We went for an anniversary meal. The menu was good enough to suit every taste. We had loaded potato skins, a mixed grill, cannelloni, and red velvet cheesecake. The food was delicious, the service was very good. We would recommend "The Plough" to people visiting the area.

I went here a couple of weeks ago with the ladies of my Lunch Club. We varied in age from early 60's to middle 80's. A couple of us were vegetarian the pub coped easily with all our needs and brought out some really interesting and tasty meals. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing seemed to be too...

I would like to say that myself and my family enjoyed our lunch and time spent at "The Plough" on Saturday afternoon nothing was too much for the staff even though a private party was on, they still catered for our needs, nothing was too much trouble at all! Well done and Thank you again.

I've been to the Plough numerous times - it's a favourite of my Mum's for Saturday lunch. Today there was a note on a blackboard outside that the "restaurant" was closed. Can't rate it any higher when no food on offer.

We always try to appease all our customers, even if resources are stretched. A very unfair review here and slightly naughty in wording as the board didn't say 'No Food'. It said 'Restaurant fully Booked', which conversely was the truth. The reviewer says he comes often on a Saturday. He would know therefore that The Plough can be very busy... More

Visited with my husband and 15 year old son. Very helpful and friendly bar lady. We ordered but sadly my first vegetarian choice was not available. We all had starters, mine a lovely farmhouse vegetable soup. My husbands main course of gammon was enormous as was my sons cod and chips - managed to beat them both! My choice of... More

We recently visited The Plough and used it's camping facilities having just bought ourselves a campervan. We only stayed one night but the welcome was so lovely, we will certainly be visiting again in the near future. The camping field was basic but perfect for what we were looking for and there was a few other people with caravans or... More

Went for a last meal with our local family before heading back to the USA. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, making the whole evening a delight! We were a large group and weren't rushed! The food was excellent!! There is also a large garden with kid friendly toys! Will certainly return on our next visit!!

We visited friends in Dorset a week ago, spent the evening in the beer garden here (I recommend the fish pie) and liked it so much we went back for breakfast! The staff are friendly and efficient; the atmosphere is relaxed and warm. Dogs are welcome in the garden and bar area. Veggies are catered for too. We will be... More

My young family and I visited the Plough at Manston after being highly recommended by my grandfather. We travelled a fair distance through beautiful countryside but was well worth it. The staff were very friendly and service of the delicious food was excellent. I hope to return soon and sample the live music evenings. I highly recommend to all ages.
