    The plough was changing owners in 3 days so it was a very restricted menu not dining food as we have had before. .even though there was a reduced charge. Disappointing as it was a special occasion. They should not have accepted the booking or we should have been warned before hand

    Apparently the Plough is closing down so some items on the menu were not available. The quality of food was at best average. I felt sorry for the waitress who was very hard working but had to deal with several customer complaints as well as serve everybody and work the bar, she deserved a medal!

    Booking very easy, pleasant surroundings, staff all polite and helpful, disappointed there was no Sunday roast, menu could have been more inspiring also we could not have a coffee served after our lunch. On the whole we did enjoy the fish and chips.

    Menu was not as advertised on the internet, nor as extensive. Possibly due to new owners not having had the time to update the information. Did find it odd though, that a hotel restaurant didn't have steak on the new menu. Dining area lacked atmosphere, and the furnishings are somewhat drab and in need of a lift. Possibly new owners could consider table cloths to add a bit of colour. Standards matter and first impressions tend to count, just outside the main entrance is a planter with no plants, but full of cigarette ends.

    Reduced menu. Food took ages to come. Was unappetising when it arrived. Staff were trying but kitchen letting everything down.

    Really enjoyed our food, was lovely and staff were lovely all though there Easter Sunday offer of children eating free with an adult is misleading as we were charged for the meals , apart from that it was lovely

    We arrived for a 6pm dinner booking and needed to leave by 7.20pm. Our order was taken promptly and drinks arrived but the food didn’t. By the time we asked if our meal was pending (some 45 minutes after ordering) and staff discovered 10 minutes later that the order was lost, it was too late to start from scratch again and we had to leave and grab a sandwich from the supermarket. We weren’t charged for the glass of wine I’d ordered. I emailed the manager the next day to ask if there had been a particular issue that evening and though he replied to ask for my phone number, which I sent, 2 weeks further on I have not heard from him. Although this review requires that I score the food, we didn’t have any and there isn’t a not applicable button. What we saw coming out to other tables looked nice. We were hungry when we arrived and even hungrier when we left!
