“Nice food, shame about the service.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I went there with friends, we all the same main course which was delicious. We had to ask if we could place our order (we'd been there well over half an hour). The food came quite quickly and was delicious. The service was poor however. We were never asked if we needed another drink and had to go to the bar to order more. When we asked for coffee (nobody enquired as to whether we might want dessert), we were told by the surly young waitress that her shift had finished and she reluctantly went to order them for us. The pub was very quiet, so I think the staff could have been more attentive. Shame.

“extremely accommodating”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

After visiting the Pickled ploughman I have to say 'what an utter delight it was'. What a breath of fresh air to enter such a friendly and welcoming environment. As a wheelchair user i am faced with many challenges. The manager was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome, nothing was to much trouble. We was quiet taken back by his extensive knowledge of the menu. Food was out of this world. Prices were very reasonable. Would most certainly recommend to all.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Went into have dinner with a couple of friends a couple of days ago and we has such a nice time! I had the bangers and mash and it was great, and good value for money. The staff were very charming and the manager, who served us at the bar and occasionally served our food was very accommodating and friendly to us and catered to our every need, as we were fairly fussy customers! Great place inside too.
