The Plough is located in Fen Ditton, a small village to the north east of Cambridge, just outside the city boundary.

We’re accessible by road, rail, and foot. For drivers, Fenn Ditton is located on the road that runs from Cambridge to Clayhithe, and close to junction 34 of the A14. If you’re travelling by rail, the nearest stations are Cambridge and Waterbeach.

Fen Ditton is perhaps best known for The Bumps – the annual rowing races held on the river Cam each year. And, set right next to the river, The Plough offers front row seats. So grab your friends and a glass of Pimm’s and enjoy the excitement of the races from our beautiful beer garden.

Join us and enjoy our magnificent interiors and a fabulous outdoor dining space that’s perfect for alfresco dining.
