A group of old friends enjoyed lunch here on a miserable afternoon & received a warm welcome with delicious food & laid-back atmosphere. The cod fillet was excellent, substantial & tasty. Many menu items tempted me so I will be back, in fact we all might be!

Stopped for lunch. Freshly cooked on the premises. I asked for duck breast to be really pink, and unusually for England it was.

Starters were good (tasty soup but nuked in the microwave to heat) but then I had the leek cannelloni which sounded lovely. However once it arrived it was either badly made (wouldn't get this past any Italian) or reheated several times to render it inedible. It was basically a slice of 'pasta cake'. The tomato sauce was non existent as... More

Visited with two friends, really attractive pub, easy to park. Staff were very friendly and offered great service. Food was lovely and all 3 of us enjoyed our meals. I had the burger which was more than just a simple burger! My friend had the special and was also very impressed. Price was good value.

Have just returned from a family Christmas Eve dinner at The Plough at Effingham, and I can only rate the experience as Poor for three reasons. Firstly, when booking we were never advised that there was a fixed menu of fish and chips or scampi and chips, followed by mince pies and coffee. Only after chasing The Plough myself for... More

We were looking forward to a nice family Xmas Eve Dinner. Lovely pub with nice interior. No background music playing which might have helped the atmosphere as quiet. We went for the fish and chips rather than scampi and would say was average - not cod or haddock. We were not offered a choice of deserts with coffee or tea... More

7 of us enjoyed a thoroughly good lunch here mid week, the food was delicious and service was good. We felt looked after and the landlord was open and friendly - a lovely experience all round, thank you!

Good choice on menu and reasonable prices - £12 - £20. Interesting variety of food and not the same old pub fare - rather hard to choose really. We had Roast Beef and Roast Guinea fowl. Good portions served - all very tasty, except for the gravy - didn't seemed to be made of the meat juices and was very... More

Had a delicious Sunday lunch here with the family. Roast beef was particularly good. My only criticism is that they didn't have a few extra Yorkshire puddings for those in the family that are partial to a yorkshire or two. Service was good. Staff are friendly. They have a nice outdoor area at the rear where dogs are allowed too.

I will be totally honest the food was fabulous. However couple of things. There was a t-bone veal steak on the menu and I wanted to know if it was rose veal, the waiter didn't know so I asked him to ask the chef - who also didn't know. I think in this day and age a chef should know... More
