Home-cooked food with lots of lovely gravy, friendly service, traditional pub, plenty of choice on menu and reasonably-priced.

“Nice friendly pub with decent pub grub.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed at nearby Combe House Hotel and decided to sample the local pub grub at the nearest pubic house which in this case was the Plough Inn. We arrived about 7:30pm on a Saturday evening. The pub was surprisingly quiet except for a noisy bunch of locals waiting to eat (fair enough) and a couple of local gents sitting at the bar.
The barman was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was reasonably priced (especially in comparison to the hotel restaurant prices) and the food was sent out timely and was plentiful.
Would eat here again if in the area.

“One of the Best Pub Meals we've had!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

My fiancee and I visited this pub on 15 April and we were most impressed with the proper pub feel, attentiveness of the staff and the quality food on offer. I had the 10oz Rump and my other half had the succulent Beef and ale pie. Portion size was good, the food piping hot and the home cooked style was a pleasure to behold. This is a proper pub serving quality ale and food and well worth a visit. Highly recommended if you are after both quality and value without the sky high prices of the gastro pubs. Oh yes, and Bruno the dog is as friendly as they come but bare this in mind if you are not a dog lover. In short, visit this pub and you won't be disappointed. 10/10 Well Done!
