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.

    Food, wine and service, as always before, were excellent also. My first port of call when I return to Cambridge and need good healthy food of high quality. Thanks for the restorative!

    Greeted and seated very promptly. Friendly staff. Service was a little slow. Food wasn't wow, two of us had chicken schnitzel both cooked different, mine was slightly greasy, my friends was a bit over cooked. Belly pork was ok, but the cabbage quarter was certainly undercooked. Eton mess was the best part of the meal.
