Welcome to


The Plough is a rustic-smart gastropub situated in the picturesque village of Coton, only 3 miles from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge.

Tucked away in the leafy village of Coton just outside Cambridge, you’ll find our iconic gastropub, The Plough, owned by Pasquale, known to the locals as Pascky, and his family.

With a heritage stretching back to the 18th century, The Plough Coton sits as the heart of the village, nestled amongst one acre of mature trees and a tranquil meadow. Offering a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, with both casual and formal dining areas, a large 80 seated covered terrace, a private room which can seat up to 18 guests, play area, large garden, and private meadow perfect for private events and special occasions.
