Craft Fair Report, Wine-Tasting, and more Music…


Today is the first day of December, and the Winter Events Calendar is well and truly underway at The Plough! The season kicked off on Saturday, with our Christmas Craft Fair and German Street Food Market, referred to (mainly by us) as “Kraftwerk” for short.

Our newly opened upstairs rooms were taken over DSC_2617for the day by local stallholders selling home-made cards, decorations and gifts, whilst our (not entirely German) chefs plied fair-goers with tasty Bratwurst and warming Glühwein on the terrace. With the weather taking a decidedly chilly turn, we thought it would be wise to continue serving Glühwein – now available over the bar – for the rest of the month.

We’d like to thank everyone who came along and helped out running the stalls, and of course, all of you who came to partake!

Plough in a BoxThe remaining items from our own “Plough-in-a-Box” stall are now available to purchase and take home with you from the bar. From wine boxes and bottled ales, to jars of Plough chutney and packs of luxury Plough truffles, we’ve got your Christmas shopping covered (you can view the full product list here).

Next up at The Plough is an event that we’ve been meaning to bring to you for some time: a public “Taste the List” wine-tasting. Join us at 7.30pm on Tuesday 9th December, when for £10 per person you can taste every red, white, and rosé wine in our comprehensive collection alongside some complimentary cured meats and cheeses from our “Build-A-Board” menu section. Guests will also benefit from 20% off for all takeaway wine bottles, whilst our good friend Alex from Cambridge Wine Merchants will be on hand to JHBanswer any questions relating to the wines, or indeed, life in general.

Before then, we have more live music coming up this Thursday 4th December, when local group The Rain Men will be gracing our stage from 8pm onwards. Attendees will be able to try this week’s new guest ale, which comes all the way from Peterborough: Oakham Ales’ light and hoppy bitter, JHB.

And don’t forget that you can still book your Christmas party with family or friends at The Plough, with our Christmas Menu available all the way up to Christmas eve. Booking forms can be found by following this link, whilst you can view the full range of delicious menu options right here. Life is full of tough decisions…
