Lovely pub with hearty English pub grub

This pub doesn't look hugely inviting from the outside, but the atmosphere inside is great. A proper pub with slate floors, open fires, great selection of local ales and some great food. The staff are friendly. Would definitely return soon!

A lovely pub in Congresbury, which sells a good range of Beers, and great food. The beer garden is large and great on a nice summers evening.

We had a meal here that was recommended, as we were staying in the area. The two young people who served us were amazing and the food was really good too. It was a fish and chip special night which we both really enjoyed. We went back two nights later for the New Years Eve party night which was fun... More

Visited The Plough recently with a group a friends and found the pub and its staff extremely welcoming. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and you can sit, chat and socialise. The landlord makes every effort to chat to customers. We didn't eat on this occasion however the meals looked amazing and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this little... More

Food excellent value for money. Good menu, plenty on your plate and well cooked. Good variety of beers and wine well priced. A good meeting place with friends. Landlady very helpful with coeliac diets.

This pub looks deceivingly welcoming and friendly from the outside. However if you are not "in" with the landlord you are at risk of receiving rude and impatient service. Not a very relaxing or social place to visit at all. A terrible disappointment.

We chose to come to this pub for a drink and some food after reading such lovely reviews. I was very disappointed, although the food was good it was completely ruined by its unfriendly cliquey nature. I was shocked particularly by the landlords rudeness and unwelcoming manner. It felt as though he took for granted a guaranteed local custom and... More

Reasonably priced drinks, and what appears to be a nice local pub from the outside. The atmosphere inside the pub is however very unfriendly, and unless you belong to a select group of known regulars you receive exceptionally rude treatment from the pub landlord and made to generally feel very unwelcome. The most un-public 'public house' that I have visited,... More

Since when was a pub not a social establishment ? Apparently this pub is strictly a business not for customers. Being harassed to buy another drink on top of the last 2 or to leave at 10 pm well before last orders- just unimaginable rudeness and ruined everyone's evenings. Just stick with the old inn around the corner, wouldn't want... More
