Beeston’s pub [now The Ploughshare] can boast a history stretching back almost 500 years. There has been a pub, alehouse on the site of the Ploughshare since at least 1585. This was when Queen Elizabeth I was on the throne and Shakespeare was a boy! The oldest part of the current Ploughshare Pub building dates back to 1620 and is full of centuries of memories and village tradition. Beeston’s last remaining pub was under threat from redevelopment. The Ploughshare, which served locals for 400 years before its closure in 2016, was a staple of rural village life. Having brought the pub back from the brink of re-development into housing, Beeston Community Enterprises Ltd now looks to reopen the pub to the public which it now has. Beeston Community Enterprises was formed by a group of villagers in 2016 to purchase the pub and run it for the benefit of the area. More than £150,000 has been raised towards buying the building, which dates back to 1620. Plans include reopening the bar and restaurant, opening a cafe and small shop and offering community services. A combination of share offers, grants and loans, in addition to the initial £150,000 raised, enabled the purchase of the pub in late January 2019. Plans are now in place to refurbish the pub and make it the hub for our local community!
