The Plough & the Stars

Today at the Plough

When we opened The Plough & the Stars 23 years ago, we wanted a place where our guests felt comfortable, safe and had a good time. A big part of our success is our great staff. Our only priority at this moment is the health and safety of our guests, Plough staff and local community.


So it is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the Plough & the Stars until further notice.


While we won’t be celebrating together, we wish all of you a happy St Patrick’s day. Please stay safe and healthy through the difficult times ahead.
