Very good smoked haddock fishcake, the most delicious salad, so full of flavour, probably the best thing on the plate. But I should like to mention our waitress, Gaby, who was just perfect. Friendly without overdoing it, just right.

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.

    The welcome was delightful and the table service was exemplary. Pity the high priced steak did not live up to expectation. Suggest a better butcher!

    We often meet family at the Plough as Coton is a midway point for us. We always find a warm welcome there. On this occasion we had a good time as we had a lot to talk about and the slow service (it was a very busy sunny Sunday lunchtime) was not a problem.

    We had an evening meal at the restaurant on 26th March and it was a very enjoyable experience. The staff (Callum) were very friendly and knowledgeable. I had the salmon starter followed by the vegetarian option which was absolutely delicious and an unusual combination. My husband had the pate followed by the belly pork which was gorgeous and melted in the mouth. We really cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, the food is always fantastic, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the bill is never too high.
