The Plough and Harrow is a great Family Local Pub. Come and enjoy our new and stunning full menu served till 2.30 every day. We have plenty of seating, and will do our best to make your lunch a fantastic experience. Check our Specials board, or enjoy our fantastic O.A.P deal. At the Plough, we have 3 LARGE screen televisions, and 2 SkyHD box's. So what ever sporting occasion, either SkySports or BTSports, we will do our best to accommodate. Every Saturday, we have live music. Bands come from across the country to play at the Plough. In the summer enjoy a beer or glass of wine in our large beer garden, and let your kids play in our fantastic children's play area. Most weekends we also provide the kids with a bouncy castle. With a nearly finished function room, we can cater for all occasions. Get in touch today to book. We hope to see you soon.

Warmly welcome, perfect lambshank. The mint and rosemary gravy was out of this world, the most perfect since 2014.

Found this pub while visiting family in Harpenden. Great meals on offer at great prices. It's one of those corner pubs that you find so many of these days, but the service, atmosphere and food in this one were supurb. Would definitely return.

I have visited occasionally when on my own for quick lunch. It has had a pleasing ambientce when I have been there and typical 'pub fare' on the menu at reasonable prices.
