The Plough Inn
...a traditional village Inn

History of The Plough Inn


The Plough Inn was originally a coaching inn in the 16th Century  and records show that in the 1700s there were two public houses in the village - The Plough is the only one that still remains today.


The Plough itself is a building that has undergone much change throughout the years. The oldest part, now the main public bar, was constructed of boulders and soil and is apparently one of the only remaining examples of Wattle and Daub buildings in the Holderness area.


There is also a phase of building that was added in the Victorian era which includes the lounge bar and much of the private accommodation upstairs has been converted from storage and hay lofts from this era. This is the area to the right of the door as you look at The Plough.



Modern extensions and improvements form what is now the games room area, the Bed and Breakfast accommodation and the kitchen.
