Memorable meal.

We went to The Plough in a party of 7 at lunchtime. The food and service were outstanding. I had scallops to start with and it was one of the best dishes I have had in a long time. I followed with pork cheeks which, again, were delicious. I was too full for a pudding, unfortunately, but I told... read more

How I wish we lived closer to The Plough. We visited for the first time last Saturday evening on spec, when staying nearby. We could not get a booking in the restaurant but what we didn't realise (we were anticipating bar food) is that the same fabulous menu is available in the bar. Bar food conjures an image of managing... More

Feel very looked after at the Plough, excellent training with the staff, very nice Sunday lunch although I personally like my beef carved a little thicker. Wonderful gravy.

Once again superb food, great service and a wine list to keep the husband amused. Husband claims he has eaten the best steak he's ever eaten in his life here - and he should know - he's eaten a few. For the record I had the smoked pigeon starter, hubby the scallops, whole lemon sole for me for main (plus... More

Once again The Plough has proved to be the best place to eat in the area. My wife and I had a superb lunch, fine beer with the service being second to none. Even the dog was looked after. Five star all round.

Always superb, imaginative food, excellent service and tasteful surroundings well done! It is also delightful sitting in the gardens with the moorhens on the pond, what more could you want?

A return treat for lunch and as ever never fails to hit the spot. Delicious menu and cooked to perfection. The staff are so attentive and they really looked after us including specially cooking sausages for our children. We never like to leave and having also tried the Black Horse at Ireland this weekend, we know we should stick to... More
