You can not turn back the clock, we used to go to this pub 45 years ago, all has now changed, it is now a smart restaurant. We were visiting family who still live in the area and they had booked a table for Sunday lunch ( 8 of us) and had a very agreeable meal. They were very busy... More

Visited The Plough for a late afternoon meal. Had heard some good things about it, so was looking forward to it. Had the beer battered fish and chips and to be honest I've had much better. Fish was ok, but chips were pretty tasteless and slightly under cooked. Tartar sauce was also not particularly nice and tasted like it was... More

Booked last minute for Saturday night and they were very helpful and squeezed us in. Great meal and great service. All four of us had lovely starters and perfect main.

We went for a late lunch with friends to the Plough Bar and Restaurant yesterday, it was really good, we have been many times for either lunch or dinner and we are never disappointed,good selection of food, and lovely friendly staff, with a great relaxed atmosphere, we will be back sometime very soon. Keep up the good work everyone.

We have been to the Plough a few times now and have always found the experience to be excellent. Wonderful food at good prices and pleasant and helpful staff. If you want somewhere for that that special occasion then this is your place

My very fussy (22 weeks pregnant!) wife & I had a lovely meal there on the spur of the moment and were very impressed. The choice of dishes wasn't overpowering or overpriced and the service was very good. For a gastro Essex experience it was very reasonably priced in a lovely contemporary setting & great ambience.

Booked a table last minute on a Sunday for some late lunch/early dinner. No problem getting a table for 4. Service was lovely and made sure we had a comfortable table due to me being pregnant - really nice touch. Really reasonable prices I'd say for a nice pub. £13-£15 for a Sunday roast, and it was lovely. Huge Yorkshire... More

Four of our party had a roast and said it was lovely - me I tried a fish dish which was great. The... More

We visited with 10 friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. Early January is an odd time to eat out, so we had no trouble booking for 10, and the restaurant wasn't full. The service was pleasant and efficient. Foodwise, as well as the usual roast offering, the restaurant also offers a fairly healthy list of alternative main course dishes. Starters... More
