Called in due to another pub full and what a fantastic place. It was rather busy which shows how popular it is. Quickly shown a table and drinks/meals ordered. The staff were very friendly and helpful and their service was really good. The food was typical pub grub but was well cooked and well presented. Prices were reasonable and the... More

As someone who seems to find it easier to write a critical review than a complimentary one I now find myself in the unusual position of taking the time to sing the praises of the Plough Inn. Without going into unnecessary detail our visit was a joy. Food was of a very high standard - service excellent by the two... More

We very much enjoyed our evening of October 8th 2016. The food was excellent, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We found the building very impressive and the art gallery was a real bonus.

Our first visit for years, and found it much improved and very busy. Pleasant staff, prompt service and nice pub food at a reasonable price. We noticed that, when a table became free, it was properly washed and reset before new customers were shown there. Just as it should, but often sadly, isn'nt.Now on our list of local places for...

A short stay in the area, visited The Plough twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Good value steaks and a comprehensive specials board. A very well kept Black Sheep ale. Staff efficient and friendly, prepared to modify and alter their menu to suit the customers' needs. All in all, a very well run establishment. Highly recommended.

Thank Chris T
