|Call me what you like Lindawedlock123, the purpose of this website is to give honest reviews of pubs. I went in The Plough for the first time in four years and enjoyed the experience, that is all I was trying to say. If you can't accept that, and that I am no way related to the current management then that is your problem.|

|arfajob? Or should I call you Mark Jones?!! Funnily enough, the wellebeing of a child in a Public House behind the Bar and in a Kitchen was at the forefront of my mind. I was a little too distracted to give my opinion of the tonic water that I drank, but I'm sure it was very nice. For that, well done the Plough for serving a terrific Tonic Water. There you go arfajob / Mark or whatever your name is. Happy now?!! |

|Oh dear, here we go again! Because I had the audacity to post an honest review actually praising the staff, I am now accused of making it up: "positive comments are made up in an attempt to lure people in on false pretences" I assure you that these were my honest impressions of the pub. Why do you assume that anyone who posts a review contrary to yours has made it up? It may be that I was just lucky, but I cannot post a negative comment just because it's popular. I too am a resident of Smallfield, and have been for many years, |
I notice that apart from a quick remark about the decor, you have failed to give any review whatsoever of the pub? Quality of the beer, food etc? I assume that you were so disgusted that you walked out without trying any of the goods on sale?
That said, an explanation of the post from Stuart t both as a customer and manager of The Plough would be appreciated? What about the "disgusting" baby? How about it Marc?

|Firstly: I'd like to comment on stuart_t's posts for this pub. It seems that he posted on 19th Oct as 'Mark Jones - new operator of the Plough & Furrow' and on the 3rd of October as a customer, funnily enough giving a rave review of the place!! It begs the question how many of the other positive reviews for this Pub are from Mr Jones on this site as well as other sites???|
This said, my Husband and I visited the Pub recently. Being Smallfield residents, we chose to try out our new local. When we first walked in, we were pleasantly surprised with the refit and comfortable feel of the place. However, we were disgusted (& I don't use this word lightly) when we saw a gentleman carrying a baby behind the bar and into what I assume to be the kitchen area as this is where food was being brought out from. Surely there are health and safety issues there?? I've seen and heard a lot of negative views about the pub and can only assume these are genuine and the positive comments are made up in an attempt to lure people in on false pretences that this pub simply can't deliver.

|I can only speak as I find. I visited The Plough and Furrow on Friday lunchtime with an old friend of mine for a pub lunch. |
Although there were only two hand pumps on the bar, the Hobgoblin and Doom Bar were in excellent condition, and at £3.70, I didn't think that this was too expensive, as it is on a par with almost every other pub in the area.
We decided to eat, as the pub was rapidly filling up with diners, and both of us opted for the 8oz (might have been 10oz, I honestly can't remember) steak, which arrived quickly, beautifully cooked to perfection, for £12.75.
I was really surprised to see some of the negative comments posted on here, as I had really good, attentive service, with pleasant staff to deal with, perhaps I was lucky not to have "the red haired waitress"? The décor is a vast improvement over the old style, being light and clean and I for one was glad to see the removal of the TV and gaming machine.
There is a children's menu on the rear page of the main menu, and there is a poster advertising a weekly quiz night.
I will definitely be going again, such an improvement over the old management, which just goes to prove that you can't please everyone!
