About The Plough, Kelmscott

The Plough is a pretty 17th-century inn tucked away down single-track roads in the peaceful and truly unspoilt village of Kelmscott – not far from an idyllic stretch of the Thames Path. And a brief stroll away is Kelmscott Manor, former home of William Morris – English textile designer, poet, social activist and novelist.


The Plough showcases the best locally sourced, seasonal produce on our daily-changing menu of modern British comfort cooking available in two dining rooms – a restaurant seating 40 guests and a Hideaway seating 15 guests. The Hideaway is also available for private parties of 8 or more. The Plough is host to a cosy bar – with authentic pommel horse seating and log-burning stove – available on a first-come basis. Outside, our delightful, cottage-style garden is perfect for summer dining and drinks – the log fires in the restaurant and bar roar in the winter months.


The Plough is very much a village pub that welcomes everyone. It promotes and sells local beers, including craft ales, bottled beers and ciders. It also carefully sources locally crafted soft drinks made using Cotswolds produce, as well as seasonal cocktails. The wine list includes some heavy duty French classics, served by the glass, carafe and bottle and up to a magnum. Dogs are welcomed at the bar.


There are seven, warm and inviting double bedrooms and one single room with great kingsize beds, luxurious walk-in showers or a bath, and a charming Cotswold feel. A continental breakfast or cooked breakfast is provided with your room, so don your boots and walk a section of the Thames Path.

Please note there is some ground works taking place during the winter of 2018 & 2019, so the Garden will be unavailable at some points.
