Great food combined with great beer

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... read more

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

A rearranged Christmas Eve meal, courtesy of landlady, Joyce, beautifully presented in a superbly decorated seasonal restaurant/ bar. All three courses tasty to guarantee future return visits. Friendly, homely, 5 stars

As always the Christmas decorations were just stunning and so tasteful. Our family of five ordered two Turkey, two Beef and one Pork roast all of which were excellent with so many vegetables. Everyone loved the roast potatoes, and the large yorkshire puddings. Do try the cranberry and mandarin torte - just melts in the mouth. Lovely atmosphere. Not cheap... More

We took a foreign exchange student here for Sunday lunch and again, we weren't disappointed. Lunch was cooked to perfection, landlord was very welcoming and the fire kept us warm while we ate. Would recommend this pub to anyone.

Beautiful old timber framed building made even more delightful by the clever Christmas decorations. Food and service were excellent with a wide choice of interesting dishes to suit everybody.We are not local but it was well worth the journey and we shall return.
