Diner Reviews
  • "Nice place to eat and drink but the noise level with all the clientele shouting to be heard against each other meant that any conversation between our party was one hell of a strain - which was a pity because it spoiled the other wise good experience, food and nice real ales."
    dined on 28/08/2014
  • "Having been several times on a Monday for the 2-4-1 deal on the pizza was not disappointed , the food is of outstanding quality , service is good and is speedy. Cannot fault the pub in any way"

  • "very loud poor servce at bar chidren running around tables too close together service poor"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Took family of five to Sunday lunch for first time after been recommended by friends. Lovely decor and a great buzz with the music giving the place a great vibe. Food was simple but good and excellent value for money. Outside dining area lovely. Will definitely be back!"
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "Took a group of people, three of whom ordered the chilli beef burger - they were disappointed that it was a normal burger with a chilli sauce and not chilli's in the burger. I thought one of the female members of staff was a bit rude but everyone else was great !"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Another visit to the Plough and another lovely meal had by all. Would recommend to groups wanting some good food and good beer. Not really geared up for romance as the pub is always packed full of people (but then there are lots of other places to eat in Harborne if romance is what you want.) Only niggle with the place is that it was stifling hot and so on a warm night I would advise sitting near the back where the doors lead out to the garden."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "A pub worthy of a visit from Triple D if only Guy Fieri would do a visit to the UK! Super quick service and no fuss. Pulled chicken burger was amazing and served on a really good bun as was the sloppy joe burger. Good beer too. I will definitely be back."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "I was born in Harborne and left nearly 25 years ago so it was great to come back and find the Plough has transformed into a really great friendly pub. It was extremely busy as it was quiz night but bar service excellent. Got served straight away and even while waiting for the beer to be served was asked twice more if I needed serving. Good selection of real ales and lagers. Went with 2 friends. Me and one friend had the 2 for 1 burger offer (Tuesdays) which were delicious but maybe a bit overpriced had they not been on the offer and portions could have been slighly bigger. My other friend found the Calzone was a bit on the dry side with not much side salad. However a really good night and will definitely go back."

  • "This place reminds me of the gastro pubs in London, it's got a real funky decor and the food is always good!!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Very popular and busy. Our first visit to the Plough entertaining a couple of friends. Were not shown menus or told that we had to order ourselves at the bar. Good food if you wanted pizza or burgers, but not much choice after that. Quite rowdy, so not the type of pub to go to if you want a chat (which we did). Shame I was disappointed as I have been wanting to try the Plough for a long time. Just not the right place for our evening, however, I would go again just for a drink with friends."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "As a regular visitor (at least once a week and then whenever we can get a babysitter!) I can honestly say that the quality of every aspect of the Plough remains consistently high. The produce is always the very best availablke and the quality of the cooking is excellent, empty plates every time! the staff team are super friendly and efficient without being over the top. If you want to enjoy high end wines and beers with great tasting food then you need look no further than the Plough."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "This pub looks quiet and unassuming from outside, but inside is an upmarket, quirky décor with plenty of tables and chairs. The bar is great, with lots of drinks and fun snacks. The food was good, but a bit over priced. The staff are in the background, a bit too much, as we would have liked more drinks with our meal and to see some smiling faces. This is a great pub for getting your own drinks from the bar and sitting whiling away an hour or two chatting with friends. I wouldn't eat here again but would call in for a drink. "
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "This was my first visit here and I really enjoyed myself super service by the staff, and great environment. My meal wasn't what I was expecting, but it was nice we will be visiting again on Sunday evening. X"
    dined on 18/05/2014
  • "As we are oldies! not sure what to expect.Great atmosphere,surprised re outside area,it was a lovely sunny day when we went which adds to it all.Vety good food,beers bit more expensive than we are used to.Will be back"
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "So we went on the 2 for 1 burger Tuesday and the burgers were delicious! The delivery of the food was fantastic, arriving on some quirky trays. The music and atmosphere was very good, I loved the evening! "
    dined on 13/05/2014
  • "This is a vibrant pub in Harborne that has a great menu choice. Sunday lunch is a favourite but roasts do run out so book an early slot. Kids menu very good, with colouring available to do."
    dined on 11/05/2014
  • "The Plough never disappoints, the bar staff are excellent and very efficient, the food whilst not Michelin starred - it doesn't need to be as it is good well prepared interesting food that is served well."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "I was Impressed with the food it's self. Service not so good. My starter came out just as my husband finished his. Veggie choice not the best I've experienced . but overall liked at atmosphere so willing to give it a second chance"
    dined on 01/05/2014
  • "Lovely food with excellent service. Staff are all very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. "
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "I have been to The plough a few times and have never been disappointed. I went for my birthday with a group of friends and as usual the food was excellent."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "A great pub in Harborne for all occasions - we were here to celebrate my birthday and I had a great meal. Everyone enjoyed their food. Would have been even better if our food had arrived together though."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "The Plough is great value for money, with friendly staff and always a really good experience. I always recommend the plough as it never lets you down."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Excellent food, good size portions (not obscenely large) brilliant ambiance, friendly & efficient staff. And I was in good company too!"
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Have always loved visiting the plough for breakfast and lunch so thought I'd enjoy the dinner just as much. However due to it being a very busy pub that seemed to take priority over people dining. We had to fight with the crowds just to order our food and buy any drinks. By the time we'd reached the bar for drinks out dinner had gone cold. People had been sitting on our reserved table and it was full of glass etc which I had to find staff to clean. Not at all attentive to the diners."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I regularly eat and drink in The Plough as Harborne is local to where i live. Took friends who were visiting from out of town with a young child, and they loved it. A good mix and atmosphere, and very welcoming with children"
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Met up with a few friends for brunch, we chose this due to the good quality of the food and relaxed atmosphere. 2 4 1 on brunch if before 11am, so even better value!"
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "We were very impressed with the food...excellent quality and delicious and good value for money.....service was slow but as it was very busy ..understandable.great buzz of people but very noisy....though there were a few tables round the back that were in a slightly quieter area. Will def come back!"
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Sunday lunch with the family - very good - the pizza was excellent."
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "The food was great but there was a draft where we were sat in the back by the windows"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "but just not this time. I went in for Saturday brunch. I ordered the Plough's version of a Full English. For £9.50 I was expecting quite a lot. Sadly, it was very average. The portion was quite small (I had to get a sandwich on the walk home) and they forgot my hash brown. The place is setup nicely for parents to bring their kids and it's always very bright with a good ambience. The staff weren't as friendly as usual but I'll take that with a pinch of salt because it was so busy. It's not like they were rude or anything. I'd still recommend it and I'm not put off by one average experience."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Excellent service, food and atmosphere as always. Always enjoy coming back here, great menu, really is delicious. Highly recommend."
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "Excellent, the new buns are great and the burgers always have been. We can never choose so often have to split them in half and if we do not have an even number we just have a burger for the table! The pulled chicken burger was fab and the Swiss and Mushroom (but it was spicy which is NOT on the description)."
    dined on 11/02/2014
  • "Very disappointing over priced Sunday lunch. The beef was very salty, 1 meal came out with no potatoes and the suede and carrot mash resembled baby food. Very, very disappointing!!"
    dined on 09/02/2014
  • "Food is very, very expensive for a pub in Birmingham, but pretty good, though it would be nice if they had some cheaper options. The positive on that point is that this is way better than most pubs in Birmingham. Better than any other I've been in, in fact. Lots of attention to detail to make the environment very lovely. They also have good coffee and the staff are attentive and friendly/professional. If they have to charge what they do for food and beer to keep the place nice, I can accept that. I do wish they'd turn the music waaaay down, though."
    dined on 04/02/2014
  • "Hearty, wholesome and tasty food. My salmon was cooked to perfection. Decor is quirky (rustic/ industrial) ands there's a great ambience. Very enjoyable lunch."
    dined on 03/02/2014
  • "We had brunch here on a Saturday! Very lively and busy which shows popularity! Eggs Benedict was perfect and the house breakfast the same! You leave feeling satisfied but not that guilty, bleugh, bloated feeling you can get from a big breakfast! Spot on!!"
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "The Plough has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and exceptional food, what more can you ask for !"
    dined on 30/01/2014
  • "3 of us had a very pleasant lunch - if anything we over-ate, which might account for the surprisingly hefty £72 bill (including 2 pints of beer and a ginger beer). Meat is everywhere, and in generous helpings, and tasty too. We enjoyed beef, pork and lamb. But I would steer clear of the bitter chocolate tart (not quite chocolatey enough to overcome the glucose syrup in the recipe)."
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "Love the busy-ness of The Plough at Harborne. Family groups, groups of friends, couples, older people, the whole cross section seem to use this venue. Only disappointment is lack of decent dessert menu. Make sure you book as it gets very busy particularly at weekends."
    dined on 12/01/2014
  • "The Plough offers consistency in every area. First start frequenting about 5 years ago, have moved away and around the UK and now back in Harborne. Great food at all times, generally friendly and efficient service and a great range of good quality beverages. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for and is worth every penny. There are some great offers in the week on food, and it's 241 if you've invested in a taste card!"
