London - The Plough Pork Belly001

On a recent trip to London I had the good fortune to eat at The Plough, a gastro-pub situated close to my friends house in East Sheen, not far from Richmond Park. This classic British pub is a favourite with my friend, she’s eaten there many times and  booking is definitely recommended. Alongside the food the pub boasts a good selection of beers and a decent wine list. The Inn itself is welcoming, with a warm and comfortable seating area and on a nice sunny day I suspect you would be very lucky to snare a seat in the large beer garden.

London - The Plough Pear tart001

On the night we ate there, a busy Friday night in May, there was barely a free seat. The menu was excellent making it difficult to decide what to choose. We opted to have a main and dessert as from experience my friend knew the portions to be generous. Our mains arrived piping hot and beautifully plated. My friend ordered a very tasty looking steak pie whilst I ordered the delicious main of perfectly cooked slow roasted pork belly with colcannon and chorizo gravy. The pork belly was cooked to perfection, it fell apart and the chorizo gravy packed lots of flavour. Our desserts were both tasty, a chocolate fudge sundae and a pear and almond tart.  Service was friendly and well informed, the waitress helping me decide upon my main, I like when staff are helpful, understand the menu and have an opinion.

The Plough is pub food done really well and I cannot recommend it enough if you happen to be in the area.
