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!

I had the pig cheek which was very nicely cooked, my friend had the duck which she found a little dry with an uninteresting polenta and chorizo sauce. The service began well, polite and attentive when we were ready to order, however after taking our finished plates they never returned. I was expecting a dessert menu and eventually a bill... More

We ate here as the pub we were staying at didn't serve food. Had eaten here before and the food then was excellent. Good choice of real ales, excellent food, not cheap but good value and very friendly staff. Would eat here again if in the area. George R. Gloucestershire

They happily served us in the garden, as inside was fully booked. Worth the detour. Beats the atmosphere of other local 'country pub' carveries. Knowledgable on wines, helpful, friendly and efficient.
