    Definitely try it, food was vibrant and packed full of flavor. Excellent meal!! Turned up with my kids 9 and 4 yo's, got handed a Thai menu 'thought to myself hear we go, we'll be leaving now I guess' waitress asked straight away about the kids if they wanted chick nuggets an chips. I said oh yes plz. Absolutely faultless service from a very young staff nothing was too much trouble, so as our drinks arrived the kids meals came very shortly after, then on to our meals which was stunning, my partner not a great fan of Thai food but she really enjoyed it. Would most definitely return -

    Family lunch on my wife's birthday Excellent service from confident and friendly staff. The lunch was simply sensational. We were a group of 5 adults with a small child and the quality of each meal was very good indeed. We had a mixture of Thai and English dishes and a few beers. -

    An amazing place and folk This place and the staff are amazing. We came in on a rainy Friday afternoon and it was really busy due to a function booked. We were expecting to be told “ no room at this inn” but instead they pulled out all the stops to find us a table as soon as possible.
    In the meantime we had a drink by the bar. I can recommend the Harvey’s Best. Was obvious they know how to look after beer.
    We chose the Thai menu and it was very extensive.
    When the food arrived , it was spectacularly good and so reasonable in price.
    We were so full of fabulous food I could barely eat another bite. They very thoughtfully gave me a takeout box. Wonderful!
    I was so full I could only manage an Irish coffee (had to be done) and it was just perfect.
    Thank you lovely Plough people (only name I remember is Rosie the coffee maker)
    We felt so comfortable as soon as we walked in and I’m sure you will as well

    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.

    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 -

    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 !

    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. -

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. -

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.

    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 -

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. -
