Miss Ryan Cocktail

Miss Rya Cocktail
Welcome to a new year at The Plough where head chef Mark Mills is entering his 15th year.
He only has another 35 years to catch Kate Foley's record of being the longest-serving publican at this hotel!

Today we head back to 1877 when land sales exceeded expectations, with some sceptical locals scoffing that the purchasers had paid too much!

Some sales included: 
– 6 acres on the Pentland Hills sold for £17 per acre 
– The police barracks were purchased by the government for £220 
– Mrs Ryan of The Plough Hotel snatched land within the township at the highest price of £54 per acre. 

The sales caused a stir amongst the usually calm locals, with the expectation that the railway passing near the town would surely reward these savvy speculators.

Today's cocktail raises a glass to another brave and inspirational character we caught up with recently: Presenting the Miss Ryan Cocktail, reflecting the deep blue sea with a shimmer of gold lining.

Here's to another year of good times, great food, and fantastic history at The Plough!

And to Miss Ryan.
