Description: Congratulations! You’ve won the chance to visit us and have a great time, well done you! We’re a village pub in the big city (well, town), with even bigger plans for world domination. The Plough is the perfect place to meet friends, family or supervillains, as we treat you to a no-holds-barred festival of food and drink. Facilities Our toilets are dead good! If that’s not enough, there’s also a great garden that runs right down to the Grand Union Canal, and it’s a great place to eat during the brief interludes between rainshowers and downpours the British weather permits us. We even do barbecues! Inside is where we keep things like our excellent restaurant, the comfortable & relaxing snug, and the all-important bar. The toilets are inside too, don’t worry. Free wifi is available throughout, and we have free parking, but please use the spaces behind the pub instead of bringing the car in with you. We’re dog-friendly (we prefer them to humans), child-friendly, and childish. Please note any unattended child will be given caffeine and a puppy. Our staff aren’t always sarcastic; sometimes they’re asleep. Our mums love us though. We have absolutely no uranium enrichment facilities. Apologies for any inconvenience. Restaurant We’re pretty proud of our restaurant. Whether you’re with friends or colleagues, looking for a hearty meal with the family, or after a dinner for two, we’ve got you covered. Once you’ve finished admiring the decor, we’ll seat you at a table and discreetly bicker over the chance to serve you. We’ve got a great selection of wines, beers and spirits, and we’ve even heard of nonalcoholic drinks too. Our chefs specialise in unpretentious food that makes the most of quality, fresh produce. We like to prepare imaginative dishes done properly, so our menu stays interesting and enticing. No, honestly, you’ll want to eat our stuff again and again! We cater to most dietary requirements and preferences (and fussiness), including an actual variety of vegetarian choices. We love having families with kids over for tea too, no worries. If you’ve still got room after dinner, we’ve got a wonderful selection of desserts, and we do a mean cup of coffee or hot chocolate, barista style. When the weather’s kinder to all of us, you can dine out in our al fresco area, as well as in our canal-side garden. Our restaurant can be booked for private functions; ring us and ask! We’re dog-friendly (we prefer them to humans), child-friendly, and childish. Please note any unattended child will be given caffeine and a puppy.

“Hosting a celebration.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

My wife and I hosted a 40th wedding anniversary here and on behalf of my wife, kids and myself we want to say thank you again for all the outstanding food and beverage service they supplied. My family and friends were really impressed. Their efforts were really well received, helpinmg to make the evening a roaring success and a night to remember for a long time to come.
The pub/restaurant industry is a tough market-place & maintaining an edge and keeping standards high is very difficult. They excel in every aspect & are doing a terrific job!!
We wish them continued success for the future.
Gary & Jayen Scriven.

“Excellent service lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Antonio and his team were extremely helpful in arranging some food after my father in law's funeral. The food was lovely, service excellent and the sun was shining. Lovely setting in the al fresco area and made to feel extremely welcome. Everyone commented how nice it was and that the buffet was really good. Thanks

“Very good experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

A large group visited this pub and we were not left disappointed. Everyone was pleased with the quality and range of the food. Despite the large group, the food arrived together and was hot. Good size portions and an unpretentious, but tasty menu.

The service was friendly and efficient. A welcome change from all the chain restaurants in Milton Keynes. Would definitely recommend giving it a go.

“Value for money average, service poor.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

From the outside it seems a warm and welcoming village pub. When we walked in it felt like we were in the Wild West. The Barman wasn't very friendly and could do with a course in hospitality. I have been here a few times now and experienced similar service. Needless to say I will take my custom else where.
