Fish & Chips two for the price of one offer was extended to include Cornish mackerel that was absolutely delicious and the Fish & Chips were first rate. Four very happy diners. 😋😋😋😋

We arrived slightly behind our booked table. The Plough was very busy so our meal took a while to arrive but that was our fault and we had no complaints on that score. When the food came it was hot and delicious. Thank you The Plough. 😊

We enjoyed the meal very much. Pub grub type menu but well cooked and slightly different and better than the norm. High locally grown food content. Would come back again.

It's a little bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Roaring log fire, decent menu and friendly service. The food was actually really good (rack of lamb followed by Baileys cheesecake) but I just couldn't rate somewhere that ran out of mashed potato as a five. If I was in the area I would certainly visit again.

Great local, excellent food, smashing staff and landlord. Loved Oscar the pub dog. A bit drafty in the wind, sat a long way from the open fire, but more than made up for by the bonhomie of the atmosphere - will definitely return.

Very nice Sunday lunch for both is us. The beef and sea bass were both excellent. The deserts were also fantastic.
Service slowed a little bit but mainly due to a group of 20 or so ramblers who came in as lunch service was drawing to a close. Landlord and staff were all very good and cheerful which is great to see! Would happily come back if passing nearby again. Cheers!

We enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch at this lovely village pub - roast beef and roast pork with all the trimmings followed by apple crumble (the best Sunday Lunch we have had in years). Superb food and friendly first class service.

Went along for Sunday Lunch after hearing raving reviews from Friends in our Village.
Food was good, comparable to what you'd expect from a Village pub [not the run of the mill carvery]. Staff were attentive.
The website menu needs to be updated cost wise, it was different to the pub menu prices. The heating needed to be put on as it was quite chilly in the dining area.
Not withstanding this, overall it made a nice change of venue.

We ate here to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. His parents regularly frequent The Plough and Guy (the landlord) was incredibly friendly and went out of his way to ensure my husband had a memorable birthday. The food was very good with generous portion sizes. We will definitely be going back!

Went for my wedding anniversary. The welcome was excellent and the staff friendly. Service was good as was the food, in my case a steak dinner which came as part of a special Thursday evening deal which included a bottle of wine. I have used this pub previously and have always found it to be a nice place to eat and drink.

We have been to the Plough about a dozen times since we moved into the area a year ago. Guy the landlord is unfailingly friendly and courteous, even when he is run off his feet. The atmosphere is great - typical village pub, the menu is imaginative and the food is always good. Be prepared to wait if the pub is busy as the kitchen is small and everything is freshly cooked. We love it!

A great village pub, as they should be with a good range of really good food, a very welcoming Landlord and friendly efficient staff. Friday night was busy with locals, some eating some just in there for a pint with their friends, in my book that's a good sign. It isn't flash or full of bling or a contrived "Ye Olde Country Pubbe" interior that the chains seem to think represents good taste especially when their food is prepared off site and it's a re heat job. The Chef is the Landlord's son and does he know how to cook a steak to perfection. It's a dog friendly pub and there were several in, all well behaved, personally we don't have a problem with that. All in all a great find.

We have eaten many times at The Plough, in various sizes of group. We have always had a wonderful time with great food, reasonably priced. Guy and his team are excellent hosts. I would particularly recommend the Tuesday night two-for-one Fish and Chips.
