About The Plough

Blessed with some of the best riverside views in Cambridge, The Plough is a family-friendly pub & restaurant in the pretty village of Fen Ditton, famous for serving up a fine array of cask ales, wines and tasty, freshly cooked food.

An Idyllic Cambridgeshire local

Our brilliant beer garden, complete with a crackling fire-pit, stretches down to the Cam and is a perfect spot for watching the 'bumps' boat races with some pals and a jug of Pimm's. As a former paper mill and then coaching inn, The Plough has been at the heart of village life for hundreds of years and we're proud of the history, character and charm residing within its walls.
