Right next door to Tut 'n' Shive in West Laith Gate The "Little Plough", as it is universally called locally, is on CAMRA's Part One National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors. A pretty much unchanged 1934 interior courtesy of Hewitt's Brewery its then owners. Real 1930s feel in front public bar, rear lounge bar, corridor and outside Gents across the yard. Real ale served through 3 handpumps in the public bar.
