I went here for lunch last Saturday with my wife and newborn son, it was our second visit here, both times were fantastic. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and also very polite - something a lot of eateries seem to forget about now. The lunch menu was good value, the food came out well presented and very tasty indeed.... More

Felt very let down with the place. The food was very mediocre. The service was quite good and friendly but there was nothing here that would bring me back in a hurry, certainly not the prices, expensive for a run of the mill boozer turned into a restaurant.

Decided to shelter from the downpour and have a coffee and happened on The Plough. Excellent décor, friendly and hospitable staff. I didn't eat on this occasion but browsed the menu and would definitely make the effort to come back for a meal

My first visit to The Plough and it will not be the last. My friend and I had the Sunday roast (lamb) and it was excellent. Followed up with the Sticky Toffee Pudding with Banana Ice Cream - the best I have ever had. Jolly good well priced Rioja complimented a meal that had first rate service too. I shall... More

I went for dinner with 5 friends last Thursday evening, we had a round table which was great. Good spacing between tables, very airy and cool which was lovely as it was a very warm evening. no trouble parking in the spaces provided in front of the restaurant. I had tempura prawns as a starter which were delicious and their... More

Been a few times now and think this is a very good place to eat. Today went in for lunch, was only table and 7 of us. Calamari and Prawns for starters were great. Fish and Chips and Scampi were equally as good. Service was fine and fast, drinks were great, desserts seemed just as good although personally, I didn't... More

If you go for bland food in badly designed, cramped, characterless restaurants with no atmosphere, then this is the place for you. And if struggling to find a parking space in a tiny car park, and eventually finishing up parking in the main road is how you like to start your evening, then you're on a win double. I thought...

We went to the Plough for a family meal. The service was outstanding and so we're our desserts (amazing choc brownie). Sadly, I don't think I would describe the main courses as outstanding. I had mushroom linguine and it was a tad tasteless. I'm a vegetarian though so perhaps meat eaters would fair better. The rest of the family thought... More

Went for a revival lunch as we had intended to go to Felixstowe but the traffic was against us, so to the Plough . He chose a burger with chips and side salad and my main choice was salmon prawn and avocado salad. Took a while but no problem. His burger looked good, but he had more salad on his... More
