My favourite Italian pub, excellent food, friendly and helpful staff. Lovely old building with a more modern but sympathetic restaurant area. Very good value for the quality of the food.

Great potential with helpful hardworking staff, freshly cooked food, lovely venue and location but SOOO slow food taking 40 mins to an hour to arrive. Not altogether brilliant for the friend with us who has a life threatening allergic reaction to eggs. I had indicated this on the comment section when making the booking. There was just one dessert she could eat - and it wasn’t a available. Chips weren’t safe because of cross contamination from egg containing items using the same fryer. Almost a really lovely evening.

I always love going to The Plough, the food is always amazing, the staff are always welcoming and make good recommendations. Highly recommend the Buffalina pizza and the black ink spaghetti with mixed seafood. Good food, good wine, good Aperol Spritz, good company.

Been here several times now. Wonderful country pub with excellent Italian food in genuine wood fired pizza ovens. I usually treat myself to a calzone with lots of extras but tonight I opted for some linguine. Awesome tastes , just love this place.

Good pizzas but not worthy nearly 90 minutes wait.
Take away orders seem to have priority over restaurant customers.

We had a lovely evening in the restaurant. The food was excellent. My dish - the seafood stew was really good and was recommended by the waiter. The service was good not intrusive but not left alone. We will definitely be coming back.

The rice ball starters and pizza are what I recommend highly. The mains are overall a little average and can lack flavour (in my opinion)

Unfortunately the break between the starters and the main course was very long and with a young child not acceptable and there was no apology offered

We have eaten at The Plough a few times before and the food was once again at a consistently high standard. The only fault was that the service was not attentive after our initial order was taken.

We were an early if not first booking for lunch mid week.

There was just one person manning the bar and trying to deliver rale service. We were a largish party of eight with small children. Drinks ordered ar bar and taken in the front garden in the sunshine all very pleasent. Preordered ours starters and sat down. A little long in coming so ordered mains.

Couple of other tables arrived and barman was at sea. Refresh drinks were late in coming. Other tables received their mains before us and no prospect of ours arriving.

Like most bad situation information and communication is fundemental. After we started to get impatient about what was going on the kiddies meals were served. The pizza was well under cooked and a sign all was not going well in the kitchen.

The excuse offered as an 11am power cut but the wood pizza oven was working so there was more to it.

It looked like a place that does better. The appitizers we had were good. Different but good.

There was little atmosphere in the restau. Service was slow and the landlord seemed stressed and preoccupied. Food was fine but the atmosphere detracted as there were few other diners and no buzz about the place - it needed pace.

We had a great meal served by a fantastic waitress our only complaint was we waited a very long time for our main course longer than one would expect even though it was freshly cooked...apart from that our experience was brilliant & we will definitely be going back again

whwn we got to the plough I noticed how quiet it was and a few people were outside but there really was no need to book. Empty tables didn't give me great confidence. The starters were quite good but our mains seemed like they had been heated up from the day before. The pizza was probably the freshest. So slightly disappointing and wouldn't go back.
