The belly pork was fabulous as was the panna cotta. Staff, as ever, engaging and professional.

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.

    Second visit to Cambridge and the plough. Very happy with the meals. I would really recommend the pork belly. Good range of bitters and larger selection. Outside eating areas are heated. Booking service

    Although very busy, didn’t have to wait long at all, as usual great food.

    Beautiful food. The starters particularly are brilliantly designed and exceptionally tasty - wonderful flavour combinations. Main courses seem to be traditional pub food, but are also very good. Service friendly, efficient and a real pleasure.

    Thoughtfully prepared dishes, nicely presented with accessible, locally farmed ingredients. Updated pub with charming service. A nice walk from Rectory Farm!

    Really friendly staff & great food

  • ((((( 29 June 2018 by Diane from Birmingham

    short walking distance from Rectory Farm Hotel made the plough an ideal choice. We ate from the Sunday menu. There isn't a vast choice within each section but we had looked at the menu online so knew what to expect. I chose mackerel followed by the vegetarian option and my husband had the pork terrine followed by lamb rump both the starters and the mains were cooked and presented wonderfully. The staff are friendly and attentive without intruding, the table cloths on the terrace are a lovely bonus.
