“lovely pub”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Went there for lunch mid week. Very hot day. We sat in the bar so to benefit from breeze with doors open.
Very nice local summer ale.
All pleased with our lunches. All had standard meals with no complaints.
Friendly staff and very nice landlord.
This is one our few typical hop hanging Kentish country pub.
Its all down to the individual running of a good pub with food.
This is a Shepherd Neame pub.
They all vary.
We'll be back again.
Thanks.

“Poor value and indifferent service”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The service was casual, not attentive and slow.
The rack of lamb comprised only 3 chops – poor value, and was served covered in a heavy “sauce” which totally obscured any flavour of the lamb. The scallops and pancetta starter was good, tasty and not overdone, the pork belly was tender and tasty.
With poor value, indifferent service and a wide selection to choose from in this area it is unlikely that we would return.

“Lovely pub, brilliant food!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Went there for a lunch a couple of days ago. Had read some of the reviews beforehand and was not disappointed.Went there on Thursday and got the last table which pretty much tells you how popular it is. I had fish and chips and went for the homemade chunky ones. If you're not sure on whether to have normal fries or the chunky fries - take the latter, they are scrummy. The fish was the crispest fried fish I've ever had. Absolutely perfect, crisp on the outside and nice and juicy fish on the inside. Thank you for substituting the peas with broccoli, not every pub does that. For those of you who like cider try the variety with red fruit in it - very refreshing. Mind, it's a big bottle and you'd better be thirsty. Shame that the weather wasn't too good as they have a nice garden. For anyone who's looking to have a really good pub lunch, check out the Plough at Lewson Street. It's well worth the small detour off the main road. It might also be advisable to book to avoid disappointment.

“Lovely country pub”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Have been to the Plough many times over the past few years and have always enjoyed our meal . The atmosphere is great and Kevin the landlord is always smiling and a good laugh . We have been fortunate enough to see the Goosebumps band performing who are brilliant here on many occasions . Would highly recommend the Plough for food and ambiance .
