The Kingham ploughs on

Kingham Plough

Kingham Plough


Promotional feature: Over the last thirty years, the distinctive culture of a traditional old village boozer being the social centre for village communities has been changing. In more recent years, many country pubs have either shut down or been converted into swanky dining establishments, rather than a place for convivial drinking.

The Kingham Plough however, seems to have found the perfect balance.

The Kingham Plough appeals to both regulars who just fancy a pint of locally brewed ale with a homemade pie, and those who travel far and wide to sample some of its award winning gastronomic delights.

For a dining pub with an ever increasing and impressive collection of awards and accolades, the a-la-carte menu often plays the starring role, appealing to those in favour of a more fine dining experience. However, the pub’s extensive bar snacks menu should not be overlooked, as it too offers an equally delicious, interesting and varied selection of dishes using fresh local produce.

Particular favourites are the scotched quails’ egg, well aged homemade beef burger with triple cooked wedges, salt cod brandade with tartar sauce and their best-selling hand-raised pork pie with ploughman’s pickle. They even go as far as making their own salami and cured meats. For those with a sweet tooth, their selection of award-winning homemade ice-creams using locally grown seasonal fruits and Nell’s Dairy milk are a huge hit with both grown-ups and children.

Since opening the pub seven years ago, chef proprietor Emily Watkins and her husband Miles Lampson have focused on upholding traditional values, exceptional service and fine attention to detail, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This winning combination is reflected in everything they do, which is why their family run pub has such a loyal following of regulars and locals.

So whether you’re a local looking for the gastronomic holy grail, a delicious and wholesome bar snack (or two!), or just a soothing local ale to help you unwind after a long day, the Kingham Plough has it all.
