My partner had Chicken Supreme and I had Steak and Kidney pie. The meals came with new potatoes and fresh from the garden veg, all delicious. The house merlot was reasonably priced and for dessert my partner had a scoop of chocolate ice cream and I had Banana Bumble - out of this world!! With coffee the bill came to... More

The landlord of this establishment is first class in every way as are all his staff . My wife and I have dinned here many times and each he time it gets better. When we want to entertain our friends we always try to get in the plough first as it's the best around the food is exceptional fillet steak... More

Growing up I didn't listen to much my father told me but two things stand out. 1. Have good shoes and a good bed because if you're not in one, you're in the other. 2. Never trust a vegetarian, they don't have a balanced diet so can't have a balanced opinion. (veggies reading this, please don't feel the need to... More

Suffolk has many great restaurants and I have found so many that serve great food and where the staff go the extra mile to ensure you have a great meal. On my life, The Old Plough is a restaurant that stands out in so many ways. I wanted to shake the hand of the chef, the meal I had was... More

We discovered this restaurant a couple of years ago and it has been our favourite ever since. A classic menu done perfectly, great service, and a wine list that caters for all. This place has been in business for more than 25 years and I can see why. Large portions of vegetables are on offer as standard with every meal,... More

I really am stunned at the review by Elvis_052014, but then again he is a vegetarian. The fresh Meat, and fish that I have enjoyed on previous visits has always been of supreme quality and is cooked to perfection, no other place offers such a choice of vegetables which are once again cooked to absolute perfection. The restaurant (not pub)... More

Haven't got a clue what the last review was talking about, I am always amazed and enjoy both the quality of food served and the choice available, including more veg than you can name ! It is by far and away the best quality restaurant in the area for both food and ambiance. As for the decor the place is... More

This is the first bad review I have ever had to write but it was so bad I had to post something as we felt mislead by the previous good reviews. The décor is outdated and the pub smells of cigarette smoke, but that wouldn't have put me off if the food had of been good. There were no vegetarian... More

We visited Newmarket for a long weekend and chose this restaurant based upon the positive reviews it had received on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. My husband and I gave said said that upon our return visit we will definitely boom again to eat here. The slow Cooked lamb was delicious and so tender, it fell off the bone,... More

I really enjoyed my time at the plough the amount of veg you receive is amazing it seems to never stop. The Devore is a little strange or quirky with little wood jockey everywhere and toilets that wouldn't look out if place at Disney. The beers was really good and the service friendly. The food was like good old fashioned... More
