Visited with my wife and Mother in Law for lunch. We all had the battered fish and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce. The batter was crisp, the fish tasty and the chips rustic and well cooked. We had ice cream to finish, and all the chosen flavours were delicious. The meal, the service and the location were all... More

This is not the first time I have reviewed this restaurant, but I thought it justified an update, we have been coming to this venue for many years, but after a bad time with new owners we stopped coming. On getting the news that it had another new owner, we returned and were not dissapointed. we now return from time... More

We visited The Plough on 7th March as part of a weekend away in liskeard, what an absolutely lovely little place! Staff were very helpful and friendly, food was great value for money, the fish especially was fantastic. Just a shame about moany customers being rather snobby, there is a time and a place to have an argument with staff... More

First things first, our starters were lovely! However 3 out of out 6 mains were not satisfactory. We were enjoying the company of our friends and so carried on eating and didn't really make much of a fuss. A steak that was £20 was over done, the burger over done and tough and the gnocchi- tasteless. We gave feed back... More

I Feel there is no value in a procrastinated response fom myself. What I can confirm is that we did deduct the desserts from the bill as a gesture on our part, the table was checked several times during the meal and a valued female member of the team was left very upset and shaken by the experience. I would... More

A nice place offering a friendly service and relatively good food. Relatively, because the "hand cut" chips unfortunately were overdone whilst the steak was only an average piece of meat. That said, the portions were quite large and all in all the meal tasted very good. We will be back!

I've been coming up to the plough consistently for a few years now. When new owners came in a few months ago I was worried that my favourite local place to eat may go downhill. However I am very happy to say that it has gone uphill! The food is still tasty, interesting and well priced, while the service has... More

Four of us had booked a table on a Tuesday evening on the recommendation of others. Our four meals (ranging from a mussels starter to the fish pie to gnocchi to alpaca sausages) were all superb and very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity. The puddings were equally delicious. The welcome from the owners was warm and very friendly,... More
