Absolutely first class food, very well cooked. Worth the relatively high price.

Good selection of dishes, went with the mid week meal deal. Starter of flavourful charcoal grilled sardines followed by roasted chicken breast and finished with mouth watering profiteroles. Excellent service too, recommend.

The trouble with so many eateries is that the standard wavers over time and recommending them is a bit risky. No fears, though, with the good old Plough. I know I could send anyone to Bolnhurst knowing that they would not be disappointed. The quality, welcome, staff and gorgeous grub never changes, it is always ***** Thank you Michael & Jayne once more. We don't eat out too often but when we do, it's always to The Plough. We'll be back.

We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. I would recommend calling beforehand if you have special dietary needs. I didn't do this but they still managed to provide a lovely meal for my husband. Will definitely be going back.

My wife and I visited The Plough to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose this restaurant because of the excellent food and high level of customer service. We have visited on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is expertly cooked and staff are very friendly and knowledgable. This all makes for a throughly enjoyable evening in relaxed and very comfortable surroundings. We would highly recommend this gem nestled in the beautiful north Bedfordshire countryside.

This is simply a consistently first class place to eat. Comfortably the best for miles around and the equal of many top restaurants in London.

Not the full all round 5* this time. As usual food and service were excellent but a couple of the wines (Chablis and btg Pinot Noir) were far below expectation (3* at best) so overall 4* average. Need to return soon to see if all back to normal.
