Lovely afternoon

We went to the Plough for Lunch with friends yesterday, had a really nice lunch, good menu and lovely staff. We will definitely be going back. Keep up the good work everyone. We are so lucky to have this restaurant /Bar in our area.

Quite pricey compared to other local restaurants, but the portions were a good size, the cooking was excellent, and they served the beer perfectly. Certainly one for the future.

Been her a few times and really like the atmosphere of the main restaurant. Excellent food to be had of a very strong menu. Smart and clean with superb service.

Great food in a lovely atmosphere, set price lunch menu was good value, there was a large selection and any starter could be made into a main, the staff were attentive and did not rush us out, we were a party of 15 which didnt pose a problem. The wine was reasonably priced as well.

Not the sort of place to go if you want to eat out on a warm summer's evening. Place needs to open some windows or getting some air conditioning installed. Service wasn't much better either.

Our waitress, Rebecca, was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and she made sure everyone was well looked after throughout the evening. We even came home with a souvenir birthday menu, laminated, with birthday wishes on the back - a charming and... More

Four of us had Sunday lunch here yesterday. As we walked in we were overwhelmed by the smell of garlic. We all like garlic but the strong smell was most off putting. We ordered four roast dinners and it seemed that there was garlic emanating from everything on the plate. The roast potatoes seemed worse. It must have been in... More

Delicious seafood lunch. Started with Moules Mariniere, generous portion for a starter and all in perfect condition. None of the anaemic-looking specimens that sometimes appear nowadays. Delicious sauce, bread to help mop it up, spoon to make sure and finger bowl to clean up with. Main course of prawn and calamari linguini could have been a little more generous, given... More

Not quite a pub vibe...definitely more of a restaurant now. Very good menu and well presented food. White chocolate brownie was a great hit on our table.
