This pub is tucked away down a quiet street in Effingham in a pleasant rural location with good car park. My three sons joined me for a quick dinner, we were pleasantly surprised. The pub has been re-furnished so is in good condition, a fresh contemporary feel, and well kept. The food was... read more

Upon ordering and receiving our drinks (of mediocre kept beer) we were deciding where to sit when we were informed that all tables are reserved and that we were welcome to site out side. This was said in a condescending manner that made us feel that should you want a drink it must be with a prebooked meal. Having dined... More

Terrific food, even better atmosphere. Great variety on the menu and we could've chosen a whole host of different things.

I have been to the Plough twice now, through personal recommendation. Both times have been on a Monday night when they hold their "Ploughing Around on Monday" themed food nights. These vary each week see their website news section to see what is coming up. All the food is freshly bought and home made. The times I have been were... More

We were a party of 8 today at The Plough. It was a birthday celebration and we were amazed at how busy the restaurant was for a mid week lunch. Because we were of mixed ages and abilities at first we had some trouble sitting at our reserved table but we eventually managed it. We have been here before and... More

Very reliable quality food cooked with imagination and flair in this lovely country pub. There is a lovely garden to eat out in in the summer as well which works well with small children

The feeling of being fleeced is the one you are left with I am afraid. The business model here is GREED and not customer satisfaction. Some other reviews are happy others are not, the management favour their local trade and if your agenda fits the managers at the Plough then you may feel satisfied. We were unfortunate enough to hear... More

Made to feel welcome immediately, we sampled a new beer and discussed it with the landlord who took a genuine interest. The food choices were good and although this is a pub, they are most definitely not serving "pub food ". Both the duck and the trout starters were excellent, well presented and interesting. The trout came with pea pancake... More
