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!
Really lovely Sunday roast but we were lucky to get it by all accounts so if that’s what you want to eat go early, we were there for about 4:45
Professional and polite staff, excellent food and great service - what’s not to like !
A really enjoyable lunch catching up with old (and not so old ) friends Very friendly,helpful staff and superb food. Will be back again before too long
Met with an old friend today and spent most of the day chatting. Staff were very friendly and didn’t mind us staying most of the day. Excellent food and nice comfortable atmosphere
Our favourite pub in the area, we visit everytime we holiday here... And a bonus that they are dog friendly in the bar which meant our puppy could join us :)
Lovely food in a lovely environment. Thank you.
I had booked a table online so was a bit surprised when we were shown to an unset table and other people where told set up tables had been reserved. I had the tuna burger from the specials and it was over cooked.. i expected it to be pink as the menu stated. It was lovely just very dry
We've always liked the Plough for its creative take on gastropub fare, but the food was disappointing this time. Despite an almost empty restaurant, it took them 10 minutes to let us know that the beetroot crisps we had ordered were not available, and we had to re-order our starters. Scotch egg starter was hard boiled - most places give you runny yolk - with simple HP sauce. Prawn cocktail pretty ordinary. Tuna burger was described as "served pink" on the menu but was cooked through and dry. Lentil burger was better. Hopefully this was an aberration, but the menu just seems rather dull at the moment.
Dismal grey decor. Service quick enough but staff need trained in how to talk to the customer, who are not 'you guys'. New staff poorly prepared, and learning the poor standard of the others.
Excellent meal once again and very dog friendly in the bar.
Fantastic and friendly service. Food was delicious! Highly recommend this place!
Limited vegetarian choices but tasty nonetheless
We had the rump steak and fish and chips. Both meals were excellent. Service was great too!
Was very quiet for a Saturday night in July with only a couple of other tables, and no one when we moved to the bar - so lacked atmosphere. The menu also lacked vegetarian options. Nice, but not special enough to be worth travelling out of Kendal for us
Really enjoyed our family Sunday lunch at the Plough. Food tatsted great, price was good, staff were pleasant....all in all a good day!
Very friendly, professional and courteous team at The Plough. Food is lovely. Great, cosy atmosphere in the bar restaurant area.
Fab meal and service as usual!
Dining with a party of 10 friends , we had pre -booked and made quite a lot of last minute changes, including the date and time and they were really accommodating and friendly every time we contacted. The service was excellent with starts arriving shortly after us sitting down and the table cleared straight away. The food was amazing we all enjoyed our meals with no complaints. It was a really lovely venue and very relaxed, it was a little quite on the night we dined though but that didn't matter as we were able to enjoy ourselves without worrying about disturbing anyone.
We were very impressed by the range of gluten free food available and will definitely be back again
Nothing to add!
A bit of 'crap sandwich' experience. Really nice pub and the room was comfortable and very spacious. We were welcomed on arrival and checked out by Helen, who was excellent throughout. Sadly she wasn't working in the evening, as the evening meal was rather disappointing. I ordered baked camembert which was only half cooked through. No one came to the table to check everything was okay with our starters. When I asked the waitress to let the chef know when she cleared our plates, there was no follow up. We both ordered steak cooked medium rare, both were overcooked. We were asked if everything was okay this time and my husband sent his steak back, only to get another well done steak but with more fat than meat. It was very quiet for a Saturday evening (which may be due to the road closure in place at the time) but it lacked ambience, so for the premium price tag all in all it did not feel like value for money.
There weren't many people in when we visited, but I imagine if it was busier the atmosphere would have been great! The food is excellent. Will definitely be returning.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere.
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.
