We are open 7 days a week and serve classic Italian food with a strong focus on quality ingredients cooked well. Our menu is designed by Italian chefs and bring together traditional Italian dishes from all over Italy. We are passionate about sourcing premium ingredients and making as much as we can in-house. The majority of our pasta is made freshly in our kitchen and our Pizza Romana is made to order with our own sourdough base, San Marzano tomato sauce and buffalo mozzarella.

Alongside the food we have a great selection of wines, cocktails, beers, coffees & teas. Our organic coffee comes from the well-known London roasters, Union Coffee and our teas are carefully selected by Waterloo Tea. We have a small but ever-changing Cocktail Menu featuring some Italian classics as well as new creations from our bar staff. Our beers are sourced from places as far apart as Rome and Bermondsey, with the classic Peroni on draft, bottles from different regions of Italy, as well as a Pale Ale from The Kernel Brewery right here in SE16. We have a range of Italian wines that complements the food beautifully, and we also have some fantastic wines from the award-winning Oxney Estate in Kent, as well as French Champagne.  

Monday through to Friday we do a Lunch Express Menu with freshly made soup, pasta, pizza & salad served up within the hour at a reasonable price. 

In the winter, you will enjoy a warm & hearty welcome inside our bustling restaurant. And in spring and summer, our outside piazza springs to life and you can enjoy your lunch or dinner in our very own mini olive tree grove. 

We welcome children and have a Menu per Bambini as well as high-chairs. We also welcome dogs of any kind to Plough Way Cafe. 

We hope to see you soon!
