    We ate lunch at the Plough on a Saturday. The landlord was really welcoming and the whole atmosphere is buzzy and friendly. He was happy for the music speaker near our table to be turned off. There is a wide menu with something for everyone. The food is delicious - with lots of fresh ingredients. Table service is very efficient but the reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that written menus would make it a lot easier rather than standing by the boards. Also one of our group asked for no onions in her salad but there were onions there so she had to extract them. Not a major problem though and it certainly didnt spoil our experience.

    Lovely country pub with a good atmosphere. Staff are friendly and attentive. We went on a Tuesday night and the place was buzzing with diners and drinkers. I had steak which was cooked perfectly my partner is vegetarian and was catered for with a tasty veggie burger Would definitely recommend.

    The landlord and staff were very friendly and did there utmost to make us feel comfortable. However we did feel the food was slightly overpriced, comments from party members, not enough chips, the shortbread biscuit with the posset could have been better, the meringue in the Eaton mess was not homemade. Unfortunately we had a couple with 2 small children next to us with continuous noise from an iPad or similar and table banging which did not help the ambience! We may come again?

    We return to The Plough time after time over many years..Guy is the best host and the food is fabulous. This is a lovely cosy Cotswold pub..we sat on the cosy leather sofas in front of the open log fire with our drinks. Then to our table for lunch. Crumble and custard for pudding.

    The plough has lots of character and charm about it. The landlord was very welcoming and before showing us to our table he went through the blackboard specials with us. We both chose the wagyu burger which was delicious and I would definitely recommend. If your looking for a pub with good food and service to match then I can highly recommend the plough.

    What a find. This lovely village pub offered such a choice of freshly prepared dishes , we struggled to decide but we’re not disappointed. Grilled fillet of fresh mackerel, superb! My partner ordered a delicious steak whilst I chose Cornish Sole with samphire and crushed potatoes. Wine and food were sensibly priced too. Friendly efficient staff, we hope to be back very soon.

    Great, cosy and welcoming place. The landlord was cheerful and and friendly and his son ( chef) produced a couple of lovely lunchtime budget meals . We were so impressed we have booked for the full Christmas Dinner in December and told our neighbours in Charlbury to give it a try .
