Came here for Sunday lunch, had a main and a dessert which were both lovely and didn't have to wait too long to be served. However the staff were a total let down to the place, they didn't smile at all and came across as rude and as though they couldn't be bothered.

This establishment has recently changed names and has reverted to being The Plough. I took my kids for lunch today. My daughter was 18 today so it was a birthday treat. I order the crab and prawn tian. It was not good. I think the crab is crabsticks. It was wet messy food. My daughter had the garlic mushrooms which... More
