“Good traditional pub, nice roast”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This is my local but have not used it for some years due to previous poor experiences.
However, I heard/read that it had changed hands and was now much improved, so went here with my partner for a Sunday lunch to give it a go. Very pleased to report that both roast meals were great, nice puddings and great ales. I had the beef and had 3 or 4 good thick slices and my partner had a lovely lamb steak. She wasn't so keen on the roast potatoes as she thought them too well done - but I love them like that.
Guest ale was Spitfire, but I liked that they had 2 cornish ales on as well - only shame is I didn't get to try them all - next time maybe!
Would be wise to book as it is not a big place and is clearly getting more popular now word is getting around locally that it has changed hands.. Conservatory and small garden at the rear with tables - very family and dog friendly. Nice atmosphere and a vast improvement all round.
Warm welcome and good service throughout, so will be back i'm sure.

“Excellent traditional pub”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Excellent friendly staff, have eaten there several times now since the new management and always really enjoyed the food. Great in the evening or day time with the kids, garden very kid friendly. Great place to end a walk on the common and is the best pub in Horsell.

“Good food and good value for money”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Four of us went to Sunday lunch at the plough. The greeting and service in this pub is friendly, and efficient. The roast pork with plenty of decent crackling and the beef cooked medium rare to my liking (but you can ask for your preference.) starter and sweets plenty of choice and also very acceptable. With a bottle of wine and a few drinks around £ 20.00 per head very good.
We will certainly go back.

“Mothers Day”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

My son took me out for Mothers Day lunch at the Plough Horsell. We went for the 2 courses at £14.95 and chose for the Lamb Steak and the Salmon and Prawn Skillet followed by Hot Choc Fudge Cake and Cheese Board. The food and service was excellent and the pub buzzing with atmosphere and live music by Steve Brookes. Lovely gift of fresh daffodils given to every mum at the end of the meal.
