I had the best steak I'd ever had here. Good cut, tender, flavoursome. The service was unparalleled. We made some very odd requests, all of which were obliged with with a smile and an "of course" or "no problem" . I've made similar requests at different places before and they have never been received with such happiness to comply. Truly... More

Generally a good ambience but there is a shortage of really good places in the Bedford area. Some people rave about it but somehow it never 'quite makes it'.

Very pleasant evening with friends, looked after very well. Food was interesting as was the wine. However it is at the pricier end of the market. Hence a 4 and not 5.

It's been a week of the finest dining for us, with three exceptionally good meals enjoyed. Lunch yesterday at The Plough couldn't be faulted apart from the absence of sticky toffee pudding. This time we ate in the smaller room to the right of the bar/reception area, we hadn't even realised it existed. Quickly seated and menus produced our choices... More

We first enjoyed Martin's cooking at the Pheasant when I lived nearby . In spite of having to travel for one and a half hours to get to the Plough, it is well worth the effort and I visit whenever possible. A lunch of Dover sole this week was delicious and I look forward to our next visit. A favourite... More

This was a treat for my wife and myself from our next door neighbour. We had never been to The Plough before so didn't know what to expect but, from the moment we walked in the door, we realised it was somewhere special. There were lots of items on the menu that we liked and the food that we chose... More

Have just arrived in the nearby village and looking for a good place to eat on a regular basis. The restaurant did not disappoint and we will definitely go again. mt husband had the sole and i had the vegetarian option. the desserts were both excellent and the gluten-free apple and redcurrant crumble was superb.

This superb restaurant was recommended by friends who live nearby and we had such a good evening. I had phoned them to enquire if they catered for vegetarians and a friendly, helpful man assured me they would be able to provide me with something I liked. I chose the only vegetarian dish on the menu – the “wood roasted sweet... More
