user reviews of the Plough, Manston

Parked our caravan here for a few days, thinking we might drop in once or twice, but ended up dropping in two lunchtimes and every evening because we liked it so much. This pub struck us as the complete package: really good, knowledgable landlord and staff, running an efficient business without sacrificing the essential pub-ness of the place. Four ales including Church End straight from the barrel, two Palmers and 6X. The food is really good, nothing too fancy but certainly not boring and all served piping hot. The surroundings are traditional country pub, except the conservatory which is laid out restaurant-style but you can eat in the bar too. Live music from State of Undress on Friday night was a bonus. A crooner on Valentine's eve was not (that's imo -- others seemed to like him). There is a loyal crowd of locals who seem to turn out most evenings and there's clearly a lot of repeat business among diners, who know a good thing when they've found it. Glad we found it.

Dropped in for a couple of pints yesterday when checking out the small camper van / caravan site attached. Pleasant inside with some character - food being dominant. 4 ales on - tried the Palmers and also the Vicars Ruin guest which was out of the barrel. Both good.

Much improved management. Good standard of food and a good range of beers. Frequent live music. Enjoyed their beer festival in July.
