Discover the very best in village pub food and drink at The Plough. The fantastic menu created by our talented team of chefs, includes classic pub dishes with a twist along with a great range of grilled steaks, burgers and comforting pies and puds. No room for a big meal? No problem... we have a varied snack and sandwich menu for a quick lunch. If you're feeling a little naughty then our dessert menu has something for everyone's tastes, including sharer sundaes (you don't have to share!), freak shakes or a traditional slice of carrot cake. In the extensive beer garden we have garden games and a bouncy castle to keep the little ones entertained (when the weather allows).
