After 14 years, we have had to make the heart-breaking decision to not reopen the Plough after lockdown.

Due to the model of the business, excessive overheads and trading restrictions, the Plough is simply not a viable business moving forward and there are no scenarios in which we can find a solution to enable us to continue trading. This decision has not come lightly, and it has certainly been an emotional roller coaster over the last 14 weeks as we have battled with our head and our hearts.

We would like to thank you, our customers, regulars, friends and most importantly our fantastic team, for all the support and fun over the years. You helped us make The Plough the ‘Best Public House in Nottinghamshire’.

We have met some amazing people at the Plough, and we are gutted that we cannot have a big bash to say goodbye properly. What a night that would have been!

For anyone who has vouchers or upcoming bookings, we will contact you personally to discuss alternative options over the coming weeks once pubs and restaurants begin to reopen. If you have any queries or just fancy having a chat, you can give Rach a call on 07824 317060.

We have made many wonderful memories over the years, ones which we will cherish forever. We hope to see you again at some point in the future but, for now at least, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything.

Mark, Rach and Henry x
