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.

    Lovely staff. Good food and lovely location.i had the the goganzola,pear and smoked duck was really good but a little too much raddichio in relation to the other ingredients
    It needed some green leaves in there to make it look more appealing. Only a small thing otherwise it was a lovely experience.

    Service was good but the food was not! Really disappointing as its usually good, but the table next to us also complained so it wasn't a one off. The duck was rubbery and the sauce was bitter, the dauphinoise potatoes were actually a dry potato cake and the belly of pork was dry. Staff very apologetic but it still spoilt our special occasion.

    Family Sunday lunch also belated birthday celebration. Staff pleasant, helpful although service a bit slow probably due to place being full. Meal excellent but care needed with roast potatoes, a tad burnt. Granddaughter provided a cake for which the restaurant provided plates and cutlery at no charge, excellent. All in all a delightful lunch.

    Great atmosphere, great food and superb service. My only regret is that I was only in the area for the one night

    This was my first visit to the The Plough at Coton. I certainly propose to come again.

    It was ideal for a light lunch with my daughter-in-law.

    We both much enjoyed it. But it is a pity the flat ceiling has not been adapted to make the acoustic of the dinning room less very noisy. Far too much noise for comfort.

    My first visit and loved the atmosphere, fresh tablecloths etc. and warm welcome. Great menu, and very much enjoyed the meal, but fresh cream with the profiteroles would have been an improvement since I suspect the filling had been frozen? I didn't like to complain since I had been invited by a friend, but would not choose it again. Otherwise, definitely will be coming back.

    We liked the friendly service, the choice on the menu, and very quick delivery of main courses when it was busy for Sunday lunch.
    Food quality was excellent. Overall exactly what we were hoping for.

    The food was good (especially the lemon sorbet) but a bit slow and it was very slow in getting our bill afterwards with the result that we took longer than we anticipated.
