It has been almost 40 years since I last had a pint in the pink pub. What a transformation into a top class dining pub and restaurant. Great service and lovely food. I look forward to returning sooner than last time.

Visited on 17.2.19 for Sunday Lunch. Been here several times before but never on a Sunday. Have to say it was exceptional. We had duck salad and spiced roasted cod for starters. Both of us had roast beef for main and rice pudding and pears in ginger and lemon to finish. Was amazing from start to finish.Very good value for money. Service was also exceptional. Can't wait for another visit hopefully soon.

This is a really lovely pub beautifully restored, cozy and welcoming. This was the first time we came for Sunday lunch having been here in the evening and this was the best traditional roast lunch I have had eating out at a pub restaurant, the beef was cooked perfectly rare with a rich gravy and potatoes cooked in duck fat. would certainly come back

It is worth the time and effort to travel over to lovely Bolnhurst and the outstanding Plough. It is obvious this establishment is head and shoulders above the "rest", the minute you enter the bar, smiles and greetings with service too. The plates of food tasted as good as it looked and reflected the menu perfectly. The wines were presently beautifully and tasted just beautiful. The beef and lamb were cooked to perfection and were accompanied with vegetables too match - no burnt offerings here!! The coffee was just perfect and I'm a fussass when it comes to coffee! Just a final note - the menus are concise but explain so very well - thank-you for the consistent offerings, the consistent service, but don't let up, PLEASE.

We went for dinner at the plough for my husband s 60th. Food was fabulous, atmosphere perfect for enjoying celebratory dinner out, and all 5 of us had a lovely, memorable evening. Would wholeheartedly recommend for special occasion.

What a really lovely evening my husband and I had at the Plough last Saturday. From the minute we walked in, the beautiful low lighting, warm glow of the fire, gentle buzz of the bar and in the distance, the busy kitchen bustling away, all added to the cozy, romantic atmosphere. We just knew we were in for a good night! The staff are really friendly and we chatted to the bartender, who told us he hadn’t worked there long, it didn’t show in beautiful G&Ts he recommended and then expertly made us. The food was completely amazing and the cote du beof was totally melt in the mouth amazing!! I had a really clever and understated starter of pickled cauliflower, which I really enjoyed. I have no idea what hubby had as I was enjoying mine too much to notice, but I can assure you he enjoyed his too. The wine washed it down a treat and even though I’m not a pudding person, we shared the lemon tarte and thst was pretty good too! All in all a really nice evening. We felt looked after and relaxed throughout. Thank you!

The menu at The Plough is always impressive. Quality ingredients, often local and seasonal are cooked with great care and skill to produce sublime flavours. Service is faultless and the restaurant has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
