Don't just think about it, book it ! You will not be disappointed. The Plough has been on my list of places to visit for a long time and I was certainly impressed with the location, service and overjoyed by the quality of the food. Thank you.

A really excellent meal here when visiting friends in the area who know The Plough well. We hadn't booked, but by arriving at opening time we were able to get a lovely table in the bar area. A very good menu and all 4 of us were really pleased with our choices. It's a long time since I've tasted such... More

Went with friends when they recommended it to meet up. During evening friends had a small trauma with child care arrangements. The staff were fantastic, really flexible about when to serve parts of the meal, easy going about how delayed we were and even brought a small and delicious garlic risotto to stop the hunger whilst waiting. On top of... More

Had a lovely mid week anniversary dinner here. The food and service are excellent. First visit and while the menu is slightly on the pricier side it's great value for the quality. Slightly off the beaten track but worth a visit.

Although this is quite local to us we don't go that often. Went here with a friend for Saturday evening & ate in the small & rather dark room (much prefer their larger & more open room). My wifey & friend had risotto to start - both said how excellent it was. Risotto can be a bad choice as most... More

This is a very well run pub and I'm yet to be disappointed by anything served here. Personal favourites are the soufflés and the steaks. You'll not be disappointed here. It's not cheap but it's worth the extra......

A group of four couples out for a meal. We had a good sized table and were not squashed in. A good selection of beers and a very good wine list - had the opportunity to try something new. The food was excellent. My only complaint would be the portions on the cheese board. They had some lovely cheeses, I... More

Ate here on Saturday at lunch time with my partners family and had a wonderful meal. We were really well attended too throughout and the food was all cooked to perfection! A few course we're not how we expected them to arrive sadly as the menu wasn't very descriptive. The decor of the place was perfect for the setting its... More
