Winter 2014 - The Plough Inn, Stretton-on-Fosse
The Pub of the Season award for Winter 2014 was presented on Tue 3rd March by Dave Page, Shakespeare CAMRA Treasurer.
The Plough Inn is in the heart of the village and it oozes charm and character. First time licensees Steve and Mandy Aubrey, have taken on this former Warwickshire Pub of the Year after a six year search and they have big boots to fill as the former owners had a great reputation for food and ale. They have brought with them a new head chef Christophe Le Saint, who has a pedigree of turning out top food in a number of prestigious Cotswold pubs and restaurants offering a range of superb homemade dishes using local ingredients where possible.
The pub received a new kitchen and a face lift and a lovely new white washing on the outside.
Serving four beers you'll be sure of a good choice. When several Shakespeare CAMRA members visited, we were not disappointed, on offer were Marstons EPA, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Wye Valley Butty Bach and Wickwar BOB.
