We had a wonderful time celebrating my son’s birthday, as we had done 2 weeks earlier at the Plough for my wife’s birthday. All of us really enjoyed. Brilliant

The food was excellent as was the service. So sad to see staff who are struggling during COVID and the lockdown. We will be back to this great restaurant, don’t give up. Need all the locals to return and support what is one of THE best places to eat.

As you know, we have been visiting the Plough for many years and it is always our first port of call when we dine out as a couple or in our family group. The time before this visit we were disappointed with the food, both portion size, quality and presentation, i ordered the butterflied Cajun chicken breast which i have had before. It wasn’t butterflied or grilled, it was just a lump of chicken with spices on it, it was so unappealing that i left most of the dish,but on this visit (01/11/20), it was even worse! The service was poor, the atmosphere was non existent and the food was dreadful. I had the roast dinner which consisted of three small halves of roast potato, one Yorkshire pudding, a splash of gravy, the meat and not enough veg. My wife’s meal was similar and bland. My meal looked like a child’s portion! The table service was terrible, not one server came and asked if the meals were okay or if we required anything else, my wife repeatedly tried to catch the eye of the servers to ask for some butter with her boiled potatoes, in the end she had to shout out when a server walked past. Usually the Plough has very high standards and delicious food in a good portion size but my wife and i both feel that the service, ambience and food quality and portion size have gone down hill rapidly. For the last ten years, i have always booked a table for Christmas Eve, when myself, my wife and all of our grown up children enjoy a meal and a Christmas get together, but our last few visits have made us reconsider if this is the right venue for us next time. What was really disappointing was that the meal was paid for via a voucher from my son for my birthday. I’m not sure when we will visit the Plough again now as this last experience was not good at all.

My husband booked a table for an impromptu lunch. We were both really impressed with the whole experience. The fish pie was delicious and my husband's gammon looked nice too. We were also very impressed with the Covid measures that had been taken. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Kind Regards Karen and Anthony.
