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!
Lovely food in a cozy relaxed and beautiful setting.
Stunning food and very patient service as we knew they were run off their feet with certain other customers. We were all really happy with our meals, so well cooked and the flavours were perfect. Had a great time and will be back very soon, have a lovely Christmas all of you 😀
Relaxed dining experience in a warm welcoming environment. Excellent food and service. The wood burning fires were an added bonus on an otgerwise cold, wet day. Accessibility for wheelchair users was spot on.
The service was very efficient and friendly and it was a lovely bar. Food was excellent overall, we had sourdough and bacon butter - the butter needed seasoning, to start my partner had the charred chicory, hazelnut and goat cheese - delicious, I had the artichoke, mozzarella and lemon dressing which was okay - but not enough dressing and far too much lettuce. Main courses - Bream lovely, Pork Belly delicious, Pommes Anna - again lacked seasoning. Also the house Sauvignon Blanc was excellent. So - definitely excellent food with better seasoning needed and also - the artichoke starter needs to really take out all the lettuce! Highly recommend you visit and try the food
I thought I had booked 3 afternoon teas when I booked online, so was disappointed that we weren’t offered that when we arrived and it wasn’t available to us
good friendly service
Great night Thank you
Service was a bit slow but the staff were very pleasant and friendly. Overall we enjoyed our family lunch
All good only one very minor criticism - the knives were very blunt for cutting the roast beef, a steak knife might be a better idea in future! Thank-you for a lovely meal.
We booked online for a table in the restaurant but when we arrived we were told there was no-one else in there so we would be better in the bar. We have been to The Plough 4 or 5 times before; the food is excellent but the service needs to get its act together a bit more.
Great food, great customer service. Very easy online booking.
Party of 5 to eat. Nice place but heating went off so it was cold and we were told it would not be back on till 9. It didn't come on.....we moved after the meal. The guy at the bar didn't seem too bothered. Food was ok, but I've had better. Service was slow. The waiters were very pleasant. It could be really excellent here if they service was quicker and they upped their game with the food - ok isn't good enough at these prices. 17 in Milnthorpe is much better with similar prices.......a shame.
Disappointing to be honest. The Roast dinner was clearly cooked several hours before and presented like a warmed up Sunday lunch. Vegetable were hard and the meat dry. The starter was freshly cooked and was up to the usual standard. We have been regulars at the Plough and this was the most disappointing meal we have had. Service was slow also.
We had a really great meal - thank you. The chefs are very talented. We loved every course. This included the sourdough bread with bacon butter, the artichoke starter, mackerel; then the lamb neck fillet and the pork belly; and finally the ginger and prune pudding, and the chocolate torte. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant - no ordinary eating place, but good relaxed eating.
Loved it. Delicious lunch and in such an attractive inviting atmosphere! Have been recommending you already.
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.
