We have been here several times as it is our local pub and we would like to see it stay around for a long time. It lacks atmosphere in the dining area and the menu is very ordinary. It would be nice to see some home made offerings and daily specials. A drinks menu would be useful so that the waitress doesn't have to disappear to find out if what you have asked for is something they stock. A bit of imagination is required and it could be a cracking place.

Staff were lovely and welcoming both on arrival and throughout.
The food was lovely and our waiter was fab! - even my 5 year old asked if we could come back and try the dinners on a Sunday!
Good value for money also, thankyou for a lovely evening!

I wanted my first meal out since the first lockdown to be at my local. The Plough didn’t disappoint. A juicy burger, crisp dry fries and a glass of good wine. Thank you. It’s good to be back

Sunday dinner, not very nice at all. Burned Yorkshire, vegetables looked like they had gone straight from the ground to the plate. Still ate it though, was hungry.

A bit disappointed to be honest.
Waited for ages for our meals was just about to ask where they were as diners who had arrived after us were being served their food. Was told ours was just being plated up. Steak was rare and fatty, asked for Medium Rare, the chips were cold had to send it back.
Such a shame love this pub,hope this was a one off

We've recently moved into the village and this was the first visit to our new local pub. It serves good pub grub and as we went on a Tuesday evening it was fairly quiet. We will be back again, especially as we can take our two pooches into the bar area!

The meat was tough the veg under cooked the pigs in a blanket were raw and uneatable.
The gravy was good as were the roast were good. Nice big dish of crumble with a very small jug you would serve milk with a cup of tea. Never seen such a poor presentation.
Would not recommend or re attend

The food was very nice, we had the Southern fried chicken burger and the baked lasagne. They were both hot and tasted very nice. There was only one girl taking and bringing orders but the service was class and there was no extra delay because of this. I will be going again!

We all enjoyed our food. Just a shame that Blue Light Cards were not accepted. This was the only place we'd been to on our week of travels in the Northumberland that did not accept them.

We visited here twice, both times we were very happy with the cleanliness and felt safe with the COVID measures they had put in place. Food was good and staff very friendly and welcoming.
Will definitely re visit if back in the area and would recommend to any visitor.

The Plough has taken all the necessary steps to mitigate the risk of Covid, making this a reassuring place for us to eat - sanitiser on entry, directed to our table (well spaced from others and/or glass screening between), single-use menus, one way system etc.

The food and service was good, and overall good value (with or without the "Eat out to help out" discount)

We were in the area on holiday, and ate there twice ( a recommendation in itself)
