Not far from Looe up a beautiful wooded valley, this country pub of the last 50 years was formerly and variously a butcher's shop, a B&B and a general house. With a partly-carpeted slate floor and exposed beams, the pub leans towards the food trade, but always offers three real ales. The bar is open plan but is subtly divided into 3 drinking areas. It is primarily furnished with sewing machine tables and a few church pews; pictures adorn the walls. Two fireplaces have a solid fuel stove, a third is fake. Outside seating is on the lawn. The pub has no noisy machines, although there may be low-level background music playing. The Plough is famed for its distinctive menu, on which fresh locally-caught fish features prominently.
