I thought it was expensive and I was unaware that I had to have a set menu which I accept was my fault

Lovely lunchtime visit with the interesting Plough-related menus. Think Ins & Outs items could be included with Lunchtime menu sheets? Gorgeous soup!!

Amazing food, amazing location and lovely, welcoming staff. We love coming here and our latest visit was no exception. The menu changes regularly but the food is always excellent and is supported by a comprehensive wine list with plenty of by the glass or carafe options which is brilliant if one of you is driving. It’s so great to see The Plough doing so well after lockdown, but I guess that’s testament to their careful and thought through approach to customer safely and their unstinting high standards in the kitchen.

Possibly the rudest pub in Bedfordshire due to the arrogant management who lack manners and basic business acumen. This pub needs a reality check post Covid when everyone has suffered and be grateful of custom when it’s their. They are defiantly better deserving alternatives.

So lucky to live within a taxi ride of our favourite restaurant in the whole country! On Sunday we sat outside on the shady deck overlooking the stream, eating a perfect meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I give Jayne and her team 110%!

A return as soon as we could once re-opened. And what a return! The covid steps were taken of course but even they seemed totally non intrusive with such seemless, caring and quietly perfect service from the entire team. Then of course the cooking, as outstanding as ever. A superbly creative artichoke salad and octopus to set us away; the most perfect (and large!) Dover sole; roast grouse -mmmm; and then of course a souffle and as the song says 'nobody does them better'. A real treat, a warm welcome, lovely people, fabulous food.....enough said I think.

What can I say? As always, a wonderful meal in a superb restaurant, with great service and atmosphere. The chef was on top form and we couldn't fault anything. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome... and, in these strange times, so safe.
