This was my second visit, my friends' first, so it was my recommendation. Food lived up to my description, but service was dreadful. They were woefully understaffed for a Friday night. My calamari were crisp, light, but had little flavour. Pate was excellent but not served with enough bread. Pizzas were good, but sharper knives were needed for the crisp... More

Antonio and his team were extremely helpful in arranging some food after my father in law's funeral. The food was lovely, service excellent and the sun was shining. Lovely setting in the al fresco area and made to feel extremely welcome. Everyone commented how nice it was and that the buffet was really good. Thanks

A large group visited this pub and we were not left disappointed. Everyone was pleased with the quality and range of the food. Despite the large group, the food arrived together and was hot. Good size portions and an unpretentious, but tasty menu. The service was friendly and efficient. A welcome change from all the chain restaurants in Milton Keynes.... More

From the outside it seems a warm and welcoming village pub. When we walked in it felt like we were in the Wild West. The Barman wasn't very friendly and could do with a course in hospitality. I have been here a few times now and experienced similar service. Needless to say I will take my custom else where.

This is an attractive pub in a small village. There is plenty of parking and the garden would be lovely on a warm day. However we were meeting friends and had booked a table for lunch. The menu was varied albeit mainly pasta and pizza with a few other choices. The restaurant is clean [ as are the loos] and... More

We have visited The Plough several times and have never been disappointed! The food here is fantastic. We try to have something different everytime we visit and whatever we choose is always delicious. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food and drink is reasonably priced. I would definitely reccommend this place to anyone!
