The Plough Bolnhurst Review

The Plough Bolnhurst Review

The Plough Bolnhurst is the epitome of a cosy English pub. Think open fire, wooden tables and really good quality, well cooked, seasonal food.  You will find the Plough, a beautiful Tudor building, tucked away in the Bedfordshire countryside. I had the pleasure of eating here with a friend just before the country locked down.

The Plough Bolnhurst

We start with some freshly baked sourdough bread. As a huge fan of bread (read our other reviews and see!), I was delighted to see that we could buy a loaf from the pub shop to take home with us. I did of course! 

The menu:

The menus are of a minimum of 2 courses. You can choose between The Seam (£25 for 2 courses or £30 for 3), or the Furrow (£35 for 2 courses or £42 for 3). Do check the website for serving times and days. There is also an additional menu offering steaks and extras. We chose 2 courses from the Furrow menu. 

The mains:


We headed straight for the mains this visit. I opted for the Roasted cauliflower which was served with cep mushrooms, cauliflower purée, goats cheese bonbons and onion relish. A really tasty, rich dish. 


My friend enjoyed the roasted Yorkshire partridge with braised savoy cabbage, pomme Anna, confit shallot, and a bacon and red wine sauce. As first time partridge eater, she loved this!

For dessert, we both chose the chocolate and mandarin soufflé. A rich chocolate soufflé with a dark chocolate sauce, served with a hazelnut and butterscotch ripple ice-cream. Super-sweet and delicious with oodles of silky chocolate sauce. We both thoroughly enjoyed this dish and were glad that we had saved space!

The Plough Bolnhurst:

The Plough Bolnhurst is the perfect venue to catch up and be cosy with friends and loved ones while enjoying some really well cooked food. Definitely worth a visit and we are looking forward to visiting again.
