I have called in here many times over the years as it is handy for the station. The word 'quirky' has been used more than once to describe the Plough, and I have overheard and joined in some interesting conversations! I have never eaten here...More

The Plough is a great pub with a fun atmosphere, there is a great range of ciders available and the Pieminister pie, mash & peas are the stuff of legends. The music is great, both live and DJ.

We came to the Plough after visiting friends in nearby Castle Cary. Although it was a small pub it was very cosy and the young lady behind the bar made the hubby and I most welcome. It serves food and although we didn't have any...More
