Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited The Plough Inn at Marsham on Wednesday 27th March, My Husband had the Showcase of Bawdeswell pork, I had the Horseshoe of gammon & Our son had The King of Ronnie Margherita pizza. There was a little wait for food but that's absolutely...fine as then you know it's all freshly cooked. The Manager (I assume) came over and apologised for the wait explained the cookers needed to warm up which again is absolutely fine. I'll start with the décor...There were a lot of quirky decorations/pictures on the walls which I thought were great (Not to everyone's taste) but we liked them and as a family chatted about them until our meal arrived. The staff were very friendly, polite and welcoming. Now the meal well I can honestly say it's the best meal I've had in many years, The gammon actually had flavour that wasn't just salt, the onion rings were absolutely gorgeous and the chips were also lovely. My husband said he really enjoyed his meal and stated it was definitely worth waiting for! And finally our son said the pizza was "absolutely gorgeous" his words. The only shame was we didn't have room for dessert. Would we recommend The Plough Inn ABSOLUTELY without a doubt.More

First time visiting and would definitely visit again. There were 14 of us and a baby celebrating an engagement and 2 birthdays. We mostly had the carvery but 1 of the group had something off the menu. The carvery was the best I have ever...had. Lots of choice and all hot and cooked to perfection. Was impressed that there were butchers chipolata sausages instead of the tiny frozen ones that are normally offered in other establishments. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. Go and try it, you won’t be disappointedMore

There were good and bad things about staying at The Plough. First, the good things: the shower in our room was awesome, obviously all been updated very recently, and plenty of hot water at a great pressure. Being newly refurbished, the room was very fresh...(although the smell of paint was lingering). There was a mini fridge in the room, which was handy for the bottle of wine I had brought, although I did have to bring a glass up from the bar . We had a burger in the restaurant on our first night, which was excellent. For breakfast the next morning I chose Eggs Benedict, which was very tasty, but unfortunately they had run out of muffins and so I had to have toast instead, which wasn’t quite the same. And now the not so good things: I found the bed very uncomfortable, and woke up with an aching back on both mornings. We had not been given the room we had asked for on booking, but by the time we realised we had unpacked, and didn’t feel like moving rooms so did not say anything. as the room is newly refurbished, there is still a little to do to finish off. For example the walls are bare of any pictures or anything to give it character. There was also no mirror of any kind in the bedroom. The room was cold at times, with the heating not being on until late afternoon/evening. There was only one shelf in the bathroom which had been fitted over 6 feet high on the wall, so it was very difficult to reach! The only other thing I could fault is that the fire safety warning on the door had no assembly point written down, so in the event of a fire, I can only hope we would find the right place to be. The fire door on the landing was also continually wedged open on the new carpet, which is a little concerning. Overall, I think I’ll stay was okay value for money, not sure there would be enough to tempt me back again though.More

Had a carvery tea on a Sunday. Good food, quick for table service for drinks and ordering the food. Carvery had a few bits that had run out so we had to wait but these were then brought to the table in a separate bowl...so that was appreciated. Never came to take a dessert order so we paid and left.More

Extremely friendly pub with a great menu choice for adults and kids at a reasonable price. The adults in our party had the carvery which was great value and very tasty, and the kids loved their pizza and they let us take away what they...didn’t manage. Service was brilliant. Very clean, plenty of parking and you can book on open table. Thank you for a great meal/visit.More

We booked this place last year, a couple of weeks before our trip we called to ask for a little information on the room and asked for a table and chairs as we like to play cards, not a problem from the owner it will...be sorted for you. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Sean who could not do enough for us he checked our room to make sure all was in place.Then Toby the manager popped in and gave us a tour of the newly refurbished bedrooms a true gentleman. The place was just fab. Then the restaurant, beautiful food with friendly staff , Sophie being one of them, so helpful. I would definitely recommend this beautiful Hotel.More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my sister & friend in a newly renovated room. The pub has just had an amazing refurbishment, it is gorgeous. The staff were so welcoming, and went above and beyond to accommodate us, including bringing us a table for...our room so we could play cards! Our room was very spacious & decorated beautifully, plenty big enough for the 3 of us. I like to thank Sean and Sophie for looking after us so well, and Toby for showing us around the next rooms having a make over. Breakfast and evening meal were lovely. Thank you allMore

We had booked a table for 7 people for 1.30 a week in advance as we were going to scatter our wifes granfathers ashes after a family meal , BUT that was not to be thanks to the PLOUGH We arrived at 1.15pm to find...our table was not ready so we all got a drink, one of our party could not stand for long due to health issues and did not have anywere to sit so he had to sit in his car and wait (NOT ACCEPTABLE) So we waited and waited and waited at this point it was 1.55 and no sign of a table. They really havent a clue on how to book tables in or customer service we were just ignored!!! In the end we said we were going to leave as we were fed up with waiting and being asked to move as there was no room to move at the bar they did give us a 50% dicount off our drinks but no apology The thing is you book a table well in advance for a special occation at 1.30 and if your let down your not going to be able to get in anywere else on a sunday lunch time so we had to settle for fish and chips at cromerMore
