This lunchtime we visited for the first time and had a light lunch. We settled on beer and a sandwich each. The beer was, of course, good but the sandwiches were a delightful surprise being served in in-house baked Italian bread rolls, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil at the table. The ingredients were fresh and delicious (as were the... More

What a shame - This place has most of the right ingredients but some fundamental issues that need attention! Front of house is chaotic - we initially tried to telephone but no-one answered the phone. It wasn't that busy so no excuses there. Service is poor - chaotic. Staff who don't seem to be very experienced or understand what we... More

Stumbled across this restaurant since my partner had a job interview nearby and we stayed in a b&b down the street, so it was the only way to get food in the evening. Turned out to be a real find. Everything has this home made, "built from scratch" taste and freshness.The pizza was the best we ever had. After around... More

2nd review but have been a few more times. Attention to detail is awesome, and food is cooked to perfection ( does entail a wait though). Excellent wine selection, great service with a smile. This is no ordinary Italian, if fact nothing ordinary about it Plenty of parking space

Thank you for taking the time to write. Service is something we are desperately trying to improve upon but recruitment is a problem as believe it or not there are not many who want to work unsociable hours and due to the location, finding staff with transport is also difficult , so always a struggle. I note that time seemed... More

2nd visit. First visit was an evening out with friends when we enjoyed the food but then seemed to become invisible to staff (despite the room being less than half full) after the main course was served - so much so that we left without having time to order desert. A second visit at lunchtime for a group of us... More

Oh, wow! The food here was amazing. Everything appeared (and tasted) home made. Chosen by a family member we thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal. We had pizza, fish & chips and a aubergine vegetarian meal. Everything was cooked to perfection and very well presented. Try it, you wont be disappointed. Can't wait to go again!!

Have been to The Plough on a couple of occasions and found the service very poor both times. The food is also very average considering it is supposed to be authentic Italian.

Thank you for your response, although I feel it is not genuine, having looked at your other responses, I note that you also gave our sister restaurant a poor review, for which you received a response as on that occasion it was felt your comments were unjustifiable and incomparable to all the others, we then noted you had reviewed the...

Had a fantastic meal and night out at the plough. The food, staff and wine was fantastic. My mum and sister particularly enjoyed the pizzas. The bar and waiting staff were second to none and the coffee was one of the best ive had outside Italy

I've been to the plough many times and have always had a good experience. However, on this occasion there seemed to be something missing..... We visited late afternoon on Mother's Day so that we would miss the rush and it seemed a good call as there were only 3-4 tables occupied on our arrival. The meal started off well enough,... More

Two of us met for an early evening glass of wine and couldn't resist trying the pizza cooked in their wood burning ovens. It didn't disappoint and this brief visit has inspired me to book lunch later this week. We arrived at around 6pm on a Friday a couple of weeks ago and it was already getting busy and certainly...
