Welcome to The Plough.
A Country Pub in Sleapshyde.

Sleapshyde is a quiet hamlet in St Albans, Hertfordshire, surrounded by stunning English Countryside. The primary alehouse dates back to 1690 and features wooden beams, which have recently been restored to their original state. Lime plastered walls, two fireplaces and low ceilings make The Plough a cosy and inviting pub, which is family and dog-friendly.

The Freehold has recently been purchased by Dylans, St Albans; a truly independent pub serving similar drinks to the city centre restaurant but with proper pub food.

The Plough has a spacious garden with covered dining on the terrace, surrounded by fields and horses. The pub is just off the Alban Way: a 45-minute walk or 9-minute cycle from Hatfield and an hour’s walk or 20-minute cycle from St Albans City Centre.

We offer a welcome pitstop for a drink, lunch or dinner.
