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.

Fish had salt on it, much better if this was optional.
Desert was ok, but not great for the price.

Myself and a friend went for Sunday lunch and couldn’t fault the food or the service, it was all lovely. My friend is a veggie and had phoned up in advance to see if she could have a roast still but a veggie version, they were very kind and made her a veggie roast separate to what was on the menu. All waiters were smiley and food delicious. Well recommended.

Tasty meals at reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient service with a special mention here to Gabi, our kind and friendly waitress.

The meal and wine were very good. I had such which was well cooked but a little too pink for me. The addition bits and pieces look good but was small in amount (but I am not suggesting bigger portions) , was a bit too nouvelle cuisine; a bit more substance would have been welcome

Lovely staff. Good food and lovely location.i had the the goganzola,pear and smoked duck salad.it 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
