The Plough at Cadsden

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

Comfortable Dining

Few pubs in England can boast that they have served so many of the country’s Prime Ministers and foreign Presidents.

Our proximity to the country seat at Chequers and the secluded nature of the pub, has meant that it has generally been the venue of choice for many of our nation’s leaders.

Exceptional Rooms

We pride ourselves on having some of the nicest bed and breakfast accommodation in the area. Each of our rooms is beautifully styled for you to enjoy a comfortable nights sleep.

Really good accommodation is not that easy to secure locally, our rooms are well presented, yet at very comparable room rates!

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.
