“Great food!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Like everything about this place except the distance from home!
Food is excellent, service is friendly and efficient - the atmosphere is great for lunch or dinner and the whole dining experience is worth the extra few £. Highly recommended, winter or summer.

“Stylish pub restaurant fairly pricey”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Had a fairly good lunch here. Service quite good. Comfortable place. good selection of wines. Nice view of garden.

Food a little variable. My partner found the steak to be very small, although well cooked. Other items were rather better.

Best to book.

“Good restaurant lovely food but slightly overpriced and difficult to contact”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Tried this restaurant having been recommended by a family member.

The restaurant has some really nice touches, reading glasses at the bar for anyone that forgot theirs. it is a very relaxed pleasant atmosphere, we went for an evening meal, but looks like it would be a lovely setting for an afternoon meal.

We booked the table via the website and although tried to call to see if we could get a later booking, only able to get an answerphone. Having said that on the evening we were not rushed at all.

The food was very nice but I feel slightly overpriced in the case of the starter 3 pieces of Tortellini for £6.50.

Overall a nice restaurant that we will probably revisit.

“You can always rely on the Plough”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

The Plough can be relied on to provide tasty,good value food. Their lunchtime menue always has something differant to be tempted by, whether you go off the menue or the daily board which offers good value for money. Pickled Herrings followed by Suet lamb puddings last week,both of exeptional quality. Have had better Whitebait though.
The draught beers are well kept with excellent choice and the wine choice very good.
