We have been to The Plough on numerous occasions and have usually found the food to be pretty good and the atmosphere congenial - except when it gets overcrowded at weekends and the staff become over stretched. On one or two occasions the attitude of the manager, 'take-it-or-leave-it', has jarred a bit, but we went back regardless. Unfortunately our last experience, a booking mix-up at their end and his refusal to deal with it, left a sour taste. So, that's it.
The problems arise as a direct result of their policy of packing-in as many people as possible at popular times, and having several sittings, to the point where the poor servers and bar staff, however willing, are simply unable to cope. And the manager is unable to manage.
