Cosy "typical" English gastro pub serving a good choice of traditional and some inventive dishes, nicely presented with charming service.

Yes, dogs welcome outside, and in bar area(where you can eat as well) but maybe not in actual restaurant part inside. Staff like dogs very much, actually!

Founded by four friends from Surrey, we are passionate about creating exceptional dishes and cocktails with British produce and serving the best of British wine and ale in a relaxed environment where you feel at home. The Plough Inn forms the culmination of much dreaming to bring something special to our local area with a team from some of London's top venues including Head Chef John Sparks from Mayfair's Dunhill Club and General Manager Axel Murrle to bring a fresh new pub to Surrey. We look forward to welcoming you.
