About The Plough
Chris & Kelly are pleased to be Landlords of the best and only pub in Grimsargh, if you have not visited us recently you are in for a real treat. We are all about good food, good beer, and a friendly atmosphere. The Plough remains a real pub, where you are just as welcome to enjoy a decent pint of bitter at the bar or a bite to eat ranging from our grazing snack menu to fine three course meal. We look forward to welcoming you, your family and friends in the near future to enjoy spending some time with us
Our pub is lovely, but it is our people that make it stand out. The Plough is a well-loved “local” to its regulars, as well as offering a warm welcome to every new face. We believe every village deserves a great pub. Well-kept beer, a quality steak cooked by a proper chef and a glass of decent wine is a recipe for happiness, especially when served with a kind word and a sense of fun.
See you soon, Chris, Kelly and the team

FOOD & DRINK
We are great believers in keeping our food produce local.
We serve the good stuff. All our meat is of the highest quality, supplied from the traditional family butchers Honeywells Farm Shop in Woodplumpton. Our quality vegetables delivered daily from the long established family run Ribble Farm Fare in Longridge. The variety of seafood on offer is brought fresh from My Fish in Fleetwood to ensure it reaches your plate in its best condition. The Longridge ice cream, homemade sorbets and Lancashire crisps all come from Hills Fine foods.
Up to five well-kept real ales are on tap at the Plough. We have earned Cask Marque accreditation for our great quality ale. We also support the Campaign for real ale CAMRA by discounting a pint of real ale by 20p a pint or 10p a half for CAMRA members (Does not apply to Wetlands Ale). Most of our cask beers change offering a great variety, but to keep consistency and a few locals happy you can always find Timothy Taylors Landlord and our own Grimsargh Wetlands Ale, where 20p a pint is contributed towards the upkeep and development of the Grimsargh Wetlands that is situated at the rear of the pub.

We are pleased to be associated with our wine merchant C&O Wines, which was founded in 1973, importing exclusive hand-crafted wines from some of the world’s greatest wineries. Each of our wines are selected to allow us to pack our list with a great range of top quality and interesting wines. Let us help you choose something delicious to match your mood or your food.
We are serious about our spirits too. Gin and Rum are our current favorites for pouring. Try a recommended pour from our Gin Menu or make up your own from our range of Gins, mixers and garnishes. We hold a good selection of dark, spiced and white rums which is forever growing as the requests keep flooding in. We also have a range of blended and single malt whisky’s where there should be something for all tastes.
