Lovely Italian food. Very authentic but very expensive. Nice as a special treat. The staff were attentive, the food, as mentioned was very very good; however the wine was expensive. Not an every day kind of place, but recommended for a special occasion.

We ended up here as the other pub in the village where we were staying was closed for the evening. My pasta although tasty was undercooked for my liking, I'm not a fan of "al dente" my husbands tuna dish he said was good, as was our friends pizza and chicken livers. The calamari starter was like rubber! Wouldn't recommend... More

Went for a business lunch. There were three of us. I wasn't aware that it was Italian as I had never been before. This really is a wonderful place. I had to change a bottle of wine as it was off (always a bit embarrassing) but this was no problem with the owner. All of the wine is imported from... More

This is our local pub restaurant which we love because the food quality is generally very high. We love the large beer garden with sunny outlook and the staff are friendly. It ha on the expensive side for wine though, considering its relatively remote village location.

My son and I visited for a quick pint but we're so impressed by the friendly welcome and the obvious relish that the locals were showing to the pizza, that we stayed for a pizza ourselves. This proved a great decision and the pub turned out to be owned and run by a family from Naples who imported all their... More

Easily the best pizza in the area with a real log oven with fresh dough. If you like bad pizza sure stick to Pizza Hut or generic dull expensive pizza express. The server peroni and craft larger too.

Thank you for taking time to leave us your positive feedback. With so many pizza outlets and bars claiming to produce authentic pizza, we are thrilled when our customers appreciate our original artisan produce. We are passionate about our food and you obviously are too, so hope to see you again very soon . More

We liked this place albeit it is a little eccentric. We arrived to signs at the bar saying the place was short staffed and to be told there was up to an hours wait for food. Whilst ordering our drinks suddenly we were told we could order food and all was well. What we ordered came quickly: a pulcinella and... More

Thank you for your great review and for describing us so well. It's nice to know that the quality of our products shone through for you. Our pizzas are our pride and joy and go very well with a cold craft beer as you describe. We have a new range of extremely interesting Italian craft beers and ciders now, so... More

Today my friend and I arrived here for a pre booked Sunday lunch. No table was reserved and the place was half empty but they tried to seat us next to a family with badly behaved noisy children Reluctantly they gave us another table. No one came near us for quite a while and then a half hearted waitress came... More

Your review comes as no surprise to us. Once again a very unfair review from customers with a preconceived idea of what we should be as pub in a rural location. Your review is absolutely shameless and whilst you are entitled to an opinion albeit subjective, it appears you have a problem with your perception.of events from the outset. Firstly... More

We have been going to The Plough since it opened under it's current owner Raphael. I think it is really authentic and love the way they are true to their roots and serve the food in a genuine Italian way. It is nothing like the chains for Italian pasta and pizza restaurants so expect it to be different and far... More
