Can't really comment on atmosphere as we were there at a very quiet time.
Thank you for accomodating our Family Christmas Meal .The meals were Hot , full of flavour and everyone enjoyed themselves , Thank you
Overall we all had a lovely time and the food was amazing. The only feedback was that the crab starter was very small and there was a long wait between the starter and main course. Apart from that it was a great cozy atmosphere and the individual menu cards were a great idea as most people often forget what they had ordered!
Superb Sunday lunch at a reasonable price. Lovely pub. Will be returning.
We had a very pleasant meal to celebrate a birthday.. the food was excellent & the portions generous, the staff we very accommodating with one of our guests who had allergies & were professional & cheerful, we had quite a wait for our main course (45 mins) thankfully we weren’t in a hurry! We plan to use the pickled ploughman again for a family catchup in the new year.
So kind of you go take our order over the phone! We were really pushed for time and it could not have worked out better on the night!
I will be back. Thank you.
Fabulous pub, going to be a regular
Excellent Service and food. Staff are friendly & Helpful. Will certainly visit again.
Lovely pub/restaurant & great choice of gluten free menu. My only concern was paying £6.50 for 3 scoops of ice cream! A hot gluten free dessert like apple crumble would be nice for the winter. We will come back again.
Cosy,friendly pub, varied menu and excellent service. Thank you.
A very enjoyable lunch with excellent staff.
We booked a table in the bar area. I had an excellent coffe waiting for friend to arrive. Menus is fresh and varied. Food was absolutely fine (great chips) and the cottage pie gets a definite thumbs up. The bar was full but service was timely and warm. Loved the open fire. Great place to meet up with friends for a casual Saturday lunch - dogs welcome in bar area which is a nice touch.
A lovely meal with great service
Very clean everywhere. Excellent service,
We went to The Picked Ploughman for a team lunch. The food was ok, but a bit disappointing. Some of us were unable to order the food we wanted as they had run out. The service was very slow to the point where we had to cancel our desserts after 20 minutes waiting as we had to get back to work. Overall we were under-whelmed.
It was a great night, and for a set menu, the food and service were excellent. Thank you
Had the roast meat platter between 3 of us which was fabulous, very tasty, good amount of meat. Lovely desserts and generous cheese board. Service was always pleasant and prompt, really enjoyed our lunch, thank you.
Greeted by lovely staff and heat food.
I was recommended to try the Pickled Ploughman by another pub which was booked out for Sunday lunch. This turned out to be a great result for us! The Sunday lunch was excellent - with huge Yorkshire Puds which delighted our children! Good service, great food, I’d definitely recommend.
An absolutely splendid Sunday roast! I was in with my family and we had 3 courses with wine and it was perfect - will be back very soon!
Fixed 2 or 3 course Sunday menu. Great food, service and great value for money. Highly recommended.
The staff were great, I have been there a number of times, because the food is really beautiful.
