Our cosy bar is the perfect place to meet family and friends for a pre-dinner drink, or for morning coffee or afternoon tea. With a welcoming log fire on those chilly days — you may find it hard to leave.

For a more exclusive dining experience, our private dining room seats up to twenty or more for a reception or celebration. It's perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or just getting your friends together.

We had a wonderful lunch here, first proper trip out for my Dad since March as he had been shielding. The food was amazing, wow those burgers. Staff very professional. We all felt very comfortable eating here and you have worked so hard to make all the adjustments due to Covid 19. Well done all the team at the Pickled Ploughman, I've booked again for next week !

Lovely meal beautifully cooked and served. Appreciate the effort that has gone into maintaining a safe & lovely environment, which must be very difficult under current circumstances. Would highly recommend.

Service could be better such as one waiter/waitress per table and then check on the customers. Seemed to be gathered in one place Food was nice though had to ask for the crackling and apple sauce that should have been with the pork. Atmosphere really friendly and welcoming

The necessary safety precautions were well done; we felt safe yet they did not intrude. The food was delicious and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first time visiting The Pickled Ploughman for lunch. The food was amazing, and the service wonderful. Such a lovely atmosphere too. We sat in the marquee which was beautifully set up. Social distancing and cleanliness of everything was spot on. We look forward to visiting again very soon. Thank you to everyone in the team
