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.

    3 friends visiting from London and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the beautiful Plough Restaurant which was busy even on a Monday Lunchtime. The welcome was warm and service excellent. All our various dishes were absolutely delicious. Looking forward to introducing more friends to The Plough in the near future as the restaurant experience is unbeatable.

    I've had my work leaving do booked here. Fantastic service "A la carte" service, in every respect. We were too many people for the private function room, which in normal circumstances they accommodate only for 18 people; but for Alan & Pasquale hasn't been a problem at all, to try to make it perfect for 25 people. So much appreciation for all your understanding and work. Not trouble at all. Lovely staff and nothing hasn't been a problem at all. Beautiful layout, candles, vases with roses, beautiful. And not a problem at all...such a quick turnover for 25 people...service, food, everything was just great. Lots of thanks and appreciation for making my leaving do so lovely. Excellent and well done. Thank you so very much. Mrs LG Parfitt

    Friendly, good service and great food. The Sunday roasts were spot on, and the pasta from the daily specials was lovely although portion was too large. Our friends who hadn't been before were very impressed. We often use this venue and would definitely recommend.

    We throughly enjoyed our experience at The Plough at Coton. The decor was extermely well put together and the staff very polite and efficient.
    Our food was delicious and there was no pressure to "eat & go" so we lingered a while and to savour the end of a delightful Valentine evening.
    We would highly recommend this venue and we will be returning.
