Beautiful bright and cheerful decor and welcome. Had 3 courses each which were perfect especially the belly pork. Staff were very attentive but not overly so and we enjoyed time between courses without being rushed. Will definitely dine here again.

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.

    Very accommodating staff. Nothing too much trouble. Pleased to see smaller sized dishes on menu as I have difficulty in eating normal portions.

    The Plough is nearer a restaurant than a pub with tables covered in tablecloths as far as the eye can see.

    There is a bar where locals stand and chat and they were only too willing to chat to me as I ordered our pre dinner drinks. In fact everyone from staff to local drinkers were very friendly and affable. The fact that the bar had Timothy Taylor's Landlord on draught was a bonus.

    We were shown to our table in the separate restaurant section, but still in view of the rest of the pub. Our order was taken and the main course, we omitted a starter, was delivered extremely fast.

    The Plough is a pleasant pub/restaurant and if I return to Cambridge at any time in the future I will certainly visit again. The food was good and I cannot say enough times how friendly the staff were.

    We are two foodies who went here for lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic . We both chose the mackerel rissoles from the special board at £6.50. This was followed by lamb at £17.50 . This was absolutely yummie. Tender lamb cooked two ways with scrumptious pommes Anna and petit pois a la Francaise.
    My desert was another special which was delicious . Apple and rhubarb strudel with raspberry coulis. oat crumb and custard. We will definitely go back.

    We booked on line less than 30 minutes before and were delighted to get in at such short notice. We were received and welcomed and quickly shown to our table. Service was friendly and slick - staff seemed really on the ball with drinks, water etc. The food was very good and served in good time. The environment is relaxing and stylish. We have been before, and will no doubt return again!
