See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Closed for several years, and saved from conversion to residential use, the pub was reopened in July 2014, after extensive renovation and modification. A large L-shaped bar faces the entrance with a drinking area to the right themed on the Spitfire (the pub was popular with wartime pilots based at nearby RAF Duxford). To the left is a larger area of seating, where the music theme of the pub begins with images of old vinyl, a theme continued in the toilets, which are decorated with a montage of concert and record release promotional posters. Doors on this side lead through to a spacious patio and the garden beyond. Upstairs has a function room also used as an art gallery, with exhibitions changing monthly. Up to 4 cask beers, primarily sourced from small local or regional breweries. Five craft keg beers on tap. It offers a range ciders including real cider. Frequent live music nights. Having been closed for over two years the Plough reopened in May 2023. "Boxed Events" run the kitchen on Friday and Sunday, children's portions available, with food vans on Thursday and Saturday. Cambridge & District CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2018, 2019 & 2020.
