The Plough Shepreth
The Plough at Shepreth is no ordinary country pub. In fact, it’s extraordinarily quirky. There are the unique table decorations (fairy lights threaded into artisan gin bottles); a rustic scaffold-board bar; toilets clad in NME pages; vinyl records for table numbers; a railway departure board and record player on the bar. . . you get the idea.
Opened in its current format in 2014, having stood derelict for five years, current owners Nick and Jo Davis recognised its potential, and transformed it into a lively bar, with a reputation for good food, great live music and an exceptional offering of real ale, craft beer, gin, and cider – which all added up to The Plough being named Pub of The Year at the 2019 Cambridgeshire Business Awards.
With live music being Nick’s passion, there’s a stage inside and also one outside – on the large covered terrace which leads on to the spacious garden, with plenty of seating to comfortably and safely enjoy the regular line-up of great performers and DJs.
Gin is also a Plough favourite, with an impressive variety to discover, and cider is a big draw too, with a choice of the best blends, giving the accolade of CAMRA’s Cider Pub of the Year for three years running.
Cuisine-wise, the pub offers social dining – easy, fun dishes, created by Steve Thompson aka 'The Foraging Chef' – in a relaxed informal way. You’ll find Dirty Fries with wild hops seasoning and a unique range of interesting toppings are a signature dish; scrumptious Sunday lunches, with of course The Plough twist; Friday-Night Chip Shop, and some very naughty Dirty Doughnut desserts.
There’s so much going on, The Plough clearly lives up to its description as ‘the village pub with big ideas’.
