Blackthorn _ left this review about The Plough

A pub that appears to be a modern addition to Stony Stratford in contrast with the town’s other historic hostelries, although it does have a traditional and attractive stone built appearance. Inside it’s a little disappointing unless you’re after a sports bar.

The main bar area is a good size with a high ceiling, and a few wooden beams that are presumably decorative but bizarrely have been painted the same colour as the ceiling so that you can hardly see them. Paintwork elsewhere is a mix of cream, maroon and a rather vibrant turquoise, and there are several large pictures above the bar. To the right is a raised area with some wood railings and a few tables and chairs. The bar off to the left is an odd mix, with a stone built chimney obscured by a plasma, a dart board at one end but pictures on the wall of farm animals showing the various cuts of meat like you get in some restaurants. It seemed an odd combination to me.

Televised sport obviously features prominently, and with a total of five screens in the pub showing a combination of football matches, it was hard to escape if you weren’t interested. The landlord seemed to spend most of his time wandering around with a remote control rather than serving the punters (although to be fair there were other bar staff to do that). Some of the punters seemed to be rather too keen on swearing, and unsurprisingly the pub was very male dominated.

Beers on tap were just Bombardier and Eagle. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.
