About The Plough Inn

The Plough Inn is the archetypal British country pub with defiantly atypical pub food. Housed in a 16th-century inn at Leadmill in Hathersage, this Derbyshire landmark seems straight out of a postcard, surrounded by 9 acres of lush land sloping towards the River Derwent. Enjoy a refreshing ale (we recommend the local Bradfield Brewery) in the courtyard or cosy beer garden, though in the winter there are two log burners inside to cosy up beside. Even with this magical setting, what truly makes The Plough Inn special is its menu. Championing seasonal, British produce at every turn, The Plough Inn twists some pub classics into their own incredible creations. Though changing frequently, the menu at Hathersage’s The Plough Inn often features refined British standards (the steak and kidney pudding is particularly heartwarming, as is their eponymous steak sandwich with smoked applewood cheese) alongside European items like homemade double confit terrine of pork and thin-crust Italian pizzas.

Lovely food and a great atmosphere as usual. It was busy so there was a little wait between courses, but not too long. Still a favourite of ours and a great place to take weekend guests.

With a roaring g stove on a wet and windy pre-Exmas lunch timr, the friendly welcome and service complemented the excellent Xmas menu. The meal was a delight and the expense justified the taste sensation. Overall, an excellent experience and fully recommended.

On a cold and rainy New Year's Day The Plough Inn was a perfect venue for our family get together. There was a log fire and plenty of space for our party of four grown ups and four kids. It felt a bit like a smart pub, but it was cosy and welcoming. The food was very good. The beef was cooked to a turn, the Guinea Fowl fell off the bone nicely and the vegetarian Puy Lentils were delicious. Good beer (Sheffield Brewery's Moonshine) and proper desserts. Nice.

Our party of 8 was warmly welcomed to the Plough, and staff had arranged a suitable table on the terrace, assuring us that if it was, too hot there, they would be happy for us to have a table in the restaurant. Service was friendly and efficient, the food was excellent and it was very clear that the chef sourced high quality produce. The pub was very busy at lunchtime and I was very glad that we had booked. I'm sure that evening dining in the restaurant would be a wonderful experience!

We arrived an hour early but the staff were still able to accommodate us. The staff were very polite and friendly and made us feel welcome. All the meals were excellent, served piping hot and well presented. Good value for the money. I will certainly eat there again.

We went for sunday lunch and the food was generally good but not excellent. The wait for the main course, and the following puddings, was long - a 2-course meal took over 2 and a half hours - and the pub was not even particularly busy. The staff - with the exception of the barman - did not seem to be enjoying their job!!

Very well furnished, clean and comfortable suite. Very attractive surroundings in the Peak District. Restaurant providing good quality meals. Attractive and well-maintained gardens. Bob and Cynthia are very courteous and friendly hosts. This is the fifth time we have stayed here

Lovely pub/restaurant we found in summer and sat outside. There is a great garden. Went for dinner last night. Plenty of dishes to choose from and a beautiful amuse Boucher. Half of restaurant being redecorated but did not detract.

My wife and I had our wedding breakfast at the Plough Inn, seven years ago. I am pleased to say the food served is still excellant as is the service and the atmosphere is still warm and friendly.

We had an excellent meal in lovely old surroundings. The bacon veloute was superb and the sea bream was very tasty. U fortunately we were too full for puddings but they did look tempting.

Really nice pub, nice atmosphere (good Christmas decorations!) Really very tasty food. The only downside was there wasn't quite enough toast with the very generous portion of paté!

It was excellent. There was a big party there and it was noisy but this was inevitable in the circumstances. Service was rather slow but good. I'd certainly recommend it and go again.

The food was excellent and my request for a small quantity of pasta was met. The service was somewhat leisurely and the drinks were expensive.

Good food, friendly service and nice relaxed atmosphere. It isn't cheap but the food is quite sophisticated and well cooked. They welcome dogs and walkers.

Food very tasty, but all the waiters seemed to be a little rushed, with not much attention to detail. Otherwise really nice pub, and we will try it again soon.

Our service was exceedingly delayed, and whilst the portions were good the green vegetables seemed very overcooked and well past there best. It was a Sunday but the kitchen did not seem to match the covers. If we go again hopefully it will be less busy and more able to cope

This was a special night out just before Christmas and was ruined by below average and vastly overpriced food. The place was virtually empty (no doubt a reflection of the prices and quality) and there was no atmosphere at all. We will definitely not be going to the Plough again.

Booking was seamless, just disappointed by the lack of attentiveness/memory by the bar/service staff - dined around 6pm on a Sunday - food was good.

Food good , service truly awful, food took ages, would not recommend. Head barman/waiter was more interested in chatting up his blonde companion than doing his job

Booked for a table at 7pm on Sunday 14th May and when we arrived I was told that serving finished at 6pm. Not happy at all.
