Much-loved south Notts pub closed for good

A popular south Nottinghamshire pub and restaurant has closed for good after its owners said re-opening restrictions mean it is no longer a viable business.

The Plough at Normanton on the Wolds was renowned for its food, barbecues and extensive beer garden – but it won’t be re-opening on Saturday, when restrictions are lifted on pubs.

In a statement, the owners said: “Due to the model of the business, excessive overheads and trading restrictions, the Plough is simply not a viable business moving forward and there are no scenarios in which we can find a solution to enable us to continue trading. This decision has not come lightly, and it has certainly been an emotional roller coaster over the last 14 weeks as we have battled with our head and our hearts.

“We have met some amazing people at the Plough, and we are gutted that we cannot have a big bash to say goodbye properly. What a night that would have been!

“We have made many wonderful memories over the years, ones which we will cherish forever. We hope to see you again at some point in the future but, for now at least, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything.”

The statement added that anyone who has vouchers or upcoming bookings will be contacted personally by the owners of the Plough to discuss alternative options over the coming weeks once pubs and restaurants begin to reopen. If you have any queries, call 07824 317060.
