    We enjoyed a very pleasant evening. The food was very good although my pizza would have been improved with more toppings and less crust. However we thought that the cost of the wine was extortionate! The service was attentive although a little slow probably because it was a busy evening. I shall go again but drink beer rather than wine!

    We usually enjoy eating at The Plough. It wasn’t busy at the time we were booked. So no real real reason why we received such poor, indifferent service. Our waitress seemed totally unaware of the needs of the tables within her service area. It may be some time before we return to the Plough after this recent experience!

    The food was absolutely phenomenal! Absolutely delicious. My elderly grandmother who doesn’t eat much nearly cleaned her whole plate because it was that delicious. The staff are lovely, welcoming, kind and very caring. Thank you to the gentleman who kindly gave my nan his fan to keep her cool. We had a lovely time for my farewell meal and I’m sure everyone will be back soon!

    Food is always good never had a bad meal. Drinks are just getting ridiculously expensive especially the wine - £33.50 for a bottle of Prosecco is too much. Our waiter was extremely friendly but this can vary and some of the staff do not appear as happy as they used to be pre pandemic even though a tip is included every time.

    Really love the plough and come often but have to say service wasn't good today. A lot of people not really knowing what they are doing, not listening to orders correctly and getting orders wrong. Sorry guys might have to go somewhere else next time.

    Service was terrible considering it was fairly quiet. Very difficult to get the staffs attention. Ordered food online as it appeared that way would be quicker, food came and there were items missing- we were then told because we ordered on our phones it didn’t give them the chance to say they didn’t have any left. Food was okay but the service is a huge part of dining out so I would not return here for this reason.

    Ordered the Caesar Salad and it was very poor. Looked unappealing (like a dog’s dinner) and taste was overpowered with baco bits. Really unappealing and unpleasant. This was my first experience and unfortunately I won’t be a returning customer.
