Home of the Grand National Winner 'Don't push it' 2010 Voted 'Racing pub of the year' 2008

Sitting in the hamlet of Ford, this popular 16th Century Inn, renowned for its excellent menu and fine Donnington ales, is ideally placed for exploration of many nearby Cotswold attractions. The Plough Inn has three warm comfortable double rooms, and can accomodate up to four people. There are superb views of the gallops from the rooms. The area holds everything for appreciators of the countryside as well a rich and diverse cultural and sporting heritage.

Racing enthusiasts: The area is also steeped in connections with the famous racing stables of Jackdaws Castle right opposite and other notable establishments nearby, all of course a short distance from Cheltenham, the "blue riband" home, of National Hunt racing. The B & B rooms overlook the beautiful gallops of Jonjo O'Neil's training yard.

On Grand National day, April 2009, Craig Brown - landlord of The Plough Inn came second in the John Smith's Peoples Race. After months of fitness and riding training, this was an excellent result. For Craig it was a once in a lifetime experience that he will never forget.
