Thwaites will be completing a full refurbishment of the property. With 112 covers inside and an additional 87 covers outside, the Plough will be a premium destination food business. 

Located in the affluent village of Woodplumpton, 5 miles outside of Preston and dating back to the 16th Century, the Plough is an attractive building which boasts character throughout. Internally there are two bars, a snug area, a large dining area leading onto the conservatory and a separate room which can be used for private events. Open fires create a cosy and welcoming environment, perfect for dining and socialising. Benefiting from a very large kitchen and storage area, the pub has a great reputation for providing fresh, local, homecooked food. Externally there is a good sized car park and a large beer garden which is extremely popular during the warmer months. The living accommodation consists of 2 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, office, bathroom, shower room, storage area and a lounge with kitchenette.


The pub has a good local trade from those within the village. There are many visitors attracted to the area which sits between the Forest of Bowland and the Lancashire coast. Due to its reputation for fresh, locally sourced food, it attracts customers from the local towns, villages and further afield. Throughout the year the pub holds events such as cabaret nights and an extremely popular firework display. Footfall is increased within the area during local events such as the Scarecrow Festival. Many people use the pub for meetings such as the golf society and car clubs. During the summer months the pub is popular with cyclists and walkers. Current opening hours are Monday – Friday 12pm-3pm and 5.30pm- 11pm, Saturday and Sunday 12pm-12am.
