“Lovely Country Pub with supper beer and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Lovely friendly pub, backed-up by well kept ales and excellent food. We shared a starter and enjoyed our main courses. We were tempted by desserts of bread & butter pudding and panna cotta....the whole meal was excellent value. Should we return to the area we would definitely be back !

“Don't eat there on a night when the chef is out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The gas for both ciders was gone but the elderly barman wouldn't have it. I pay again for a beer as i couldn't drink the cider. The glazing starter platter was inedible due the olives not being drained off their brine. Chef's response? That's all the olives I have! The vegetables at dinner were over cooked and cold and the hake would have made a great insole for my shoe. If it wasn't for the professional and helpful lady in charge of the restaurant we would have refused to pay. She didn't charge us for the grazing plate and offered me a glass of wine. What happened to such a lovely food pub with such great beer and cider?

“Such a top pub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We finally visited the Plough when the rain stopped, and immediately regretted not going sooner!
There aren't many proper pubs left round here (something between gastro-silliness and spit and sawdust) but this is a top place and we get a brilliant welcome every time.
The food is good and even though there are only a couple of veggie mains, just ask and they will see what they can do.
If you like proper ale, you will appreciate the fact that they actually care about the beer here, which makes a change from serving decent ale at lager temperature!
The only downside is the instant coffee after your meal, but I'm sure we can persuade Debra and Kieran to buy a machine eventually :->.
