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.

Love this “proper pub”. We often make The Plough a midway stop on our dog walk from Ightham and the Landlord Ben is always very welcoming, taking his time to chat and give the dogs a treat. The food is traditional pub grub all cooked by Ben, portion sizes are huge and the food is always fresh and tasty. The chips are amazing! They have a great gin selection too and lots of local beers. The pub garden is lovely and the surrounding area is beautiful with lots of footpaths to explore.

We found this small traditional pub down the country lanes and were glad we did. The welcome from the Landlord was great and the food we had (it was a Friday and so fresh fish was on the menu) was well cooked and the portions did not leave you with much room for pudding...which we just about managed!! For those who like their beers there is a good choice of the less "standard" beers. I have always thought that a good indicator of a pub's standing is the state of the toilets and these were immaculate. Will definitely go back if we are in the area again.

The first thing to say is this pub is that is very much about word of mouth and the personalised touch, so don't be put off by the lack of online presence! I got the impression it was quite a "locals" pub but the lady working behind the bar and the landlord made us feel welcome. I was very impressed that despite the landlord being the only chef, the full menu was still available (there are more options than you can view online currently). There were pies, burgers, pizzas and fish on as it was a Friday. After we'd finished the pie we were asked if we would like dessert and were given 4 options. It is all cooked fresh to order so you do need to allow time but its worth it! I'm definitely going to book to try a Sunday roast this winter and hopefully the fire will roaring away next time. The only slight downside is the parking. There is room for about 8-10 cars in front of the pub, but you will either be blocked in or blocking someone in so need to be ready to move your car. The pub is at the top of a hill so although there are a few on road spaces, it is a bit challenging due to the mud and rocks at the side! I'm looking forward to visiting again.

Travelled from afar to take an elderly mother out for a nice pub lunch. Booked in advance for 4. When we arrived we were told there was no chef that day and that there was a limited menu. Booked for 1pm food arrived at 2.40pm and the pies were still luke warm. They agreed food and service was not good and refunded 2 of the meals. Should not have taken the booking if there was no chef. Will not be going back.

We visited the Plough for Sunday lunch, over 20 of us in a walking group visiting for Sunday lunch. Ben the owner is a straight talking man who says it how he sees it. Don’t be put off by that at all, Ben wants everyone’s experience at the Plough to be perfect. We arrived as planned mob handed, the pub was warm and cosy and Ben and his staff gave us a warm welcome. Even though we all arrived together on mass we soon had a drink in our hand and we’re seated ready for lunch, which soon materialised. Everyone got what they had ordered including the vegetarians and vegan who were served up with Bens own recipe nut roast. The nut roast and all the other meals were plentiful and very cooked. Ben was continually asking if everyone was ok and enjoying the food. Thank you Ben and the team for such a lovely experience. Everyone left the pub with full bellies and a spring in our step. We will be returning again thats for sure.

What an AWFUL experience. Was out for a walk on a Sunday with my family and dogs, and came across this pub, we walked in to an awful damp smell, but thought we would stay as there was seating outside, was greeted by whom seemed to be the landlord, what an unpleasant man he seemed, grunted at us as we walked in and seemed to busy talking to his locales, took 10 minutes before he would serve us our drinks. We ordered a couple beers and soft drinks, once we had settled down in the back garden, we noticed some of the beers we had ordered had gone flat, so went back to let him know, only to be told that there was nothing wrong with the beers and if we didn’t like it we knew where the door was. Also whilst sitting in the garden we saw TWO RATS!! After this we all got up to leave and tell the landlord which I believe his name was Ben, he told us not to be stupid and that we was seeing things. An awful awful experience all round, we will not be returning to this pub and in our advice we would recommend anyone else giving it a wide birth!

Discovered this pub a couple of weeks ago, and decided to try the Sunday roasts with some friends. We weren’t disappointed- generous portions, well cooked, tasty food and good value. Excellent service, friendly staff and the landlord made us feel very welcome. He even parcelled up the leftovers to take home for the dogs! A real ‘locals’pub and will definitely be returning. !

A warm welcome and amazing home cooked food await you at The Plough. My husband stumbled across this gem of a pub while out on his motorbike one day and we both went to have lunch a week later. Everyone is so friendly and the Landlord, Ben, always comes out to welcome us. We've been several times now, even though we live 18 miles away! The food is superb. The fresh fish on a Friday is a must have. We suggested friends went there as they were looking to try somewhere different and they loved it too. You won't be disappointed.

Cosy, friendly and a really decent pint of Guinness. I’ve come to really like this place; always a friendly welcome and I’ve always had really good service. Not many pubs like this around now unfortunately. I would highly recommend stopping by

We'd been for dinner previously - Michelin starred cuisine it is not - but good traditional food cooked well and amazing portions. We decided to return for Sunday Lunch as the landlord told us it was wonderful - and IT WAS! Massive plate, 5 veg, 5 or 6 roast potatoes, Yorkshire pud, and tons of meat - I had lamb and my family had pork (with great crackling). Massive gravy jug came along and - not seen this before - a gravy boat of cheese sauce to put over the veggies. Everything tasted lovely, was nice and hot and we were all stuffed at the end! 3 of us, a pint each and all for less than £50! I cannot recommend this place high enough (unless you're vegetarian and then there wasn't much to choose from on Sunday!) Landlord and waitresses were very friendly and efficient.
