The Plough in Congresbury has great beer and an extensive food menu. There are always different guest beers. The pub has many interesting areas to relax typical of an old English pub.

My Mum and I come here regularly for the Barnsley chops. They are beautiful. Consistently excellent every time. Lovely accompaniments of salad, chips and peas. Can't beat it. Staff always really friendly and helpful.

Good value, hot and friendly service. Popped in for lunch after a nearby shopping excursion. First time in a couple of decades. Traditional, old style, proper pub with a bit of character. Beer out of hand pumps, soda drinks out of bottles, not a multi-head. A decent choice of food options. An honest review of the food, from a qualified... More

I love this pub, we like to visit for lunch and we can take our dog inside too. Always receive a warm welcome. From the menu I can thoroughly recommend their T-Bone steak which is always cooked to perfection and the ham, egg and chips. Why The Plough is currently rated 9th out of 15th on places to visit in...

Nice local pub, decent beer selection and they do good food too. Dog freindly which is a plus, and there is a massive beer garden at the back.
