We called at this pub as we liked the look of it when we passed previously. We were a family of six travelling from Swansea to Bristol Airport and thought it would be nice to stop for lunch. We went to the bar only to be greeted by the comment, children are not allowed in this pub but if you... More

I am unsure of what realm of fantasy the people who run the plough live in. Running a friendly welcoming pub is a very simple oporation if you're good at it. Upon ordering ordering two pints, we were forced to buy snacks in order to meet the minimum £10 spend on card as they were unwilling to let us have... More

Visited following a recommendation. Busy even on a Wednesday evening - food arrived in good time and was complemented by good service.

My wife and I went for a meal on a Saturday night at 7 pm, we arrived early, not a good move as the afternoon drinking locals were loud and blocked all ways to the bar. When we were served the staff were friendly and helpful . By about eight oclock, the bar had calmed down and our meal was... More

They had a good choice of drinks and food. The service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long for... More

What more can you want on Easter Monday but a delicious meal in a welcoming inn? This is not pretentious - not gastro pub or anything like that but just excellent home cooked food. My game pie was superb and my partners Lamb excellent. Fine beer and lovely service. I am sorry the one star folk didn't enjoy their time... More

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
