Immaculate restaurant with too tempting a menu! Great choice with traditional favourites on a contemporary twist Fascinating fish dishes. Waitresses and owner, nothing too much trouble for both food and drinks with lovely atmosphere amongst staff and eaters. Book a table as we did as they get packed out from the minute they open to serve food! Busy but fully... More

Lovely meal on Sat early evening with our 2 kids. Food was fresh and local, kids menu was simple but quality .... not something deep fried from Iceland. Quite gastropuby but not so gastro it's too much. Enjoyed it and would recommend

As a late walk-in, we were treated at the plough like any other guest not at all like an annoyance! The food was bliss, and very reasonable priced. It arrived looking like a work of art and tasting like one too! Beautiful decor on the inside really sets this place apart from a standard pub to look at, but like... More

I suspect this pub's popularity stems from it being the sole pub recommended by Forest Holidays nearby and it's no 1 position is result of it being only place listed for Duloe. It was fine, friendly helpful staff and pleasant surrounds but the actual food was a bit average given the prices and the description that gastropub suggests. My sons... More

A well balance menu, plenty of choice and super friendly staff. For me the Crab and Prawn cocktail was missing something, A for effort and presentation, fantastic pork belly main, good portion and tastes great. Cherry sorbet to finish, simple and perhaps a little expensive. The local food is to a very high standard it seems, worth the visit but... More

We were staying in Duloe so the Plough was the local pub. We always used to come here before it was refurbished and made into a gastropub, and it used to be good pub food. We ordered our main courses and, because I was having fish pie, which they said was freshly made, they did say it would take a... More
