great pub If you want a toby jug or theme pub then go somewhere else all these comments are rubbish good entertainment good food and a lot done for the local community as for the landlord well would you prefer if the pub was full of idiots where you couldnt have a quiet drink in safety. Try harder

golfeight You are right on the Button he is hateful. Not one of the customers like him they slag him off behind his back as well. He really a kid hater and the food in his little dirty resteraunt is to say the least NOT VERY GOOD either. You are also correct Lucy I applaud you both . Lets have some more of you speaking the truth about this man. GET HIM OUT

Child hating obnoxious landlord ruins this pub. He is offensive in his manner and even more offensive to look at.

Nice pub , good ale. Landlord seems abrupt at times, but ive found if you dont upset him, he doesnt bother you.

Not a place for kiddies and food is average, but proper locals pub with good beer will do for me

COULDN'T AGREE MORE - I HAVE LIVED IN ASHTON ALL MY LIFE AND THE PLOUGH HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FRIENDLY 'LOCAL'
THE LANDLORD IS INDEED AN OBNOXIOUS AND RUDE PERSON WHO HAS DRIVEN MANY REGULARS AWAY.
IN A TIME WHEN PUBS ARE SHUTTING AT A RAPID RATE YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD MAKE AN EXTRA EFFORT TO BE WELCOMING - THE BEST TIME TO DRINK IN THE PLOUGH IS WHEN THE LANDLORD IS AWAY

Its a shame that a traditional community pub has lost its custom due to the landlords lack of customer service . A mature person is not welcome so god knows how a younger person must feel

Totally agree with previous comments about the landlord.However this aside the plough is a good pub with a good atmosphere and decent real ale.

What a crying shame!! What should be the best village pub in Sale is run by an obnoxious and arrogant so called Landlord. If it was not for a selection of social misfits, he regards as friends, he would have no customers at all. Could I just remind you, this is the year 2009 and we are in the middle of a credit crisis and good customers should be respected and welcomed into their local hostelry. Heres hoping?!

The Landlord is a very rude man indeed.
blindbaby1999 - 19 Jan 2009 22:32
Could be a nice pup horrible little power crazy inflexible Landlord seems to hate kids or anyone not spending enough or even worse anyone spending t
too much and enjoying a laff. Keep out...

I dont agree with the comment that was made about people only gettin served first if there a regualar. I work in the plough and I serve people in order of which they came to the bar.

I was in there the other night not bad evening. All the Lads who are barred were in thats why it was so good like the old days people laughing and joking . You guessed it the Landlord was on holiday again. How much do they get paid. Too much, The place is fantastic without him

been in the plough a few times the lager is always flatlandlord has some attitude problem its a nice pub but the landlord does not give a monkeys basicly

An unpretentious little hostelry it's a pity the manager isn't. Not a bad pint of bitter when the manager's on his holidays. The staff very efficient and friendly, not bad food but the pub has an identity problem is it a football pub or a restaurant? type pub because the two don't sit together well.

Nice to see the Plough is rated about the worst pub in Sale I agree
blindbaby1999 - 7 Sep 2005 22:55
Well worth popping in for a pint of Harp Irish Lager. Plenty of areas to sit and chat, sometimes very busy though. Not somewhere to go if you're into winebars. Much less pikey than The Buck across the road.

The plough is "family friendly" in theory...the only place children aren't aloud is the vault. As most people know many licensing restrictions apply in pub the landlord is there to enforce them. Donít really think the plough is somewhere for children because of the atmosphere-itís an old mans pub. What happened to taking children to the park instead of the pub? The restaurant is 100% family friendly and comes complete with kids menu! Iíve never had a problem being served and Iím not a regular!

The most unwelcoming Pub I have ever been in not at al family friendly . The landlord has an attitude problem
Dave Traynor - 21 Aug 2004 21:15
Miserable gets? never seen anyone answering that description in there. Look out for the Barry Manilow look-a-like, he'll chat to anyone. Decent Hydes bitter, £1.70 a pint.

Nice enough pub, NOT family friendly
anonymous - 2 Mar 2004 10:51
A regulars pub. Which means you won't get served if you're not a regular. Miserable gets.
Nick - 8 Oct 2003 12:21
A generally friendly pub if you are an adult. The pub has a sign that says families welcome - they aren't!
anonymous - 20 Aug 2003 14:25
Visited 'family friendly'Plough recently to be greeted by extremely sour faced landlord who obviously doesn't like children. Don't recommend for families, won't be going back
