The Plough



The Plough was situated at 4 Market Street. This pub has now been demolished.

It is referred to in a short story called 'Darcy in the land of youth' by the Irish author Frank O'Connor (Frank O'Connor Collected Stories, Vintage Books, 1983) - referring to p267f 'Having got rid of her spite, Janet began to brighten. "This is wonderful," she sighed with tranquil pleasure as she floated downhill towards Alton and the Plough, a pleasant little inn, standing at the bridge, half timbered above and stone below, with a big yard to one side where a dozen cars were parked, and at the other a long garden with rustic seats overlooking the river.' There follows a longish discussion in the bar.
