Thought the staff were very polite at the bar and the locals at the plough. The beer was nice although they didn't do food

Fantastic pub! Run by a young land Lord who is friendly and polite. Pub is always clean and well looked after. Always find it comfortable to drink and the locals are friendly. Better than then the Square n Compass up the road. As landlord needs to be more cheerful....😊

I wanted to have a cafe with my family on Sunday and the bartender (supposedly the owner) would not serve us. He stated that he is selling the pub and does not have coffee.

We had an amazing Sunday lunch here today....lovely to hear so many other diners complimenting the food too. We were made very welcome by the landlord and landlady and the pub was clean and cosy...loved the real fire! Would recommend the plough to others and will definitely be back!
