Just a perfect English Pub

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... read more

Spotted this little pub on our way back from visiting thatchers cider shop so decided to stop for lunch. we both had ham, egg and chips and it was some of the best ham that I have ever tasted. They had a good choice of drinks and food. The service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long for... 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

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

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
