Plough and Harrow
Plough and Harrow is a haven of rustic charm – think leadlight windows, ancient beams and a genuine and hearty welcome from manager Glenn Hooper and his team. The bar offers a wonderful array of wine and spirits, alongside craft ale from the award-winning Long Man Brewery, which is also tucked away in the hamlet of Litlington.
The night we visited the pub was lively, with diners enjoying the convivial atmosphere and sumptuous menu. The chalkboard offers a selection of classic starters such as pâté, prawn cocktail, Caesar salad, baked Camembert and several meze dishes. I plumped for a helping of flavoursome moules marinières, while my partner selected a delectable whitebait dish. The mains, like the starters, were a selection of trusted favourites that champion the best local produce. My companion opted for the classic ham, egg and chips, featuring local Sussex ham. I tucked into the vegan pulled mushroom and cashew nut burger, accompanied by chips so crisp and fluffy that their reputation has spread far and wide. The menu boasts an excellent selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free and dairy-free dishes, so there’s something for everyone. There were a number of tempting options for pudding, and we finished our evening happily with a delightful orange and almond polenta cake.
