Since the start of the year much has happened in the World and many businesses have had to make changes and adapt. The Plough is no exception. Our core values will always remain the same and providing great hospitality will always be at the forefront of what we do.

The Plough will now be a fully seated establishment; customers will be greeted at the front door and led to a table. We only book tables for eating.

The tables in the garden will not be reservable.

We will be serving a reduced menu that will mainly consist of Pizzas along with a couple of mains and salads. We will not be offering 2-4-1 offers when we first re-open.

We are open from 11am – 10pm daily. We aim to bring back brunch in the near future.

We will be encouraging all customers to order from their table using their mobile device. This will also take care of the payment and we will then deliver the food and the drinks to your table.

We will no

The service was noticeably lacking when we visited on Sunday. There were so many mix-ups with our order, which was quite frustrating. The service is usually top-notch and I think this was out worst experience to date. It is such a shame as it is one of our favourite pubs, really hope it was just a one-off.

Online booking was easy, arrangements regarding covid protection in the pub were excellent, the food was delicious as ever, ordering and paying was efficiently done via mobile, service was quick and friendly. No smoking even outside another plus point. The whole experience was delightful and we cannot recommend the Plough highly enough.

We come here quite regularly when I visit my daughter at University of Birmingham, great food at a reasonable price and the Covid controls are great and make you feel that they are control.

Our first visit but it won’t be our last! Super food, the best brunch we’ve had in a long time. Fresh & tasty meals which were beautifully presented. The Plough is a relaxed and friendly environment and children were welcomed well - great to have good quality food in an accessible venue. Well done!

Excellent food and service as ever. As one dish came a bit late (but not very) the waiter took it off the bill which was very generous

The Plough is by far the best pub in the area. In a weird way it is even better now they have order to your table as there is no queueing at the bar (which was its previous issue). Decor is great, staff are lovely, procedures are perfect. Food has always been top notch. Expect to pay a little more for the privelage.

Good quality food and good healthy options. A big of a faff having to order on your phone, but they’re doing their best. Would be nice to have the salads back.

Met a friend here for a late lunch. While the service was generally good we were made to feel we were being a bit of a nuisance by asking to place our order in person rather than by using an app. The food itself was fine and well presented.

Lovely Covid safe pub, limited menu but sufficient variety to choose from , on entrance after cleaning your hands your taken to a table and can either order from their app menu or order via the waiter, I managed to use their app which surprisingly easy to use after couple of errors on my part , I paid via the app too . All in all a very good experience and service from the waiter s , will surely be returning

Wouldn’t let my friend in I was meeting for lunch who had a pram (said my name wasn’t on the list when I was already seated on the table under my name.
Watched her then really struggle to get into the restaurant. The burger I had was so greasy compared to last time I had visited, over all We were really excited to go back and support the restaurant but really disappointed with the service, social distance doesn’t mean bad manners.

Really good Covid control - felt organised and safe.

Food is always good here - nicely presented so a feast for the eyes as well as the the tongue. I am kind of over sour dough though! So hard to cut and chew!

I miss the bottomless coffee they used to do but accept it's a small inconvenience!

Brunch for two including a couple of drinks each was over £30. It's a treat, not an everyday place.

It was ok once we were seated at a decent table. 3 of us dined and ordered pizza, menu should have stated what exactly toppings were on pizza, as my son could not eat most of it because of all the extra bits on top which he does not like. Also the addition of a hair in it didn’t help. It’s the third time I’ve been here in the last 6 weeks or so, other times were great. I do think it’s over priced though.

They were very understanding when I phoned to explain that we would be 10 mins late.

The food, service and ambiance are always outstanding and it must be said - the choice of music is always amazing.

Overall a great mid-afternoon experience.
