In the quaint village of Diseworth, handily located just minutes from East Midlands Airport, sits the historic Plough Inn, which dates back to the 16th century – although some parts of the building are from the 13th century. Owners Nicola and Scott make you feel welcome as soon as you step inside. Knick-knacks, open fires and original walls create an old-fashioned feel. Expect to find traditional pub food on the menu, including breaded mushrooms, the popular homemade chilli with rice and generous portions of indulgent sticky toffee pudding and treacle sponge to round things off. Lighter bites such as sandwiches, burgers and jacket potatoes are available to order too. A selection of cask ales, lager, cider and wine is available to complement dishes. The patio area and garden catch the sun and provide yet more reasons to call in at this charming inn.
