We spent our last night in the Cotswolds at the Plough Inn and it was a great way to round off our trip. The food was really good and the service and atmosphere were exceptional. They pub is warm and welding and we finished off our meal with a whiskey by the open fire.

Nice, old, country pub (dating from 1772), food and service were excellent.

My only disappointment was music playing in the background - it detracted from the ambience and didn't fit with the 'oldness' of the pub: but then I'm old... ;)

Great food.

Very welcoming staff. Lovely atmosphere in a traditional pub. Main courses were very good. The 3 chocolate desserts were all delicious. In fact the crunchie tart was declared by one chocoholic diner as the best dessert they’d ever had. We will definitely return.

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.

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!
