtyard and an attractive beer garden where guests can dine al fresco. In the cooler months, this 16th-century inn, with its log burners and open log fire, is a cosy retreat from the elements. With six attractive boutique bedrooms, you may even decide to make this the destination for your next weekend getaway.
The decor is exemplified as much by its exposed wooden beams as its bright colours and vibrant patterns. Pop in for a pint of local ale or a refreshing glass of wine and peruse the menu – with such scrumptious dishes available, we’d highly recommend staying to dine. You might sample flash-fried whitebait served with pink peppercorn and lemon mayonnaise, perhaps followed by a rack of lamb accompanied by Jersey Royals, glazed baby vegetables and redcurrant and balsamic sauce. For a tasty vegetarian alternative, plump for asparagus, tomato and goat’s cheese risotto with a Parmesan and caraway crisp. This charming establishment is the perfect place for a family meal out, but it’s also an excellent venue for private events. With an in-house wedding planner and extensive gardens, The Plough can cater for anything from an intimate gathering to a large wedding.
