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.

An excellent meal. Beautifully cooked food, great service and a menu full of reasons to return. A real gem in the area that I'd recommend to anyone. I visited with my sister and seriously tempted to return tomorrow with the rest of the family.

Had heard really good things about the plough inn. All were absolutely true following our experience last night. 4 of us went for dinner expecting great things and we were not disappointed. Warm welcome as soon as we walked in, shown to our table and...given menus. A couple of minutes later drinks order taken. Served quickly and food ordered. Small plate starters of fish goujons and lamb sausages for 2 of us. Both were good and the sausages were really good. Some bread to soak up the sauce would have been nice. Mains of pork belly, calf's liver, sea bass and slow braised beef bourguignon. All came with well cooked accompaniments. The black pudding mash with the pork was a delightful find. Deserts of date sticky toffee pudding, malted dark chocolate tart and tiramisu, all obviously home made rounded the meal off superbly. All very pleasantly served by both staff and a nice attitude and approach by the landlady. Will definitely be back there before too long.More

The food is spot on; I’ve been for Sunday lunch twice - you can’t beat it. Great quality, crowd pleasing menu. Service friendly; slightly dated decor - but honestly the best in the area if not the U.K. !

Excellent food, friendly. Value for money but expect to spend £25-30 per head not including drinks - 2 courses. Lovely pleasant setting, restaurant very appealing.

We came here for my dads 80th birthday. What a brilliant choice. The owners could not have been more helpful, letting us decorate a beautiful private area. There were 12 of us and we had such a fantastic meal and a brilliant night. Nothing was...too much trouble and the chef made special dishes for two of us even though they were super busy. Very charming old world pub with a great atmosphere.More

This is the best meal I’ve had in years, maybe ever. Advertised as pub food, this pub offers restaurant quality food from a lovely village setting. The service was excellent and the only problem is that the secret is out and you need to book....In my opinion, the Chef and joint owner made the George at Stamford famous’, and this pub is that and more.More

We have visited a few times now but feel that standards have slipped since our first visit after this venue reopened with new owners. On our first visit we found the food excellent, I even had 3 courses which is unheard of ! However we...have now found that the menu is not as good or inventive as before just basic pub grub albeit well cooked. My main gripe and the reason for this review is that the place looks an absolute tip, both the bar and restaurant need a really good tidy up, I don’t want to sit eating my meal whilst looking at the unkempt bar containing at least 4 spray bottles of cleaning fluid, various j cloths, dirty glasses and opened bottles of wine on the counter, the bar area was the same with two opened packs of catering peanuts and cardboard boxes all over the bar counter. For goodness sake please delegate and teach your staff the art of tidying up which will also stop them from looking so bored. Our last visit has really put us off visiting again which is such a shame.More

What a superb venue. The Plough in Wilford is a popular venue for good reason, so book well in advance. A wonderful rustic pub in a small rural village, that offers a wonderful dining experience. The menu isn’t vast, but in my view that’s a...good thing, but it does cater for most tastes. We were a table of 4 and every plate ordered was simply wonderful. Sarah the owner is very cheerful and chatty who is happy to explain in detail each dish on the menu, to help you choose. Her husband is the Chef, who must be complimented for his skills in presenting plentiful and very tasty plates of food. We have friends visiting next Month and we were lucky enough to book a repeat visit, I honestly can’t wait.More
