Brilliant service. Great food
Service, food and atmosphere was amazing. I can’t recommend highly enough. A delight to be back out and at The Pickled Ploughman again.
Very nice outside area with heaters and blankets!
Not sure why I'm being asked this as we couldn't go due to lockdown,had a meal a couple of months ago though when open was lovely staff great
Always an excellent experience - Well Done 👍
Excellent meal very covid secure with screens between tables. We had to change our booking due to friends not being able to join us and they were more than helpful and flexible. I would highly recommend both now and when things return to 'normal'
COVID RISK! We are in a COVID crisis with Very Clear guidelines on social distancing, yet the owner thought it was fitting to seat a couple within 3 foot of us, WE had to ask them to be moved. When speaking with the owner about it HE was extremely curt and disinterested and merely kept repeating that they will put a screen up, not even an genuine apology was offered. Staff are very young and extremely unobservant. Overpriced. Customer service skills could do with being mastered by the owner as well as an overhaul of his attitude.
Great food, friendly staff
Was seated outside in the gazebo which was warm and we were also given blankets which was cosy. Had a roast with a mulled wine xx perfect xx
Felt special,spacious & safe.
Lovely meal and very safely carried out. Great service.
Was disappointed about the delay for the missing gravy and relish as the chap said he was getting it and never came back to us. Not even to apologise that he had forgotten! The food was delicious, but its things like that you remember unfortunately so its a shame they weren't on our plate as they should have been when we were served. Likewise a steak knife which we had to ask for after we had been given our food. Your prices are high and in my opinion worth it, but the customer service isn't a there sadly
Very enjoyable meal with family. Service was great. COVID precautions good, well set up & managed.
I have been to you twice this week with a best friend and work bubble , which we all loved !! The marquee was a brilliant idea 💡 You made Christmas a little bit brighter ! Thank you so much and Merry Christmas to you all 🎄🎄🎄
To deal with all the rules around Covid to keep us safe and still provide such an excellent experience is admirable. Please keep it up :-)
Another great evening with friends in the tent. Great service from the team. Santa’s Piste is a great beer wherever you get it from .. would be good to see more ale from them
Good food, sat outside in marquee was a little chilly but it is December. Blankets were provided couldn't ask for anymore. Good choice of Gluten free options on the menu. Thank you.
As always a great experience. Thanks
A fabulous experience all round. Friendly staff, good atmosphere and delicious food. I especially recommend the sticky toffee pudding.
Lovely meal, super friendly staff!
I’ve been to the Pickled Ploughman on several occasions with others and have found it a very friendly, efficient and ideal venue. We will be going again soon.
Everything is great quality and always receive a warm welcome! The staff are highly attentive and polite and the food is absolutely delicious. The effort they have put into the marquees and outdoor heating so that friends can meet following gov guidelines is brilliant. On top of all this, they provide huge support for their community! Only went last night and am due to go back again on Sunday! Can’t wait 😊
Very nice food, friendly staff, felt safe
Lunch in the marquee, heaters and blankets were great and kept us cosy in the rain. Service and food great.
I came with a friend and sat in the marquee. Blankets were provided and there were some heaters so it wasn’t too cold. Food was excellent and ditto service. Will definitely be returning
