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!
We eat at the plough often and have been recently disappointed with the food and service. Food portions are a lot smaller than they used to be for the same price and some of the options on the menu are strange- for example the Eton Mess was inedible- why try and make a vegan pudding from something that is mainly based on eggs! (Therefore there was no meringue and the substitute was a panacotta(which is mainly cream based but was made from something that tasted sour). It should not be labelled Eton mess at all- vegan Panna cotta perhaps? Service was the worst we have ever had- long wait times for food and we had to keep getting up to ask for everything - we got our own menus, had to ask the waitresses to come and take our orders, had to ask for our plates to be cleared etc etc Overall shockingly gone downhill.
The Sunday roast was beautiful
There was not a lot of choice on the menu. More like a high class restaurant than a really good pub. Prices were way too high. We came this time last year and are disappointed at the changes.
The food and service were great thank you. We did however feel £6.95 for a glass of port a little pricey.
We were visiting from California (United States) and were staying near The Plough. We ate dinner the night we came in and had tea the next day. Both were great! The servers were friendly and helpful!
Lovely food and atmosphere.
Excellent food - the best fish and chips I have eaten in a while. Recommend to book in the bar area, atmosphere is more lively in there vs the restaurant. Service could have been improved in terms of knowledge of the menu, although speed of being served was very good.
We had all eaten previously at the Plough but over a year ago. We found the menu for the evening meal quite limited. There were no chicken dishes, too many fish dishes and only one vegetarian dish that with vegan cheese was not appealing. With one person not liking fish the choice was very limited. The food we had was good but two ordered burgers and one the fish and chips , these weren’t the meals we would have really wanted .
The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful . The gluten free beer was also very tasty .
Have eaten at the Plough on several occasions and always find the food and service excellent. Don’t hesitate to recommend.
Great menu and choice of wine . Service was good although we did have to wait a while for the main course. Food was great and good value.
Lovely lunch, friendly staff and great value for money. Would definitely recommend 😊
This is an amazing location.
Choice of starters was poor. We would have had one but disliked all the options.
The pre booked meal was served almost 30minutes late. Mrs Grimshaw's wasn't served until the rest of the group had finished due to a mistake in passing our orders to the kitchen;very embarrassing!
We stayed one night in the Torsin Suite, what a treat; beautiful room and incredibly spacious. Bathroom was fabulous too. We had dinner in the restaurant, where the service and food were excellent.
An excellent one night stay with a very enjoyable dinner. We will return.
The menu felt a bit restricted but standard was as good as ever
We dined in the bar area as we brought our dog. We had a lovely meal & the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Food was gr8 & the staff were friendly, attentive & efficient.
Amazing food and amazing service all round.
We were a party of 7 who had booked the table 2 weeks in advance as it was a special occasion. We live locally and chose The Plough as we have been in the past and the food is of a very good standard and it is lovely pub. However, we were very disappointed with our visit this time. When ordering, we were told those ordering steak (4 people) could not have chunky chips as they were saving them for the dishes which were sold as coming with chips (e.g. fish and chips, pie and chips) and could have fries instead. We were all disappointed with this as half of the pleasure of having steak is enjoying the chunky chips it comes with! We reasoned with the staff and managed to get one portion of chunky chips and the rest fries. In addition to this issue, the service was quite slow and we had to ask for a few things e.g. steak knives, soup spoon, side dishes that we’d ordered. We would have been more understanding had it have been busy but it wasn’t at all. We did manage to get a good amount off the bill however but that is beside the point. It would have been a lot cheaper for the pub if they’d just allowed us to have chunky chips! All in all we left rather underwhelmed with what should have been a lovely family meal. We would not recommend The Plough and will not be returning any time soon.
Service was VERY slow...disappointing
Excellent! Beautiful place! Attentive friendly staff and super food!
Burger slightly over cooked. All other food excellent. Brilliant to have gluten free without a big fuss. Fantastic service and we will be back. Thank you.
