The Plough, Myrniong | History

The Plough Myrniong 1980s

Myrniong and The Plough

The Plough is situated in the tiny township of Myrniong, population of approximately 210 people. Half way between Melbourne and Ballarat, this 155 year old bluestone pub has been turned into a modern bistro while keeping the character and charm of its history.

The township of Myrniong was settled in the 1850s and the pub was licensed in 1861, to service the gold miners at Mt Blackwood. It was in demand being located on the Cobb & Co route, thus the original stables that stand behind the accommodation that was built around 1960s.

A fire gutted the pub in 1977 but the original bluestone building still stands.

Mark Mills purchased the licence of The Plough in 2010 giving the building a complete modern make-over and providing the community with a place to gather and enjoy upmarket bistro meals.

The historic stables that date back to at least 1915 have been restored and offer the perfect venue for any event including Birthday Celebrations, Christmas Parties, Corporate Functions, Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions - you are only limited by your imagination.
