The Plough Inn at Wigglesworth, Wigglesworth, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 4RJ
This charming, country inn dating from the 1720 offers comfortable, cottage style, en suite bedrooms, many with original oak beamed roofs. The delightful Conservatory Restaurant offers spectacular views of the hills, limestone scars and stone walls for
Originally a farmhouse, the building became an inn when the farmer’s wife began brewing and selling ale in 1760. A list of landlords dating back to this time is displayed in the bar.
The cosy shoehorn bar features oak beams, a unique collection of shoehorns, horse brasses and pictures and articles relating to the history of the inn. During colder months, the bar is kept snug by a real coal fire. Off the bar is the ‘Settle Down’, originally the farmhouse parlour, with exposed stonework and oak beams. This room is ideal for families, equipped with a number of games and toys for young children. Another room accessible from the bar is the wood panelled Tap Room, used by locals who come in for a drink and chat. This room has a darts board (we have a very good darts team).
The inn has 2 restaurants, the Harlequins Conservatory Restaurant and the Oak Room. Harlequins Restaurant looks out over the garden and has magnificent views of the Yorkshire Dales with 2 of the famous 3 peaks clearly visible. This restaurant features the original farm well and a collection of clown dolls, figures and pictures. Come evening, candlelight reflects off the conservatory windows creating a romantic setting. The Oak Room is an old world restaurant with leaded light windows, oak panelling, old photographs of the inn and lots of bric-a-brac collected by owners over the years.
The inn has a large car park to the side and front. For fine days there are plenty of tables at the front and in the garden. The village stocks can also be found here.
