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.

Our first visit as we were meeting friends halfway. We were all delighted with our find. Really buzzing Sunday lunch with a warm atmosphere and service with character and I mean that in a very good way. We would all come back again in the future.

A nice atmosphere and the pub/restaurant is well supported and busy. Some good food but you do have to wait for it - service rather slow. Perhaps they need more staff.

We all had an excellent lunch, the service was good and the food was hot. I don’t know why but it seems very difficult to get hot food, so this was a big big plus.

This is the third time my family and I have visited The Pickled Ploughman. The first time we had a fantastic experience so we decided to visit again. Unfortunately this experience was not to great, mainly due to slow order of service and cold food once it arrived. Due to the great first experience, we gave The Pickled Ploughman another chance. This time really lived up to your hopes and was just wonderful! Staff were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious and arrived swiftly! Plus a fabulous atmosphere with a regularly checked fire! Thanks for making our vegetarian Sunday lunch so enjoyable!

The wine was reasonably priced and also delicious. Our Spanish waitress was very friendly , cheerful and efficient.

Been many times, always a good meal, but this time they had run out of food we ordered and had to change what we wanted twice, this does not usually happen, they were very busy, but knowing all tables were booked, check they have the food they offer on the menu

When there is a salad garnish be a bit more generous with the salad. Have apple pie and custard as a staple on the desert menu. Add a small biscuit / shortbread with the coffee.

Really appreciated the fact that your children’s menu is fresh and of a high quality… It’s usually the case that you end up with some sort of frozen nonsense so this was much appreciated. Roast was great, starters were great, enjoyed the whole experience and will be back.
