We had such an amazing meal here! The service, food and wine were all outstanding. We went with friends after a recommendation and our experience certainly didn't disappoint. We will definitely be returning.

Our first time visiting this delightful restaurant and not Our last . Tony and his team were so welcoming and made us feel at home straight away . The food was outstanding, and the choice of the side dishes were unreal . You will not...leave this resturant hungry . Steak was on point and the sauce was perfect . The desserts you must leave space for as they were just as good . Thank you we will see you soon.More

Delicious food, my duck a l’orange moist and really tasty, as were all the main courses our group of friends had. The included wonderful selection of vegetables were a great touch. Good atmosphere, great service, and whilst not cheap as ever you get what you...pay for - highly recommended.More

We ate here a couple of nights ago and were very impressed. The menu was extensive and the food outstanding. Beware! the portions are huge and the selection of vegetables that accompany the main course just kept coming. The waitress was chatty and had extensive...knowledge of our interest in horses. All in all a perfect meal.More

We’ve been coming here for years, it just never disappoints, had the rump of lamb which was absolutely delicious, plenty of food and such good value for money. Staff are so consistent, so professional and friendly. This will always be a firm favourite and long...may it continue…More

Outstanding food, service and experience. Tony and Gina are incredibly friendly and genial hosts. In addition to a solid classic French inspired menu are excellent specials. All in all, faultless.

A group of 12 of us (6 couples) came to Newmarket for a weekend of racing. My wife and I had visited The Old Plough a couple of years previously and really enjoyed our visit. So, I recommended it to the group this time for...our Saturday evening meal/drinks. Despite COVID restrictions, the pub accommodated us with little if no inconvenience while still following guidelines. The food is EXCELLENT. Ample on every meal with the extra vegetables supplied with each dish. Everyone in the group thoroughly enjoyed the evening with ZERO issues concerns. I would HIGHLY recommend a visit to The Old Plough.....it's 4-5 minutes from Newmarket in a vehicle. Thank you Gina for looking after us all.....we will be back!More

We just enjoyed a fantastic takeaway from the Old Plough to celebrate a birthday (no counting) while in COVID-19 lockdown- beautifully presented with an unusual level of care. Booked for a specific time and ready on the dot! Main courses- filet mignon, stroganoff and teriyaki...salmon all absolutely delicious (steaks perfect as ordered ) with veggies as good as if straight out of the kitchen. Puddings were just as good. Amazing service and food. Thank you very much!!More

Have used the Plough for many a Sunday Roast before the lockdown. The takeaway roast they are serving now during the lockdown is just as good. It really is worth the trip to collect it. Very professional the way the food is loaded into your...car. When you get home the food is still piping hot, depending where you live.We have the Turkey and Beef with , roast potataoes, new potatoes and plenty of veg and Yorkshire. It really does save all that washing up and certainly tastes better than home made. The gravy is worth a mention. Well done Plough, always good to eat in but takeaway is a pretty good substitute.More

I don't really want to review this place because it has limited seating and if I review it too well, I won't be able to get in next time. The food is probably the best bar food I have EVER had and its not expensive....I absolutely love the Beef Stroganoff. All mains served with 8 veg - not on your plate but silver service. Please do not book as I want to be able to get in next time !More
