A Traditional Country Pub

Starters Mains Desserts

Traditional Inn

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.

Warm Welcome

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!


“Just had a fantastic meal at The Plough and how nice to see so many children with mums and dads enjoying an End of Year party in the garden. The baked Camembert was delicious but the trout with new potatoes and the homemade beef burger with chips was fantastic - we'll be back. Very enjoyable, thank you”

“We enjoyed a two course lunch whilst sat in the sunshine of this friendly village pub. The food was delicious, with a good selection of offering on the menu. There was a nice selection of beer on tap. Outside seating was vast and the pub garden welcoming. On the whole a very pleasant experience and we look forward to our next visit.”

“A pretty building amongst the trees, an old fashioned pub where you sit and feel at home straight away. Comes with a pleasant smile as a greeting. A good place to enjoy chatting with a friend over a good lunch, and the selection of beers are amazing too.”

“The Plough Appleton has to be the best pub Sunday roast I have tasted in a very long time, absolutely delicious every mouthful. If you haven't tried their roasts and don't fancy cooking you must go and try it.”
