Superb food and service

Friends took us here for the first time this evening. Amazing food, excellent service and great surrounding. Can't wait to visit again - its definitely worth driving 25 miles for us to go back again.

I took my dad to The Plough for Sunday lunch. He loved it, the service he thought was immaculate, and the beef some of the best he had tasted. We have eaten there in the evening and it has always been excellent, but Sunday lunch is just as good. It is not often that you go to a restaurant where... More

Just got back from Sunday lunch with my Father at the Plough, Bolnhurst and I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. We were greeted with a warm welcome our drinks order taken and we were offered a seat in the bar to peruse the menus handed to us at the bar. We both decided on the three course set Sunday... More

We like the Plough and keep returning because it delivers first class food at a reasonable price in a lovely old inn with good staff and a friendly atmosphere. The menu is always interesting. Starters of Pan fried Wood pigeon and Portland Crab were excellent and very tasty. The mains Roast Anjou Squab Pigeon & Roast Yorkshire Grouse both delicious.... More

We visited The Plough for the first time recently for a birthday lunch and were very impressed. Although we had a special menu, the choices, the food and the service were excellent. For starters we had the duck breast confit and vegetable salad with the grilled plaice for mains and sorbet and summer pudding for deserts - it was delicious.... More

Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Starters, main course and dessert were equally good, with crab salad, perfectly cooked pigeon and soufflé being worthy of special mention. We shall be going to the Plough again.

The Plough is one of our favourite places for a memorable meal out - and probably the best for special meals for two. Never disappoints and didn't again last Friday. Enjoyed sitting outside with a drink by the water in the sunshine. Food enjoyable and filling with interesting choices. Service feels personal and human. Overall a very good example of... More

Booked a meal to celebrate a birthday at The Plough after a recommendation from friends. We weren't disappointed. After finding the restaurant - you have to be sharp to spot the sign from the road - we sta down in eager anticipation. Ordering a drink at the bar, we were then taken to our table where warm, home baked bread... More

We have visited The Plough on many occasions and the level of service and quality of food here is always outstanding. One of the best elements is the consistency of the staff, the same people work here and this not only gives an excellent level of consistency, it shows me that the staff here enjoy working here and the management...
