Myself and my family enjoy this eatery. The staff are attentive, but need a regular presence on the bar. The setting is good and decor lovely. The only thing I would suggest, is the club sandwich I have, would cook the chicken more, and the microwaved bacon should be grilled so crisp, a basic club that all chefs can do,...

Fabulous Christmas dinner today at the Plough. Gorgeous setting, 6 courses each better than the last- particularly enjoyed the parsnip soup and the chocolate mousse- the petit fours had to come home! Attentive service with the balance just right. A lovely Christmas experience. Thanks to all. Would definitely recommend.

The rooms are vast and allowed for a lovely relaxing stay. The bath was wonderful - deep and hot. Dinner was excellent - a...

We visited for dinner and we're very impressed by the decor when we arrived. The dining room had a lovely feel to it and was very inviting. Service was prompt and friendly and we really enjoyed the Burger's we had. The chips were amazing, crisp and had a great flavour. For dessert we had the cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding...

Travelling down from Dundee we needed a meal, so the passenger looked places up, as we didn't want to stop on the motorway to eat, and found The Plough. The welcome here was warm, the chalk board specials looked very good, we both opted for the smoked rabbit pie, it was a proper pie, pastry top and bottom, the flavour...

This is one of our favourite places to eat! We live locally, and try to get there at least once a month (often for Sunday lunch - can't beat the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding!). Staff are fabulous - friendly, helpful and efficient, and the food is always excellent - great quality and beautifully cooked. It's equally nice to eat...

Heard lots of good things about this place so booked a table for dinner. Staff were very pleasant. Ordered bottle of wine, waitress corked & poured. Nibbles ordered if cauliflower pakora, arrived, batter soggy & chewy rather than light & crisp. Starter was OK. Both ordered Chicken as main course. I asked for no parmesan ( it stated parmesan on...

We were looking out for somewhere nice for a bit of lunch. We saw the menu and ordered both a starter and a main course! We enjoyed that so much we decided to have desert and coffee. We left 2hours and a bit later - fully satiated. In fact if we had not been travelling on to an event I...
