Came here for a family meal in August 2011. We liked the interior decor and would come back here for a drink but not sure we'd eat here again. One or two dishes we had were nice but others disappointing; service not particularly impressive.

Why oh why do we come back to this place when there is so many good places nearby to eat and drink. As always the food was very average and the service likewise. Spit chicken with lemon and garlic was a spit piece of chicken with a whole roasted garlic and half of a roasted lemon separate. Needless to say the chicken tasted neither of the lemon or garlic. My wife had the same with a "piri piri" sauce which turned out to be tomato puree witbh chilli seeds. At least the selection of beers and the setting is good, but god knows why so many people flock to this place...

Debatable (as others have pointed out) as to whether this should be listed on BITE, as its more of a restaurant with a bar at the rear than a pub. Visited last Friday lunchtime - as i approached the bar there were at least 2 irate groups waiting to complain to the stressed staff about excessive delays waiting for their food. Although the beer was pretty good (had one of the draught ciders) - it was totally understaffed and many unhappy punters. Shame though - great location

Visited this 'pub' on 2nd May. Plough now been turned into a pretentious would-be 'gastro pub'. The food is completely over-priced and does not live up to the expectation given by the elaborate menu. My 'gourmet' burger was greasy and was missing virtually all of the 'additions' promised on the menu. My son's smoked salmon pizza consisted of three thin shavings of courgette, a sprinkle of salad rocket and three of the tiniest pieces of smoked salmon I think I've ever seen - all served on a thin, dry base. The spit chicken with garlic and lemon mayo was simply a piece of chicken with a dollop of mayo, a roast bulb of garlic and a wedge of lemon. Pity the chef can't actually execute his own menu. Needless to say, I would never eat here again and would strongly recommend others not to do so. What a pity when this 'pub' is in such a pretty location.

This used to be a decent pub, and was one that we were looking forward to drinking in after visiting Eagle Heights. It used to be a popular, family friendly pub that did meals and had a good atmosphere. It has been refurbished and has gone upmarket so it is now a restaurant with a bar area.

It is clean and tidy with excellent, if somewhat formal service. Two well kept beers (Harveys and Doom Bar), and very tasty crisps. No child seats, but a booster which our two year found a little small.

The bar felt more like a hotel lounge than a pub, but was OK.

We miss the old Plough. This place isn't bad, but it's not what we were expecting or looking for.
