The Plough

- At Wombleton -


Richard & Lindsey are proud to welcome you to our award winning 15th century pub and restaurant, in the North Yorkshire village of Wombleton, three miles from the market town Helmsley.

The Plough is owned and operated by longstanding hospitality couple, Richard & Lindsey Johns.

Our food is lovingly prepared in a welcoming setting, recognised in the esteemed Estrella Top 50 UK gastropubs just three months after opening. We’re also listed in the 2024 Good Food Guide.

Pub & Restaurant

The Plough has been dispensing food & refreshments to weary travellers since 1498.

We’re honoured to continue that tradition, with the best local produce and warmest of Yorkshire welcomes.

Our food

The cornerstone of The Plough.
Award winning chef & owner Richard cooks for you personally, working unaided in his kitchen.
The food is seasonal, considered, and most importantly – delicious. Almost everything on the menu is made from scratch.


Reservations are available Wednesday to Sunday. We serve award-winning roasts as part of our Sunday lunch menu. We are closed on Tuesdays.
