“Never again!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 via mobile

We went for a evening meal and were proper disappointed.The food was horrible, tasteless and the completly untrained staff didn't make ot any better. The cappuccino was made with coffee pads and tasted just old.They weren't served with saucers and biscuits, but grabbed on top by the staff and brought over. (Ever heard from a tray?) The same with the wine (there was only one choice) which were poorly poured-the wine dripping on our cloths before we even drank it. Training for the staff is a MUST in this restaurant.Its good enough for a cheap pub, but not for restaurant.Its really a shame because the plough was once a really good restaurant.Anyway, we won't go there anymore.
