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.

When I visit the Plough I always feel that I have won the lottery the experience is that good. It is an authentic Excellent English Country Pub which Michael and his family have worked hard to maintain. The Beer and food are always of high...standard. The staff are courteous and Michael is a gentleman.More

Been meaning to come back here as it’s a short drive away but unfortunately won’t be. Sat outside for lunch - at first glance all looked lovely. After a closer inspection it was clear the tables had t been cleaned at all that day. It’s...a very dog friendly pub which is great but there was dog foul near us so I went in and politely asked if someone could move it before our food came thinking they would be unaware and it was from a previous customer’s dog - a lady came out (landlady?) announcing it was probably her dog and, rather than taking it away, flicked it into the shrubbery (a few inches away from where it was originally) but thought that was acceptable! Our food order came out incorrect (not the fault of the person who ordered) but no apology from the staff member about it being incorrect, she just rolled her eyes and sighed like she was doing us a massive favour! Basic customer service was all it needed. Such a shame as this place has so much potential but was ruined by the attitudes of the two members of staff we came across and basic hygiene standards. I wished we could say it was perhaps an ‘off’ day but doubt it very much.More

Previously my wife & I had only popped in the plough for a drink & nose around, so yesterday we decided to go for lunch. 2 mains, 2 pints of Cider & 2 pints of Bass & all for £37 , amazing. Both of our...meals were cooked from scratch & were delicious. The staff are friendly & the outside seating area is comfortable & really well maintained.

We arrived at midday, it was sunny outside so sat at a table with my toddler. I presume the landlady came out and wanted to move us to a different tavel when they all seemed to be the same size. We ordered food at the...bar and for some reason they'd missed the order as an hour later it hadn't arrived. It wasn't hugely busy. We chased it up and didn't get any response. 10 minutes later the food arrived and our order was almost shouted at us. There are no highchairs for babies/toddlers which I find odd in this day and age. There is a baby change though. The food instead was nice enough and value for money. Part of the order was missed off but when mentioned was quickly rectified. Would I go again? Sadly no, they say first impressions count and I'm afraid I won't be returningMore

Such a pretty traditional place serving great food at affordable prices. Beautiful garden and so picturesque in the sunshine. We had a lovely ploughman’s with a chilled glass of rose - excellent quality and service. What Country pubs used to be ! Thank you

We called at The Plough today during an enjoyable hike in the spring sunshine. The female Bar Person greeted our entrance by saying to her colleague and in front of customers, "We'll have to have a sign saying, 'No masks allowed in here'." Up to...that point, we were having a lovely day. For what is supposed to be the 'hospitality trade' and at a time when Covid is still prevalent, I considered the remark to be unacceptable. Such a snide, crass remark was unprofessional, unwarranted and distressful.More

Came for the first time today for lunch. First impression is how lovely the outdoor area is, sadly it was raining so we went inside. We were welcomed by possibly the friendliest welcome ever! Had a really nice lunch and a few chilled Proseccos. The...pub has such a warm friendly atmosphere. We will most definitely be back. If you want freshly cooked food, amazing service in a cosy welcoming pub with the nicest staff, this is where to go!More

A great British pub in a beautiful English village. Fist visit to this nice village pub, great range of drinks and good pub food (our could have done with being a bit hotter). Nice ambiance, clean snd well kept but really needs a car park....I can’t imagine what the roads like in the evenings at weekends.More
