I had heard really good things about this Restaurant and decided to try it with four members of the family including my Mother on Sunday, March 10th 2013 (Mothering Sunday).
Our reservation was for 12.30pm and we had a superb lunch in very pleasant surroundings and a great atmosphere. Food and service was excellent - the young team of waters/waitresses have been trained to a high standard. Value for money couldn't be faulted. Despite the occasion, we were never rushed to finish. We all agreed that the venue will be a regular choice in future. Although we live in the area, this was our first visit but certainly won' be the last.

We booked a family table for 5 at The Plough one Sunday during Nov 2012. A pre Christmas family meal. Fixed price menu for all (inc one child). All had a roast dinner option.

The food was tasty, portions generous (too much for the dessert) and service was friendly and efficient.

The cost of lunch was, I thought, overpriced. The bill came only as two totals, bar and food which made it rather hard to determine if it was correct.

I would try The Plough again although I think for an evening meal and see if the atmostphere was different. It's a local pub/restaurant and worth another try.

Great food, good staff - fair price. Good atmosphere. Easy to access from the A12 and definately better than mundane service stops.

This was a random google search for us trying to find a halfway point in an area we don't know well to meet up with family and we were really chuffed with the unexpected result.

The web-site shows pic's of leather furniture making it look a little pretentious and swanky and we were worried it wouldn't be 'pubby' enough for the chilled Sunday lunch we wanted but booked and felt comforted by the time slot suggesting it was really booked up.

The welcome on arrival was great, all of the staff kept up the friendly and warm service and the Sunday lunch was so good that we couldn't manage desserts (except the glutonous brother in law!).

Not sure it would be so laid back but in a glamorous setting on a Saturday night but we were thrilled with food, service and ambience.
