The Plough Inn - About Us

The Plough Inn

Hello and welcome to our website. We have had The Plough Inn since 2004 and are delighted to serve so many loyal and regular customers who make working here such a pleasure. We would like to say a BIG thank you to all our patrons and also to the local bed and breakfasts who continue to send their guests to us.

Another thanks goes to the staff of so many local businesses who support us by spending their lunch breaks and work get togethers with us at The Plough Inn.

Our Aim

It is our aim to take good care of our customers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we are delighted that so many of our customers return again and again. We are a small family run business, not part of a pub chain, and this allows us to sell fresh and locally sourced home cooked food which is of a high quality and provides value for money.

The Team

Owner Kim runs the pub alongside her twin sister Sue. We have a wonderful group of staff who all work really hard and are now like part of the family. It is them that help create the wonderful friendly atmosphere and make it a nice place to be. A massive thank you to you all.

Georgie & Tom

Georgie & Tom

Another important part of our family is Tom − The Plough Inn's resident cat. (Georgie, who at the ripe old age of 19, we are sad to say, is now in heaven)! We are delighted that so many of our customers adore Tom. He has chosen to live downstairs in the pub itself. Although he had a home upstairs he was not thrilled with Kim's over zealous Jack Russells and Border Collie rescue dog and has decided that he prefers being amongst the customers.

Our cats may well be amongst the most photographed moggies ever and are on Facebook pages across the world!


We have some lovely old photos of The Plough Inn and its surrounding buildings on show. Some of them even show the old tram lines that once ran along the Main Street in Fulford. We are unsure of the exact age of the pub itself but we know the building is more than 300 years old. There are records of it being open for business as The Plough Inn as early as 1822 and prior to that as a coach house.

If anyone has any history or pictures of our pub then we would love to hear from you.

What's On Offer

Opera House

We have a full menu on offer each day along with daily specials. We use locally sourced produce for many of our dishes. All of our food is home cooked to order including our popular homemade chips.

We offer a main menu which is full of hearty dishes including fish and vegetarian choices along with light bites, starters and a roast on Sundays which comes with homemade yorkshire puddings. We also provide children's meals and a variety of puddings and desserts. Food can be pre-ordered by telephone for those who are in a hurry and we have copies of our menu which people are welcome to take away.

A full wine list is available to compliment our menu but we also have plenty for those who prefer a pint including Black Sheep and Timothy Taylors hand pulled real ales. Of course we also provide a variety of bottled and soft drinks as well − we like to think there is something for everyone.

The Plough Inn holds buffets for all sorts of occasions including birthdays, christenings, funerals and anniversaries as well as work functions like Christmas and leaving parties. If you would like to know more or book an event with us then please call us on 01904 615431.
