“Great service and value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We came to Ploughmans for my mothers 70th and it was fantastic!! Everyone enjoyed the meals and the fact that all meals are a set price was great for group bookings....no trying to divide dollars. We were treated to a special since it was my mothers 70th which was a great surprise for all. All meals are the same price which may have you thinking they might me 'pub meals' however they were nothing of the kind. Really nice setting...very happy...thankyou Ploughmans

“Solid pub food. Eat on Tuesday..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Tuesday night is eat two meals - pay for one night which makes their $25 meals far more appropriately priced. Our two meals were a small sirloin steak and lambs fry with bacon - the option of adding salad or veges and chips or mash. Perfectly acceptable pub food. Plain and nourishing. Only downside to this place was staff sweeping up and cleaning tables whilst we ate. In my view all cleaning should await the departure of patrons.

“Lovely English Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This English Tavern was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which was of a very high standard, tasty and well presented with good variety of choice. As we visited on a winters night we were unable to enjoy the beautiful garden setting but look forward to returning here again and dining outside. We would highly recommend this lovely place. The
staff were very friendly and helpful.

“Lovely Cottage feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

It had been years since I had dined at this Restaurant, so decided to go back and try, I was welcomed in, and seated and then a lovely young waiter served us for the evening, was wonderful to see a young man servicing us and he was professional at all times with a wonderful manner, the food was $25 for every main made it easy and cheap desserts at $10 each, over all was a lovely evening that I enjoyed.

“They are listening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Great prompt service, working hard to make sure we were happy ( guessing they have listened to some of the other feedback) the steak was good, the lamb shanks too and the kids polished off the 2 kiddies meals... which is rare for my kids... The kids fish bites where very nice... Real fish not the processed stuff the kids meals normally get. They also have special days for those on a budget, like 2 for 1 mains on a Tuesday..and with most mains only $25 it's good value...will be recommending to friends
