Well, after a few visits over the last 9 years I'm pleased to say that I'm downgrading the pub from a 4 to a 2. Shocking, Rarely has a pub so well situated been so poor for so long. Had the mis-pleasure of siting in the beer garden with some racist scum just last Saturday. What a dump.

This used to be my local and from time to time i go back only to be reminded as to why i stopped going there. It seems rather odd to me that these hard working business men find customers, (the very life blood of their business) an inconvenience, we the customers obviously ruin the smooth running of the place. On my last visit i stood with a friend at the bar and not a soul was seen for ages the other side. In the end i rang the pub from my mobile and you guessed it, no one answered. To walk further to another pub is a minor inconvenience but at least I get served. It won't be long before this pub becomes a Macarthy Stone granny stacker!

I can only concur with the Mighty Cidermaster. the Plough now can only hold a half-dead Fire-fly compared to beacon of light of 5-10 years ago, and a relative black hole compared to the Halcyon days of 20 years ago. How can a pub that, until Pete (sob) left was great and not full of 'undesirables' have dropped so far. The few times I have been in recently there appears to be some major discrepancy with how when the pub shuts the bar and the time. why would I want to buy 4 pints at 10 and have until 12 to drink them just so they can shut the bar? Try crystallising some ideas of how to make a pub that sells real-ale actually get some people in to drink it instead of peddling poor lager.

You hear of so many pubs going to the wall, not sure which one, but some wall, why can't the plough actually attract more people for where it is situated. Admittedly, I live 50 miles away now, in a 'rough' part of London, and the pubs here are much better!

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, bitter old men? 30 isn't all that old I dont think, is it? Nasty rumours and blatant lies? Everything I have written is the full truth as witnessed by my own eyes, and as for being jealous, I must really stop you there.

You're ability to utilise adaptive camoflage is admirable as I've never seen you or anyone else for that matter in the Plough and apparently enjoying the 'lively discos' or 'open shite' nights, other than the staff themselves. Oh, hang on, it all becomes clear. I'm all for increasing revenue, and breathing life back into what was once a lively pub (I'm only going back 5 years, not 25), but this is not the right setting for what the landlord is trying to achieve. When the cash cows of myself and assembled friends visit a pub you can guarentee a good ammount of cash per person over the bar, by shutting early and forcing us elsewhere it's not just our bodies that leave, it's our custom also. Thats not good business sense.

There's no denying that the landlord is a hard worker, when he strolls back in the pub after spending much of his drinking time down the Courthouse, only to promptly call lasts as he wants to get upstairs with his McChina Wok-Away and the pretty waitress, you know he's had a tough day. I feel sorry for poor mugs like me that are up at 6, do a full days work and just want the opportunity to drink until midnight in a nice atmosphere, not with a slavering mutt relieving itself up the side of the fruity whilst some toothless crone bangs your ankles with her hoover.

So, I dont go to the pub every day, but I do get the opportunity to visit many other pubs now, and I'm in them a damn sight more often than I'd be in the plough in the near future.

Oh, and there's an incredible invention called a spellchecker, you 'young folk' are supposed to know how to use them....

I read the last review and felt that something needed to be said to dismiss the nasty rumours and blatant lies that have been expressed here by bitter old men who have nothing better to do than criticise those who they are jealous of.

Since the pub gained a new manager a year ago there has ben nothing but improvement. From lively discos to the introduction of open mic nights, the new manager has done nothing but increase revenue and polularity for a once boring pub full of good for nothing busy bodies who have nothing better to do than moan.

I may be the only one that thinks someone of 'her majesties forces' should be applauded tather than mocked, but other than that I think someone who goes into a pub once a day maximum has absolutely no right to criticise anything. You may see the plough as somewhere wehere you can have a pint but to people who have a bit of ambition and a bit of common sense it is a business.

To run that pub means being up at 8am and going to bed no earlier than midnight EVERY DAY. If someone can not only do that but bring in new custom and bring a sparkle to the place which it has never had before, that should recieve nothing but comliments on a site like this.

To be quite frank, if you don't like it, DRINK SOMEWHERE ELSE! Your custom and constant moaning will not be missed.

Farewell :-)
