We were a group of 20 having a variety of meals which were all served within a few minutes of each other, very good for a largish group. Everyone seemed to enjoy their main courses but were particularly enthusiastic about their sweets! Staff efficient and friendly. We will book again!

Food is decent as always but my how the prices have shot up! 15.95/16.95 for a single course of a Sunday lunch and 20.95 for the trio of meats Sunday lunch is a tad too rich for me. Even ordered one sausage and two roast potatoes for a toddler and was charged 6.95! Won't be going again due the increased prices. I fear the Cow and Plough is either struggling (hence the price rises) or it believes it's worth it in which case, good luck.. My local may not be quite on a par food wise but it's at least reasonable (12.95 for Sunday lunch).

Eaten at Cow and plough dozens of times over years and always been ok but I will be honest and say the meal we had on Sunday was awful The starters of Calamari should never have left the kitchen- rubbery with greasy batter sliding off and the main roasts weren’t great,way below usual standard Very disappointing meal and expensive for what it was

There were 7 of us yesterday. We were very well looked after, from finding our reserved table very easily as there was a card with our name in the middle of it, to the children being given activity sheets and coloured pencils on arrival, excellent service and delicious food!! Was most mortified on getting home that I had forgotten to tip. Will make up for it next time!

We had a lovely time on Sunday for our Mother’s Day celebration (a week late due to holidays)! Food was amazing! Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. We visited last year for mother’s day too and will definitely return in the future. We brought 2 children with us (2 and 9) who were accommodated for really well. Thank you for a lovely day!!!!!

Worst pub lunch ever. Took over an hour for food to come. When it came, the main courses came at the same time as the starter - sent them back. When they came back unbelievably the kitchen had decided to put the chicken from my chicken salad onto my wife's tuna nicoise - sent them both back. Came back again, and the tuna was absolutely inedible, slimy, from freezer - sent back again. Came back with cheese instead of Tuna - but both salads were really just a bowl of leaves. Chips must have been days old. Waitresses all chewing gum, ours was rude to my wife - mentioned to Manager when refusing to pay for food and he just said they do what they want, take no notice of him. Just paid for drinks, at least the beer is good. Manager said they'd lost their chef - but that's not a customer's problem! NEVER going there again to eat.
