Boasting arguably one of the best beer gardens in Cambridgeshire, The Plough is located in the picturesque village of Fen Ditton. The large garden backs onto the River Cam, and on the day of the Bumps (the highly charged boat race between the Cambridge colleges which takes place in June) provides the perfect viewing point.

Finding ourselves cycling across the Fens on a chilly October night, we were certainly glad to see the welcoming lights of the pub up ahead. To warm the cockles while our starters were prepared, we chose a bottle of Chilean pinot noir - a soft red with notes of red berries and cinnamon. Soon enough, we were served our house tasting platter - a mammoth feast including paté, cheese and meat to name but a few components. It's lucky I managed to save room for my delicately spiced lamb shoulder that followed, as it was the highlight of the evening. The king prawns were also delicious, sautéed in chilli and garlic and served with warm ciabatta. For dessert, the peach Melba Knickerbocker Glory really hit the spot.

To work up an appetite, take one of the city's scenic walks following the river across Cambridge's commons. When you reach the end of Stourbridge Common, follow the signs to Fen Ditton to enjoy a well-earned feast at this excellent pub.
