While returning home from a break what a wonderful surprise. Found through Good Food Guide, always worth another persons view. Lovely quiet location, follow the PUB signs that lead you straight there, but well worth the trip. We needed somewhere to relax and eat. Food wonderful, better than we had at our "posh" break. Lovely atmosphere, service excellent. Close to... More

We booked the pub skittle alley for a 30th birthday surprise party with about 20 adults and children aged from 3 to 80. We ordered lasagne, with salad and garlic bread, for everyone from the hot buffet menu. The lasagne came in one large tray for 10 people, and a smaller one for 5 people, more than enough for our...

We have been to the Silver Plough for lunch and dinner and can thoroughly recommend it for both. Food was amazing on both occasions. The Gluten Free options were the best I have seen in a pub or restaurant ever, and it tasted yummy!

The snug bar was snug in terms of atmosphere but spacious in terms of the room between tables. It was a Sunday, so the roast had to be selected. And what a great plateful it was. I selected the pork with plenty of crispy crackling, adding the obligatory Yorkshire pub. My friend went for the roast beef. We just about... More

Worth the wait - we weren't in a hurry - and nice to have something other than a roast (nothing against these but sometimes we want a change). All dishes were declared delicious and plates cleared. Portions not too large so enabled the majority of the party to partake of equally delicious desserts. Also nice to find good quality coffee.... More

Nice lunch, but the experience was ruined by the restaurant policy to allow dogs in. I don't think the EHO would sign off on a restaurant with 4 or more dogs just lying on the floor. I suggest the owners re think their policy

Saw the sign for the pub on the main road and decided to give it a try. Every table in the pub was reserved so I thought that's a good sign. Although they didn't have any tables available, they managed to set us as long as we were finished by 2 - 2 hours was long enough for a lunch.... More

Our village arrange a Christmas meal every year and this year we changed from our usual venue to the Silver Plough. I was really looking forward to it as the pub has such a good reputation. On the plus side, as the booking had been made well in advance, a nice big table was ready and waiting for us, and... More

I'm sorry but charging £1.45 for a soda water is not cricket let alone £20 for out of the freezer food!! Avoid there are two pubs nearby that are reasonable and dog friendly in Hurdcott and Farley with lovely gardens and friendly staff

Having visited several times it was a pleasure to enjoy a very good lunch with good friends. We were caught out by the opening time of 12.00 noon but the friendly service and food more than compensated for our wait. Our first visit under the present management but we wish them every success.

Thank Cliff D
