Food here is always nice. Our last visit was spur of the moment and we hadn't booked but they found us a table anyway. Steak is always cooked well here..

Very disappointed on our last visit, new owners had been in for a few weeks, seemed well run, staff were friendly, the new menu was a bit sparse but the food quality had plummeted. Never had a bad steak there In the last, but this one was truly ropey and the famous chunky chips are now a thing of legend.... More

I do like the concept of this restaurant, looks like a pub on the outskirts of hanley but feels miles away when inside. Having been away earlier in week and treated for my birthday by family felt like going out tonight, and seeing there was only the 2 of us about offered to be my treat! Looked at menus online... More

I've always wanted to visit the Old Plough, I remember a good couple years back people saying it was the best in Stoke, you had to wait weeks for a table etc. And I wish I had visited then. Well we booked a table last night giving 20 minutes notice over the phone and the other half was starting university... More

We hadn't been since it had changed hands. The steak was perfectly cooked, but the chips were a little soggy and not enough of them as they came in a bowl on the main plate. There were loads of peas too many. Two onion rings which were good and mushrooms which were nice. Half a tomato. I had to pay... More

I had not visited The Old Plough since it changed hands. I feared that the quality may have dropped, as the reputation it had before would be hard to follow. In my opinion the quality of food and service is as good if not better, compared to the old, Old Plough :-)
