We had an excellent meal at the Plough this week. Big portions so brilliant value for money and both our meals were delicious. It was very busy so the service was a little slow but we were happy to wait and soak in the atmosphere in this lovely country pub. Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting the Cotswolds.

We were a party of 5 meeting up for a Sunday lunch on a very hot day. The restaurant was lovely and cool thank goodness. The manager was attentive and friendly and food delicious.
Perfect venue for us.
Recommend the roast beef 😋

Really disappointing meal. We went on a recommendation from a stranger. One meal of four was very good, the others over priced, under portioned and not nice. We sat in a cramped concrete yard accompanied by the sounds and smells of the kitchen. The manager was friendly though. A most unfortunate end to our holiday.

Excellent food and best dessert! My partner loved his Wagyu beef burger and said it was the best he's ever had, crispy squid for starter was delicious and the fish and chips did not disappoint either - special mention to the chips - the dishes were kept simple and well executed with good quality products. For dessert the Eton mess and the chocolate brownie were both fantastic and the best we have ever had! Again classic pub desserts but very well prepared the flavours were stunning, they were so good I could go back just for them. All this with relaxed and friendly service made for a lovely evening visiting the Cotswolds, I very much recommend!

We booked a table on a Wednesday and it was very quiet, just us and one other table. However lack of ambience was made up for by the food. We both had steaks and they were outstanding! Service was excellent too. Fantastic would definitely visit again...might just pick a busier night!

Firstly the food was fabulous, however we were not able to enjoy it and in fact left half way through our meal leaving over half the food on each plate because the tables were surrounded by mosquitoes. Whilst I appreciate this was not the restaurants fault, I was a little disappointed to be charged full price for a meal we could only eat half of because the food was being plagued by the mosquitoes. We were situated indoors in the bar area.
We were very disappointed because the actual food was lovely, and service was very good.

Pre booked outdoor table for lunch. Sat at a table at the front of the pub (there is a rear garden and courtyard but they were busy). Road at the front is quiet so no issue with the table. Had sandwiches (prawn and local ham salad) together with a couple of beers and coke. Friendly seevice. Lovely traditional English pub. Nothing to fault.

Absolutely bloody, top notch Sunday lunch. Landlord was welcoming, funny and open hearted. We shared the poached egg, halloumi, spinach & sourdough starter and then the Roast Pork & Beef. My wife was especially complimentary and she’s hard a person to please. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, washed down with a excellent Fleurie. Do go there! Baz

Food was great! Unfortunately they had run out of chips and didn’t bring our drinks for a while, plus starts came before our first drinks which was abit disappointing. BUT the manager couldn’t of been more apologetic, and lovely! So Overall would recommend, but maybe not when it’s raining/windy!
