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.

    Had a really nice meal here. Starters of gin cured Salmon and a the terrine were delicious. Duck leg was ok although wish Id has the lamb which my partner had as that looked and tasted fab.
    Dessert chosen was spiced pumpkin brulee which was different and whilst not really like a normal brulee was very good.

    Lunch with visiting friends was perfect in every respect. Dishes chosen from the all-day menu or the specials board were equally delicious and beautifully presented. Our waitress was delightful as well as being efficient and attentive. The Plough is highly recommended.

    An excellent meal, shame the selected special pudding ran out just before our order. It was a little to noisy at first to carry on a good conversation.

    Could not have been better!!. The owner gave us great attention and all his staff did likewise. 6 people ate, no complaint from anyone - doesn't happen often with our group. Will be going back asap.

    The staff couldn't have been more professional and helpful if they tried! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely decor, very clean and bright. Food well presented and packed full of flavour. Good portion size too. Very enjoyable first visit to the Plough. We will return.

    Lovely pub in a lovely rural location. Lots of parking and a nice garden. The inside was stylish and a nice atmosphere. There were some interesting food choices although a disappointing lack of vegetarian choices. Service was a little slow at times but they were busy and they were always polite and attentive. I would definitely visit again.

    Sea Bream main course was truly excellent. And on an extremely busy day our service could not be faulted.
