My wife and I and our friends visited the Plough on the evening of Friday 23rd May. We arrived about 6-45pm and the place was very busy. We were lucky in that a table became free within about 5 minutes of arriving. We ordered drinks and then from the Menu we ordered 3 portions of the battered Cod with fries, mushy peas and tartare sauce. Also one portion of the Grilled Tuna Steak with red pesto and garlic butter.
We were warned that due to their being very busy the wait would be about 50 minutes. Not far short of this the food arrived in 45 minutes. However the cod if it was cod was almost flat, just like the Findus portions from a frozen packet. It was not produced as we had expected with pieces of fish dipped in batter then fried. This was in our view frozen portions with batter attached, resulting in the flat look and asking the question as to if it was cod or a substitute. The mushy peas were exactly what it said on the menu and were delicious, as was the Grilled Tuna Steak, but there was no sign of the red Pesto in the minimal portion of Garlic butter. Whilst the pub was very popular at times the noise from the customers made it hard to hear each other speak. Maybe next time we will choose one of the famous pies and try it on a less busy night.
