Nestled in the small village of Appleton, less than 6 miles outside of Oxford, lies a quaint country pub with a difference. The Plough Inn has a traditional, welcoming frontage, but what hides behind is a contemporary meets cosy interior, with a restaurant that boasts an impressive menu of fresh meat and fish, all sourced from local suppliers.
On arrival we were greeted warmly at the bar, which was laden with an impressive array of ales, lagers and wine, from which we chose a fruity Tempranillo. We were immediately made to feel right home and were seated by the window with a lovely view out into the beer garden. Looking through the menu, from the halloumi cheese kebabs for the vegetarians to succulent scallops or the rack of lamb, it was hard not to try everything!
Everything was delicious, and certainly filling which left very little room for dessert, but a quick look through the delectable pudding selection meant they were too hard to resist! After lots of deliberation we plumped for the classic, sticky toffee pudding, and we certainly weren’t disappointed; it was gooey deliciousness topped off perfectly with a blob of vanilla ice cream, and we polished off the lot!
