Lovely lunch with friends - pub, food, drink and service were all excellent
Lovely pub, beautiful food
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!
Lovely place, great food, great staff, value for money.
We enjoyed a lovely reunion with friends at the Pickled Ploughman. The restaurant was warm and welcoming with an open fire Menu was extensive and food was delicious. The wine was reasonably priced and also delicious. Our Spanish waitress was very friendly , cheerful and efficient. We will definitely visit the restaurant again and would not hesitate to recommend .
First time at this pub. Great food, great service.
Service staff couldn’t answer any questions on menu or available bar drinks, empty plates left on table for a long time, food good but potatoes under cooked, childs plate too small for amount of food that was on it, desserts v v good
Nice local pub
Had a lovely meal, food was very tasty. Service was good
We had a lovely meal with you, the service was excellent and the waiter was very good with our grandchildren. Would certainly come again and thoroughly recommend the Pickled Ploughman to other diners.
Brie, caramelised onion and cranberry wellington was incredible! Very light and delicious.
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
Pleasant evening, food was great. Incorrect order for dessert swiftly dealt with. Friendly service from our waitress.
We had a lovely evening, with great food 😊
Service was slower than normal and I never received my second drink I ordered. Food was excellent!
A really lovely meal. The service was excellent.
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.
Lovely setting, delicious meal. Would definitely return.
Great food and charming and helpful service. We’ll be back!
Amazing food and service. Will definitely return.
