What a lovely pub. Very pretty setting, friendly welcome, and brilliant varied menu, with exceptionally good food. Had battered black pudding to start - fabulous moist black pudding in a light, crispy batter, with salad and chutney - almost a meal in itself. Husband had sea bass - his favourite choice - but excellent and plentiful served on a tagliatelle... More

Needed a really good Restaurant to take friends out to lunch with varied menu, and be sure that the meal would not disappoint. I had Bobotie, not often found on the menu in the U.K . Our friends had Crab au Gratin, and Sea Bass and my husband Fish Curry. All were really excellent. No room for dessert but a... More

My mate 'Harry' and I were recommended this place by a friend. What a fab recommendation .... The food was great, the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and the staff were so helpful. This place gets a 10/10 from me which is a high accolade indeed!! Such a lovely evening :-)

You know the phrase? You don't get a second chance to make a first impression? Yup, that's the one, small baldy chap behind the bar snubbed us on arrival in our attempts to gets drinks for our six guests prior to lunch.. Diverting staff away from me when trying to order drinks is nothing short if rude. Decided to eat... More

Apart from being very late because of an unexpected tour of Suffolk lanes and villages due to a road closure we had a very pleasant and delicious evening meal at the Plough Inn.The staff were friendly and helpful and the service was good.

I have loved this place for years. Despite it being a meat pub and my being a vegetarian they always did egg and chips or knocked something up for me. Alas! This Tuesday, 12th July, my birthday, I discovered they have changed. 'If it is nt on the board we do not do it'. Fine , except NO VEGETARIAN OPTIONS,... More

I have never been disappointed by a visit to the Plough. As usual the menu was varied and inviting. The only downside to dining there is that all the menu items are so lovely that it's hard to decide what to order. I highly recommend the battered cod and chips, and the creme brûlée is to die for! The old... More
