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.

This has become our favourite local restaurant. Been there several times over the last few months. Food and service consistently good - atmosphere relaxed and we’ve never been rushed.

A lovely meal with great service. A star was lost on service because we asked for water and we didn’t get any! I had to remind staff at the end of the meal. But otherwise really lovely.

Slightly slow food service but quality and taste of the food more than made up for it, so in the end it was worth the wait. Would and have recommended to friends.

The meal was very well presented, our pre-order for Christmas Meal was handled well, we were well looked after, and it was comfortable with a good atmosphere. The only criticism was that we had to request bread with our starter. Overall, Highly recommended.

Lovely Christmas meal, really tasty and worth every penny. Excellent customer service and the waitresses couldn’t do enough. Negative points – Brussel Sprouts hadn’t been cooked so were un-edible and the broccoli was a bit too el dente but was edible (just). This didn’t spoil our meal and still had a lovely 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.
