Wonderful meal at the plough in a beautiful setting. Fantastic specials and had the most amazing Baked Alaska for dessert. We found the staff to be very good and accommodating as we had our dog with us. I think the person that left the review...titled ‘do not visit if you are under 50’ was being incredibly unfair. The plough can hardly control the age bracket of other diners! There were x3 30 year olds in our group, we didn’t feel uncomfortable, we thought it was great! Will definitely be back!More

Stopped here for lunch today as we were passing Felt that the staff were somewhat abrupt (all that we had contact with) and of course we were asked if we had booked in a begrudging way as if we were not wanted We had not...so we’re eventually seated in a pleasant area in the garden Of course there were many tables available !!! Our drinks order was taken Drinks delivered and in a little while food order taken I felt that the chap was disappointed at what we had ordered, Welsh rarebit x two (which was recommended by the chap on the table next to us) Food arrived and was excellent. Went inside for the loo and the whole place looked excellent. I felt that the whole place could be spectacular so it is a shame about the service.More

We visited here for the last night of our wales trip for dinner only. We did not stay so cannot comment on the hotel. From the outside, the building looks very impressive and from researching on Instagram, the pictures and the business looks amazing. However;...when we walked through the door, we were greeted at the restaurant with an old fashion restaurant layout printed on A3 paper, with each table been allocated in pencil. We were then lead to our table (that we had booked) right in the far back corner of the restaurant (table 52) where the nearest table was sat 10-12 tables away from us. It has completely no atmosphere, and was something like a scene out of Ramsay’s kitchen nightmares. Where the only 2 other tables average age was 65-70. We are a young couple of 32M/28F and we felt very uncomfortable. And It didn’t get better there. There was a ramekin on the table with a mustard sachet and some brown sugar sachets. The menu is old fashioned, with lots of stews, casseroles, and a beef stroganoff. Also melon as a starter. However the specials menu sounded amazing, which with both ordered the scallops. It’s almost if they have 2 chefs, 1 fighting for his old ways, and a newer younger chef that they let control the specials menu. The scallops were really good. The service on the other hand, was far too quick and abrupt. We ordered a drink when we sat down, and then was asked to order our food straight away. When we finished our starters, my other half went to the loo, and by the time she was back, the starters had been cleared and the main courses delivered, leaving absolutely no time to digest, relax or chat in-between. It was as if they wanted you out as soon as possible. No wonder the restaurant had only 3 tables at 6pm. I had fish and chips for mains, that was pretty average at best, and my other half had the lamb, which was quite over cooked and stringy. The deserts tasted as though they were frozen and just been re heated and not homemade. Overall we were very disappointed with the overall service feeling rushed and uncomfortable, the restaurant had no atmosphere at all. With the food begin average, we would not recommend to anyone.More

We ordered a takeaway lunch and had high hopes from the menu posted on line. My husbands burger was average but the chips were a disgrace, overcooked scraps that looked like yesterdays leftovers, packed in a paper bag so were cold. My lamb was stringy,...served with chunks of potato and carrot with minimal scraps of cabbage. This was certainly not value for moneyMore

A fabulous location, great views and superb food. Coeliac and dog friendly we defiantly had to give it a go. Good prices, a warm welcome and the food was genuinely fantastic. I went off piste and tried something I would not normally try, shredded duck...salad. It was amazing. The gluten free Celtic pride beef burger was a total hit for my youngest.More

We sat outside, with our young toddler. I felt happy with their safety measures, especially the cutlery. We really enjoyed our main course of duck & Celtic pride lasagne . The sticky toffee pudding was delicious & we were certainly full after. We would definitely...recommend. Looking forward to returning again.More

Four of us went there for dinner, on a weeknight. We waited what seemed like quite a long time for our meals once we'd made choices. In general, the food was nice, but not exceptional, but one or two details let it down. One of...the party chose the cheeseboard dessert, which was, frankly, very poor. We have wonderful cheeses available to us and it isn't difficult to put together a board with good crackers, perhaps a few grapes and above all interesting cheese. We felt the desserts were unimaginitive in general. But the crowning moments were the speed with which our plates were whisked away - I had only just put my last forkful in my mouth when my plate zipped away from in front of me and the same thing happened with one person's dessert. Let us draw breath before clearing, please! I'm sorry to say we probably won't go there again as we can do better elsewhere in Carmarthenshire.More

Greeted by staff on arrival who struggled to find our booking but did eventually so all good. Shown to our table, which was between two larger tables and no way was it 2 metres away from either. I requested another table as it was too...close to other diners, and we were offered table 75. Much better. You need to rethink the position of that other table in the conservatory, I’m certain its too close to the others for social distancing. Ordered the rustic breads and fishcake for starters both delicious, celtic pride burgers and cheesy garlic bread for mains, again delicious. Service was good- staff very friendly and helpful. We only regret not keeping enough room for a pudding! Paid with a gift voucher that we’d received for afternoon tea- was great that they allowed us to trade it in for money off a meal instead. All in all a lovely visit. The one way system was effective and there was plenty of sanitiser around the place. Diolch yn fawr 👍More
