First time for us at the Plough for supper with friends. It used to be a friendly local country pub with good food. It has now been updated with the current trendy shabby chic look and the prices have gone up accordingly. Our meal was ok but did not taste as it was advertised on the menu, very disappointing.

We ate here for the second time today and really enjoyed it. The pub has a very friendly, casual atmosphere and the food was excellent. To start I had the salad of pear poached in sloe gin with Brighton blue cheese, which was delicious. For the main course I had the roast beef which was one of the best (if... More

Beer's well cared for and food is simple but dependable. Staff are just lovely. Jazz on the lawn is great in the summer, but it's a cosy locals pub in the winter as well

We have been going to The Plough quite a few times over the last year. Having now been disappointed on 3 separate occasions by the food, I think that it is time for a break. On this latest occasion, I choose the ox cheek. Though the stew itself was not bad, there was far too much meat which could not... More

Everything that is right with English pubs. Friendly, homely, warm and a great selection of draught beers and ales. Loved the food - excellent quality ingredients but traditional with a twist. We will be back!

This was our third visit in three months (visiting family in the area) and we will certainly go again. There was a warm atmosphere with a good mix of customers and a buzz of conversation. The staff were welcoming and the food was excellent - what more could one ask of a pub?

this was chosen based on reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was very tasty - two of us had rabbit - had not had this for a long time and was reminded how good it can be. There were vegetables with all the dishes but we were glad that we had ordered a couple of extra veg dishes... More

Ate here midweek for a lunch with friends after a long walk around nearby Ranmore Common and Polesden Lacey NT. Mysteriously, this part of Surrey seems to be short of decent gastropubs. This one seemed to get good reviews on Tripadvisor, so we booked ahead. Probably unnecessary, as there were still a few available tables available, but the pub was... More

We chose The plough based on the good reviews and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and cheerful. I just wish we lived nearer!
