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.

Really tasty. generous portions and great service. Would highly recommend and...look forward to going again soo.More

We were so lucky to get the last table for three people - and chuffed to bits we did!!! We all decided to skip starters and go straight to mains (we all had our eyes on the delicious desserts!) X2 ordered the roast pork and...I ordered the beef (which does normally get served pink but on request can be served more well done - I prefer pink!). We were also offered (extra cost) the mashed potato with truffle - sounded tasty so ordered a dish of that too. Not too much of a wait (restaurant was packed) and out came our fully laden plates with meat, HUGE homemade Yorkshire puds, roast potatoes and veg! Also a side portion of veg and a boart of.extra gravy! Extra sauces are available (horseradish etc). We all tucked in - and it soon became apparent there was no chance of us managing dessert as this was far too tasty to leave a morsel! Veg was cooked perfectly (hate over cooked limp mushy veg!) and the meat was perfect Best roast dinner for ages!More

Went to The Plough today for Mother's day and had THE BEST Sunday lunch! Absolutely gorgeous, decent size portion, meat was perfect and extra gravy which is big tick for me. Four empty plates and four full tummies for us. Definitely recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I just firstly want to say thank you to the owner for being so lovely to my dog. My dog is very timid and hid under a seat in the bay window . This was fine all the time I was eating but slightly less...so when I’m lying on the floor trying to coax her out. The lovely lady who runs this pub came out with some tasty morsels to help the situation. On to the review, I ended up coming on my own as my partner was ill. I’m a bit anxious at the best of times but want to give my dog some good experiences in dog friendly places. I have never been in here before but walked in and felt quite comfortable . The pub has a proper bar, friendly locals , and I was given a table by the bar with an offer to move f it was too cold. I ordered a coffee which was lovely and hot and quickly delivered. A twinkly happy eyed waiter took my order. Then I enjoyed people watching and reading for a bit. My meal was promptly delivered, it was hot , delicious and just what you want in a Sunday dinner. The yorkshires were big and fluffy and the roasties crispy and fluffy on the inside. The vegetables were delicious and fresh, I particularly liked the roast carrot and cabbage, all with tasty meaty gravy and a jug on the side. I had a nice chat with a gentleman while I waited for my food, and the people on the next table were very sweet helping herd my dog out. All in all, this is completely my kind of pub. It has a lovely community feel to it. I loved the bar, the people, the food and the service. I will definitely be back with my partner and a walk by the river afterwards. If you are reading this review unsure whether to go, I think if you try it , I can’t see anything not like. Cheers!More

After a pleasant walk from Morpeth we decided to try the Plough for lunch. We sat at a table for 2 and I ordered some drinks while we browsed the menu. I had a pint of well kept real ale and my wife a glass...of Shiraz. The landlord was very friendly and attentive as was his partner. We both ordered the lamb and when the landlord brought the cutlery he suggested we might wish to move to a bigger table if we wanted to spread out which was a nice gesture. The lamb was perfectly cooked for my liking (very slightly pink but melted in the mouth). They had rice pudding on the dessert menu and as it is my favourite dessert I had to try it. And it was delicious. I have never had rice pudding topped with melted chocolate (usually a fruit jam) but I would recommend it. We will definitely be back to sample other things on the menu.More

First visit to this wonderful, atmospheric pub for an excellent Sunday lunch. Warm welcome from the lovely landlady Cath who couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. All staff were excellent too. Food was beautiful- top quality, generous portions and very reasonably priced. Our visit...brightened up a dreary January day and lifted our spirits. Speaking of which, a very good non-alcoholic Doonbar beer was available too. We'll definitely return soon.More

A great place to pop in for a quick drink, or a whole evening. The atmosphere is always welcoming, the drinks very reasonably priced and the locals very friendly too. The owners are very attentive and welcoming and this is also a dog friendly pub...which allows those that can't get out because of their canine family to pop in too. When they were serving food it was always fantastic, and I am sure it will be again when it starts again. Great family run business which I am happy to support - please do too!More

Called in the plough about 6 weeks ago (haven't had time to review before now) We haven't been in for quite a long time as it did close down for quite a few years and just never really got round to it...we used to love...the food and atmosphere here Was really hungry while out with the dogs so thought we'd give it a go ...only one person sitting at the bar on a Saturday afternoon ? We were made feel so uncomfortable and totally unwanted it took the owner/barman a good 5 mins to come and serve us and how grumpy was he ?...we felt like we were sitting in a dentists waiting room scared to speak above a whisper Ordered 2 coffees and 2 jacket potatoes 1 with beans and 1 with tuna as we only wanted something quick...quick ? omg 20 mins for coffee and half an hour for potatoes and we were the only customers there apart from 1 man sitting drinking !!! £7 for tuna and £6 for beans...rip off...they were the worst beans ive ever eaten in my life i dread to think where they buy them from they were tiny hard tasteless and watery...i left 3/4 of my lunch as the potato wasn't cooked in the middle and the lettuce was brown round the edges, hubby called his tuna slop! it was 90% mayo and 10 % tuna it was that bad...not much change out of £20 for the privilege ...disgusting Making it worse i assumed it was the so-called chef who came into the bar from the back (very scruffy looking) complaining about the bookings he had for later that evening and did they realise how difficult it was for him to juggle cooking his veg in the microwave while doing other prep work ? really ? very unprofessional to whinge like that in front of paying customers ! Normally I would go and complain if my food isn't cooked properly but my husband just wanted to just get out of there as he felt quite sick after what he had eaten so I left the pub really hungry … NEVER EVER to return... Such a disappointment, but I speak as I findMore
