A perfect village, a perfect pub! The Kingham Plough is everything rolled into one – informal and relaxed country pub, award winning restaurant, and with six lovely bedrooms all kitted out for a restful and memorable Cotswold bed and breakfast stay.
The Kingham Plough sits in a great position overlooking the village green in the peaceful village of Kingham on the borders of Oxfordshire, flanked either side by Cotswold stone properties. It manages to be a friendly and comfortable place for local folk to drop in for a quick drink and bit of banter by the open fire while out walking the dog, and the place to go-to for great food inspired by owner Emily Watkins, with her partner Miles Lampson, and head chef Ben Dulley.
Bedrooms in the main building and up a few steps in the newly refurbished annexe are elegant, stylish and comfortable with everything on-hand including Roberts radios, homemade biscuits, tea from Sherston Tea Company, smart Lavazza coffee machines, a bottle of creamy organic milk from a local dairy and great bar snacks in your own fridge if feeling peckish. Large beds are seriously comfy and the ensuite bathrooms are a place to relax and indulge. Four bedrooms in the main building are particularly good if travelling with children.
One of the delights of staying in a village pub is that it’s just not far to tumble into bed after a great meal and a good bottle of something. Do book a table for an evening meal or lunch during your stay. The bar and restaurant menu changes frequently and everything is top quality and locally sourced as much as possible.
You can be forgiven a lie-in but getting up for breakfast is an absolute must. Freshly made drop scones, home-made muffins with Arlington White eggs and Kelmscott bacon, sausages from Paddock Farm, home-made baked beans, kedgeree, porridge with local honey, home-made preserves – it’s all on the breakfast menu and all made in the kitchen. All diets are all catered for, just let the friendly staff know.
