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 high demand, being located on the Cobb & Co route, thus the original stables located behind the accommodation block that was built mid 1970s.

A fire gutted the pub in 1977 however 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 approximately 1860s as part of the Cobb & Co route between Ballarat and Melbourne. They have since 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.
