My hometown pub is under new management- it is with gratitude that I can report what good hands it's in. Not only is the ale condition and selection top draw, the landlord a convivial, warm fellow but they've ramped up the music offering too. Perfect laid back vibe for a week night but also a good buzz at weekends. Love this pub- lovely staff, good pies, keep up the good work.

Our visit on Saturday the 1st of March at approx 6pm was marred by the fact that when buying a resident from the albemarle centre with learning difficulties we were charged £2.55 for a half pint of lemonade. Is this extortion or prejudice . When questioned the young barman aggressively replied don't blame the middle man. Our party of six were regular customers of the previous licencsee and this was our first visit since her leaving , it will be most definitely be our last !

It is with great sadness that I write this review as the Plough has been my favourite pub in Taunton for many years. It used to sell the best selection of well conditioned real ale in town. Sadly no more. The quality has gone down hill over a number of months since the owner dispensed with the last experienced cellar man who knew how to look after the ale. The youths in charge now are very pleasant but have no idea at all when it comes to ale. It is a great shame as this is still a great pub for meeting friends. Unfortunately however I am now very reluctantly having to vote with my feet as the ale is consistently flat stale and lifeless. The other real ale regulars have moved on to wine, cider or lager. I think I will have to move to another pub. The new landlord is a very friendly and affable character but sadly he knows nothing about ale. Until he employs someone who does, there is little chance of improvment.

The meal was good but £8.75 for a very small portion of pie and mash ? Home made ? Pukka may be! ! !!!!????????????? but not made on the premises ? Also ordered at 7.10 pm whilst almost empty and did not get until 7.50 pm rather a long time to wait for just a pie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also the DJ was excellent but her crew were just plain rude, would not take requests, only stuck with there playlist, no flexibility, also the roadies totally arrogant no flexibility at all, Taunton likes at least a small amount of say in what they listen/dance to !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Absolute BOLLOCKS, do not have these here again, listen to your audience !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
