SquareMeal Review of
The Plough Bar & Kitchen
South London meets the USA at the Plough – a self-styled ‘bar & kitchen’ within strolling distance of Clapham Junction. Inside, it has an airy, modernist look with a long bar, bare floors,
plate-glass windows & big sofas, plus diner-style banquettes & refectory tables for those who fancy eating. Small plates tout everything from black pudding Scotch eggs & ‘squealer pork
pie’ to popcorn shrimps, meatloaf & black bean sliders with bloody Mary sauce, but don’t miss the special ‘parrot wings’ (12 marinated chicken wings in red hot sauce served with two punchy
shots of El Jimadour Reposado). Alternatively, go for something bigger – perhaps a prime British burger with American bacon & Cornish brie or whole ‘beer can’ chicken with apple slaw, straw
fries & smoked beetroot. Booze also fosters the ‘special relationship’, with everything from Young’s Bitter to bottles of Sierra Nevada beer & some eclectic wines.
