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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My wife and I went for breakfast this morning 10 Feb, WOW, it was brilliant. High quality produce, well cooked and very, very tasty. Top marks guys, very well done to the Plough Team. More people should give this place a try.

We came across this pub by chance and we weren’t disappointed! Super friendly welcoming staff and the food was the best pub food we’ve had for a very long time! We will definitely be back for another lasagne and curry they were simply delicious! Thank...youMore

Had an amazing Christmas dinner yesterday, everything was fantastic. Crispy roasties, perfect veg, tasty turkey and gravy with all the Xmas extras, generous portion served piping hot. Absolutely the nicest dinner I've had for ages and retained it's heat so I could enjoy it instead...of just wolfing it down before it got cold . The room was nice and toasty and I imagine at night time it is very cosy and Christmassy. And Charmaine is just the nicest person and landlady, she is always so warm and welcoming. She makes that extra effort to make our visits special and we always appreciate her kindness. If you haven't been before I would recommend trying it, lots of home-made dishes on the menu and reasonable prices too. Good sized hot drinks too which is much needed on a cold day! Has always been a favourite of ours and will continue to be. Thank you Chef your Xmas dinner was delicious.More

Had a beef Sunday lunch, overpriced & underwhelmed. I can’t remember when I’ve had 1 so bad. It was £14.95 for 3 under cooked roast potatoes, 1/2 a sprig of uncooked broccoli and stringy bought in beef. Frozen mini Yorkshire pudding, (not even an aunt...Bessie’s 😂, an ice cream scoop of mash & a stiffing ball. Tasteless Garvey. Felt like I was at my nans in the 90s. Very disappointing especially since it gets good reviews! Didn’t take a picture because I couldn’t believe what they actual thought was ok to serve! Staff must be embarrassed bringing that crap out to customers! £3.50 for a cup of tea is an outrage really! We won’t be going back. Could have & should have gone Toby carvery for a tenner 😂😂More

Just returned from a lovely afternoon meal as a family of 4. The service and food was absolutely amazing. The menu was Italian which is the reason we visited for the 1st time. We didnt have to wait long for drinks or food. Big sizes...and piping hot and we all finished with empty plates all round. The lady who served us was welcoming and friendly. Other people took dogs into the pub which didn't bother us. I would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning again 😊More

Some of the worst food I’ve ever experienced. The claim of fresh food and the freezer for ice cream is nonsense. My child’s chicken nuggets were clearly from the freezer. The bolognaise ‘meat’ tasted very much from the freezer too. As for the ‘Italian’ pizzas,...they were inedible. Burnt so badly it tasted vile. Tasted like it had been scorched on a dirty greasy oven top. When the waitress asked how was the meal and I replied ‘not good’, she didn’t ask how or what was the matter, but rather stated ‘oh that’s not good is it?’ As she walked away with the near full plates of bad food. To make matters worse it is expensively priced as well. I shall not be returning.More

Called in for lunchtime meal and the Plough Inn ticked all the boxes. The inside was clean, well spaced-out and plenty of character. The welcome was warm, sincere but not overpowering. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. A really pleasant experience. Will call...in again.More

The owner used bad language and cocky attitude to intimidate a member of staff which is totally unacceptable and unprofessional, I suppose this is why they cannot keep staff very long! Which is a shame because the pub itself is lovely and we having been...going for 35 years in the summertime, but never again.More

The food was delicious & the staff were attentive & helpful. The only criticism is that the restaurant area needs refurbishing; the tables & chairs need replacing as some were quite stained.
