Come here probably once a month, found this place last year. Came again 2nd Jan. The food is amazing, Sunday roast for both of us. Desert and coffee also, the latte is hot and how a latte should be made! Can't fault it, returning again this week. You will not be disappointed, really enjoy this relaxing retreat.

Me and my dad decided to meet for lunch pretty much spur of the moment on New Years Day. No tables were available in the restaurant, but food is now served in the bar. Having drank in this pub on and off for about 20 years, I was more than happy to eat in the bar. The bar has been... More

Great food, great prices and wonderful staff. Only as a tiny tiny little negative point, the car park is not great and I imagine at times it may be difficult to find a space, I am not sure if there is an over flow car park, I can see that the car park may put some people off going, which... More

Unbelievably good - great food all round for a party of 20, nobody was unhappy with any part of their meal. Fast service, polite staff, really lovely place to eat and a great location. Couldn't give any higher praise, especially at such a good price point.

Having previously had the best Sunday lunch ever at the Plough, I was disappointed with their Christmas offering. The Aricini balls were stodgy, the stuffing and pigs in blankets barely cooked and the rest of it was average. I realise it's difficult at Christmas time so I'll probably give them another chance. The service was excellent.

The food is excellent with generous, even too generous (?) portions and plenty of vegetables. The staff are friendly and attentive. Booking is usually needed at busy times. The environment is tidy and well maintained although not particularly sophisticated. No children under 14 allowed so that rules out families.

Thank BalletRusse
