I've eaten here a few times in recent years. As someone else has pointed out, at times this pub can get extremely busy. I wouldn't fancy my chances of a good experience on either a Saturday or Sunday afternoon during the summer months as this restaurant is completely surrounded by different garden centres.
The food here has always been good and the staff are always friendly.
There is a huge car park so parking shouldn't ever be a problem.
There is a playground on the grounds which makes a huge difference to my kids when we are deciding where to eat.
Personally I find the prices very similar to any other pub menu in the area.
I just had lunch here with my wife. This is a beautiful old pub that has good atmosphere. i particularly enjoyed sitting in their conservatory which looks as if it was built in the Victorian era. The plates are beautifully presented and the service is good too. The only problem is the lack of flavour in the food. It is slightly on the bland side. On the other hand, maybe I'm asking too much of fish 'n chips!
Located in the famous Crews Hill garden centre district, is the Plough pub which is a good base for a day's plant-buying. This is were you need to take note, as this area is buzzing with the green finger brigade, and as this is the only pub within walking distance of the garden centres, then expect it to be busy, due to this the service can vary to be prompt to sometime this Millennium, so its not suitable for anyone expecting a quick hunger fix. Its popularity is due to them being a pub and not charging garden centre cafe prices. Their food can be enjoyed in the large conservatory and or outside as they have an attractive patio and a large beer garden. The quality of the food is what you would expect from a McMullen establishment and they do have some good guest ales from time to time. If you were out shopping for your garden, then you would find this a good place to escape from the horticultural overdose.
