Quinno _ left this review about The Plough

In quite a pretty location near the canal, with a front garden taking advantage, here we have two different buildings mashed together to create a multi-roomer GK pub. The main bar is quite nicely done with a racing green and white interior with traditional furnishings. There's a really nice library room round to the right with a Morrells glass chair back divider. Generally, there’s a nicely worn feel which is probably explained by the licensee having been here for over 20 years. The pleasing dark varnish slatted bar with squared glass topper hosted three pumps with two on; GK OSH (utterly GK but fine) and GK H&H. Also two proper ciders. Mrs Quinno ate here and enjoyed the food. I quite liked it; a non GK ale would have pushed it higher.

The Plough is an attractive, traditional, brick built building set beautifully on the green with a garden and play area to the front which overlooks the canal and distant wooded hills. The only flaw is that the view is partially broken by the fence running alongside the railway but it's still a super spot for an alfresco sherbert on a sunny day.
Inside is all dark wood which matches the building and the lunch menu is decent value with a very acceptable fish finger sandwich proving a good choice.
The real fly in the ointment is that this is a Greene King pub with only Hardy and Hanson's Kimberly Bitter and Old Speckled Hen clips gracing the three handpumps on our visit.
Lager for me and a note to avoid the place in the future.

Two building knocked together to form an attractive exterior ,overlooking the Green with the Oxford Canal running nearby.However the Greene King signage always strike fear into me,but I persevered on the basis that it's listed in the 2018 GBG.
The two bay windows by the front door is the drinking area,with a raised section at the rear,while the room to the left is for dining.The furniture is traditional but the modern slatted blinds in the windows were unsightly.Food is well cooked pub grub style ,but food service hours are strictly observed,check website for times.
What really let the pub down was the real ale choice from the three handpumps on my visit.GK Old Speckled Hen and "Hardy & Hanson " Kimberley Bitter (well kept but a very boring brown beer) didn't inspire and the third pump was unused .It's a tied house (with all ale coming from Bury St Edmunds) and seemed functional rather than welcoming ,I will keep navigating past in future.
