With stunning riverside views and a large beer garden with a crackling fire pit for al fresco dining, The Plough – Fen Ditton is housed in a restored paper mill and coaching inn whose history dates back hundreds of years. With chunky wooden tables, plenty of armchairs & fireplaces, the pub is a rustic hideaway serving modern British cuisine.
Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Plough menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.
A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Plough – Fen Ditton cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.
The Plough in Fen Ditton is a 12-minute drive from Cambridge Rail Station.

Excellent early evening meal at the Plough. Weather was nice so we managed to get a table outside. Food delicious and service good.

Have been visiting this restaurant annually to coincide with University May Bumps, Extra eating area created since our last visit and very busy but staff were able to cope. Excellent service, good food. A good children's menu was available for smaller appetites. Also my husband has mobility problems but was able to bring his scooter onto outside decking area which we much appreciated.

A very disappointing meal. We have eaten here on several occasions when visiting our son who lives in Cambridge. We ordered some "nibbles" to have in advance of our starters. The starters arrived first, and when we queried this with the waitress, she returned to the kitchen, and came back to us confirming that the nibbles would be served at the same time as the starters - so these all arrived together. As soon as these were cleared our main course arrived around 30 seconds later, when we really would have appreciated a breather. We then asked if we could have our coffees in the garden area, and were told they would bring us our coffees to our current table, and we could carry them outside ourselves. This is the first time I have ever written a review of a meal - the service was so poor that I have felt motivated to do so. The food itself was acceptable, but not as good as it been on previous occasions. The waiter / waitresses definitely did not care whether or not we enjoyed our meal - has there been a change of management? Will try another venue next time we visit the area - shame as such a pretty location.

We ordered Pork roast. On the menu it says it come with cracklings, also we specifically asked the waiter if it does - which he said yes to. When the food came out, there was no crackling. When we asked again, it doesn't come with it. Then they brought us crackling but it was really cold and not edible at all.
They should have just say they dont serve it with crackling and we would have ordered something different. For the price we have paid, this should have been standard. Or change their menu accordingly.

Lovely meal (as usual) but 5 of the meals were not available and we had to wait an hour for it (despite being advised it would be half an hour) - luckily we were not in a hurry.
