The Plough has a surprisingly extensive menu. Reasonably priced, well cooked unfussy food is topped off with very good service from all the staff.

17 of us descended on the Plough for Sunday lunch and celebrate a special birthday. The food was exceptional and the service and support from the staff was fantastic. I fully recommend this place. The quality of the food and service is outstanding.

Ate at the Plough last night and despite no Fish and Chips (so popular ) was impressed with the service, food and overall experience. Deserts are pricey but good. Will be back, so go visit.

Food is of a high consistent standard. Friendly helpful staff. You need to book in advance as it gets busy very quickly. Puddings are way overpriced but good.
