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.

Customer reviews for The Plough
(**** 22 August 2019 by Kathryn from Cambridge
I was extremely disappointed. I have taken guests to The Plough for years, and last summer the food was excellent. But I have taken people there four times this summer, and each time it was very disappointing. The batter on the fish and chips was not crispy, as it should be, the brownie in the dessert was not very good (it was excellent in the past), the starters were very disappointing. Altogether I was very unhappy with the food and sorry to have taken guests there. The atmosphere outside is wonderful, so this is a great disappointment.

An enjoyable meal. Food well prepared and served. Meat excellent (I had the lamb and the folks had pork). The vegetarian option was good but somewhat limited (but nothing to grumble about). We we had our meal in the Winnowing room this time (previous meals have been in the main restaurant and outdoors in the garden) and by popular choice this is our least enjoyable area to eat in (BUT not enough to prevent us from coming to The Plough for a meal again). All the staff (from owners to waiters/waitresses/waitrons) were attentive and knew there business. And to cap it all, impromptu entertainment was provided which kept the patrons and staff "captivated". The Plough is a great place to eat - pity it had taken us so long to "find" this eatery.

Have eaten here 3/4 times before and The Plough is always great. Waiting staff are friendly and offer advice if asked.

Hottest day of the year but atmosphere was inviting and hosts were welcoming! The food was tasty and good, but a few tweaks to some presentation would not go astray. Made host aware of a few things and were taken on board with a pleasant acknowledgement when the bill arrived. Waiting service was very good, friendly and welcoming. All in all a lovely evening and will definitely be heading back there again soon.

We are regulars for Sunday lunch and the food was a little disappointing...much smaller portion, virtually no veg and very few potatoes. My beef was good, the others has lamb which was chewy. Service very good.
