“DISAPPOINTING”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Had dinner at this place recently. It was busy so obviously lots of local people are satisfied with the food! We had roast beef which had a very strange taste to it and did not look as though it had just been sliced from a roast. The vegetables were just plain boiled things all put together in a bowl, no taste and incredibly boring - don't go out to eat and have plain, boring, boiled vegetables without much flavour.
Only saving grace was the sticky date pudding which was good, light and tasty. Just need to get some good savoury cooking on board.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Visited this lovely pub/restaurant Saturday 31st May for a drink, after looking at the menu we decided to book for Sunday and were not disappointed, the service was fantastic, staff were so friendly, service was excellent and the food was perfect, I had roast beef and my husband had the pork both meats were cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend the Plough and hopefully will visit again.

My Family and I often visit The Plough Inn because the food is always great!
The staff are welcoming, lovely restaurant/bar area. Very clean and tidy!
The food has always been delicious for us and the pricings are reasonable. I would certainly recommend this place!

“Delightful cost effective fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

If it's a Michelin Star experience you wish this is not the place for you. If on the other hand you seek good, freshly cooked food at reasonable prices then you can do no better than visit here. With the cooking in the competent hands of Ray and bar and service in the professional hands of George and Katie the overall experience is very good indeed. A superb dinner was enjoyed at the special Steak and Seafood night. Wine list fine and a great choice of Fine Ales from the brewery next door.

“Yum yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Dropped in on a Saturday early evening for a steak and some beers and was not disappointed. Tasty, tender and generously sized sirloin served promptly by a friendly waitress. The pub is the brewery tap for the adjoining Wood Brewery. Sampled Shropshire Lass and Shropshire Lad bitters. Both are really good draught beers and well kept (as you would expect). Prices reasonable but the place gets popular so booking may be advisable. When fine you can sit outside and enjoy views to a local landmark, Flounders Folly, an 80 feet high stone tower that overlooks the whole area. If you're feeling fit, there's a footpath from Wistanstow to the Folly. You will be in need of several pints and a good meal when you return.
