Beeston's pub can boast a history stretching back almost 500 years. There has been an alehouse on the site of the Ploughshare since at least 1585, pulling its first pint when Queen Elizabeth I was on the throne and Shakespeare was a boy! The oldest part of the current building dates back to 1620 and is full of centuries of memories and village tradition.
Sadly, the pub closed its doors for the last time in early 2016 and houses have now been built on what was the beer garden. It's our aim purchase and revitalise the pub for the benefit of the local community.
