I happened on the Plough quite by accident, and found myself in a proper town tavern. Lots behind the bar, a dozen ciders (Somerset) some cracking local real ales, home-made pork pie, yesterday's Guardian etc etc. Mine host is an affable giant of a man by the name of Bobby, whose wine knowledge is off the scale! A delightful pint,... More

Turned up half cut, perched on a stool, and drank yet more beer (excellent) and then headed for the scotch. Staff unbelievably accommodating albeit used to middle aged men who have had a 'long lunch' and now need to just fade away...great little hideyhole and spent a very happy few hours drifting into the abyss. The good news is that... More

I returned this evening when going to Taunton to meet my wife off a train, it is conveniently close to both the station and the cricket ground, my last visit was at the end of the cricket season. The landlord,... More

Quality little pub near the train station in Taunton. Visited after being at football with the lads. Had a lovely atmosphere, friendly bar staff with knowledge of the local ales & ciders on offer and a real character. Will definately be visiting again!

Had a very tasty Dutch pancake while my beloved enjoyed a ploughgirls lunch. The bar is a step back in time , with floorboards,log... More

Popped into The plough last evening for a few post dinner drinks. Lovely to see a pub with a good selection of beers. Staff were very welcoming as well :-)
