This is a place well worth a visit.
It gets quite busy, so worth booking a table.
Really good choice of menu, a stunning White Rioja and great service.
No doubt you'll enjoy it!

Visited the plough for Sunday lunch selected based purely on trip advisors reviews. There was 10 of us in our party including 3 children. We were shown promptly to our table and made to feel welcome by our friendly and efficient waitresses. The service we received was excellent and we were not rushed in anyway with the wait between courses just right. Everyone agreed that all our meals were spot on in portion size and cooked to perfection with a reasonable selection of vegetables and all arrived at the table at more or less the same time which in some establishments i have found lacking. The Plough as a cosy relaxing feel to it with old beams and rooms on slightly different levels ,one level is called the Potting shed. Will definetly return in the near future and would recommends this place without hesitation. Give it a try! you will not be disappointed.

Me and my family have been coming to the plough for the past two years, we love it. Nice country pub, relaxed atmosphere and amazing food! Best I've had in Derbyshire for a few years now! The staff are friendly and attentive. Definitely worth a visit! I will certainly be returning.

The Plough is still very much a country pub, and serves an excellent lunch. Proper homemade chips, tasty chicken pie and superb black pudding. All served with a well-kept pint of ale.

One small thing caused annoyance though. When a menu item reads "seared scallops" I expect scallops, plural. A single scallop seemed a bit mean.

Just been to 'The Plough Inn at Brackenfield' today for lunch with my family. Lovely old pub with low beams and plenty of traditional features in a rural location. Great choice of food on the standard menus and special boards. Food was very good indeed! Quality of food was spot on with great sized portions. Staff were incredibly helpful & friendly (think we were served by the Landlady) The only reason why I did not mark this pub 'Excellent' was the length of time we waited for the food. We were not in a rush however at least you know the food is freshly cooked to order.
