Paid a random visit on Friday evening with my family. All the staff were incredibly friendly and made us all feel very welcome. The burgers were excellent, portions are absolutely huge so you won't go home feeling hungry!

A friend and I ate in the bar which was friendly and homely. Decor is somewhat dated but comfortable. The staff were really helpful and service was very good. BUT, as the title of the review suggests, the main thing was the liver and bacon. UTTERLY delicious!!! I have a real thing for liver and this really was something special.... More

Hello Rowan, Unfortunately I believe you have reviewed a different Plough as we do not have liver & bacon on our menu....though my husband wishes that we do. It does seem people are muddling these pubs as the previous review is much about the same, Appreciate the time you took anyway and should you visit East Hendred then by all... More

I ate a Thai noodle thing. Very nice and fresh. Staff reasonably friendly compared with the rest of South Oxfordshire. Dull generic decor similar to a Harvester but OK. I'd come again.

Dear Sir/Madam I am a little puzzled to your review and think maybe you have muddled us up with a different "Plough" as you choice of dish is not on our menu and our pub is hardly generic being a 16th Century coaching in full of horse racing memorabilia, perhaps you would check this along with Tripadvisor themselves. Perhaps if... More

Went for a Sunday roast, was charged high-end gastropub prices, but what was delivered was distinctly average. If I'm going to pay that much, I'll not be doing so at The Plough.

Hello Jonathan, We are sorry that you felt disappointed with your Sunday Roast at the weekend, we are not sure if you dined alone or were part of a group but we had lots of other compliments that day, Our prices I feel are not comparable to gastropubs in the same area and usually said to be of good value...

Lovely atmospheric pub with simple and clean interior, decorated with lots of horse racing memorabilia. Couple who run the pub could not be friendlier or more efficient. We were there for Sunday lunch where the options are limited to the type of roast you have. I had chicken, my husband had beef. Served with 5 vegetables plus potatoes, Yorkshire pudding,... More

We discovered it by accident on a rained off walk with the dog. We have been there twice for a Burger lunch (absolutely excellent and I rarely have a burger!) It is so lovely, friendly landlord and landlady and the atmosphere is so warm that we took the family (including 3 year old and 18 months) for Sunday lunch today.... More

Met with friends this lunchtime. Friendly welcome,chatty staff. Large portions of good old fashioned pub grub.Try the steak and ale pie. Delicious! A good point is they cater for people with gluten intolerance with their own small menu.
