A friendly pub-restaurant located on the edge of Southampton in the village of Bursledon, the Plough is the epitome of a Traditional English Country Pub. Beloved by its guests the Plough is surrounded by a stunning garden with plenty of seating where guests can relax with a pint of Badger Beer or one of the tempting dishes from the pub’s extensive menu. Inside you will find roaring log fires and oak beams which give a traditional English Country Pub atmosphere - cosy in the winter and glorious in the summer.

Service was slow, especially the time taken for food to be brought out and the pub wasn't busy at the time. It took an hour for our food to come out which resulted in us having to rush our meals due to needing to get my daughter to work

Went for a sunday lunch on a very cold day . The staff were lovely and the food was delicious it was just unfortunate that we were sat right by the back door which was opened every two minutes by people coming in and out . It was freezing and it would have been nice if the wood burner next to us had been lit . When i book again will def ask for a different seating. Otherwise the roast was really delicious and the staff were really nice and attentive considering how busy they were

Completely changed from what it used to be, food incredibly over priced and rubbish servings. Was made clear there was one chicken roast left and when it came to ordering it was still free so I asked for it then half a hour later a waiter came over and said sorry but just as you were looking at the avalibility someone else was too so your have to have somthing else. If I knew this earlier I would have left the restraunt as I'm a fussy eater.
It took so long for a waiter/waitress to come over and we spent over a hour waiting for out bill! Over a hour waiting on food too and our drinks were only filled half up and when asked for a jug of water the lady said yes but never brang it. Defiantly would not reccomend it!!

Thankyou very much for a great meal on Sunday. We were a large group celebrating 2 family birthdays and we felt well looked after by the staff at the pub. The childrens play area outside was a huge bonus as the little ones were able to run about together while we relaxed. The food was all well timed, tasty and fresh. We will be back!

When the Plough was opened after its refurbishment, it was wonderful. The food great; the atmosphere great. It had that cosy, special feel about it. Now, although it still has that lovely feel about it, I have found that the atmosphere has got less intimate. I understand that it is very difficult to keep noise levels down, and some people have naturally loud laughs, but it can be off-putting. The food choices have become quite staid and not very exciting. We have found that the steaks have been tough and chewy. It is a great shame because it is local to us and we really like the place. The service is second to none. The staff very polite and willing to help with anything.

1. Difficult a situation though this is it would be beneficial for staff to have a quiet, polite word with the 'guardians' of young children perpetually coming in and out of the restaurant via an outside door on a cold night necessitating a group of young adults needing to be moved away from that door.

2. For us the only downside to an excellent meal was that the manager, Steve, a university friend of our younger son, was not on duty!

I go to this restaurant from time to time. This time there was an improvement in that the waiting staff were attentive during the meal. I also did not have to wait for them to bring the bill or the card machine. Well done!
