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.

Second visit to the Plough and we were a little disappointed. Staff I have to say were lovely and helpful but the menu was a little limited . Maybe because it was a Sunday? The food was fine but we were charged £4.20 for half...a lager (Amstel) and £3.55 for a soft drink. Way way overpriced drinks which has really put me off visiting againMore

Delicious food and drink, very good value as well. We had the 3 course special and enjoyed every course, all washed down with a fabulous Argentinian Malbec. Staff helpful and friendly. Highly recommend and I will definitely return.

My wife and I decided to go for an impromptu Sunday lunch, we contacted the Plough Inn to reserve a table for two. The person answering the phone was courtious and pleasant to accommodate my request. We had the set priced menu which had a...good selection of dishes to choose from. The food served was really, really, good. The presentation was top drawer and the food was cooked to perfection. The staff were exemplary. When the bill was presented we were pleasantly surprised at the prices for the food and drinks. We could not have asked for a better experience than we had at the Plough. Thank you.More

Booked a table for 19.30 to have the tasting menu. The food came out really quickly and we’d had all the 6 courses in less than 11/2 hrs! The food was lovely as was the service but the strange thing is, we were asked to...move downstairs to the bar as the dining area closes at 8pm!!! If we’d been told this on booking we’d have gone earlier. Maybe this should be mentioned when booking?More

My daughter took me to the Plough for lunch for my birthday as except for once it’s always been a positive experience there and we’ve been lots of times as it’s our local. Unfortunately it was very mediocre this time and disappointing if I’m being...honest. We both thought that the menu lacked variation especially if it’s a light lunch you want. There were no main salad dishes at all to chose from which isn’t great. There was music playing which is always nice to hear in the background but not this time as one track had lots of bad language in it which would be totally unacceptable for children to listen to. Even I didn’t like it and I swear like anyone else! We will give it a miss for a while and see if they improve. Sad really as it’s nice to have somewhere to eat on your doorstep.More

Just returned from here with a group of 7...mixed ages. Was told on arrival that out table wasn't ready...they suggested we go to the bar....which is down 2 flights of stairs ..they could clearly see the man with a walking frame...told then to just sit...and wait....20 minutes after out booking, we were shown to a table....in a sweatbox of a side room...it was very hot in there!!....²⁵ mins later, someone took our order....25 mins later, the food came. Food was fine. Waited another ³⁰ mins for someone to come and ask us if we wanted desserts and to remove the plates....waited 15 minutes and dessert menus arrived....waited another 30 minutes and still no one came to take the dessert order ...we just got up and left ....possibly the worst service I have ever experienced in 40 years of eating out. Never again!!!More
