“Dinner Was Calling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Exceptional food and lovely traditional beers - just what we needed after a day visiting local sites and attractions. Starters were very tasty and the main course consisted of some of the best meats our party have tasted. The fish pie was to die for (apparently). Not given 5 stars due to time we were left waiting to pay.

“Lovely meal”

I've visited the Plough Inn twice over the last few months.

Both times the food has been exceptional with a good variety to suit most people!

I would definitely recommend!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Lovely olde-worlde country pub in pretty setting with gardens. We turned up for an evening meal without booking and were lucky to get a table. It's very popular, so book at busy times. Friendly welcome and attentive staff. The food was of a high standard and very enjoyable. The Donningtons beer could not have been better. An all-round good experience.

“Excellent ploughmans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We visited for lunch on our daughter's birthday, not having been to The Plough for a few years. The food was every bit as good as we remembered - most of us had the ploughmans, while a couple had the chicken and ham pie. Everything was very good indeed. The ploughmans came with a good sized slab of creamy cheddar, some wonderful home cooked ham and a slice of pork pie, plus the usual pickles, salad and bread. Beautiful. The pie-eaters were equally impressed. It's a Donningtons pub so the ale (SBA for me) was of course excellent.

On top of this, the service was welcoming and prompt. Our kids are a bit older now but the pub seems to cater well for younger kids too. The setting is wonderful - we ate in the garden and found a nice shady spot under a tree.

So it was great - thank you, we won't leave it so long until our next visit.
