The Plough Inn, Ford
Sitting in the hamlet of Ford, this popular 16th Century Inn renowned for its excellent menu and fine Donnington ales, is ideally placed for exploration of many nearby Cotswold attractions.
The area holds everything for those who love the countryside as well a rich and diverse cultural and sporting heritage. Shooting lunches are organised at the Plough and there are fine walks, cycling, fishing and golf in close proximity. The nearby historic towns and villages (Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Tewkesbury to name but a few) present a variety of museums, antique craft shops and visitor attractions guaranteed to provide an absorbing visit.
For racing enthusiasts the area is also steeped in connections with the famous racing stables of Jackdaws Castle right opposite and other notable establishments nearby, all of course a short distance from Cheltenham, the "blue riband" home, of National Hunt racing.
Racegoers like it so much, in fact, The Plough was voted Channel 4 Racing Pub of the Year 2013.
