We came here for dinner. Lovely little place. Its a pub, but definitely on the side of gastro-pub. The garden backs onto the canal so would be lovely in the summer, dining alfresco. Our food was really nice. My antipasto board was enormous and pretty tasty The only thing that slightly marred our evening was that only one of the... More

After finishing our meal we decided to call a cab to take us back to the hotel, but after waiting 40 minutes for easycabs... More

Had the entire restaurant to ourselves for a 40th B'day bash. Great service, excellent food and fun had by all. Antonio and the team couldn't do enough to ensure everyone had a great time. We had a buffet laid on for guests, and the food on offer was exceptional and there was plenty to go round. Had great feedback from... More

Very pleasantly surprised. This review is after our second visit to this deceptively nice pub restaurant. Location: Southern side of town in Simpson (very easy to get to) Menu: Excellent selection mostly Italian variations but mixed with some simply stunning traditional variations. Value: Pretty good, prices are average for MK Staff: Polite and helpful, sometimes a little slow, but then... More

Lovely food, service and atmosphere. As a coeliac I am apprehensive about eating out but I've always loved eating at the Plough and even when they changed their menu they got GF pasta in. Yum.

I love this pub - very cosy atmosphere in the winter, lovely garden by the canal in the summer, good ale, beer and a great selection of wine. The food is consistently good - whether that's the starters, main courses, deserts or snacks. LOVE this pub !

I took some folks here for a business meal. We eventually departed not having received our main meals after about 2 hours. The restaurant was not busy, it was a third full if that. It took 45 minutes for them to serve four cold started and one soup, during this time we only saw about two meals coming from the... More

We were the first in the restaurant...nice area. The food was good. Soup of the day very nice along with bruschetta. Tasy pizza too and very... More
