Welcome to The Plough Inn, Longparish.

The Plough Inn is situated in the picturesque Test Valley, close to the A303 and a short drive from Winchester, Basingstoke and Newbury. The internationally renowned River Test is on our doorstep and the Test Way footpath passes through our car park allowing us to provide the perfect stop for a refreshing pint of real ale and a bite from our delicious menu.

James Durrant and family took up residence at the Plough in April 2012, since which time the endeavours and hard work of James and the team have been recognised through a succession of prestigious awards. 

The Plough Inn (the origins of which date back to 1721) is a traditional country pub with a contemporary feel, serving award winning food. The warm, welcoming surroundings, log burning fires and cosy snug retain the original character and charm. Our aim is to make guests feel welcome and comfortable whether for a quick drink or meeting with friends and family for lunch or dinner. There is plenty of room in our attractive garden for dining al fresco. Children are welcome and specially catered for.
