Have dined here many times over the years, and the thing that is always so noticeable is the quality of their produce. Cuts of meat that are a bit of nostalgia - such as beef cheeks. I took this on the last visit, cooked over night, and simply melted in the mouth. Service is always very good, but as many... More

Have just eaten at The Plough on both Friday and Saturday nights and was not disappointed on either occasion. The beef cheeks on Friday night specials were melt in the mouth and the a la carte menu on Saturday was equally as impressive. The food is beautifully cooked and the service is attentive but unfussy. Loved the log fires and... More

The Plough is a place I have meant to visit for years and a chance finally came on our wedding anniversary. Table was booked on line without difficulty. Staff were welcoming on arrival and attentive and efficient throughout the meal. Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere to enhance some really good food. Hopefully we will return sooner rather than later

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here with a romantic meal. It lived up to all our expectations. A great place, great service and great food.

There is nowhere better in Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire. I am fortunate to live locally and we eat here often - we also drop in just for a drink too.

We visited the Plough with some friends and whilst not busy the atmosphere was still good. Good selection of beers and a really nice menu. The food was excellent and well presented but I do think it is a little pricey for Gastropub type food.

We visited The Plough and had lunch with a couple of friends on a Sunday. Although I booked a table for four in the dining area a couple of weeks in advance, we were sat in the bar area, which I mentioned I did not want and so I was a little disappointed, but it didn't spoil our meal. There... More

Cant fault it at all, went here with my mum and dad enjoyed the place and people. Abit pricey but you can understand the food and service was high standard.

I bought my girlfriend here because it is fairly local and I couldn't find anywhere else close by with the Chateaubriand. The atmosphere was lively but comfortable, and the menu had plenty to choose from. All meals that were presented around nearby tables looked amazing and the chateaubriand was no exception. Would highly recommend a visit and will definitely be... More
