Called for a light lunch on the strength of Good Pub Guide reviews and chose from the Express Menu. My wife chose fish and chips and I chose a favourite of mine, the Ploughman's. The fish and chips were fine, a bit on the small side, but for £6.99 it was a reasonable portion. My Ploughman's lunch, however was a... More

We had a Civil Wedding, Reception and evening do at the Plough (August 2014), We chose the venue because of the idyllic Barn and surroundings. The Owner was very helpful with preparations. It is a breath of fresh air when a venue wants to help with your day instead of charging for every extra! When the wedding car got stuck... More

We found the service was excellent leading up to the wedding and food on the day was fantastic. The staff were incredibly helpful and the rooms were lovely. We would recommend The Plough Inn as a wedding venue, it is excellent value for money and my wedding guests commented on what a lovely venue it was and how relaxed and... More

We selected the Plough for our 25th Anniversary Celebrations and were not disappointed! We chose this location mainly because of the charming 'barn' area which had echoes of the place we held our wedding breakfast. Everything went really well and the food provided by Trish and the team was excellent -we chose the hot/cold buffet BTW. All our guests (about... More

We called here on spec as we happened to be driving by at lunchtime. We chose off the express menu which was very reasonably priced with good portion sizes. I had the tastiest cheese and onion pie with mash which I couldn't finish as it was so filling. The staff were very pleasant and we will definitely return to eat... More
