Great local pub with friendly service. Good quality, well priced, varied food. I was a big fan of previous management, but have to admit - the new team is even better!

Fabulous food one of the next meals we have had. Excellent table just as requested ideal position for two small dogs well out of the way The only thing to comment on less positively was Service. It took a long time for each course to arrive, perhaps excusable for main course as it was beautifully cooked to order but not desert said he made a mistake with the desert course order.

Although exceptionally busy, the welcome was super friendly. We were shown to our table by the landlord and immediately offered drinks by the excellent Kiwi waitress. Her service was exceptional, as was the food on the whole. My calves’ liver was melt in the mouth, my partner’s steak was very good but lacked flavour. Food was washed down with an enjoyable, inexpensive Malbec. After a our foodie weekend in the Cotswolds, hands down this was the best place we ate.

Quirky little pub with beautiful interior. We were the only ones for lunch as we arrived just before midday. Battered fish & chips were delicious, would have preferred peas instead of mushed peas. We starters were very good & we shared a chocolate gateau which was so good.

We loved the food at the Kingham Plough - the most delicious duck. The setting is charming and you are in one of the nicest place in the Cotswolds. Enjoy it!

The food was superb. The staff were friendly, but could do with training - things like not reaching across diners to place glasses or plates, always looking round the room to make sure there is no-one trying to attract a member of staff's attention, more professional and less casual, etc. We had to wait for our drinks and chase them up on 2 occasions .. You deserve to do well, but this lets you down at the moment.

The new owner has challenges with new teams in both back and front of house. The staff however are enthusiastic and with support and training, the Plough could easily return to its former glories.

The best fish and chips in a gourmet restaurant in a long time. Service was also pretty good (the new owner introduced himself) though some of it was a little inexperienced. The worst feature was the atmosphere - a large table nearby with a big family arrived half way through our meal. Several of the children were crawling / playing on the floor. No problem with children, especially as it was a weekend, but there needs to be some order and control. Next time we'll eat in the bar during a weekend as we don;t want to miss the excellent food.
