The Plowden Arms

Welcome to The Plowden Arms

Set in beautiful countryside just a few minutes’ walk from the River Thames, the award-winning Plowden Arms is a delightfully old fashioned country pub.

Step in to The Plowden Arms 
and step back in time with favourite and forgotten dishes and drinks from bygone 

The upscale food offering takes influence from centuries-old books with daily menus providing options you won't find anywhere else. Also on the menu 
is a warm welcome, complete with flickering candles, antique cutlery and vintage crockery, a blazing fire for cold nights, a beautiful garden for balmy days 
and forgotten cocktails such as Gimlets and Gin Fizz’s (best enjoyed against the 1920’s soundtrack).
