The portions here are small and expensive for what you get. They raved about their rabbit pie but it's just a small pie served with a small pot of kale. They add 10% service to their already expensive prices. If you want a decent meal...More

Absolutely dead! Asked manager if he could put on the volume for the TV for World Cup game - he said no! Not another person here - why not! Terrible customer service but beautiful food. Stayed for two nights.

We had an evening meal in the restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent, using fresh ingredients and prepared and presented with care. Service was friendly and relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.More

Nice establishment,clean,professional staff but at the end of the day the food is what it matters. Unfortunately £24 for a bland,chewy steak at lunch time in a village in the middle of nowhere is not good value for money. I don't know the area so...More

To be honest, this was a bit ok-ish. Nothing you wouldn’t get in your average Sunday lunch pub. All In all all a bit of a let down, really, after reading the ace reviews.

Dear Susieb, I can confirm that dogs are accepted in the bar area and we even have pigs ears behind the bar so the dogs can enjoy a snack while you enjoy your meal! Kind regards The Kingham Plough Management Team

In 2007 Executive chef Emily Watkins and her husband, Miles Lampson, opened The Kingham Plough, a quintessential Cotswold Inn and award winning restaurant. Their aim was to create somewhere that they themselves would like to visit; excellent modern British and comfortable rooms set within a warm and relaxed environment. The food quickly gained critical acclaim and has been awarded numerous accolades including the prestigious third AA Rosette, awarded in 2015. The Kingham Plough regularly features in the UKs Top 100 Restaurants and Top 50 Gastropubs and with six beautiful, individually decorated en-suite bedrooms it is the perfect place for a Cotswold getaway.
