The Plough Inn, Ashford

The Plough Inn

The Plough is a historic pub in the large village of Brabourne Lees in the middle of the Kent countryside. Just off the A20 between Ashford and Folkestone, the pub makes a great stop when travelling to and from the Channel Tunnel.

Built in 1750, one of The Plough’s former incarnations was as an officers’ mess in the Napoleonic wars. It has retained its historic charm with numerous oak beams, inviting inglenook fireplace and a relaxed decor.

 

The large beer garden enjoys beautiful countryside views, with a play area for the children. Regular barbecues are held in the summer.

The excellent restaurant serves traditional home-cooked meals. The restaurant and pub is open all day from 12:00 and there is a lunchtime menu and an extensive evening menu, plus tempting desserts.
