Overseen by twin brothers Alex and Oliver Burnside, The Plough & Sail offers a modern British menu with eclectic world influences. This sensitively restored, country farmhouse-style hideaway features a spacious restaurant and cosy bar.

A tempting range of menus at The Plough & Sail feature dishes from local suppliers, while cellar is stocked full with world wines and ales from local breweries. Highlights include oysters with shallot vinegar, seasonal fish pie served with a local mixed leaf salad, and duck breast with fondant potato, braised red cabbage, plum tartlet & jus.

The tempting dessert menu features classic creme brulee with a ginger flapjack & poached apricots. In summer, the courtyard at the back is the perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday.

The Plough & Sail in Suffolk is a 10-minute drive from Wickham Market Rail Station.

    Fab food, fab service, it's just a shame that our table was in front of the answerphone as it kept ringing through our meal. Overall very good.

    Great choice and wonderful presentation. Fabulous steak. Could not fault it. A chef who knows how to do his job brilliantly! All staff very personable.

    I like the Plough and Sail very much and my food was delicious but my friend's Duck Confit was disappointing, overcooked until a bit dry and served with a rich sauce jus that is not required with a confit. We finished with coffee. Two espressos and a decaffeinated espresso but the two ordinary ones were just "small americanos" the third one was good.

    Friendly service and a good menu, overall a high standard normally that slipped a little this time.
