Tasty food, romantic lighting, lovely staff - what more could you ask for a Saturday lunch? We arrived close to the kitchen closing but we were still welcomed with open arms and friendly smiles. The food - from a fixed price menu with good range of choices - was perfectly cooked. The pork was simply served with mashed potato and cabbage, but the flavour was excellent. The cod, so often bland, was delicious. Added to this was well kept ale and flickering candlelight making it an all round perfect lunch. Thank you... we will be back soon

This place has been on my list to visit for awhile. Excellent welcome and service and the food ordered from the December Specials Menu was wonderful. I am planning a return visit soon. Many thanks to all the team at the Plough.

Wedding anniversary lunch for six including two youngsters. Four had pheasant - finely cooked with roast vegetables - one beef, and the last plaice. Chocolate nemesis dominated the afters with ice creams for the over indulged. We chose from their interesting range of beers to drink - no wines since two of us were driving. All in all a very pleasant meal with friendly and tolerant service. One possible problem - was asked for a credit card to confirm booking with the possibility of a £30 a head charge on a no or short show. I refused and my booking was accepted - and will refuse again, even though this is our favourite restaurant.

Beautifully cooked food, wonderful service, gorgeous atmospheric surroundings. What more could you want. Worth every penny. Lives up to its excellent reputation. My pork was so tender it melted in the mouth. Amazing. Well done the Plough. Thank you for a lovely family meal. 5 stars all round

Thank Julie C

Returning again to our favourite restaurant in this part of the world we were not disappointed. Great flavours, service atmosphere the perfect venue for lunch with old friends visiting from Canada. Good to see standards have been maintained which does not happen often in this industry, sadly.
