The Plowden Arms

Welcome to The Plowden Arms

Set in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside
on the main road between Henley on
Thames and Reading, just a few minutes walk from the River Thames, The Plowden Arms is a delightfully old traditional country pub.
Providing relaxing surroundings for all seasons, we have a cosy bar area complete with a real log fire as well as a function space which opens on to our large beer garden.
We're unashamedly old fashioned; our food menu focusses on high quality, favourite and forgotten dishes from bygone eras with daily specials, whilst on the bar you'll find traditional ales, a carefully considered wine list and a monthly changing forgotten drink such as dandelion and burdock or gin fizz.
We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

I love the 1920's feel to the place...I visit the the Plowden Arms whenever I'm in the area.
