Miller and Carter Ruislip

AKA The Plough


Pictures above from opening night February 2012



The Plough is on the main road out of Ruislip towards Ickenham, on Bury Street. You only have to look at the building to realise that parts of it are very old, whilst other additions are newer.

It is actually a restaurant ONLY and you can no longer just nip in for a pint (correct 2013).

Where it is, by road

On Bury Street. From the roundabout at the bottom of Ruislip High Street take the exit signed to Harefield/Rickmansworth. The Plough may be found along here on the right after about one mile. It is set back from the road and quite tricky to spot.


Telephone Number - 

07763 128896

Real ale

Probably not

Access via public transport

Fair. The H13 running from Ruislip Station stops more or less outside

Pub Crawl Potential - please note you MUST dine in here to get a drink.

Fair. It is a bit far to walk in to Ruislip, about one mile to the High Street. The Six Bells is about 1/2 mile out and to the right, The Woodman may be nearer, but you would need to know how to get through the streets opposite and the latter offers poor return transport links. Of course as you cannot just nip in for a pint it really should not be on here as part of any pub "crawl" but you never know...it might come back as a pub one day!

We went to Miller & Carter " The Plough" on Dec 26th 2015. There were eight in our party, sadly the service left much to be desired . After placing our order & waiting a good 1/2 hour...the waitress returned to say the order had been "misplaced" and it was re taken. Another 1/2 passes & the first course arrives. This I must say was very nice, except that two in our party did not order a starter.....so an hour later they still had not eaten anything.

When the main course arrived, we had actually been seated for 1.5 hours, the food was very mediocre. The restaurant was not full by any means, and more staff were certainly required.


To top it all....the manageress had the gall to state that the "mislaid :" order was NOT the fault of the waitress. Well I asked " are you saying the blame here lies with the clients " ?...no reply to that...guess who is not going back?



The Plough is dated back to before Oliver Cromwell's time.  It is alleged that Cromwell and his men stayed the night before the march on London in the 1640's.  So the Plough is at least 370 years old.  If you go into the small pub, you will notice a large print of a photo taken in the early 1930's.  The gentleman in full dress clothes to the bottom left of the photo is my great grandfather, Clarke who was a decorated army man during the occupation of India. Great Granddad Clarke,  had a drayage company in Ruislip.  In this particular photo, he and his men had dressed their horse and carts for the annual Easter parade through the Manor etc.  If you look to the background of the photo you will see the original (and still standing) home part of the pub.  In the upstairs windows is my mom Joan Whitehead (married name Heron) and her sister, Lillian (Babs) Whitehead (married name Lewis).  They both had Chickenpox so couldn't go to the parade but wanted to be part of this historical picture. 
My mom's parents (George and Lillian Whitehead nee Clarke) managed The Plough from the late 1910's to their early deaths in 1938 (father) and 1940 (mother).  Both parents died of T.B.
The Ruislip Woods behind The Plough provided endless hours of fun and adventure for my mom, her sister and the next door neighbours, the Collins (namely Peter and Eva).

Anything special? 

It looks lovely from the outside and even to the layman you can see that parts of the building are very old, other extensions newer.
