“…THERE AIN’T NO JOURNEY WHAT DON’T CHANGE YOU SOME “ *
A bit hesitant to start this new adventure but, as they say, a faint heart never won a fair lady.
As we just celebrated our second birthday here, at this truly picturesque country pub. And due to an unexpected pile of free time (temporary peace & quiet thanks to COVID-19 repercussion) I will briefly illustrate throughout my blog why we decided to take on this journey.
Our growing interest in the hospitality industry started 15 + 30 = many (years ago). John was always a long-term consultant, assisting with new openings in number of mainstream restaurant chains around the UK. Whereas I was more of a curious one, trying to identify different types of customer service techniques in the industry in numerous ventures across USA and UK.
We were always very much about people interaction and, I might even risk the statement, this is something we are best at.We’re thoroughly enjoying interacting with you, getting to know you. Some of our customers and neighbours became our friends which we couldn’t be more grateful for. Hospitality industry is very specific – due to a high turnover you get to meet many wonderful people. Naturally, along the way, some of those friendships last for life.
When we took over The Plough in March 2018, we wanted it to be exactly the kind of place where we would like to enjoy our time off – a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, where everybody’s welcome. Seriously good cooking with fantastic, seasonal ingredients. A welcoming smile on arrival for those who join us, not only for locals. But for those who like to eat out, discover new flavours and be educated and amazed by our chefs’ imagination as much as we do.
There are times when we want to surprise or intrigue you with our menu or daily specials. There are times when we want to hug you and spread the love of our food like your Mum or Grandma did when you were a child. There are times when we want to celebrate something and make it the one & only experience. As Julius Caesar once said, “Experience is the teacher of all things”. Join us to discover the world through its taste and let the journey continue.
Quoting after Savoy Hotel’s motto: “We constantly strive for excellence, perfection and quality”, we have so many plans, ideas and dreams, to make The Plough at Euxton an amazing eatery and community hub. Therefore, we very much appreciate your support, kind words and frequent visits.
Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful faces soon and, in the meantime, watch this space as there is plenty more to follow…
