We have heard a lot of good reports about The Plough so decided to give it a try. As soon as we sat down we were asked if we would like a drink which was nice not to have to go to the bar. Then we ordered our meals, I asked for a jacket potato instead of chips, no problem... More

Went for dinner with a few friends and had a great meal. Good choice and quality, with some lovely ales. We'd managed to pick their weekly quiz evening so we decided to join and had a great time! Lovely local pub, would recommend.

A really friendly pub with a great landlord. They have a great selection of guest ales and the bar staff are always knowledgeable about the different ales. I travel approx. 40 miles each way from my home in Leicester to visit this pub on an almost weekly basis which says it all really!

Had a great family evening meal here. The staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. One of our grandchildren has a milk allergy and they took that completely in their stride. Wonderful atmosphere, very relaxing time. Won't hesitate to go back next time.
