    First visit and extremely welcoming staff. Despite being a busy sunday lunchtime an indoor table was found for the two of us and our dog. Promptly served and lovely sunday lunch and cheeseboard to follow. Also great Adnams Broadside ale and Kingswood cider. Will definitely visit again.

    Lovely country pub with excellent food and great service. 3 Blackboard menus for starters, mains and desserts. Wonderfully wide choice and several vegan options which staff are happy to make vegetarian (with choice of cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese) if you ask. The owner Guy is friendly and took trouble to make sure we had everything we needed then left us to enjoy our meals. Good food, good value and good service with no fuss. Nothing not to like! We’ll be back.

    I am a regular customer at the restaurant of this inn and my regularity there is due to my total satisfaction with the meals which the landlord and his son produce, the service which is provided and the general ambience of the surroundings. It is always a very pleasant occasion to visit The Plough and undoubtedly the landlord's efficiency and rapport with his customers has much to do with it. I have nothing but praise for this establishment.

    Perfect place to stop on a countryside walk from Charlbury. Second time I’ve returned for the deliciously crafted ‘posh fish finger sandwich’. Friendly, unpretentious and laid-back atmosphere. Sat out back under a cherry tree in full blossom - lovely.

    The menu was excellent and we really enjoyed the roe deer liver. Like many pubs at the moment, it was understaffed and so it took an hour to be served our meal - they told us there would be a delay but it was longer than expected. But it’s a lovely pub so a few drinks and good conversation helped pass the time.

    The food was excellent and we would dine there again. Generally would consider The Plough to be a great local. The waitress was really attentive and helpful. The church bench seating was a bit rustic and uncomfortable for a longer evening. My only criticism was I specifically asked for as much isolation in seating as possible due to vulnerability. which they had clearly tried to do in putting me in the far end of the dining area of the bar, but unfortunately that is clearly where the non eating clientele normally like to congregate so in a short space of time the area was packed with non eating locals with no room to move and definitely not COVID friendly. If you want a quieter meal ask for the dining area to the right of the bar.

    Together with guests, I have visited The Plough at Finstock on a number of occasions, always for a meal with a drink. I like this hostelry for many reasons: its old world charm, its ambience, its superb food and the choices of food on offer and, not least for the warm welcome and service that are always offered by Guy and his staff. I have no hesitation in recommending The Plough to anyone who may be looking for a relaxing lunchtime or evening meal with a drink and good company.

    My guests and I have visited The Plough at Finstock before and, in my case, a number of times before so we all knew what to expect: a good choice of food, excellently prepared and presented, together with efficient and good humoured service in a delightful 'olde worlde' setting. We received all of these aspects in abundance and left as very happy and contented customers with the intention of calling again, again and again!

    Unfortunately we had fillet steak, chips, roasted tomatoes on a bed of about 6 spinach leaves for £24. Is fillet steak supposed to be so thin it resembles minute steak ? Not succulent at all. Apparently it was fish night with 2 for 1 on a nice fish and chips. Steak night was 2 days later. Found this out only when paying the bill ! Go to central London and spend £24 and you'll get a proper steak.

    We had a long wait after the shared starter for our main dishes ..around 45 minutes. Opinions re the food varied, depending on what was chosen, 2 sausage and mash dishes,fine not exceptional. The burger similarly rated. The Pollack was very tasty and well cooked but the pasta dish adequate but not interesting. The service and welcome were friendly and attentive.

Great menu choice and everything is fresh.... it was difficult to decide so we ended up sharing lots of dishes! Looking forward to our next visit... which will be very soon.

    I thought the place was very charming set in its own village. We received a warm welcome once we arrived. The food was delicious and service was great. As we are not locals people came across to chat to us which made us feel very welcome. The cost of our meal was what we expected for a 2 course. I would certainly visit again if I was in the area and would also recommend a friend.
