The Plough is in the village of Birdbrook on the borders of Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

We are a traditional thatched pub equipped with beams, log fire, thatched roof and spacious beer garden which is the perfect setting whether you are coming for drinks on a sunny afternoon or a three course meal on a winter's evening and everything in between.

Food is served everyday, please check the menus for serving times. There is a 'Classic Pub Menu' served at all times and specials that change daily.

Greene King IPA and Sharps Doombar are the regular beers with guest ales being introduced often.

Regular evening entertainment takes place, please see our what's on section for more information. If there is anything that you would like us to put on please get in touch.

The village of Birdbrook is not just picturesque but filled with the friendliest people you could hope to meet. Why not come along and meet everyone.
