What I Ate Wednesday | The Plough at Harborne

Breakfast at the pub: With plenty of excellent pubs to choose from in Harborne, it’s a hard decision to find an ideal one to start a pub crawl in the area. But if you’re looking for something to eat, first thing in the morning, The Plough is definitely worth stopping by.

The breakfast menu in The Plough is definitely not an average one. Not even the traditional Full English is that simple. Going for a smoked salmon, scrambled egg and toast was the best option I could have. Just a winner!

The presentation I expected for a seven-pound (£7) meal was delivered and the light and subtle combination of flavours confirmed that this was one of the best options in town for a brekkie. As a day never starts before having a nice cup of coffee, I had a latte and I can say they really take their coffee experience seriously.

If the weather is pleasant, The Plough has a spacious and very trendy beer garden to be explored and a nice smoothie can be a nice drink to enjoy outside better. Ask for a mango and strawberry one. Very refreshing!

As foods and drinks flow very well in this place, there I was later for a quick bite and I can tell you the smoked pancetta, chilli and fresh basil pizza was delicious. Perfect and crunchy crust! My other half chose beef carpaccio, gorgonzola, rocket and parmesan pizza and we could have invited 10 more people to eat with us because of the generous size.

The Plough is a very family-oriented place. The decor is absolutely dreamy. A bit of industrial and classic combined in a very clever way. It’s also a nice pub to gather with friends and what’s better; it’s placed in one of the most interesting areas of Birmingham.
