Ploughman Bar

Alderley

Ploughman Bar is Alderley’s friendly local and first small bar, which has made its home in the suburb’s original general store and saddlery.

Converted by the owners (an architect and an electrician) into a funky inviting space with original bay windows and planter box partitions, Ploughman Bar makes a great place to stop in any time of day for a cool drink and a delicious Ploughmans platter.
