About The Plough Coton
The rustic Coton gastropub brings together fine dining with traditional pub fare, all at an affordable price. Found in a quaint village not far from Cambridge, this family-friendly restaurant has an outside terrace overlooking a garden where children and dogs can play. See quintessential countryside accents of wood with the flooring, chairs, bar and exposed roof beams making a feature. The homely cream coloured walls which are decorated in animal skulls, horns and woven baskets add to the warm village atmosphere. Get comfy and curl up beside a cosy fireplace or on the leather-clad benches lining the walls.
You can visit The Plough for lunch or dinner seven days a week. The menu is filled with locally sourced produce and has seasonal ingredients. Each dish is specifically created to make fine dining more accessible and plated with care to give off a gourmet feel.
Start your culinary journey with a luxury seared scallop dish, plated with crushed peas, pancetta and cumin foam or for a vegetarian starter option, bite into a broad bean and pea ‘scotch egg’. Tuck into some quintessential gastropub dishes from beer battered fish & chips, bream or hake to a tender rib eye steak or even enjoy sharing one of the platters. The Plough’s pan-fried hake fillet is a great choice and is served with courgette done three ways and a dash of crab cream. Additionally, the pan-seared duck breast, which comes with charred baby gem squash, roasted fig, pickled beetroot, and pressed potato, is fan favourite. Finish your meal with a bowl of strawberries, cream and granola for a uniquely British experience.
The Plough has a wide range of gluten-free options and some vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, making this small town pit stop a must for those with dietary requirements. The restaurant also has an enticing Sunday roast menu featuring beef, leg of lamb, pork and little roasts for children. The entire space is available for hire and has a private area, the Grain Store, which can be booked for events.
