It is a great pleasure to announce that Darren Brown has joined the Kingham Plough as Head Chef.
With an extremely prestigious back ground in restaurants including The Lanseborough, Monsieur Max (working with Tom Kerridge) & West Stoke House, where he earned a Michelin star, we are extremely lucky that Darren has decided to settle in the Cotswolds bringing his talent and personality to The Kingham Plough.
Welcome to the Kingham Plough
Emily Watkins’ and Miles Lampson’s award-winning Cotswolds pub with rooms
Located in the Oxfordshire village of Kingham, near Chipping Norton, the Kingham Plough has achieved a happy balance between a ‘proper’ pub and an exceptional dining room.
Since opening in 2007, Chef Proprietor Emily Watkins and her husband Miles Lampson have followed their ethos that provenance is the key to great food and they continue to source only the best local ingredients, both for the kitchen and bar. Their success is reflected in their numerous awards. The Kingham Plough regularly features in the top 100 restaurants in the National Restaurant Awards and the Top 50 Gastropubs and have won the Oxfordshire Dining Pub of the Year in the Good Pub Guide for the third year. Emily has also appeared in BBC2′s Great British Menu, both as a winning contestant and a veteran judge for the South West Region. The Kingham Plough continues to be recommended in the Michelin and AA guides amongst many others.
In addition to the dining pub, they have six comfortable bedrooms upstairs to really make the most of your Cotswolds experience.
As a family-run pub, the Kingham Plough is both child-friendly and dog-friendly, maintaining a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that is comfortable, welcoming and inclusive. It is everything that an exceptional Cotswolds dining pub with rooms should be.
