..you don't get it yet; The Plough has the best food and service for many miles around. It's not inexpensive but is worth every penny. We've visited a few times over the past few years and the consistency is perfect; they are always on their game. Just occasionally it's possible to turn up and eat in the cosy and authentic... More

Another first class meal. Not the roast they had on the menu but partridge and fish. Always a pleasure to eat at The Plough, can't wait until we return.

We joined friends for lunch at the Plough, a place we've enjoyed in the past. I had made a mistake and booked the table online for the wrong week (!), but they sorted it out on the spot and it was no problem. The food didn't disappoint - just lovely, with lots of choices even on the fixed price menu.... More

My family and I took some visiting relatives to the Plough as we'd been impressed here before - and we were not disappointed. The food was perfectly cooked, succulent and flavoursome. The staff were very friendly and effective, and the ambience in the restaurant was as lovely as ever.

I am lucky because The Plough at Bolnhurst is a mere 10-minute drive from my home & it's always possible to get a midweek lunchtime table for 2 when it isn't Christmas or Easter. Today we arrived at 1pm & we didn't leave until 3.30pm, having had delicious food (including a superb crab thermidor for my first course) and savouring... More

We often visit here either for lunch and dinner, with great staff and amazing food. They offer a lunch deal which is great value for money, we have also had a Sunday roast which is lovely! We always are made to feel welcome and it's a great place to eat whatever the occasion.

My wife and I had an excellent lunch here at The Plough. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We had superb food from the "fixed-price" menu which kept the price reasonable (£15 a head for 2 courses). I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Thank Simon B
