The Plough is a large, three-storey building, probably older than its Georgian fa├žade. Porch entrance is no longer in use after most recent collision with a lorry. Internal front wall at this point is refaced in typical H&W stone-cladding. 2 small bars and drinking passage. On the rear-left is the rectangular games bar (was saloon) with 1930s parquet floor. Inglenook fireplace at far end has modern stone cladding. At the other end is what looks like a classic 1950s counter. Back shelves look 1930s but more likely 1950s in inter-war style. Part of wall removed to make wider opening to rear games room from inner lobby. Front-left lounge (was public bar) with stepped 1950s counter front. Back shelves appear original 1950s. Matchwood dados, re-sanded parquet floor and fireplace all look 1930s but could be 50s. Restaurant with opened-up access from lounge through timber frames. Parquet floor and matchwood dados extend into here with another 1930s fireplace. Note the former stables on the left.
