What a lovely lunch outside in the sunshine on Sunday 2nd August! Lovely food (Caesar salad), efficient, friendly service and a sensible and welcoming system arriving and checking in at the bar. Will definitely be back soon!
Amazing staff and food
I only down marked the atmosphere as this was during Covid-19 pandemic so pub not got the busy noise it should have. Not the Plough's fault
A super country pub serving delicious high quality food at a good price. We sat in the delightful garden and the service was excellent with no drama re the COVID precautions. Thank you, we’ll be back
The Plough provided a fantastic meal, drinks and evening whilst adhering to the virus precautions. Prawn curry and fish and chips are highly recommended.
Lovely relaxed lunch. A couple more options on the menu would be nice, but other than that it was really good!
A well run and cared for pub. Good quality, well presented food choices at reasonable prices but also a comfortable place to stop just for a pint and a packet of crisps. The reopening arrangements have been carefully considered and we hope that The Plough will bounce back successfully post-lockdown.
Booking worked well and layout provided good separation. I had a sandwich and have to say bread did not seem particularly fresh being dry and with crusty edges (not in a good way), but under the circumstances I was prepared to overlook this. Staff were charming. It was unclear from the bill whether a reduced level of VAT had been passed on.
Excellent service and customer care. The food’s great too!
We had a fantastic meal
First outing... but had take away all way through lock down! It is delicious and good snd interesting food, friendly service ... i slways feel special and welcomed! Ina
Fabulous pub!!! Great atmosphere
Perfect place for a laid back Lunch. Lovely staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend
Went with the family to celebrate my Birthday. Despite no roast we had a lovely meal and good friendly service. 👍
It was my first time to The Plough and was really impressed with the food. Delicious smoked salmon, fresh fish and really good homemade ice cream. The service was great. I will be back again
Love the Plough, it was our first visit to a pub in almost 4 months and it didn’t disappoint! Great food, friendly staff and a lovely (appropriately distanced) Beer garden. It all seemed well organised and safe, we’ll definitely be back!
A bit weird to be eating out again, but the pub is airy and light, and the tables have always been well spaced out, so it felt fairly normal. The staff were really welcoming and we had great fun.
Always a lovely evening at The Plough.
A lovely evening and the garden looking fantastic. Delicious food too.
The Plough is an excellent pub and well run by Ashley. Great choice of beers (my first reason for going) and good home-cooked food. The menu changes with the seasons and offers a decent level of choice. It's a pub not a gourmet restaurant and that's what we enjoy. Great garden too. The Plough is a big asset in Itchen Abbas.
Well organised to cope with the covid regulations and in a way to make customers feel very relaxed and safer. Food, drinks and service all as good as normal.
Ashley has managed to create a fabulous clean friendly pub with great food . Very clear guidelines to adhere to without interfering with a usual pub atmosphere- looking toward to eating out more .well done to Ashley and his team
So lovely to be back in the care of Ashley and his super team. That plaice is magnificent!
Our first visit back to our local pub and couldn't be happier with everything that has been put in place to ensure customers' safety. The app was so simple and easy to use. Food was delicious, the work that has taken place in the garden is lovely and staff so friendly - very happy to be back.
All the new Covid-19 changes worked well, we had a delicious meal & then sat in the garden for a beer afterwards.
