disagree with the above reviews
  9 / 10
regular diner here and was most surprised by poor reviews. If you order a meal and it is not to your taste you cannot expect not to pay for it, own up- you got the choice wrong and put it down to experience. Why complain about getting 3 coffees instead of 2 ordered? I am sure you will not have been charged for 3

Fresh fish is deliverd on a Friday and is very good, maybe a rush on fish and run out so frozen fish used. You cannot expect a small pub to keep a large stock of everything all the time, any food thrown out has to be paid for.

The coats were not taken on entering the pub? the drinks were not taken to the table? was the pub very busy when you were there? it is a small pub with few staff if there had been few customers I am sure the staff would have carried the drinks to the table, this does happen when time permits. The staff's priority is ensuring the ordered meals are put on the table piping hot, how would you feel if your food was cold because the waiter was hanging up another customers coat?

We find the pub good value for money, it is a small village pub not a 5 star hotel restaurant and the food, service and hospitality are always very good value for money, very professionally run, the menus and drinks are tailored to what customers want

Not a fair review
  10 / 10
Having dined here often myself i feel compelled to write after the previous review. The reason the menu has descriptions on it is to advise customers of make up of the dish. As you had ordered something to which, you, admidt you had misread the menu, why should you not pay for it? If the dish was not cooked as advertised, fair enough then you dont pay, a menu is not a sampling opportunity.

I am sure the staff at the Plough will be disappointed by this review as am i. I know i will keep going there.

Very Disappointing
  1 / 10
Headed out, looking forward to a nice family meal but was very disappointed. When my starter came it tasted awful but I was advised that it was an ingredient that I hadn't understood from the menu! I accepted I had made a bad choice and continued with the meal without eating my starter. Two of us ordered coffees but three were delivered to the table. When paying the bill I was surprised to see that I had been charged for the uneaten starter, when I queried this I was informed that had I asked about the starter I would have been informed about the offending ingredient! I paid the bill but have to say that I am very unsatisfied with the service and will not be returning to this venue.

absolutely great
  10 / 10
I, my wife and many friends have eaten many a meal at the Star Inn and have read with great horror the text " Disapointing ". we simply do not beleive this report, it is in my humble opinion a load of rubbish, perhaps the author had a bad hair do day. Star Inn , keep up the great work you supply a superb meal at a reasonable cost

disappointing
Having been to the Plough before and really enjoyed our meal, we though we would go back for hopefully a repeat, but sadly not. Firstly no one asked to take our jackets, secondly we were left to carry our own drinks to the table, thirdly at 7.30pm only 1 steak left disappointment no 3. The starters were up there but not quite, the two gentlemen had fish and they both knew it was frozen fish. The 1 steak was rather on the tough side and it was half eaten before the pepper corn sauce arrived, also heard another table asking about the sauce.
The presentation of the main meals left alot to be desired the steak or fish was placed on top of the chips. They need to rethink how they plate either the salad on a side plate or the chips it looked terrible, I wouldn't dream of serving food at home in this manner the people with me wouldn't let me complain they just said they wouldn't be back
So come on Plough get your act together
