I contacted the Old Plow Restaurant in January to discuss arranging a birthday lunch for my husband. From the initial planning stage through to the meal on Sunday, nothing was too much problem. Our 14 guests were all made to feel very welcome and served...More

The Old Plow had been highly recommended but like many things in life, high expectations are often followed by disappointment. We had three mains and two puds, one glass of wine and a couple of soft drinks and the bill was knocking on for £100....More

I lunched here with a friend recently and simply cannot fault it. It is I believe, an old coaching inn, full of character and with delightful hosts who gave us a friendly welcome and an excellent lunch. The cost was probably slightly above average for...More

Description
The delightful restaurant at The Old Plow is situated in a charming 17th century inn in the picturesque Chiltern Hills, thirty minutes from Oxford. The dining room ��� with its oak beams, log fire and crisp linens - is a favourite with local celebs, and over its 400 year history the restaurant has hosted the likes of Jeremy Irons, Jay Kay and even Charles II. The Old Plow's unfussy eclectic, modern menu has an emphasis on fresh seafood and classic French sauces. We love the salt and pepper chilli Devon squid with balsamic glaze and rocket leaves; the roast Cornish rump of lamb with apricot and mint chutney; and the seared scallops and bacon with lemon butter sauce. With bucket-loads of authentic charm and a superb French wine list ��� The Old Plow provides a memorable location for business lunches, evening meals and private parties.
