We went for Sunday lunch to celebrate my Birthday. We arrived at 1.50pm for a 2pm lunch. Our starters were served within 30 minutes but we had to wait until 3.15pm for our lunch. The roasts were average and did not taste fresh. I would not recommend going there for Sunday lunch now which is a shame as we have... More

Don't get me wrong, I love the food, and the service was friendly, but the ACCESS ROAD...is dreadful. POT HOLES like a 3rd world country. I doubt there is a road in China that bad. We have visited regularly over the last 5 yrs and love the pub, the food, and staff but will think twice before visiting again as... More

It was my first time here and I, along with my family, were disappointed from start to finish: - The staff forgot about our drinks which arrived after our starters. We were given a bottle of tap water with no glasses to drink out of. We were then asked if we wanted ice and we said no. Glasses then arrived... More

Used to be a bustling restaurant/pub. I can see why its slipping theyno longer serve a big plate of food. The pie was served with peas in a small dish and no more than a heaped tablespoon. The fish batter was soggy. The small salad was no more than a side dish. The 'steamed' puddings were obviously premade and not... More

On the lovely sunny day we had on Sunday 22nd January, we (that's 2 men & 2 women who are polite, respectable adults in our 50's) arrived at about 12.30pm & went in to order drinks. There were no other customers at the bar, everyone was sat at tables. We hadn't booked a table because we were only intending to... More

Very poor service and only 4 dishes on the menu, so clearly no proper chef. Food came out all wrong, 2 mains and a starter, and then we had to wait for replacement in one of the mains. Food got cold. We then complained and got shouted at by a very nasty man. Gone downhill very fast.

Visited the Plough, have been a few times in the past and always very impressed. Sadly there was little atmosphere as it was very quiet considering it was a Saturday evening but in fairness as the Manager pointed out it is January. The service from the waitresses was excellent, we ordered from the "specials board" and they were special with... More

Popped in with my wife for lunch and was blown away by the quality of the food. I had ham, eggs and chips and my wife went for the warm chicken salad. Mine was the best ham, egg and chips I have had for a very long time and my wife loved her salad, which is saying something as she... More

Very surprised by the recent negative reviews. Returned after a disappointing visit some months ago. Heard the pub was under new management and decided to give it another go. Received a lovely warm welcome, great choice of daily specials, food was much improved (now home cooked and very tasty), etc. Spoke to the new manager who has great plans for... More

We come here most Christmases for a meal with family members. The reasons we keep coming are ... (A) the beautiful surrounding area, which is perfect for a post lunch walk. (B) the lovely ambience of the traditional decor - thankfully with up-to-date lighting and heating! (C) the friendly and helpful staff, and (D) the good food - we've never... More
