Landlord and staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Lovely environment and beautiful garden.

A beautiful old Pub restaurant with a very varied home cooked menu. The Land Lord and Land lady are very welcoming and immediately make you feel at home.

Friendly welcome as always. Hard to choose from the 4 Roasts on offer. Our party of 5 chose 3 Pork lunches, 1 Beef and 1 Chicken. All were excellent - nicely presented, and really large portions. Good choice of starters and lovely desserts. Two courses 17.95. Will be back again soon, no doubt.

we went to the Plough Inn last night there were 4 of us and it was just a real treat to go somewhere that has not been turned into a gastro pub we visited there a few years back and nothing has changed just as warming and friendly and cosy the food was delicious. I would certainly recommend anyone looking... More

Visited here one Friday for some lunch with my wife. I had seen all the good reviews on Tripadviser but wanted to see for myself. I wasn't dissappointed we were greeted by a really friendly young lady who showed us the menu whilst sorting out our drinks and then showed us to our table. We both ordered battered prawns for...

Very friendly staff . Clean- cottage feel to pub. Good choice of food. Not long to wait for food. Nice puddings too. Definitely worth a visit.

We have been to The Plough several times for lunch and the food is always excellent. The menu is always varied and the odd South African dish makes a nice change fromm other eateries. Highly recommended.

This is a traditional English inn, complete with the quiet amosphere, and welcome. In a small village miles from anywhere We have just had the most wonderful meal. Menu is fairly limited, but as they say all good things come in small packages. Well worth the drive out into the countryside. I can not think of a more pefect place... More

Spent last evening at the Plough Inn, Rede, when our son and his financee came down from Peak District to take us out to celebrate engagement etc. As ever the atmosphere and food is superb, all hand cooked by the owner and his wife with an extensive menu. Between 4 of us we chose Crab au Gratin, Figgy Pork, Steak... More

I dine at The Plough quite often. The quality of the varied menu does not change. It is excellent in all respects. The host and his staff are all very welcoming, pleasant and courteous. It accommodates parties and quiet dinners for two. Highly recommended
