One of the highlights of the summer was a glorious evening at the Plough- not just the great food and wine selection but the al fresco atmosphere is an experience not to miss.

You have to drive out to Bolnhurst, but that's the only negative about The Plough. The food is better than excellent, the menu interesting, the service is always good and both the atmosphere and the environment contribute. It's all good, really.

The Plough is a lovely place to turn up to in the evening, it has a very picturesque look to the building and is a great setting for a dinner in the evening. The food we had here was lovely, although a couple of strange flavour combinations, but the food all in all was of good quality and well presented.... More

We went here the Sunday before my partners big birthday ( early celebration). We sat at a table in the old rooms on the right. There was a lovely open fire, the staff were very polite and efficient and the food was wonderful. We will definitely be going here again. Well done for training your young people not to call...

We haven't been here for a few months but it is a great pub / restaurant which serves British food. The food is very good. Last time we went I had a steak and my husband had risotto. Both yummy. Would recommend.

We have been here a few times, usually with friends, and never come away disappointed. The food is always excellently presented, seasonal and tasty. The service is always friendly (although a little slow at times - understandable as everything is freshly cooked to order and it's always busy). The wine list is pretty good but a little overpriced for the... More

Greeted like an old friend, although this was only our second visit of 2014. Everyone friendly, including other guests. Food excellent, price not unreasonable, service quick and efficient. What more is there to say. New Year's resolution to dine there more often.

Several times have we been and it will always have us going back. It's been great every time! I love the ambience to this place and the quality service only tops the food. I highly recommend this for small intricate birthday meals or Christmas gatherings- it's a hidden gem!
