The Plough is situated just outside of Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire and has the benefit of being in a quiet rural location away from the town.
Although popular and busy, The Plough is a quiet country public house and is highly regarded for its no nonsense fare, of good honest food, plenty of it and at sensible prices.
The Plough is nestled in a little valley just beside The Ridgeway ancient trackway and is the only public house that is actually beside this popular tourist trail.
Often described as Britain’s oldest road, The Ridgeway meets and forms a part of the Icknield Way which extends from Salisbury Plain all the way to East Anglia.
Formerly a staging post for London coaches and dating back to the 16th Century, The Plough is actually one of the oldest pubs in the Chilterns.
It is said that in 1643 a wake was held here for John Hampden by his beloved Greencoats, whilst escorting his body back to the family home at Great Hampden from Thame, where he had died following the Battle of Chalgrove.
Six members of our family enjoyed another wonderful meal at The Plough. I would not miss coming here when I visit family. As usual the service and food were outstanding. I had Welsh lamb and it was very well cooked and tasty. Thank you Steve and staff for carrying on high standards in a special British pub.

I stayed at The Plough again this week and I very much enjoyed the friendly welcome. Comfortable accommodation and comfort food too. The slow cooked pork belly was delicious thank you.
A great “bolt hole” with uncomplicated, good food, beer and wine. My thanks to Steve, Sharon and staff.

Had been recommended by a friend and we weren’t disappointed. Good menu and included gluten-free options (necessary for my wife). Staff were attentative and were happy to check ingredients etc with chef. Lovely country pub/restaurant and looking forward to going back.
