Amazing food, loved the area we sat in, wooden beamed room with glad to two sides. Gentle background music would be a nice touch? Service was too class, quick, no waiting for anything at all.

Had a fantastic group lunch for my husband's 30th birthday. The menu was amazing and the food was exceptional (particularly the french onion soup which so many guests loved!). We had amazing service, and the semi-private dining room was a great size for all 17 of us! Thank you!! Hopefully I'll be back for my own 30th birthday in December!

Not my first time here I have to say and always guaranteed good food and service to be fair. Both myself and my wife have both worked in the catering trade so we like our food and The Pough at Bolnhurst does not disappoint . We went this time as a treat for my wife’s birthday and everyone had a very nice meal .... Will be back & would most definitely recommend and have on numerous occasions.... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Plough is an exceptional restaurant in all respects. The high quality of the food, the relaxed atmosphere and the concern for the comfort of the customer are key factors. It is our personal favourite, and an additional accolade must come from members of our family who live in France and who always choose the Plough when they visit us! We are already planning our next visit!

We are regular visitors but never tire of being pampered at the Plough. The team in the kitchen consistently produce food of superb quality. Yesterday was no exception, the highlight for me being the onion soup. Every spoonful bursting with wonderful flavour.

We booked as a Christmas treat for my partner who is in a wheelchair. From the moment we arrived your staff could not have been more kind and helpful. Wheelchairs can be problematic in restaurants but we were offered a choice of tables which was really helpful. The menu was interesting with lots of choice. My partner and I chose the partridge and when his arrived it had been thoughtfully carved to make things easier for him [ he only has the use of one hand at present ]. My daughter and grandson aged 9, who are discerning foodies, chose steaks and chunky chips and both said that they were the best ever. The size of his almost defeated him - but he battled on ! All the food was delicious and I am so grateful to have been told about the Plough. We shall be back and thank you for making our visit so special.

Excellent cote de boeuf and Hayden our server was very helpful. Chips could have been crispier but all other sides were superb especially the Brussel sprouts. Would highly recommend.
