Having been here 3 or4 times in the last year or so, it never disappoints on any aspect. Gorgeous pub and outdoor areas are stunning. Food is amazing with good portion sizes. Above all, the staff here are what makes it. It’s always so busy...but they’re just so “on it”. My absolute favourite pub !More

We visited the Old Plough for Sunday roast and were not disappointed - the beef roast was cooked to perfections! Amazing food and atmosphere.

Usual lovely welcome and service…a favourite for 7 years…ah well, a bit disappointing foodwise this time. Burger was very average : beef overcooked, gritty, dry, tasted like cardboard. Fries weren’t really poor, potatoes very low quality. Chicken schnitzel was way too garlicky, garlic with chicken…anyway....A bad evening…many good ones to come.More

6 of us celebrated a friend’s birthday. Like so many places it was obvious that they were very short staffed. But our young waitress pressed on and was very professional indeed. Food was very good/ restaurant was packed and because we all understand the pressures...faced by restaurants today it was a very good evening. Would returnMore

Went on a week night but was still quite busy which was led for a good atmosphere. I had a burger which was good but could have done with more chips, I still felt quite hungry afterwards. Otherwise nothing else to fault

I have been going to the Old Plough since it opened about 11 years ago and I must go there at least once or twice per month and in that whole time I don't think I've ever had a bad meal or poor service. Seriously...this is an exceptional place to eat, how they manage to get it right pretty much every time beats me. Great food, lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff. Superb and cannot rate it highly enough.More

Went here for dinner as family of 4. Prebooked so no problem. Car park was full but OK parking across the road. Food and waitress service were excellent. No rushing but no lengthy waits between courses. Liver and bacon main course was exceptional.

Spacious and safely distanced table on pretty outside patio. Sarah, our waitress,was super friendly and attentive. Pacing of service was excellent and the food utterly delicious (everything we had!). A perfect place for a relaxing lunch and we recommend it strongly.

Thank you for being there for Sunday roast takeaway. And so good to be back in the dining room. Food is good. Always on point. No surprise. Prices on point. (A new Italian place in Cobham should learn…). Lovely professional service. Keep it up

Sorely disappointed with our visit on Friday evening. Admittedly we only wanted a drink and I appreciate other people would be staring to eat but we didn’t plan to stay long. We got a table and ordered quickly then proceeded to wait 15 mins for...our two drinks. In the end we had to cancel and leave as we had to be elsewhere. There was a large group of young men who were very loud and others were avoiding sitting in the vicinity. But clearly they were spending a lot of more money than quiet couples! Shame as it’s a lovely location.More

It’s not really the kind of place you’d go to watch the game as it’s more of a restaurant. I’d suggest The Running Mare nearby as a more suitable venue.

From memory yes. Their gardens, where you can eat too, are big. Plenty of space for the kids to run around
