Engagement meal at the Plough Inn Rede

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... read 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

I have eaten here quite a few times and the food never disappoints. The menu is varied and changes frequently. I have to stop myself having the Crab au Gratin which is just delicious. This time I had Beef&Ale in rich gravy served in Vole vents( can`t think how to spell that) with lovely veg - wow you could have... More

Recently had our first visit here for Sunday lunch. Very welcoming staff, a bit cramped and the wine could have been a bit colder. Food was nice and reasonably priced, however we felt a bit 'processed' as service was very fast not really giving enough time between courses to enjoy the experience. They did slow down after we asked for... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always to a very High standard and neither I or any of my friends have ever been disappointed. Its extremely quaint with low oak beams and an open fire, just how a country pub/restaurant should be. With Brian behind the bar and Joyce in the kitchen its a great team... More

A little out of the way, but not far from Bury St Edmunds, very quiet location but reasonably busy for a week day lunch. Good beer, friendly bar. Choice of food is wide enough for most to find a favourite. Good prompt unobtrusive service; well worth a visit especially if you don't have to rush back to work.

It feels as though it's in the middle of nowhere and it is! What a great find based on the recommendation of friends. Superb choice of food with some unusual dishes such as oxtail, rabbit etc, The range of real ales was a welcome surprise and all was reasonably priced. We have already made a return trip!

A good welcome to a very busy pub on a Friday lunchtime - always a good sign. Great choice of dishes. I chose the Fish Curry which was nice, could have been spicier but was still good. Service was excellent

I want to take this opportunity on behalf of the "HGNS" to thank both Brian and Joyce for supporting and subsidising the monthly lunch they do for 30+ Horringer residents. You give them a warm welcome and cater for their very different tastes. They have all enjoyed the lunches tremendously and would recommend the Plough at Rede. A big thank... More

We visited for a midweek evening meal and it was fantastic. The food was brilliant, everything is written up on the blackboards but the choice is great. Next time I'm going to come at the weekend - it was a little quiet for me but that's no surprise on a Tuesday night in January and nothing to do with the... More
