The Plough at Cadsden

In the Heart of the Beautiful Chiltern Hills

The Pub of Prime Ministers

The Plough is probably the most famous Pub in England, situated just outside of Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire near Chequers, the country seat of British Prime Ministers.

Although Cadsden is just a tiny hamlet with few residents, The Plough is very popular with visitors from all over the world and is highly regarded for its no nonsense fare, of good honest food, plenty of it and at sensible prices.

Nestled in the Heart of The Chilterns

Delightful Location

The Plough is the only pub that actually stands on The Ridgeway, an ancient trackway described as Britain’s oldest road.

The Ridgeway actually passes right outside our front door, causing the pub to be a prominent stopping point for ramblers and walkers walking between Wendover and Princes Risborough.
