The Plough Inn, Cold Aston

Last weekend we were very kindly invited to The Plough Inn for a meal in the Cotswold village of Cold Aston. The village is beautiful, somewhere I’ve not visited before with Cotswold stone cottages. Upon arrival we felt so welcomed by the staff, I’d definitely recommend booking as it was full of people enjoying a sunday lunch out [It’s always a good sign when a restaurant is full, they must be doing something right!]


Dotted around the pub were a few dog beds which Wilma headed straight towards, there was also a cosy fireplace with armchairs that would be perfect to relax in after a long walk.


To start we had Mutton Scrumpet with harissa ketchup, which I think is up there in my top 5 starters ever! It was so delicious. As well as Smoked Mustard & whisky cured Salmon with spring onion.


They have biscuits behind the bar which were offered to the dogs, and they quite happily slept at our feet. Being a Sunday afternoon we just had to go for a Roast, one Beef and one Pork. Which came with Cauliflower cheese and Cabbage on the side. [My best friend is a Food Photographer so I apologise to her for these photos, but I felt like i’d get some funny looks if I stood on my chair for the perfect flat lay!]. 


The Plough Inn also has dog friendly accommodation for you and one dog, an excellent central location for you to travel around the Cotswolds exploring towns and villages, Bourton-on-the-water is only down the road. Plus their breakfasts sound amazing and would be a great start to the day! We shared our meal on Instagram stories when we visited and it turns out Wilma’s littermate Mabel stayed here last year when they came to the Cotswolds, and it definitely gets approval from both sisters.

This meal was gifted by The Plough Inn, all opinions are my own.

    That sounds super lovely and very tasty indeed. At least you had food to photograph, do you ever find that you’ve almost finished the meal when you remember you were supposed to take a picture?
    We’ve still got the Cotswolds on our list of places to go so thank you for saving mum the trouble of writing a list.. all she has to do is remember to check your blog when we eventually get round to visiting!


    1. Haha all the time! They just look so tasty and suddenly I’ve finished it before remembering to take a photo. Looking forward to hearing about your visit one day.
