I paid $44 for a medium 300gram eye fillet which was under size ( would not have been 200gram), over cooked and dry. I also asked for mushroom and pepper sauce and only got one sauce which had little taste (I don't know what it was). The bar staff need to be taught how to pour a beer - always excess head then tipped out and topped up (several times for each beer)- destroying the beer. The Plough Inn used to be a great pub - bit no more.

This was great, as we had small children, we were able to ensure that everyone was catered for. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff were polite and helpful. The food was great. We ordered a mix of fish, steak, burgers and kids meals. All came out with no issues. The fish was fresh and the steak was cooked as ordered. We often go to The Plough for family events and catchups as it's close to the playground for the kids and the food never disappoints.

There response was amazing. They sincerely apologised, gave us a round of drinks, had the food cooked and on the table for 2 families with 6 kids within 20 minutes, and gave us vouchers that covered the whole cost of the food. Mistakes happen but the customer service that followed was top class. Great location and good food to add. Highly recommend.

Others at table were happy with their meals so it's a hit and miss affair

Oysters good too but have a suggestion to simplify the presentation. Just sell natural oysters and let people have a choice of what sauce they want: eg the Korean or Italian etc. Give the sauce in a little container rather than swamping the lovely oysters with it. Better for the oyster lovers to be able to control how much sauce per oyster. Great atmosphere at the pub and very efficient staff. Happy Easter to all.

We had to order our food to get drinks. So we purchased prawns at $28 for 8 and were then told after this that it didn't count as a meal so still couldn't purchase drinks. We then had to buy more meals which we did and were told it would be 1 1/2 hours which was fine as busy. Order our drinks unfortunately now no wine glasses!! We then went downstairs and a short time later tried to order drinks and were told me needed a receipt of food purchase, we were not given one!! We then had to continue to go back upstairs and get drinks. All in all a ball ache. But staff very pleasant. M
