1st visit to The Plough for a birthday celebration. Highly recommended, food great and excellent service. Reasonable prices and a lovely setting. If I was to be picky I would have liked more starter selections (only 3 to choose from), and portion sizes to be a little bigger but that's a personal thing as I have a big appetite!

What a find ! This is a great restaurant, food was excellent, staff very friendly, and the bill was quite reasonable. OK it was a Thursday lunchtime, but the place was nicely quiet (though not like a library!) and the ambience superb. Recommended !

Being only 5 minutes away we thought we would finally try this pub with some friends. We all really enjoyed it and went again a few weeks later just myself and my partner. Staff very friendly and attentive, never had an empty glass. Food was fantastic and plenty of it. Even though the restaurant is small the atmosphere was great.... More

Had a fantastic night. Great laugh with friends and looked after superbly. The food was delish, even came back the next day for lunch. Gave our compliments to the chef (Marcus apparently) and will be back again soon!

Just had Sunday Lunch at the Plough. The décor is very nice, modern, clean and good taste. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. Beautifully cooked and well presented. The price was not cheap, but not expensive for the good quality dining. Overall, we were delighted and will definitely be going back.

Popped in on a Saturday lunchtime without a reservation. Despite being fully booked (with a large group in for a celebration too), we were only after a light lunch, and the staff and chef were happy to squeeze us in. The sandwiches and salad were quickly prepared and both fresh and delicious. The staff were all very friendly, the beer... More

A friend and I came across the Plough by accident having been let down by a nearby village pub but we were not disappointed by the Plough. Gorgeous food with charming service.

Three of us went to the Plough last night and all of us were very impressed with the standard of the food. It was very tasty, very well presented and a reasonable price. The staff were extremely pleasant and the Restaurant has been refurbished and it looks lovely now. Will certainly return to the Plough.

Visited on a Saturday night, small pub/restaurant but was busy so we had to wait a while in the bar for our table to be ready. Limited menu but we were fine with that as we would prefer an establishment to do a few dishes really well than try to do a wide variety but just ok. Food was fantastic,... More
