Excellent dinner, great food and atmosphere

It's been quite a while since we visited the Plough, this was a last minute booking for 3 x couples, we were given a lovely round table (very sociable for 6), the food was excellent and the service was very good, (cost was great too!) we'll be returning again soon!

The Plough is great for either a dinner or a Sunday lunch especially. Great value and the staff are friendly.

Delicious food and fantastic service. Had a lovely evening, fairly expensive but worth it I believe.

We ate here one Saturday with a mixed group of young children to adults, about 20 in total. The food and service were excellent and considering the size of the group all of the food arrived at the right time. The waitress was very good taking drink orders and splitting the bill.

Visited The Plough for lunch between Christmas and New Year - a total of 9 of us. We had a lovely meal - food was excellent, set meal was very reasonably priced and were not rushed, despite staying at the table for some time to chat. Highly recommended

Provencal mussels starter and sea bass with risotto main was the best and most memorable meal I've had for a long time. Four of us were sat at a round table - excellent and service also very good. Fantastic evening!

We were in the area visiting from the Midlands and wanted to eat before we set off on our 2 hour plus drive home. If busy car parks are anything to judge the quality of a restaurant by then this place must be 5 star, it was 3pm on a Sunday afternoon and it was still packed, we had arranged... More
