Top place for the summer this,
the gardens really colourful too,
English country style and elegance wrapped in one! -
We enjoyed a fantastic afternoon and evening at the Plough. Highly recommended -
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 -
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. -
Great little find, lovely food & great customer service. The open fire is a definite plus! -
We went there with Ian and Debbie, it's a great place to go -
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 -
Lovely pub full of character A lovely old traditional pub, as it was so hot we sat outside, lunch was very good and the service friendly and ver6 good. -
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!! -
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. -
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. -
Great atmosphere with traditional decor to the building. Friendly, helpful staff and a fantastic Sunday lunch. Loved it -
Staff were nice and a good environment and cheerful -
Fantastic times and plenty of good memories from The Plough over the years, all made possible by the friendly welcoming atmosphere and staff team who are 100% part of enriching the atmosphere. Best pub for food around and the area. -
Fabulous food and fantastic service -
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 -
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. -
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. -
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... -
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 -
Brilliant value for money and excellent Thai Curry without doubt the best we have ever had -
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. -
Thanks AGAIN for another lovely meal - brill food, good service. My 5 year old loves the noodles and satay chicken! -
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 ! -
If you have any further enquires or would like to make a booking
