Superb quality and excellent value - highly recommended

Went in a party of eight and it was really outstanding. There is a great selection of drinks in the bar, the restaurant is modern yet characterful (beautiful light fittings), the staff knowledgeable and attentive. The menu is different yet unpretentious, all the food we had was of the highest... read more

In one word 'No' - we ate this evening 28/02 at 1830 hrs earlier this evening. We had a lovely greeting by Jess & Jim and taken to out table. Everything was as before, clean, modern decor and a great atmosphere. We had already pre-ordered the 'Chateaubriand' but still had a look at the various menus - great selection choice... More

At last a local country pub that has the balance just right. The new owners have decorated and managed to give the old place a modern clean and spacious feel without sacrificing the traditional country pub character. The food has also had a complete make-over, with everything looking and tasting great. The menu is not too large, so you know... More

I had heard how fabulous this pub restaurant was, so we gave it a try. Wow! Somewhere decent to go now near home. Loved the food (just a small issue with overcooked prawns) and the dessert was fantastic. A lovely atmosphere and good service too. A little on the pricey side, but the food is such excellent quality, and the... More

Took our mum there at weekend. Great choice of gin's etc. waitress was very attentive and gave a detailed description of the specials on the menu. The food was great! Nice flavours, we all had good choices. Lovely decor. Would definitely book again, when in the area. Nice to go somewhere if you don't like chains..... Or microwave food!

Mid week meal out with a couple of girlfriends, we usually go somewhere like The Navigation as we go more for a good chat than the food but decided to try The Plough. I am so glad we did as the food was amazing. Having recently returned from a trip to Canada where we ate at some fantastic restaurants this... More

Saturday lunchtime. A party of 11. And we were looked after superbly. The food was simply excellent and the attention to detail in the decor, atmosphere and service was impeccable. My starter of scallops and belly pork was outstanding. Everyone in our party was hugely impressed. I grew up in neighbouring Blisworth but now live in Surrey and can say... More

I've been trying to come to the Plough for a few months now, and each time I try and book they are full...now I know why. Finally made it tonight for a family meal and cannot fault it. The service and food were both excellent, and I don't award 5 stars lightly but this definitely deserves it. The fillet steak... More
