Orestan Lane, Effingham, KT24 5SW

Tucked away in the pleasant village of Effingham, this idyllic country pub is the perfect place to end a long summer’s walk. You can sit inside, or settle down among the trees in the beautiful garden, surrounded by climbing roses and the fragrant scent of fresh herbs. In the summer enjoy an al fresco meal from the summer menu, and in the winter keep warm with a hearty homemade meal in front of the open fire. Everything on the menu is prepared fresh each day, with ingredients often sourced as locally as the pub’s own garden. For a little added entertainment The Plough at Effingham also host a regular series of events, from gin tastings and brewery tours, to charity barbecue fundraisers and Wednesday jazz nights. 

When we visited, the menu was bursting with mouth-watering classics given creative new twists by the innovative kitchen team. I tucked into succulent lamb medallions on a light bed of grilled baby gem lettuce, refreshingly paired with tzatziki, courgette and crushed pistachio. My companion opted for a sumptuous local sirloin steak paired with indulgent triple-cooked chips, peppercorn sauce and watercress. The well-balanced dessert menu combined British classics with creative new delights, but we especially enjoyed the exquisitely presented lime posset with zesty orange shortbread.
