I went to the Plough for Sunday lunch. We had already asked if they could have a pie ready for one of our group, as the pies are simply fantastic. We had roast beef and the pie was to its usual high standard. The beef was Sirloin and was lovely. The vegetables were lovely and there was plenty of them. For desert you cannot beat the Eton Mess............fantastic. The service was excellent. It is little wonder that the Plough received an award from CAMRA, as the beer was excellent.
Wonderful place to go, relax, and enjoy excellent food

Booked a surprise meal for my husband's 60th Birthday. We prebooked our food because there were 11 of us. The food was suburb and cooked to perfection.
All the staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.
It is a village pub with a lovely atmosphere and food cooked with love. Everything is homemade.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family and anyone who is looking for a pub that serves exellent food.

Thank you so much

Booked a table here as a few friends & family said "it's quite nice there"
Arrived at The Plough and after walking in, we were thinking it was just a normal village pub, and expected your standard pub grub... how wrong we were!
Quite possibly the best food we've ever had, not just at a village pub, but anywhere... Ok, I've not eaten Michelin star, but have eaten in some very nice restaurants who couldn't touch this place for quality.
Top marks to the chef, and the friendly front of house staff, and I would recommend The Plough to anyone.

Thankyou keith for the great review and the feedback on my food i greatly appreciate it. We also like the way that the pub has retained the pub atmosphere and not gone all one way in terms of food/drink led. Look foward to seeing you again soon.
