Charming, characterful village inn serving excellent food. Went for Sunday lunch with friends. The food was fresh and well-cooked. Service was also excellent - the staff were on the ball, polite and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Great food and welcome. Beer is pretty good too! Visited before in February and was just as impressed this time. Would be my local if I lived closer.

You are treated to a very warm welcome, the dining room is lovely and full of character. Tables re in keeping with the older style of the building with space good.
The service is so friendly and the chap helping us (guy I think) was a very nice and helpful person, as we're all the service staff.
The food was just perfect, beautifully prepared and tastey food and really fair prices. However the sweats were a knock out. One comment from our table was that the Eaton mess was the best she'd had.
Top job and great place....thanks

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.
