As we have recently moved to the area we were searching out new places to eat as we prefer to eat out most evenings. We decided to try The Plough in Clanfield as it is local, only to find a self righteous pompous manager scowling at us as we approached the bar. Our original intention was to have a drink at the bar while we decided what we were going to do food wise. We bought our first drinks and I honestly thought that we had done something wrong as this man peering over his glasses had no manners and almost in a childish huff asked 'yes?' instead of hello. We were dressed smartly, very quiet and had only walked in so I can't imagine what we had done to deserve this behaviour. This behaviour continued so we drank our drink as fast as we could and didn't bother eating there. What a horrible yet totally unnecessary experience. Perhaps it's a local pub for local people...take our advice try somewhere else! Good manners cost nothing! Bad manners turns customers away and I shall actively discourage people to not go there should they suggest it! What a horrible experience!
