It's a shame that this inn, the main part of which dates from 1830, is so far from anywhere else. But if you're in the area, it's well worth a visit. Thomas Montgomery operated the inn and tavern for 25 years. When Thomas's wife Margaret died in 1855, he took down the sign and closed up shop. The late Georgian stone house fell into disrepair, until it was opened as a museum in 1975.
The old sign emblazoned with a picture of a plough, is one of the few artefacts that have survived from Montgomery's day. It now hangs in the museum. Tea is served from 2pm until 4.30pm from Tuesday to Sunday.
