We eat out regularly, and to be honest I have become a bit jaded, but wow, visited the Plough for my birthday, faultless and memomarable. Amazingly good from beginning to end, if I had to pick out one outstanding element above all others it was the black pudding. All six of us served at the same time meant that everything was hot. Six people all impressed, and given the high quality it was very good value for money. I can’t wait to visit again.

We couldn't fault the atmosphere, service or the food, slightly disappointed that the menu wasn't as comprehensive as usual but 30th December isn't a good time for sourcing fresh food. The prune and Armaretto soufflés were out of this world, brilliant.

Unusually the choice of starters for the rest of my family weren't great but as I only eat fish or vegetables they were good for me. We were disappointed that scallops were on the website menu (although we know not seasonal) and although our waitress told us it was only a sample menu it was the only difference to the one in the restaurant that evening!! My son loves Venison but disappointed that wasn't a "main" option saying "it's always so great here but can't remember when it was last here!" It was however a wonderful evening with lovely food as always so not really any complaints, merely observations

Great family event for 30 people. Very professionally but unobtrusively managed, excellent food and drinks and good service. We received very positive feedback from our guests and would hesitate to recommend The Plough.

We had our company Christmas lunch here and could not fault the imaginative menu, the perfectly cooked and presented food, or the service which was attentive and slick. 17 happy diners left The Plough that day.

My Wife and I had a lovely meal on New Years Eve at lunchtime. The menu was predominantly Sunday Roasts with a few alternatives. The quality was as always excellent and the service provided by the wonderful staff was exemplary. A great dining experience.

Always a pleasure to visit as you know that whatever your choice of dish it will be very satisfying to the palette. Service is always speedy, kind and considerate and no request is refused........What more could any diner ask for than that?

Dear Jane, Martin and Michael, I absolutely love coming to the Plough. I am always greeted with such warmth and smiles. You really have created something very special and unique. It never disappoints and is always consistent. It really is top drawer. From the exquisite food that makes you stop your conversation to savour the taste, the olive oil and breads,, the selection of drinks that are always served in beautiful glasses - particularly the pink fizz, the tasteful decor, the outside vibe. And most of all the exceptional service from you and all your staff - so professional, but freindly at the same time. I've lived in Bolnhurst for ten years now and am so thankful that you are in the village - it makes it! . Happy New Year to you all and a genuine thank you. Jane - Jinjabird :)

We are certain to return as we really enjoyed everything about The Plough: our welcome, the service and of course the food and wine. You had sweetbreads on the menu which I enjoyed. We also liked the area around The Plough: the villages, the scenery and of course Grafham Water. So, in more ways than one, a gourmet meal in beautiful surroundings inside and outside the The Plough. Thank you, Julie P
