Tris C left this review about The Plough

Dating to the 1730s but rebuilt in 1898 with its attractive cupola, something of a minor local landmark.
This had been in the hands of BrewDog, with its industrial ‘made from girders’ ethos, the interior is now really quite attractive. There’s some wood panelling to the right wall with a fantastic polychromatic tiled depiction of a ploughman and ox above some mosaic floor tiling. The end wall in a carpeted snug of sorts is lilac, along with a 1930s’ fireplace (used in winter), comfy lounge furniture and an upright piano, above which, is a dartboard, obviously unused unless there’s a slew of wannabe pianists in the local A & E. The bar is to the right, featuring a little bare brick but with the original bar back. The bar itself is attractive dark wood field panelled. Lighting comes from crystal chandeliers and hanging clear glass lanterns above the bar, along with candles in bottles to tables. Furniture is conventional, with old school tables with brocade upholstered banquettes to the periphery and standard chairs; the ceiling is white Anaglypta. The crowd is what you’d expect in these parts, with closing times of 22.00 Monday to Wednesday, 23.00 for Thursday, 00.00 Friday and Saturday, but just 20.00 on Sunday.
The barmaid was striking and the barman friendly, presiding over three forlorn unused pumps, serving me with a pint of Goose Island for £6.00.
I quite liked this place, more so if real ale returned, which would get the score up. It makes for a good double with the quirky Kenton, less so the slightly crepuscular and marginally half-cocked Gun.

A corner pub now done out in a typical Brewdog style, it was very quiet on my Saturday afternoon visit, but very comfortable nonetheless. A good selection of beers and tasters were freely offered.It is what it is but I for one quite like it.

Now Brewdog and its now been changed to a more industrial style favoured by them.Smaller than most brewdogs but busy and a decent selection of beers.The smoke alarms went off as I walked through the door so was an uncomfortable visit until they got it sorted.Absolute beauty of a beer in Tropic Thunder from Brewdog.
