We're back with a new Summer dessert - Peach, vanilla & Summer berry trifle...

Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Book now for our fabulous event for Melbourne Food & Wine Festival on March 12th.

This is being showcased through the Maribyrnong City Council’s Eat. Drink. Westside program also.

With Two Birds Brewing and Best’s Great Western, we will showcase dishes from the 1860s, using indigenous, locally sourced ingredients, as well as beer and wine with links to the past.

The Plough Hotel was established in 1868 and was a popular meeting place for local traders and producers from the Western region of Victoria.

We have had a look back to those times to think about what the townsfolk would have eaten and drank at The Plough more than a century ago.

In collaboration with Two Birds Brewing (Spotswood) and Bests Winery (est. 1866) we will serve a three-course lunch showcasing dishes from the 1860s, using indigenous, locally sourced ingredients, as well as a beer (harking back to the brewing techniques of the last century) and a wine (from Bests’ Nursery Block, planted 1866!) both of which have historical links to the past. We will serve this side by side with what each business has become known for today, with the brewer and winemaker on hand to answer any curly, history-related questions.

Book through the MFWF website


A menu focusing on pub favourites, share plates and pizzas and a drinks list that showcases what Victoria has to offer.

The Plough Hotel’s philosophy is to support smaller producers who have embraced a passion for the particular product that they make and those that feel similarly excited about what our vast state has to offer.


The Plough Hotel is a Boutique Hotel offering the personalised service and attention every traveller seeks when away from home.
