“Great olde world pub”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The pub is tucked away between houses and the A414 but don't let that put you off, it's quaint , great atmosphere a quality pub. The food is usual pub grub but all freshly cooked and we'll cooked the chef knows what he is doing, thoroughly recommended for lunch or dinner it's a very enjoyable experience

“Great little find! Definitely would return...”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We were looking for a venue to host a business breakfast meeting. The staff at the Plough were so very, very helpful in accommodating us.

Prior to the event, the communication was superb. This meant that we didn't need to worry about last minute hitches etc.

On the day, they had everything set out beautifully for us with a roaring fire to great us upon arrival.

Food was fab and all served nice and hot. Tea and coffee refills were offered regularly.

Staff were really attentive and out of a series of meetings held, this is the nicest venue we have visited!

Thank you to Bill and the team!!
