Noticed that the pub looks to be closed, anyone know anything about it?

I think it's been closed for a while - it looked closed the last time I went that way. I used to frequent it in the 80s. I think the licencees were ladies, if I remember correctly. There was a 'country solicitor'-type who used to sit in the corner and take the piss out of people with great elegance.
It had a Food Safety Inspection in October last year. Not a glowing report, though. http://www.ratemyplace.org.uk/inspections/the-plough-inn-woodseaves-staffordshire
Well at least it wasn't 0. Had a drink in there at the end of May and it was looking a bit tired
I really liked it in the old days, and they genuinely seemed not to mind us going there..
Darts 22* may have something to say about this when he passes through.

One door closes another opens
Cock reopens under new ownership and serving frothing beer
Darts 22 is the truth
Sorry that made me laugh, because this forum is getting a right reputation for dodgy goings on now topping it off with frothing beer
I gather that the new owners of the Cock are the same people who have the Crown at Hyde Lea
i know nothing new
Noone probably knows that it originated as the Blue Plough
Would that be when the Hudson family had it? Plough by 1900 if I remember correctly
That's correct, and The Malt Shovel at Chorley.
Before that, when that area of the village was known as the nook
Ah, before my time. Talking of Ploughs, I know that in Stafford there was one in Browning Street, but do you know anything about a Plough in Rickerscote?
This document contains the entry - Documents of title relating to The Plough Inn, Rickerscote Road, Stafford, 1802-1933 (6704) - on the ninth page in 'Title Deeds'.
Thanks for that information. Really must get into the Records Office, I've got a pile of stuff to look up.
there was aslo a PLOUGH BOy on Wolverhampton Road
What a fookin miserable place
Popped in for a pint last week
Place stank of Dettol
The whiskey bottles are protected by chicken wire
The locals turn there back on you as you walk in ( OK OK I would too if I saw me )
Woodseaves - twinned with Alabama
Strangely, we used to frequent the Plough at Woodseaves in the early '80s, and found it a great place, sad to see it in demise now..
..still, I suppose that that is thirty years ago now..
No need to do that Noah, just order a copy of The Inns and Alehouses of Stafford - Through the North Gate. Available from www.john-connor.co.uk . Plough Boy is also in there
