We were blown away by this local pub, we were only there because it was the closest to the B&B we were staying in and so wondered down hoping to find something to put us by for the evening. What we found was this menu with so much choice, filled with dishes i could have spent all night trying. What... More

I have been wanting to visit here for so long after countless recommendations but due to having a young baby have only just got around to it. We were so impressed! Lovely, warm and welcoming environment with staff who couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. The food was absolutely delicious and the chef was flexible with a few special... More

We visited following a recommendation from family friends. We visited quite early on a Friday evening without booking and got lucky to get the last table in the house for 4 of us. A very warm and cosy atmosphere in a traditional style pub with ample parking. The gentleman behind the bar informed of the ordering process: all starters are... More

A friend and myself on a golf trip to the area stayed in Sparsholt on Sunday and Monday last and booked a meal at the Plough for the Monday night on the recommendation of the Guest House owner. Having both eaten Sunday lunch we only required a snack that evening so we visited the Plough for a couple of drinks... More

Six friends met for dinner for the first visit to the plough. The service was excellent and we all ordered different things from the menu. Without exception everything was spot on. Can recommend the slow cooked lamb. Lovely busy atmosphere you will best to book a table. Will definitely return.

There was so much choice on the menu boards and the portions were huge.. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We did not have to wait too long for the food to be cooked

A warm cosy pub with a great menu to select from. Only 5 minute stroll from Little Mead B & B. Highly recommended.

We were staying locally at Lainston Hotel and wanted a warm pub evening meal. The Plough Inn provided just that. Warm fire, friendly staff and good service. The food was great and we really enjoyed it.

I returned after a bad experience before. I wish I hadn't bothered. Service was slow, and abrupt. Food was ok. It was like they were doing you a favour serving you... Made to feel very unwelcome. I was willing to spend more money on a dessert and coffee, but just wanted to escape - so didn't spend the money. I... More
