The Plough restaurant is lovely with Interesting dishes, nicely presented, and an extensive list of wine by the glass. The service was friendly and professional. The room had a good ambience, good energy but easy to talk despite being busy. Perfect for a lunchtime meeting!

The restaurant is very nice and the waiting staff attentive and lovely. Both my friend and I had fish and chips and although they were delicious the portions were far to big, - we got 2 huge fillets, as did everyone else who had the fish. We could only eat one each so an awful lot of food waste, which I really hate, I also find that the very sight of an enormous plate of food is really off putting. No wonder we are getting bigger as a nation! Apart from that a nice evening.

The food was very nice, atmosphere good and service very good. Everything tasted freshly prepared. The prices are quite high but we would rather pay a bit more and get a really nice meal.

Mediocre. It is clear the management is trying to cut corners (or cut costs) by putting a limited menu on Sundays. We went for supper on a Sunday evening, and the cut down menu offered us only Sunday lunch style options. It was like going to a carvery, after everybody else had taken their granny home. The starters and sides had been retained from the 'real' menu, which was incongrous. I'm hardly going to want start with quail breast then go on to roast beef with yorkshire pudding and a rocket and parmesan salad. And it seems as well as a cut down menu, there was a cut down kitchen. The pasta starter had been microwaved, and was sitting in tepid liquid. The rocket and parmesan salad was a small all heap of rocket leaves with a spoonful of dry grated parmesan on the very top. If you don't want to open on a Sunday evening, then don't.
