“Delicious pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went here with two friends, two of us have one of the daily specials sea bass fillets with hoisin noodles which was sublime, it was so good I was disappointed when I had finished eating it, my third friend had the chicken caesar salad which she enjoyed also, two of us had the lemon curd eaton mess, the only criticism we both had was that there was hardly any meringue eaton mess should have more of same otherwise was lovely, coffee was excellent, lovely old pub good atmosphere and the service was very good and staff friendly.

“great pub food excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We tried the plough and flail on Sunday of the recent bank holiday weekernd and we were very impressed. The food was tasty. My husband had the Fleetwood fish and chips with mushy peas which he said was excellent and I had the cheese and onion pie - it was delicious. The otheer members of our party had the Sunday lunch option and they thought it was fantastic. Service was good, food piping hot and served promptly. The staff couldn't do enough for us. All in all a great meal out. The whole visit was topped off by an unplanned visit to the Alpaca farm across the road which was delightful.
I would highly recommend the Plough and Flail just make sure you book though as it appears that lots of people think highly of this venue

“Time well spent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My fiancé and I decided to spend our sunny bank holiday Monday at the Plough & Flail today.
We have recently had a baby and find it quite difficult to go out sometimes as not every pub can be considered child friendly. We phoned in advanced to book a table, which turned out to be an excellent idea. It was almost impossible to get a table inside the pub and also the many tables out side were taken. The outside space, on a side note, is excellent too, with a nice playground and widely spread green areas for children (and also dogs) to play. We got seated fairly quickly and our drink orders were taken straight away. Even if the pub was really busy we did not wait long for our food, which was yet excellent quality. The menu seems to change daily due to local products being used and the portion size was decent, the prices okay. I was happy to see that they had child-friendly facilities like a changing room.
Overall Plough & Flail is a gorgeous pub with friendly people and quality food and I would definitely go again.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Plough and Flail. We are really pleased that you found us child friendly (and dog friendly), we do try to cater for everyone. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your meals - even on a very busy Bank Holiday!! As you said it is advisable to book for the weekends as we do tend to get full quite quickly. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you whenever you would like to call in.

Kind regards

“First class with a welcome and service to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I insisted early evening on a Friday.we wanted somewhere different to our usual haunts and having driven thru Mobbelynso many times we decided to follow the signs from the main road.we will be doing so again!
We were greeted with a smile and everyone who served us did so with the same good humour and style.We had 2 courses including fish and chips which are cooked 3 times to be extra crunchy! We were offered about ten different sauces to go with it.Never had that in any restaurant anywhere.The best evidence is that by half seven the place was packed with the buzz of conversation.There is a large number of outside tables which will do very nicely when the sun shines.We are delighted to have found a somwhere new .Well worth the drive.It is clear everyone associated with this pub has a real pride on their work
