The Plough

The Plough

A Hampshire country pub on the outskirts of Bursledon

The Plough is situated on the edge of Bursledon (near Southampton) and surrounded by farmland. Inspired by astronomy, the pub takes its name from the plough star constellation, which (at night) lights up in the wall adjacent to the main entrance. The design of the bar area was inspired by the description in the Wind in the Willows of Badger’s kitchen (“the floor was well-worn red brick and on the wide hearth burnt a fire of logs”). With a beautiful garden and children’s play area, the pub is ideal for those long hot summers and when the nights start to draw in, the roaring log fire and cosy interior really come into their own. Indeed, if you stand at the far end of the bar waiting for a drink your body forms the upper part of a comedy pair of legs! Fun Fact: there are 52 pewter tankards hanging from the roof in the bar — one for every week of the year.
