About The Plough at Lupton
The Plough is a beautifully appointed roadside inn with a big emphasis on food. We have a large restaurant where we accept booking all day, as well as a bar area where dogs are allowed.
We also keep some tables in the bar free from reservations- perfect for impromptu food!
Sam in front of house was great, as were restaurant staff. Very welcoming.
Excellent Sunday lunch starting with a lovely welcome on arrival and attentive service throughout. The food was very good with all of suite than satisfied. This is our first visit for many years and we will certainly be returning in months rather than years ..Really good transformation.
Visited to meet friends who were driving up to Scotland, so our time was limited. We were all there for our 12.30 booking, ordered drinks and two courses, and our starters were eaten by 1.00. Main courses had not arrived by 1.50, yet several other tables who arrived after us had been served. We spoke to the Manager who told us our food would be with us in 5 minutes. After a further 15-20 minute wait our friends were on the point of leaving as they had a long drive ahead of them; we asked another staff member, and were told the food was being plated, and it duly arrived. Our suspicion was that the order had been mislaid, but when we asked the manager he became very defensive. He said that he had kept us informed, but (a) this was only after we chased the order, and (b) he had said it would be 5 minutes and it was closer to 20. When I asked if he thought a 70 minute wait between starter and main course was acceptable he evaded the question. The manager offered to make an adjustment to the bill but when it arrived no adjustment had been made. When we queried it, the cost of our drinks was deducted. I must say that we were all very happy with the food, which was excellent. However, the slow service, and the attitude of the Manager, mean that I would be very wary ofr recommending The Plough to others.
Very crowded on Saturday, service could not cope, staff young, rudderless and nobody in charge. People behind us complained very loudly and received vouchers to compensate for a dire evening. Food was good when it arrived. Needs management and training for everybody front of house.
We were served by Sam. He was friendly, engaging and helpful.
We enjoyed our experience at the Plough, food was very enjoyable , will definately be returning .
Very nice meal and stay
we had a wonderful meal the staff had to deal with a medical problem, but this was done quietly and even with this going on we still felt special and the service was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
Wonderful food at a very reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere
Food was delicious. Cosy atmosphere. Fabulous venue!
Our first visit and we were very impressed. The decor, layout (dog friendly in the bar) and welcoming, friendly staff got our lunch off to a great start. The steak pie with summer greens was delicious. We'll be back!
Superb as always!! Great food, room and staff
Child’s desert was missed initially / took a long time to arrive. Quick enquiry and apology immediately given and situation rectified. Not a massive issue on a busy Sunday service. cost of desert taken from bill. All in all a fantastic place and we will be back
The barman (S.African origin) was excellent with great knowledge of his job. Loved the recommended G&T. Food as with our last visit in 2014 (from Oz) was great. Keep up the good work.
Great food and nice restaurant. Easy to get to and service was great.
A warm welcome, informal and friendly setting. Limited wine list but can buy by the glass. Food was very good and there is obvious passion and attention to detail in the kitchen. Just wish we had room to try the puds!
The only slightly negative comment is the small amount of seafood available, however this was a Sunday lunch menu. The whole dining experience was very pleasant and we would have no hesitation in repeating the experience.
Only dropped a star on service because they forgot a side order and we had to ask for water twice apart from that it was excellent as usual.
Great good, friendly and professional staff and a lovely atmosphere in restaurant.
We really enjoyed our meal - great flavours and portion size (almost too large!). Service was excellent and timely. Thank you.
We are visiting from Australia and have been to the Plough twice in the last week. On both occasions we were extremely impressed especially with the service of your staff .
Lovely food and great service. Not been for a while, but we'll be back soon.
Good food as always
Lovely atmosphere. Good food
Food good. Service middling. Ambiance poor.
