Just stopped by the plough as we were fishing across the road. All we had were 3 coke's and 2 portions of chips but the chip's were homemade and delicious. Staff friendly and very welcoming. Would of liked to of stayed longer.

This is a great find. I have lived in the Vale and this is one of the best country pubs around. This is a proper country pub and has not been homogenised so that it retains some character which adds to the atmosphere. A really friendly welcome - we were made to feel completely at home. Delicious food and the... More

We popped in with no expectations, just hungry when we made our discovery. Staff were friendly and welcoming and immediately felt at home in the pub and restaurant. Menu was varied but suited to all tastes. When our orders arrived, the food appeared beautifully home cooked and tasty. All the staff were fun and friendly which is rare sadly now,... More

Called in for Sunday Lunch and were delighted to find good service, fantastic food and great atmosphere. The Landlord, Bob and his team were excellent; and a Landlord who goes above and beyond the call of duty by personally making sure that inconsiderate owners dog mess is regularly cleared up - is dedicated indeed. Thoroughly recommended.

Relaxed atmosphere, lovely setting, took a nice walk along the canal with the dog before sitting in the garden where dogs and families are very welcome, food is happily bought outside. It was Mothers day so it was very very busy however service was still impeccable.

Me and my folks went here for lunch a couple of days ago after a walk along the nearby canal. The food was great, the service was spot on. They are having a bit of refurb work done at the moment and look forward to coming back soon. Highly recommended.

Visited here on Friday 28th dec at 18:30. We had the steak and Ale pie from the specials board and Fish pie from the main menu. Could not fault the food,quantity, service or the price which was very reasonable. Will be coming here again when next up here. Very nice and friendly country pub.

Had a Saturday lunch here after a long walk down the canal nearby. Staff were welcoming and our orders were taken quickly despite the pub being busy. I must add we had reserved a table prior to our walk. Both our friends have small appetites and were asked if they wanted a half portion of the fish and chips. Shortly... More
