great food in a family friendly pub

Food was delicious (although a little pricey). Good service even for large groups. Ideal for families and large groups.

We came here because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. I had the pheasant and confit wrapped in cabbage. The confit consisted of at least 10 pieces of shattered bone. I was constantly finding pieces of sharp, shattered bones in my mouth. I had to pick around in my food and spit out pieces which is fairly unpleasant if you're... More

My wife and I are looking at moving to the area with our two boys and wanted to check out the local pub. Walking into the pub we were greeted with lines of walking boots and wellies and a bustling pub full of a local shooting party waiting to sit down for lunch. Having ordered a beer each I got...

Dropped into the Plough for an impromptu Sunday lunch. We were warmly welcomed and found a table even though we hadn't booked. The pub was busy and had a cosy atmosphere. The menu was interesting and had a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The service was prompt and friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our... More

A charming and popular pub with a good range of fresh, high quality dishes. The service was friendly, and efficient. The desserts in particular were excellent. Ample parking was an added bonus.

We ate lunch at this restaurant on a Saturday, the food and service were very good. There was a good selection of dishes on the menu and the food that we ordered the sea bass and a burger where excellent.

After a glass of crisp , chilled Rose' , we scanned the extensive menu and settled on... More

Great place for a spot of mid-week lunch. Surprisingly busy highlights the loyal and worthy following it has attracted. Great service, friendly hosts and nice drink options make for a very welcome environment. More of a restaurant that pub but retaining traditional style. Men is all fresh, made on site, nothing remotely frozen anywhere - except for delicious home made... More
