“Lovely old pub”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I came here for lunch and had a really good meal. Looking at some of the other reviews I am wondering if we are talking about the same place. The Plough is next to St Margaret's Church and is a small 'village' pub. My friend had been here before and recommended it .We were not disappointed.We had a very pleasant lunch in a lovely atmosphere.The landlady was friendly and welcoming,the food good and the whole experience well worth repeating. We will definitely go here again and will recommend it to friends.

“Catching up with friends.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We visited this pub with friends but was disappointed with the food. As a vegetarian I was looking forward to the cauliflower cheese bake but told that this was already off the menu at 8pm. Hence had the vegetarian stir fry which was very bland and also the chicken stir fry that was also ordered was very dry and bland as well. However the deserts we ordered stickey toffee pudding, spotted dick and chocolate fudge was excellent. The waitress was very grump and appeared very rude and at one stage suggested we should have have ordered two puddings instead when we mentioned how much we enjoyed the desert. Her mannerism was unpleasant and made me feel slightly uncomfortable...... It's a shame as we won't be going back..

“Birthday surprise”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My husband booked a meal for my birthday. When we arrived we found they had put a banner up to say Happy Birthday which I thought was a very nice gesture.we ordered our food and waited a little while for it to be cooked.I had ordered a chicken and leek pie which came out with FRESH veg and new potatoes, the pie had huge chunks of meat and excellent pastry.My husband had a burer which was enormous but very tasty.The service was friendly and the cost of the meals was very good. We have travelled all over the world and had meals in 5 star hotels but value for money and quality you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better than the Plough Ifield.
