The Kingham Plough

Kingham Chipping Norton Oxfordshire OX7 6YD

Now in the hands of Katie and Matt Beamish, who took over in early 2019, the Kingham Plough went from being a simple village boozer to a gastronome's paradise in less than a decade. Now, we're pleased to report, it's reverted to being more of a pub than a restaurant, albeit one that serves great food and still has half a dozen boutique rooms to sink into upstairs.  Matt and Katie are foodies at heart, having worked with the likes of Raymond Blanc, Jamie Oliver and Fergus Henderson, among others, and continue to source local, seasonal ingredients for both pub classics and more adventurous dishes, which you can enjoy on an all-day bar menu or an evening-only à la carte menu. Expect flavourful modern British food with the odd Mediterranean twist alongside pub classics – cod in pancetta with summer bean cassoulet and goat's cheese and thyme ravioli sits happily alongside fish and chips and a ploughman's. They offer a decent kids' menu, and there is plenty to tempt vegetarians. Drinkers too are well catered for in a pub where plenty of people once again drop by for a pint, with local brews from nearby Hook Norton Brewery alongside lots of guest ales and a gin collection that includes a house option, WoodBros Gin, distilled in Oxford by brothers Ed and Charlie.
