Really pleasant evening and coped very well with these Covid times. Felt safe and the food was excellent. Only negative was the compulsory "service charge”. Personally I am happy to reward good service but resent it not being a choice. A crafty way of upping the cost of the evening.

Food was incredible. Facilities great. Service a bit underwhelming but we did go at 2:30pm on a Sunday so perhaps they’d had enough by then. Will return for sure.

Great Sunday lunch. Thank you so much. Food was excellent, and very kind to bring us extra roast potatoes! The set up outside was really well done and the service was tidy, accommodating, friendly and prompt.

One of the best Sunday lunches we have ever had! The beef and pork were superb and the veg were perfect. We haven't visited The Plough for the past few years and we are so glad we returned!

Everything was wonderful, service amazing, food was top quality and the atmosphere was wonderful being outside. However it would be so lovely if the plant-based and vegetarian options were bigger and more varied. I don't want to eat a risotto when I go out for a special dinner as a vegetarian!

£4 for bread??? Limited vegetarian options but chef tried to be accommodating which was appreciated. A veggie burger on the menu would be a good basic choice.

This was our first visit to The Kingdom Plough. I was really impressed with the 'Al Fresco Dining' set up. It was a really pleasant atmosphere, kept us dry in the rain, and fairly warm, due to the heaters and blankets. Fabulous menu, though a chicken option would have been good.

My birthday lunch at the Plough was one of the best I've ever had. Staff were amazing and really looked after our group. Food was off the scale brilliant.

Genuinely amazing food which hasn’t been hampered by the pandemic. The atmosphere in the marquee wasn’t the best - perhaps you could try some music and softer lighting even in daytime? I understand the conditions for businesses aren’t ideal though so well done for getting such amazing food out in less than perfect conditions. Also the staff are amazingly friendly and polite.

Thank you, great lunch and efforts put in by yourselves for dining outside. It's made me realise that one should always travel with a little fleece rug for dining outside just in case the wind is blowing from the north!

We came for lunch on one of the wettest, coldest May bank holidays for years. Your team were amazing, polite and welcoming even though they must have been freezing cold and wet. They brought us blankets and moved the patio heaters near our table and couldn't have been more helpful.Delicious food, great coffee. We always stay with you for Cheltenham. Well done on a difficult day!

We had a wonderful lunch for my Mum’s birthday on bank holiday Monday. We sat outside and even though the weather was pretty awful (high winds and rain) we felt cosy on our table near the heaters and were really quite comfortable. The food was delicious! I had the salmon to start which was lovely and fresh, followed by the duck which was delicious - particularly the duck croquette. It was so tasty. The food that my guests had was also wonderful. For dessert we had the chocolate mousse with raspberries. This was yummy and the presentation was exceptional. Thank you for the nice happy birthday message on my mum’s plate too, that was a nice touch. We just had the house red and this was a great house wine. The service was fantastic too so thanks to all who looked after us. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back soon! Thank you
