We had told them how good it was from past experiences and it lived up to our expectations again. The dishes we ordered were delivered in a timely manner and attentive and knowledgeable waitress...

My family have visited this Restaurant on several occasions and have found the service consistently outstanding..... in fact we can't think of a place where the staff are anywhere near as friendly and helpful. It doesn't matter if you are having a drink at the adjoining pub or sitting down to a three course meal, you are treated equally as... More

A friend and I went to the Plough for lunch on Sunday. It was such a hot day and they have a really nice outdoor area which provides sun and shaded areas. Stephanie looked after us for the time that we were there. She is great at her job, friendly and helpful. Just like a lot of your other staff... More

I asked for Med rare both times, The first time the steak came out over done and when they asked how the meal... More

A wonderful friendly Historic styled restaurant and bar with a warm inviting atmosphere. Owners and staff who love what they do will ensure dining out is easy and enjoyable. Very family friendly with a playground, huge garden and plenty of toys. Also very suitable for Grandma and Grandad with smaller meal options and plenty of space. Carpet to keep the noise down. A busy restaurant 7 days per week ensures all meals are made fresh daily there is plenty of selection. All day dining so the kitchen is open no matter how early or late you wish to eat. Come on down and check out the new old decor. Showing off the history of Rangiora and the surrounds.
