Small traditional, comfortable and welcoming terraced former Wilsons house reached by some steps from the street (disabled access via side doors). Mainly opened-out with the bar slightly off to the right, in front of which is a seating area and a real fire. To the left is a modest well-kept lounge, with a games area behind that, boasting two pool tables. No fewer than three pool teams play out of the Plough, with landlord, Nick Aldred, himself a keen participant, so if you like to play pool, this is the place for you. To the rear is probably the most picturesque beer garden in the Borough of Stockport. No real ale since November 2017, although there are plans to reintroduce it in summer 2018. One changing guest ale was available from Enterprise Inn's list, typically this was Sharp's Doombar.
