Local Favourite

In the heart of one of Cardiff’s favourite suburbs, the Plough is a much-loved favourite with an established reputation for traditional cask ale and modern British cuisine.
Our menu is built around the principle of giving you inspiring food made with the very best ingredients.  Each day, our team of chefs bring our guests a new menu made up of British favourites that uses high quality Welsh ingredients –sourced from our locally based suppliers. From traditional pub classics to Bistro favourites, there is always food to entice and excite at the Plough. 

CASK MARQUE ACCREDITED

The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
