My wife and I were desperate to find somewhere decent to eat Sunday lunch so I hit the 'Near Me' search on my Trip Advisor app and, at the time of writing , The Plough Inn looked promising. It's a pretty building; festooned with well-stocked hanging baskets and has a good-sized car park.
The Plough could be considered a little off the beaten track but we found it fairly easily. It was a bank holiday and, although it is advisable to book, we'd arrived without a reservation. Fortunately, the Manager quickly found us a table.
At 4pm on a Sunday there were large family-sized parties mixed with couples and smaller tables of four - all contributing to a lovely atmosphere and background buzz.
Immediately apparent was the pristine cleanliness of the place. Not a scrap of discarded food or smudged fingerprint to be seen (no kids allowed, see?).
The main dining room is small but light and airy and very well appointed with new, or simply well-maintained, furniture.
Before long, our drinks orders were taken and arrived in good time. The menu is small and seems a little retro but is populated with good, wholesome fayre - we plumped for the three meat roast at £9.95. Despite it being very busy our food arrived within 15 to 20 minutes. Our oval plates were well-filled with a good thick slice of beef, lamb and turkey, roast and new potatoes and a good pouring of meaty gravy. Oh, and large Yorkshire pudding. The veg - carrots, cauliflower and broccoli - arrived in separate dish and were cooked al-dente, just as we like them.
All waiters and waitresses were smartly dressed in traditional black and white and were attentive and efficient and every vacated table was quickly cleaned and re-dressed. In summary: a very pleasant experience.
Our bill totalled a very reasonable £25. Looking forward to our next visit.
