I come to this pub quite often on walks with friends and am never disappointed. The menu is quite large, so you can have a big, hot lunch or one of their delicious sandwiches. In the summer there is lots of space to sit outside in the garden and enjoy the sunshine.

Huge menu with a big choice. Delicious food and very friendly staff. Highly recommend. Think it's worth booking as they were full when we were there.

This is a very good pub with an extensive menu very welcoming atmosphere. The service was excellent as was the food and drinks we could not fault it. Would recommend eating here. The pub was packed not surprisingly.

We arrived on what turned out to be the first warm day of the year meaning the pub struggled to cope with the deluge. We waited around 50 mins for our food to arrive. When it did it was very good apart from the liver which was overcooked and desperately needing more sauce.

With very good reviews and personal recommendations we expected better. The starters were not good. The fish cake was obviously not home made and had an unpleasant chemical taste in the crust. The goat's cheese was very average. The hake was well cooked but the sea bass was overlooked and a bit dry. I explained to the girl who cleared... More

Went to The Plough Inn last night, wasn't very busy only had a few tables booked. We turned up at about 8pm and they stopped serving food at 8:30pm. Once we ordered our drink we were very rushed into ordering our food at the bar before we were even able to sit at our table which as a paying customer... More

The hotel is full of character and the bar offers delightful seating with afternoon sun to warm your back (when it is not raining of course!) Food is hearty and the menu is imaginative and if you are looking for classic favourite including venison and beer battered chips they are on offer. Rooms are a good size, beds are comfortable...
