Can't really comment on atmosphere as we were there at a very quiet time.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
