We have visited this restaurant many times over several years and the standard always remains very high. The staff are very attentive but don't smother you and you can tell that the owners run the place with precision. This time I ordered a steak and I have to say it was the best steak I have ever eaten. Our journey... More

We've dined here twice in the last week, returning quickly after our first visit, because we enjoyed the food, venue and service so much. On both occasions the food and service has been excellent. The chef trained with Raymond Blanc, a factor which partly inspired our first visit. There is an interesting menu, including daily specials on the blackboard that... More

fantastic menu which changes with the seasons. Top quality cooking and fantastic ingredients. the setting is also lovely in the middle of the countryside, this restaurant itself mixes modern design with traditional features. fantastic service and for me no other option if you want somewhere for a more special occasion in Bedford. It's worth the drive.

Tried to get a restaurant table at 10.30am and could only get one at 12.15pm which was too early, was told if we came along about 2pm we would probably get a table in the bar. Decided to take a chance and really pleased that we did. Arrived about 1.30pm for lunch on Bank Holiday Sunday and got a bar... More

Great place with lively atmosphere and mouth watering steaks ... The starters were amazing and even though it was slightly pricey compared to our normal haunts was well worth it - an occasion treat

Not only is The Plough a great place for lunch with both superb food and good beer at a very reasonable price but our four legged friend was made welcome. Highly recommend.

Out for a friend's birthday .(weekday ) Had lovely soup as a starter and then a slow cooked pork dish was delicious ! Others had steaks which were good too. Service was good even though we were a group of 10. Always enjoy the food here . Wines and drinks are always good too.

We had a family lunch at the Plough this weekend to celebrate my mother's 77th birthday and were very pleased with it. The menu was fairly small, which is always a good sign to my mind, but with a good choice of options for all tastes. Three of the family chose the roast beef which came nicely pink and was... More

We have had many meals at the Plough over the past three years and have yet to be disappointed. The food is delightful, the staff excellent and the atmosphere upbeat. We resist recommending restaurants as not everyone enjoys the same thing, but today we broke that rule and invited six friends (3 couples) to try the set lunch. They were... More
