“£8.10 for a glass of wine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Ok it was a large glass but were not talking city centre here this is Aldridge, Walsall. We stopped by for lunch I had the rib eye steak which was quite dry. My wife had the salmon which was excellent. The food came out very quick which led me to believe the steak was pre cooked.

We will give it another go and hopefully a better review. Staff are on the ball and the place is very nice inside.

“Lovely food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

I've visited this restaurant a few times and never had a bad experience. Service is consistently good, really nice atmosphere, and the food is always of a high standard and well presented. Will definitely be visiting again soon!

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We came here (couple) as a special occasion. This is the 2nd time have eaten here and was not disappointed.
We shared a sticky platter to start with which was beautiful.
Main course we shared the Chateubriand - again fabulous & cooked to perfection.
For dessert we had the house sharer! Again really delicious! The Creme Brulee was to die for!
We had 2 bottles of Prosseco with our meal
Whole meal came to £116! Not cheap but worth the money!

“Portion sizes are small compared to the same meal in other restaurants in the same chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

I recently visited a restaurant in this chain in Cardiff called the corner house, it had the exact same menu/prices, I ordered the sticky platter sharer which was huge and definitely worth the £16.95 however when I ordered the exact same meal at the plough and harrow it was half the size and definitely not worth the £16.95, it didn't look like a sharer meal at all! This is very disappointing, I was expecting the same size portion.

“Good choice for a birthday meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Lovely Reastaurant and ambience.The service was good on a busy Thursday Evening and nothing was too much trouble for the waitresses.Despite a complainer in our party of six,they tolerated her rude behaviour very well.

i had baked camembert to start,followed by belly pork and to finish creme brulee,it was all of an excellent quality and beautifully presented.

Looking forward to eating here again soon.
