user reviews of the Plough Inn, Wistanstow

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The snug bar isn't very snug or characterful and the modern extension would suit a garden centre better. So little to commend it as a building. As might be expected, my pint of Shropshire Lad was as good a pint of Wood's ale as any I have ever had. Shropshire Lass and Hopping Mad completed the line-up.

Attractive old pub, interesting display of old Royal Wedding beer bottles. Woods brewery just across the yard. Nice pint of Parish bitter for 2.40.
But-on a Saturday lunchtime-that was the only real ale on!!
How can you only have one beer on with a brewery full literally next door?
Some say the pub is not run by the family who run the brewery-if that is true it needs to change. The Plough should be the showcase for the beers-all seemed rather half -hearted to me.

A good all-round country pub, not far from the A49 north of Craven Arms, with the Woods brewery next door (and naturally Woods ales on offer in the pub). Dining area.

Gorgeous Farmhouse Pie not to be missed and not a bad pint of Wood's Hopping mad OK if you like Wood's beers. Nice food but no roast on a Sunday Lunch, a bit quiet.

Right next door to the Woods brewery which (I am told)owns the pub. A good selection of Woods ales served - at least 4. Food & service good.

Sunday lunchtime 23/7/06.
I had the roast beef, my partner had the steak.

My roast beef, broccoli & carrots were lovely, cooked to perfection. The potatoes were overcooked, roasted for so long that they were beyond crispy.. just rock hard. What were new potatoes had turned into roasters too. Great yorkshire pudding but the instant gravy made me chuckle. 7-50... Not overly impressed.

My partner had the Prime Shropshire Sirloin at 13-95.
Shallow fried! Served with bagged salad and a good huge manly portion of chips. Asked for a well done steak, it was pink in the middle. No onion rings, no mushrooms, no peas,..just the meat, a grabful of salad and the chips. He ate the chips & salad, but left half the steak. First time I've seen him do that in 12 years.

They could do with a fly net over the veranda door...diners were besieged by flies.

Bar staff were fabulous. Efficient & very willing and friendly.

Windows could of done with a clean.

1 pint of Guinness & a glass of dry white was the best bit of our lunch out.
