Our Proud Legacy of Landlords:

Over the years, The New Plough Inn has been under the care of dedicated and passionate landlords, each contributing to its unique character. Louis and Darren are the 5th ever landlords of the pub, taking the reins in 2008 and continuing the tradition of excellence that began with the original Wolloff sisters.

Before Louis and Darren’s tenure, the pub was skilfully managed by Tom and Mary Swain, who held the position of landlords from 1989 to 2008. The baton was then passed to Mick and Maggie Duckworth, who lovingly served the community from 1975 to 1989. Prior to them, Ruth and Mack were at the helm until 1975, leaving behind a lasting legacy.
