An attractive looking building in the leafy side streets bordering Sheen and Mortlake, it is very affluent around here and the pub ethos clearly shows this. Obviously foody, thankfully I timed my visit outside of full on eating times but I still didn't feel all that comfortable inside so repaired to the splendid sun trap garden which wraps around both frontages of this corner site. Roses are trained along a terrace and the area is finished with a white picket fence.
Inside felt a bit sterile, a J-shaped interior with a tiny intimate booth or snug area at one end. Not much to look at, a stuffed deer head, deer photos and a few books on a shelf. A Tv showed Wimbledon to nobody.
Four handpumps, one clipped with London Pride. I asked the young barman twice if there was anything else on but received no response whatsoever, not even an acknowledgement of my question. So I had the Pride, expensive and about passable.
Not on my revisit list.

An attractive exterior in a very upmarket area,this gastro pub is virtually a restaurant these days with little pub atmosphere.The internal area is L shaped ,the furniture traditional pub items but diners compete for any free tables at busy times,there is even a small overflow room on the first floor ,if you dont want to wait for a table to come free while pertching on a bar stool.The menu is not ridiculously pricey ,and there is a long daily specials list ,but mains will generally come in around the £15 mark,some smaller dishes will be cheaper.Although there are a number of handpumps ,only London Pride was available,in decent nick.I suppose in good weather you could always just drink in the pub garden ,or aim to get here outside main food service hours .I would use it again as a restaurant,but not if I just wanted to slake my thirst.

The Plough is more pubby than close rival The Victoria, but they still lean towards gastro, rather than the more traditional pub that it was several years ago. Usually 3 real ales on (eg Pride, Landlord, Harveys Best) and quality is OK. Bare boards/tables inside and good large garden area at the front. Useful as an end point following a stroll in Richmond Park.
