All Four-Legged Friends Welcome!
Our four-legged friends are a very big deal at The Plough Inn, where our breathtaking countryside is heaven on earth for any creature with fur, four legs and a wet nose.
Man’s best friend
We love dogs at The Plough Inn.
Canine visitors to our beautiful rural pub in Surrey are always welcome and will enjoy complimentary doggy treats which you’ll find on the bar when you arrive. Out in the garden, we also have special water stations to make sure your pooch stays hydrated after walkies.
Canine code of conduct.
The majority of staff and customers here at The Plough Inn are very fond of dogs. However, not all people are dog lovers, some even have a fear or allergies. So due to the increased number of four-legged customers, we’ve introduced this code of conduct so that everyone can relax and feel comfortable.
In an attempt to reach a happy medium, we would appreciate if these guidelines were followed:
- Dog should be accompanied by their owners at all times, both in and outside the pub.
- When inside please keep your dog on a lead and off the furniture
- Please do not allow your dog to jump up at anyone
- If your dog is barking, please attempt to quiet them
- You may be asked to take your dog outside due to incessant barking
- Aggressive dogs will not be tolerated
Our hope is that by implementing these guidelines we can create a warm welcoming atmosphere for all our customers, both four-legged and two!
Ride to the pub
We have a dedicated area to tie up your horse outside and water and hay on hand so that your mount can fuel up, The Plough Inn provides a picture-perfect pit-stop for thirsty riders. And with the outdoor seating adjacent to the tethering area, riders can bask in the sun enjoying lunch — while keeping one eye on their horse.
Four Counties walks
A 5.5 mile (8.5km) tranquil walk through rural Surrey passing close to the neighbouring counties of Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex.
The route passes a number of farms, past fields of sheep, cattle and horses and through woodland. There are extensive views to the chalk ridge of the North Downs, and the Weald to the south. Part of the route follows the Vanguard Way, a long distance footpath linking the London suburbs to the south coast.

Popped I’m in while passing Popped I’m in while passing by at lunchtime, glad we did. Service was excellent and welcoming.
Lots of choice on the menu, I went for a burger and it was big and tasty. Desert was yummy brownie and ice cream. We were not rushed and able to enjoy our lunch.
We wanted to return to try the Thai menu but unfortunately for us they were fully booked. We will try and plan ahead and return in the near future. -
Lovely lunch We had a really lovely Sunday afternoon in the pub garden. Really lovely food, couldn’t fault it and excellent service. We were quite demanding with two young children and they went above and beyond for us. Fab afternoon. -
Went here for a lunch time Went here for a lunch time meal during lock down. Both meals were very nice and filling, staff friendly. During covid we sat outside on a lovely sunny day, there are tables outside both at the front and rear. There were covered tales in the rear. We did not book but this was an ad hoc visit to the area. The toilets were outside and these were clean. It operates full table service and staff cheerful say just wave, we did not need to as very attentive as they walked past. Plus its part of government eat out to help out campaign this august, pleasantly surprised at the bill . We had traditional english food, but Thai food is served too we do not know when but will visit again for the Thai food -
Great!! Great service!
Staff were fantastic coping exceptionally well with the current situation!
Food was excellent British & Thai menu slightly reduced but all found something to eat
Will return very soon -
Went for a quick Sunday lunch Went for a quick Sunday lunch with a friend , I own a pub myself so I always like to sample various pubs for lunch .
The pub is gorgeous , really old English quintessential English with beams , open fire etc,
Walked in and 3 people who worked there didn’t smile or acknowledge us standing at the bar which was when they opened , the lady with dark hair could have been the landlady was great , took our drinks orders and asked us where we would like to sit .
Food was delicious , we had a roast beef , chicken and leek pie and a sponge pudding and custard .
Can’t fault it , it was absolutely delicious !!!
I would definitely recommend going here, girls could smile and say hello to any customer who walks in , and the other thing is it’s a bit cold the other side of the restaurant to the fire .. maybe that side could be lit ?
But I’d definitely return ! -
Lovely surprise We stopped at the Plough for lunch and we're pleasantly surprised with the large selection of Thai food on offer. The food was outstanding the service just right and not rushed. Parking is good and the plough itself with its open fires and low ceilings delightful. Cannot wait to try more of the dishes... -
Sunday Lunch Superb roast beef as per the norm..
Nom nom nom
Highly recommended place to eat either traditional English food or exquisite Thai of an evening. -

Super I was lucky enough to visit this place two days running. Once for lunch and then for dinner. Lunch was a Thai menu with a big choice and was really delicious. Service excellent, staff attentive with fast service and good hot food. We chose Wednesday for dinner as it's their special steak night. Choice of 4 different steaks with chips, salad and a choice of 2 sides. We chose the sharing Tomahawk steak, medium rare and it was perfectly cooked. Chips were great, the sides all tasty and plenty of everything. This pub is about a mile from my home in a very small village but is certainly proving very popular. Highly recommended. -
Best pub grub in the area Frequently use the Plough for drinking but have recently had 2 excellent Sunday meals there. Good atmosphere, pace of service and quality of food. -
Fantastic pub with warm atmosphere 🍷 I am a frequent visitor to the Plough with both friends and my family and always enjoy my time there. My husband, son and I often go for Sunday lunch and we are always impressed by the quality of the food and the service. The staff often go out of their way to ensure my 2 year old son is happy which always helps us have a relaxing lunch too! On one occasion our waitress ensured my son’s lunch came quickly in order to keep him amused as she could see he was hungry so that my husband and I could enjoy a glass of wine with some peace!
I often visit with friends in the evening too and am always greeted with a smile and good chat over the bar with the great staff which keeps me continuing to arrange to meet my friends there.
Thai food is exceptional and the best around in the area to eat in or takeaway which is not good for my waistline!
Everyone should visit this pub, you won’t be disappointed. -

Thaitastic What a brilliant combination - old fashioned pub (not a juke box or fruit machine in sight) with a great atmosphere, a pint (or three) of delicious Harvey's, the best Thai cuisine locally and a warm reception from the friendly staff -
Thai food! Wonderful family friendly pub.
Fantastic authentic Thai food and clean surroundings.
Dog friendly and child friendly
Always welcoming every time we go -
A Great Lunchtime Menu & Friendly Service Table booked for a walk group lunchtime at the end of a morning event.
A warm welcome when we arrived (about 20 minutes earlier than expected ... must have been walking too swiftly!) but tables ready for us.
Food ordered at the Bar together with our drinks. A lovely Specials menu, too.
The service was very friendly and I gather that all the group enjoyed their lunches ... very satisfied. -
Fantastic Country Pub Stunning old beamed country pub, serving great beer and fantastic food - English and Thai. Never had a bad meal here. Always a great busy busy atmosphere . -
Booked a table for nine. When Booked a table for nine. When we arrived, we seemed to wait a very long time to be recognised, and when we were it took a long time for the waitress to bring a small basket of crackers to the table to whet our appetite whilst ordering. This was despite the restaurant not being overly busy, and other diners were being served prior to our table. This wasn’t too much of an issue, but we then waited again for our orders to be taken, and then waited again for our starters. Having said that, the food, when it did eventually arrive, was of good quality, with ample portions and nicely presented. The experience for the whole evening was that they were disorganised, but the food was good. Overall a nice restaurant but a bit let down by the sporadic customer service. Hence, four stars rather than five. I would still recommend this venue... -
Lunch at a firm favourite With all the rain and cold we thought we'd head down to the Plough where we knew their open log fire would be alight to brighten the day.
They run two menus, thai or British and there is a specials board too. So plenty to choose from for food and a great selection of beer, wine and spirits. So today we chose from the british menu with a pint of Harvey's for me and pinot grigio for the boss. The food was lovely and staff attentive. A great break from routine. -
Great country pub We have been to this great country Pub quite a few times and we always get a great welcome. Great food and a good atmosphere -
Really friendly pub with the Really friendly pub with the best Thai for miles around. Couldn’t fault it if I tried and been going there for years. -
More than a real country pub! My husband is very fussy about his beer and says this pub offers the best pint of Harvey's he's ever tasted. He was tempted by the landlord to try a pint of "Mother in Law" apparently its half a normal Harvey's and half Harvey's Old Ale", he's now a convert! The food on offer is far better than any pub grub! During the day there is an array of mouthwatering plates that would not be out of place in a top London restaurant and during the evening there is superb authentic Thai food that is outstanding. Apparently Wednesday night is steak night, which we are yet to sample but I'm sure it wouldn't disappoint. The Sunday lunch is to die for but I would advise to book a table if you want to eat as its always busy. You can choose to eat in the restaurant area or bar area. Lots of the food and drink is sourced from local business'. Dogs are welcome in the bar area, so you don't have to leave your 4 legged friend at home.
We visited on Saturday lunchtime and as expected there were lots of people who had been there since early that morning as they televised the England/New Zealand rugby on the TV. Everyone was in great spirits without being rowdy. It was a great pleasure to see the local trail hunt and the hound pack turn up in the car park as they made a pit stop. All the riders were very friendly and chatty and we were encouraged to get among-st the hounds and give them a good old fuss! It was a baptism of fire for our Lakeland puppy's fellow dog socialisation, but the hounds were very gentle with him.
The only thing that spoilt our visit was the appearance of some hunt saboteurs who were I have to say, very aggressive towards everyone! The Rugby crowd combined with the riders and general "punters" managed to evict them from the car park by singing a very loud rendition of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot"
If you're looking to experience what a real British country pub has to offer then this is the place to go. From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted with a very warm welcome form not only the staff but other customers. It has a real vibrant atmosphere without being intrusive and every-time we visit we have always been welcomed with open arms and a smile. -
A great local This wonderful pub is on my doorstep so it is easy to take it for granted. I thought I would take a minute to say what a lovely, cosy place it is for a drink. It serves delicious Thai food as well as traditional pub fayre. If you like a traditional country pub with roaring log fires, candles and fairy lights where dogs are just as welcome as their owners then give it a try. -

Best Thai Restaurant! There surely are magical creatures at work in the kitchen. The Thai food is truly witchcraft! Perfection! Always look forward to coming back. We've not eaten from the 'English' menu but can imagine the same level of yumminess. -

Very Nice Lunch We called in for lunch after a visit to Chartwell, it was quite crowded, good sign, welcoming staff.
I had a very good burger, slightly rare, beautifully seasoned. Just salad which was nice. My Mum had ham egg and chips that she enjoyed. -
Fabulous food The thai food was fantastic! Beautfiful green curry. The service was friendly and very good. Definitely worth a visit -
- David R
Sunday lunch. Absolutely superb traditional Sunday lunches. My rare beef was as delicious as I have ever eaten - and I am 83 years old so I have eaten quite a few. All members of our party raved about their different dishes. Cheerful and efficient service. Return planned. -
Sunday Lunch Loving the roast beef for Sunday lunch.
Served up with asparagus, carrots, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and lashings of yummy gravy.
The chef, Fern, has not produced a bad meal yet.
Always a must for a Sunday. -

Good lunch spot on a walk from Edenbridge to East Grinstead Good beer and food nicely served by friendly staff. The pub had a good feel and was comfortable. Replete, we struggled on the afternoon section!! -
Lunchtime drink Nice country pub with a lot of atmosphere, they do good food and have a Thai option good beers too and loads of seating outside large car park -
Lovely pub and very enjoyable Thai food The interior of the pub is lovely. Interesting decor, has atmosphere. Old and interesting interior. Easy to park. I love Thai food so seek it out. Friendly, young girl serving. Efficient service with no long waits. complmentary prawn crackers that she offered to refill.
Prawn dish - a sort of sizzling plate - were very tasty although I think they were a little overcooked. Really enjoyed the whole meal. Good selection.
Would I return? Yes and soon. -

We had arranged a cycle route with our four children via the Plough for lunch. I had eaten here before but not for a while so I had expected it to be good. However yesterday the Sunday lunch was amazingly good. The food was beautifully cooked and the presentation of the vegetables was an art. Usually for pub lunches I would expect a dish of vegetables, but the chef had taken great care in the cooking and presentation resulting in a selection of perfectly cooked bed on which the roast rested. It was delicious. The interior is immaculate with fairy lights , candles and fresh wild flowers on rustic stripped pine tables. The staff were friendly, very well turned out and the atmosphere was relaxed and very inviting. Lastly the sight and smell of an open wood fire was exactly what we needed after a long windy cycle. Definitely going back soon -

Visited this week with a walking group, previously booked in with close idea on numbers lunching. Not our first visit and we will be back for sure!
Very friendly atmosphere with a good welcome.
I believe that everyone enjoyed their lunches, which more or less came out together. Full marks to the team. -
- Mark Kingsley-Monks
I'm probably a little biased as I only live down the road but you'd be hard pushed to find a better pub. With friendly staff, great food and welcoming locals (I would say that) it's a great place to meet up with your friends. Whenever I tell people where I live they always say "You're near the Plough, aren't you lucky! We love it there" Enough said. -
- Sally Whitehouse
After booking a table at The Crown, at Turners Hill, and being informed that this hadn't been noted down, the Plough managed to fit us in and thankfully they did. I had a lovely birthday lunch with lovely food and exceptional service. Highly recommended visiting The Plough -

The Plough Inn
The Plough Inn is a superb village pub located in the corner of four counties - Surrey, West Sussex, East Sussex and Kent. Serving both traditional pub food and mouth watering Thai.
