The Plough Inn is situated at the top of the square in the picturesque village of Hillsborough, Co.Down. The famous family owned business boasts an excellent reputation for hospitality, atmosphere & wonderful food.

Originally established in 1758 as a coaching inn, the Plough has a rich heritage with the current owners, the Patterson Family, having been in business for over 30 years. The Patterson Family have invested their time and energy into transforming this historic building into an award-winning pub and restaurant.
