A group of us went to celebrate a birthday The staff were pleasant and helpful,we noticed the young waitress take out some cushions to a couple sitting outside on the garden chairs. The food was hot and tasty and reasonably priced. The only disappointment was the dessert menu was a bit depleted (we were fairly late) Altogether a most enjoyable... More

Had a great evening here, all the staff very friendly and the food was great and good value for money. I great cosy atmosphere inside with a good beer garden out the back for when the weather is more appealing. All in all a great pub to have a good meal and a pint weather inside or out!

I went there on Saturday evening and found a nice, welcoming, cosy atmosphere. The food was very good and plenty of it on the plate - you can't go home hungry! A great country pub with good food - our thanks to John and Tina.

We decided to try the Plough for lunch today. (we eat out for lunch at least once a week and hadn't been there for a long while). I selected the combi menu with whitebait, breaded mushrooms and potato skins with bacon and cheese which tasted revolting . artificial, and left a nasty taste. When I bought this to the attention...

Went for a family meal, food very disappointing. Fish over cooked, sausage baguette was cold sausages. Curtain at entrance to pub rear door covered in mud, mouldy conservatory, dirt around toilets. Appearance of waiting staff unkempt
