The staff were so kind to my mum. Incredibly accommodating and went above and beyond. It meant the world to us all. The food came out quick and was exceptional, the blankets were a welcomed addition and luckily the sun came out as soon as we turned up! 100% recommend.

We had a superb meal (the beef wellington was to die for!), with excellent service in a very comfortable and cosy atmosphere. None of these things is straightforward to achieve at the moment so I take my hat off to the team at the Pickled Ploughman. Thank you!

Absolutely wonderful lunch. It may of been windy, hailing and thundering but the atmosphere was so beautiful with lovely comfortable seating, warm heaters and pretty hanging baskets. We couldn’t of chosen anywhere better for a 3 course lunch. Food was delicious with a menu suited for all and generous portions. Staff we really friendly, attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We will certainly be returning and have recommended to friends and work colleagues already.

Good food & friendly staff. Done well for Covid times under a marquee. Thought it was good that each marquee had a fire pit and each seat was supplied with a fleece blanket to help keep customers warm.

Had a lovely meat trio roast dinner with crab starter and raspberry & white chocolate cheesecake for dessert. Each dish was well presented and very tasty that I could of easily licked each plate clean! We regularly eat out for Sunday dinner and this was by far the best roast dinner we have had eating out in years. Thank you Pickled Ploughman for your fantastic service and quality dining, we will be back x

Sunday lunch for 4, absolutely no complaints, service all the way through was excellent, attentive but unobtrusive. The meal itself was faultless and delicious! Huge portions too. 👌

Our first visit together, I have been before with a friend for lunch. Also our first outing since relaxing of lockdown rules. Lovely atmosphere, comfortable marquee with blankets provided as it was a bit chilly. Accommodating staff and lovely pub grub food at a good price. We will come again. Thank you.
