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.

    My main course could only be described as being average. However, my friend had a miserable main course of an over cooked and very dry burger. Bearing in mind this was described as "rare" that is not good. Ambience was good.

    our first visit to the Plough despite living locally for 24 years. We had American visitors and it was hard to find places open to eat on a Monday evening. Food was excellent and the venue will now join our list of places to eat at again

    I ordered the pea soup which tasted of fresh home grown peas lovely followed by the belly pork - just wonderful so tender. Desert the carrot cake, one of my favorites, just the right amount not too filling and tasted delicious.
