The Plough at Ford logo


It's always nice to be recognised for what you do.

So we were especially delighted when we were voted the best Cotswold pub at The Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards, one of the biggest events in the local calendar and hugely anticipated by the region’s food and drink industry all year round. It is considered to be the Oscars of the Cotswold food world. We were initially just delighted to hear that we had been shortlisted from three other highly rated pubs but to go on to win was amazing!

Cotswold Life Food & Drink champion the best local producers, suppliers and businesses that are passionate about the Cotswold countryside and the future of our local environment.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and the well-respected judges, The Plough Inn at Ford was awarded with the highly acclaimed ‘Best Cotswold Pub Award’ we have always been proud of supporting local suppliers for the pub and we will continue to do so so as to provide top quality food and drink for our customers, as well as a warm welcome and great service.

Cotswold Life said “Judges were impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm for local products at The Plough Inn. It was clear that local is what the pub is all about. Judges noted fantastic and efficient dining making a very pleasurable experience.”

We would like to thank all of our customers that voted for us.

The Plough was also voted Racing Pub of the Year in 2008 & Channel 4 Racing Pub of the Year in 2013.
