I already put a stunning review on Google with pictures but incase you've missed it... This place is a MUST visit and has set the standard for others to follow. The staff... Friendly, warm, attentive, discreet and very well turned out (no trainers/pumps in site!!). They cannot do enough for you!! The Venue... Outside; wonderfully picturesque... Lovely snow white building which looks like the entire building has always been there, well maintained garden, seating area with a parasol per table, a lovely pond and huge weeping willow in the car park. Inside; the mix of old and new is only given away by the high beam roof and bi-folding doors in the section closest to the pond. Very warm and inviting. Then of course the all important food & Service... 5 of us went to Sunday lunch. Some ordered individual items and others chose to go with the set menu (which is excellent value for money). It was simply faultless!! The food was outstanding in both presentation and flavour. The delivery of the dishes matched with the clearing and arrival of the next course was quite frankly impressive!! Price is very fair (5 of us, 4 opting for 3 courses, the other for 2) with a bottle of wine and a couple of drinks was under £200. I will be coming back and if you haven't been here yet, I recommend booking a table and experiencing this for yourself!!

The Plough is my favourite place to eat! My friend and I used to come regularly but she is now unfortunately forced to use a wheelchair. The Plough staff looked after her wonderfully from the moment we arrived in the car to our leaving again. Thank you for making her visit so enjoyable.

A little disappointed this time with the menu it seemed to have mostly game meat which we are not too keen on no lamb or chicken on menu the sirloin steak my husband had was quite chewy unusual for the plough as we go there a lot and the first time we have come away thinking it was not 100% as per usual
