Yesterday evening my wife and I , along with some other family friends visited the cow and plough for a couple of drinks and a chill out. Great choice of beers and spirits, along with excellent service and a dartboard, couldn’t ask for much more

The food was overpriced for what it was - the bubble and squeak was not cooked well and parts were hard, my partners meal was just ok, we have both had much better food here in the past.

Nice food served by friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. The pub has set prices for a 2 or 3 course meal and the children's portions are just small adult portions so no turkey twizlers and chips here.
