Good food and good outside dining
22 September 2019
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.

Great food, great service - a real treat.

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.

Hot humid lunch time, so we chose to eat inside which was quite and cool. A simple lunch, we both chose smoked and pickled fish platter, which came with tasty bread and good tartare and dill sauces. Good summer choice. Then mango sorbet. Well flavoured. Good service. Just what we wanted to accompany a long relaxed conversation.

Have been many times & normally good with excellent service. Sadly this visit, food not so good - badly presented and not quite as menu stated. Service not good - plates removed whilst some still eating....

The food was really excellent, a very great improvement over what it had been several weeks ago.

Incredibly tasty, unfussy service, safe outdoor for children, ample parking. Just perfect.

Warm welcome from the staff and comfortable relaxed atmosphere in the dining room. Despite two parties happening outside our service was not affected. We enjoyed our best Sunday lunch for some time. Brilliant presentation and perfect portion size. Will definitely be going back ??
