The Plough

Wombleton

Award winning restaurateurs Richard and Lindsey Johns returned to the pub sector with the opening of The Plough in Wombleton in 2023.

Award winning restaurateurs Richard and Lindsey Johns returned to the pub sector with the opening of The Plough in Wombleton in 2023.

It is a historic 15th Century pub where monks were known to serve their brews through the small window in the wall of the now dining room in the 1400s and 1500s.

The food offering is the cornerstone of what the pub is all about, taking classic dishes and giving them their own modern interpretation. The focus is on using Yorkshire produce and curating dishes in a style that chef Richard Johns has crafted over nearly 20 years.

Richard cooks alone in the kitchen with almost all of the food made from scratch, including all ice creams, sorbets and sauces.  

Lindsey is the face of the restaurant and is passionate about offering guests a fantastic service.

The pub is just four miles from the Hovingham Inn, which they opened in 2019, but they exited their lease in summer 2022.
