Waiter and waitresses were fantastic and on the ball. I requested to change my chips to sweet potato and they were changed no problem. Very enjoyable evening and well worth the money and will definitely be going back again soon.

Service poor. The restaurant was virtually full, as was the conservatory, and there were only 3 members of staff serving. One, who seemed to be in charge, was very inefficient, one seemed to be getting drinks (except ours), and one who seemed to spend most of the time in the kitchen. After waiting 10 minutes to order drinks, I went down to the bar and ordered then myself! The menu had changed to 'Burger Night', yet the blackboard, in the conservatory, still said it was Pie Night. We could have gone to Burger King! It was just like a fast food place. Very disappointing.

We had a lovely meal however when I called to book a table for 4:30 I wasn’t made aware that the kitchen shut at 5, so we had to rush our order through and then had to wait to order deserts. Food was delicious however the bubble and squeak was the same price as some of the meat dishes and only came with one egg, slightly overpriced for what it was. At these prices we would expect full table service. Wrong soup of the day on the board by our table - soup was not Stilton and broccoli, so my father in law found the soup that did arrive too spicy for his taste and would not have ordered had he known what it was. Great deli board for our little boy who has just started eating food and the veggie burger was delicious!

It's now been made into burgers night on Thursday and no pies available. I personally would rather have the choice as although there are choices for burgers and there is fish or sausage dishes which are over ten pounds it's not really as good as it was. If you want pies then you have to go on another day. 😬

Can’t recommend the Cow & Plough highly enough! We come here frequently with our two dogs and always receive a warm welcome. We recently hired The Vaults area for a birthday party and everything was brilliant - the venue, the service, the food, the organisation - not to mention accommodating us at a week’s notice! One of our favourite places to eat and drink. :)

We had a lovely meal and really enjoyed the evening. The food and service in the restaurant were great. If there is one small criticism it would be that we were right outside the kitchen door, so excluded a bit from the 'atmosphere' of the room, that's the only reason I have marked the experience down on atmosphere!

My friend and i had the bubble and squeak it was sadly extremely bland and very uninteresting. The menu is not changed very often and the choice is limited. The room was unfortunately extremely noisy which we have noticed on previous visits. On the plus side the staff were very helpful and attentive.

We visited on pie night 8 of us and all had pies and they were delicious all the varieties with plenty of lovely fresh veg and chips or mash and the staff were very tentative offering more gravy. This was my first visit and I would definitely come again as when looking round at others food it all looked extremely good
