Overall the experience was excellent: the aperitif in the sunny garden, the succulent chicken, the delicious lemon tart and the wonderful service. The only small criticism is that the tables are a bit close together which detracts from the ambience.

An outstanding place. The staff are exceptionally welcoming and polite, they know about the food and wine - and are happy to help. One of my favourite dining experiences in the area.

As I said to staff as I was leaving, a better sign on the road from Bedford would be good for those of us who arrive from that direction. I think anyone who offers such good food would be happy to have easy to spot signage, so folk can arrive relaxed, and not annoyed or frustrated, if they overshoot the entrance. Pity

A lovely discovery! a nice little gem pub in the countryside. It is cosy, nicely set up and the food is really a pleasure for the mouth and eyes. Strongly recommanded.

Very pleasant Sunday lunch at The Plough. We were meeting friends and decided on The Plough as being approximately equidistant between our houses (an hour's travel for each of us), so wanted somewhere informal and relaxing. Very happy with the food, service and ambience. As a Coeliac requiring a gluten free diet, I was extremely impressed with the care taken over provision of a full gluten free menu and an obvious underatanding of the requirements. Whilst the ambience, service and food were all fine, if I had any minor criticism it would be that the Sunday roast was a little 'ordinary' versus the price was at the high end of expectation. However, overall it was a very pleasant experience.
