It was our first visit to this restaurant after having been recommended to visit by friends. The décor is smart and contemporary with a lovely round table for 6 which included a bay window seat. The staff were attentive and pleasant but not pushy or overbearing. The food was delicious with us... read more

As the title says... Been visiting for a while now as best restaurant in Brentwood in my view. Went along before 5pm to get the cheaper menu as good value for money. Starters (prawns/calamari) great, mains (fish & chips/scampi) excellent. Beer and wine equally as good. Kids meals fantastic. Great restaurant with great ambience, staff and surroundings. My one gripe... More

Our favourite restaurant in the area. You book a table and keep the table all night which is great. Food is always fresh, very tasty and well presented. The owner and all the staff are professional and give a warm welcome. Great place with children too. Good value too.

Good table and service. Food was good, had the Sunday Roast, but not exceptional but good value. Live locally so gave it a try.

We eat here on a regular basis. The Menu has a range of offers and there is always something to tempt you. Food is of good quality, service is friendly and generally very good for a gastro pub. It's decent value and we use the restaurant for those nights where we fancy nipping out for a change of scene, either... More

We popped in for a midweek meal, thinking it was a pub (we live in the next village), however it's much more of a restaurant (with a small bar). The interior was elegant and looked very new. It was the best food I've had since moving to Essex last year, I had pea and chorizo risotto with a beautifully cooked... More

Was an adhoc lunch with my family although did book up the day before as had such good reviews thought it would be wise. We were impressed by the environment. It was very clean and contemporary. The staff were welcoming and extremely efficient. The toilets were clean. We had a baby in our party who won the show. Struggled a... More

I have been last week to The plough and I really enjoyed my meal. I had the yummy tempura prawns to start and a ribeye for my main. All my family enjoyed the evening. The food was excellent and beautifully served. Could not find fault and cant wait to return again.
