Staff very helpful and attentive, food delicious, reasonably priced, and beautifully presented. But, O the noise! Music too loud, other diners too near, so couldn't have a private conversation without shouting. Such a shame, it took the edge of a very pleasurable lunch.

With stunning riverside views and a large beer garden with a crackling fire pit for al fresco dining, The Plough – Fen Ditton is housed in a restored paper mill and coaching inn whose history dates back hundreds of years. With chunky wooden tables, plenty of armchairs & fireplaces, the pub is a rustic hideaway serving modern British cuisine.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Plough menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Plough – Fen Ditton cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Plough in Fen Ditton is a 12-minute drive from Cambridge Rail Station.

    The staff was helpful.. waiting time for courses was very long and they was running out of items of food which was on the menu...
    The staff was helpful and apologised and never charged for our deserts as an apology which was nice of them...

    The Restaurant was very cold in the area where we were seated which meant my companion had to wear her jacket throughout the meal. Initial service was good but deteriorated. Main courses were fine with the exception of a hot salad which was tasteless. After waiting some time for the dessert menu's we ordered two mini deserts with coffees and an ice cream. The coffee's arrived after five minutes and were drunk with no sign of the desserts. After twenty minutes we gave up waiting and asked for the bill. The restaurant was not busy but the staff were preoccupied with setting up tables and a marquee for the evening meals and neglected the customers they already had.

    The restaurant looked beautiful. Our food was amazing. All three courses were enjoyed by all in our party of four. The service was faultless.

    Great experience as always - excellent attention to detail in the food presentation and to us as customers. Love coming back here. My friend was visiting from Australia for 2 weeks and this was our first choice - in fact it's so good she's taking her family next week.

    The service was great from the red haired petite waitress and the surprised me as booked before read the reviews complaining about the slow service. The food was overall lovely but my egg with the fish cake was hard and my daughters duck slightly overcooked but other wise presented well. Should have said at the time but it did get very busy and needed to get home. I don't really class this as gastro- pub food and so a little pricey but the food was good.
    The side plates looked dirty but we did not need to use them and the floor of the ladies needed a scrub, looks generally a little tired which is a shame as its a lovely setting and should imagine great outside on a sunny day. Probably would not recommend to a friend might try the Ancient Warrior next time.
