Found nestled in the quaint village of Coton, 3 miles from Cambridge, The Plough seamlessly balances pub food and fine dining. The Plough in Coton is a charming cornerstone of the community offering summertime al fresco dining and a popular Sunday roast.

Warm haggis with roquette and tarragon, fresh apple and mustard sauce is a favourite starter, and there are regularly-changing specials for something one-off. Main courses at The Plough near Cambridge include pub favourites such as fish and chips, along with inventive options like fennel, cucumber and hazelnut salad with brioche croutons.

The desserts on The Plough menu comprise classic favourites, such as apple crumble with custard, and crème brulee with boozy prunes. A selection of light bites, including casual options such as pizza and sandwiches, is also available.

This historic building offsets original low ceilings and gnarled beams with contemporary embellishments. The Plough in Fen Ditton is full of character and a 15-minute drive from Cambridge.

    Excellent, welcoming, attentive staff. Varied Menu, excellent quality, great flavours but not over the top or challenging.
    Nice decor- but could maybe do with a few more soft furnishings- quite noisy.
    Great place, will use again.

    I did not find the food as good as the time I visited your restaurant a couple of months ago. The fish was rather dry and I found that there were too many very large supposed chips. They were more like potato chunks than chips.

    Excellent food, atmosphere & good professional & caring staff.
    A great venue & watering hole.

    Everyone in our party of six enjoyed their meal. Service was a little slow - we left at 3.30 after a 1pm booking - but the restaurant was completely full and I imagine the kitchen under some pressure. The only minor problem was that we were told that one meal of lukewarm undercooked fish was meant to be pink. However the complaint was dealt with professionally on the spot and the meal replaced.
