I chose the Cow and Plough based on the reviews and had high expectations. Unfortunately it didn't live up to them. We were squeezed into a table at the furthest point in the restaurant behind a family of 20 celebrating a birthday, it was an awful table with a tremendous racket that made it difficult to talk to each other. The waitress asked for our choices and all expectations went through the floor when we weren't asked how we would like our beef. The beef was pre sliced, totally dried out and crispy at the ends and very well done, not even a hint of pink in the middle. The Yorkshire puddings were fab. The other vegetables were ok although the broccoli was still crunchy, all in all not the great meal we were expecting but it was ok if you're not too fussed about your beef.

Food and atmosphere was both great! Staff were all friendly too. I had booked a table for 18 everyone was chuffed with their meal. Only a v.small negative was getting the dessert for one person incorrect. The staff however were only too happy to change to the right one!

Never judge a book by its cover springs to mind. From the outside this pub doesn’t look much but once inside everything comes alive in all aspects.

We have had several lovely meals at the Cow and Plough and have always been really impressed with the food and service. Yesterday whilst we enjoyed the food, we were a little disappointed with one aspect of the service. My Mother in Law found a small 1cm piece of plastic in her dinner (salmon burger) and mentioned this to the waitress, who said she would pass it to the chef. The chef told the waitress that it was a ‘fish scale’ but they would send it to the manufacturer for their comments. We were pretty sure that it wasn’t a fish scale and that it was actually plastic. We didn’t actually receive this feedback until we asked what the chef had said. Nobody apologised for this inedible item being in the food, and no money was taken off the bill. The apology and explanation would have been sufficient, and I’m surprised that this didn’t happen as we have always had such good experiences previously. I would still recommend this restaurant but with slightly less exuberance after last night

Really nice setting and good food. Had to send one of starters back as not quite cooked but was sorted fairly quickly. Other than that enjoyed our meal. Thanks

We had a great time. It was definitely the best british food restaurant I have ever tried. If you fancy the famous British pies, faggots or even a good dish of sausages and mash, this is definitely the place to go. The portions are generous too! The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the staff were very nice. It is definitely a good place to take outside town visits.
