Set beside the River Wansbeck, the delightful village of Mitford has the ruins of a castle, an exceptionally fine parish church, and an outstanding hostelry, The Plough Inn. It is owned and run by Helen Shand, a welcoming host who has always wanted to run a pub and now presides over one of the best. The inn has two bars, each with its open fire, as well as a pleasant beer garden. Quality beers, real ales, fine wines and spirits are all available as well as tea and coffee. The Plough is well-known locally for the quality of the appetising homemade food it serves which is traditional in essence but with a modern twist. The lunch and dinner menus, which change every 3 months, offer a good choice of dishes, including a vegetarian option. Thereâ€™s also a separate menu for children and for Sunday lunch. On Tuesday evenings, the pub hosts a quiz night, starting at 8.30pm, on the first Sunday evening of the month, all local folk musicians are invited to â€œbring your fiddle, mouth organ, banjo or penny whistle to give us a tune!â€ So come on down and experience the wonderful atmosphere for yourself.
