We offer a broad range of Tapas, and a choice of English and European dishes prepared with local ingredients, utilising the fish landed in Rye and the tremendous lamb beef and game from the Romney Marsh and shutout ding farms.
We have a lovely garden with great views of the Brede Valley with the sea as a backdrop.
We visiting the plough yesterday
And couldn’t recommend it enough, the tapas is delicious.
And the staff are very accommodating.
Would definitely visit again
With Simon and Toby otherwise either overseas or managing other aspects of their businesses. I was welcomed by the expertly appointed staff who presented themselves in such a friendly manner that absolutely reflects the style and genuineness that Simon and Toby have developed over the years. Our food was served in good time and was of high quality in every aspect.
The country atmosphere and high level of service made our meal memorable.
Amazing ambience and super friendly staff. Tapas with a view of British countryside was such a remarkable combination. Strongly recommend if you're nearby.
Very friendly and dog friendly too, which was a bonus. We felt that the menu choices were limited and the Tapas was not good unless you were into seafood or game which one of our party was not. The landlord forgot to order our desserts and disappeared! At second attempt we got them. Coffee machine dysfunctional so very limited choice. Would suggest a return to normal pub food menu before we return. To be fair what we had was well presented and tasty but pricey and insufficient in quantity. I was still peckish when I got home and I have the appetite of an anorexic gnat! Locals and dogs very friendly though...
Four of us had lunch during the week and must say that the pub is very attractive in its layout and colour scheme. We were more or less obliged to choose from the tapas menu, due to poor choice of main meals, plus one special. The tapas offering consisted of half pint of prawns, whitebait, potted shrimp in rancid butter, all of which you can get in any average pub, although the grilled peppers were OK. Unfortunately there was no atmosphere as we were the only people in attendance, and the gentleman looking after us did his best. Probably would not visit again, more through disappointment in the anticipation of better things.
Good ambience, nice views, welcoming staff, friendly chef homely food
Excellent service and delicious food in a homely and relaxed pub.
We went to the Plough for Sunday lunch and first impressions were great. Lovely pub, delicious smells and a great view from the back. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The only downside, and it is only a small one, was only one option for me as a vegetarian. We were offered a veggie roast if I wanted but I went for the one on the menu. The meal was absolutely delicious so no complaints there but just a niggle with choice. I’m sure the menu during the week will have more choice. But I would still definitely recommend and go back ourselves.
Delicious new menu and great service as always. Great spot for all occasions.
DISAPPOINTING ... we booked for Valentines evening, after being sent a message my email. It stated that a chef from a restaurant we appreciated, would be starting at The Plough and that there was to a special menu on the evening we booked. We duly arrived and were warmly welcomed - no problem there. However, when the waitress asked what we'd like to drink we in turn reminded her that their Valentines 'offer' included a free glass of prosecco on arrival. Her response was "Oh! really. Nobody tells be about these things!", but provided the drink free of charge. We proceeded to choose our meals, but were disappointed to find that our mains didn't include potatoes, which were regarded as a 'side' at £3.00 per person. We had opted for the 2 courses at £19.50. This was our second visit to The Plough (our first wasn't a great success either), as we thought that they were making efforts and were prepared to give it a second chance. Sorry, but we doubt we'll be returning soon.
It was a cold wet night as soon as we arrived a lovely warm welcome with a fire going.The glass were on tables gave the room sharpness yet still in a country Pub.Then the smile of the discreet no push waitress allowed to make our choices promoting a relaxed slowdown meal .
The menu was very limited, not good for gluten free and very very overpriced! The deserts were minute at £7 a serving so overall rather disappointed.
Great place, friendly staff, sadly the Sunday roast was a let down 😕
I took my 90 year old mother to the Plough for her birthday lunch. The staff were very accommodating in putting Mum near the fire, away from draughts, and made sure she had cushions for her seat. The service was very good and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this pub to friends.
It was disappointing. Prior visits have been good.
Manager was very accommodating but not much she could do. Highlighted that one of our party was non dairy and non wheat when booked but there were only two possible meals on the menu.
Specials board outside wasn't available on Sunday.
'Roast chicken' appeared to be a roasted chicken breast. Vegetables were aldente but really hard, gravy was thin. Whole dinner was pretty poor actually.
Christmas puddings like a fruit sponge. Good ice cream and sorbets. Coffee was 'thin'.
No one asked how the meal was or we would have told them.
Generally not great unfortunately.
Superb meal and great atmosphere. The manager Gracie is a delight to meet and very customer focused. Superb place to go.
Great little find of a pub, very relaxed and friendly staff made it a pleasure to frequent. Great that we could take the dog with no bother, if I’d have know you could rent the rooms upstairs I might have stayed and dug in for the day and evening. Will defo revisit if in the area again.
Definitely recommend dining here the food was really nice and filling. Intimate and cosy setting with a lovely views of the surrounding area.
Really tentative service from Toby he could be a better host.
Looking forward to coming back there again in the summer.
This place is amazing. That’s all to be said. I would highly recommend the plough to any one. We are from Kent and it was our first time in there. We was made to feel like locals. Everybody was so friendly and helpful and grace was amazing. She made us feel very welcome and loved our time there.
Thank you and we will be back very soon
It's always a pleasure to eat at the Plough in East Sheen - cosy, welcoming, informal and good value food
We couldn't fault the welcome or the service we received, and the ambience was good. However we thought the menu was rather unimaginative, just very basic pub grub and rather expensive for what we got. They could certainly do some work on the presentation of the food if nothing else. We had certainly expected more from the way the restaurant was presented and the reviews it received, although I did notice they tended to focus on the service rather than the food.
Very limited lunch menu. Only I fish choice for main course 🙁
Lovely local village pub,very friendly welcome,lovely meal , in a pleasant atmosphere, and the waiters (grace) was so friendly made us feel so welcome
The plough is a proper country pub with delicious food and great service!
Our third visit for Sunday lunch - as always friendly and efficient service and delicious roasts with plenty of meat and good selection of vegetables. Excellent pint of Harvey's Sussex Bitter to accompany the meal.
Scrummy puds too.
Friendly as always. Good service. Tho as we had late lunch some items on menu weren’t available
Great service and food for our big family lunch. Recommended!
As a vegetarian/vegan on holiday, we google searched for a country pub that served a nut-roast or veg option. The Plough comes up top in the search, and in trip adviser has reviews on there fantastic nut-roast! I reserved a table, specified wrote on booking that we was a veg/vegan. I know they got the message because upon arrival the nice lady automatically said would you like me to put through your food order. Assuming that there was probably only one option for us on the menu , I agreed yes! when the food arrive the vegan roast was pretty much a plate of boiled vegetables and roast potatoes. As you can imagine I was a little disappointed about the lake of creativity with my country pub roast. When i asked where was the nut-roast the lady apologised and said they didn't offer that anymore.
1) That would have been good to inform the costumer when booking to give them the opportunity to find somewhere else...
2) inform the customer upon arrival?
3) The chef had enough notice to be a little more creative... even if that meant getting some veggie sausages from the local supermarket!
We had all been to The Plough before on a Sunday a few months ago. We had really enjoyed the food so came back fo an early Saturday meal before a concert. Two us had fish and chips- deep fried breaded rather than battered- overcooked and both portions had obviously been cooked at the same time- one twice the thickness of the other so the smaller one was very dry and even more overdone than the bigger one! The other two guests ordered the chicken curry which also turned out to be breaded deep fried and - yes very dry! Nice enough curry sauce on which the chicken sat. Sadly we won't come back.
Great food very friendly and helpful staff could not do more to make your meal
Very disappointing.unacceptable wait for the main course and pretty poor quality specially the roast potatoes.very overpriced for what we got
The Plough in East Sheen has a good value and tasty menu in a nice informal setting both inside and outside in its patio area. It's always deservedly popular with locals.
had a good evening - we were very mixed age group from 7 to 85 and it suited all - even relaxed after the meal the played dominos and cards
We were really pleased to have found this pub, eaten here a few times now and haven’t been disappointed. Friendly staff, willing to please...nice food.
Fantastic food Lovely atmosphere. Definitely would Recommend this Plough for food .very Friendly love little pub will definitely be going back when we visit highly recommended.five stars
The Plough was a great find. Amazing food had the chefs tapas that i would highly recommend. The service was great with two young men taking the helm with a smile. I had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert, didn't matter it was 28 in the shade enjoyed it a lot 🙂
First visit and we were favourably impressed by everything. Food, service and surroundings were great.
Will become a regular place to visit
The food was a bit disappointing. We had the tapas to start with but it wasn’t up to standard. The fish and chips main meal was good though
The welcome received at The Plough was outstanding - Grace was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu and range of beers.
Food was well cooked and tasty.
Would definitely come here again if we were in the area.
Never lets you down, excellent food and service. Also Dog friendly
