We had a family get together here for lunch. The staff were friendly and very helpful about the children, even calling them in for us when it was time to eat ! There is an interesting menu with smaller options for smaller appetites. The children played outside in the nice play area and we could see them from our table in the conservatory. The beer is always good here with a decent choice of real ale.

The food was delicious once it had a arrived - but it was a 40 minute wait and no real apology or explanation.
The play area outside was lovely - but the fallen apples had wasps in them, which is not really safe for children.
The waitress was charming, but the Landlord appeared harassed and was rather blunt when taking orders.
That said we will go back - but maybe when we have more time.

Had a very enjoyable evening at this pub last night! Great atmosphere with live music from 9.30. The restaurant was very busy. There is a comprehensive pub grub menu with vegetarian choices. My husband had a mixed grill and I had a rib-eye steak, both meals were delicious. Good choice of real ales and cider. The landlord and staff are very friendly and cheerful. If you want a traditional country pub experience then you will love it here. We will definitely be back and thank for a lovely evening!

The Plough Inn has a caravan club certified location attached and has live music on most Saturday evenings. I decided to take the motor home up for a couple of nights away on a sunny weekend.

We found the pub lively and the landlord and staff very helpful and friendly. We would normally cook in the van to help keep costs reasonable but the food was so good that we had Saturday lunch and dinner as well as Sunday Lunch. All three meals were of excellent quality and reasonably priced.

Although a fairly small pub there was a live 3 piece band on later in the evening. The atmosphere was great. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable weekend visit and we will definitely return.

I went with my family and partners for family get together and wish we had not chose this place,the food was expensive and non exsistent and they did not have some produce, and all the landlord was interested in doing was checking on the Tennis on TV. Dont know why he did not buy tickets and go as with his prices can afford.Never again.
