We came on a Monday as we know weekends and evenings get busy. Nice pint of Wadworths 6X to get us in the mood and we went straight for mains. My shoulder of lamb was excellent and the 'liver' and 'ham egg and chips' went down just as well. The owners and staff were friendly and very helpful. This is... More

There's not enough words to describe how amazing this pub is! The food is always to a high standard and is very well presented on the plate. Some might say it's over expensive, but wouldn't you rather pay that little bit extra for more on your plate and better quality? The roast dinner is to die for! You just try... More

My Husband and I enjoyed a nice romantic dinner the first weekend of February. As we have many dietary stipulations (we are healthy eaters and Pescetariens). As there were just a few vegetarian/Pescetarien (fish) options, we felt a bit uncomfortable but decided to ask if we can have the dishes cooked in a more healthier way e.g Baked (rather then...

Another excellent meal at The Plough Inn, beautifully cooked scallops for starters, followed by sea bass on a bed of smooth potato mash enhanced with onion and then the most heavenly pavlova. My husband had a very juicy sirloin steak on the bone followed by marmalade bread and butter pudding which he said was delicious. Very attentive staff, very nice... More

a nice place to dine, just out of town but not to far to cycle or dine with friends in the evenings, a very straight forward menu, no jargon, good service to, does get very busy so you need to book a table.

I have been here twice and each time had the pie. It is amazing. The price is a little high so wouldn't come here every week but definitely on the odd occasion and would have the pie every time.

We were staying in the area for just 4 days. Our plan had been to walk with our dogs during the day and try different pubs/restaurants in the evening. The first evening we tried The Plough Inn because it was within walking distance, and we received a warm and friendly welcome for both us and our dogs. We were so... More
