Located a short way out of Winchester, The Plough in Itchen Abbas is all about quality, wholesome and classic British fare and hospitality. Doubling as both restaurant and inn, this Station Hill spot specialises in home-cooked dishes that use locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible – the meat is from Evans Butchers in Alresford and fish hails from Premier Fish in Salisbury. As for the dishes themselves, well, you’ll be in for a treat. Think beer-battered fish and chips, roast pork loin with all the trimmings and chicken, ham hock and leek pie, with mash and gravy of course. The Plough Itchen Abbas knows British food, and knows how to do it well, so whether you’re in for a weekend away or just dining out, you won’t be disappointed.
Had a really good meal on Sunday. Staff were very attentive and food arrived soon after ordering. I would highly recommend The Plough. Lovely garden with plenty of shade. Will definitely come again!
First time visit to the Plough for family lunch. Extremely helpful & pleasant staff. We all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Plenty of car parking.
