I have tried eating at the Plough several times at different times of day in both the pub side & the restaurant. I was disappointed every time at substandard, overpriced, badly cooked food & indifferent service. The waiting time was at least half an hour each time, even for sandwiches, which for £6 were awful, served on thin packet bread.
I was looking at the website for the pub, which said something about cocktails there. Hard to believe when they didn't even have worcester sauce for my "bloody mary." And I actually got a shrug from the barmaid who served me when I challenged this.
Really good atmosphere and drinks selection but the food is awful. Change the menu, possibly the chef too. Cheap and tasteless, sometimes cold with a ridiculous waiting time. Other than that its a great venue :)
The barmaid there is absolutely amazing! Petite stunner, with long dark hair, and the best smile in the world! If you're reading this, marry me!
Oh, and the bar is good too. Staff are very friendly and offer a great service. They were more than happy to have a chat with me and my mates. Food is good, and very well priced.
This pub is a great local, plenty of ambience and a good mix of people.
But .. the food was terrible!
Our steak was not cooked the way we asked and there were a few microscopic greasy fried veg tucked underneath it, leaving us still hungry afterwards. Not great value for £15. We both ordered sticky toffee pudding which was so rock hard that we could actually not get our spoons through it!! It also tasted a bit burnt.
Unfortunately we had to hand our puddings back, and thankfully were not charged for it.
Perhaps we just chose badly - it'll not put me off going back there for drinks because it is a lovely venue - they just do need to work on their cuisine!
I drink here quite a bit as lots of my mates live nearby.
Nice building, recently refurbished, with a garden and play area for kids. No tv screens - which I like.
Staff are nice, but don't have much time for a chat or they get told off by the management which is a shame as it kills the atmosphere a bit.
Late licence attracts drinkers from around the South Ealing and Northfields area. Closing time is variable, depending on whether the bar is taking enough money to stay open.
Both the quiz and the food suffer from being sent in weekly from Fullers head office, so they taste a bit generic and lowest common denominator.
Decent jazz trio play on the first thursday of each month.
A nice pub... quite modern (but not over-trendy like a bar) with a few sets of big couches and a non-smoking bit out the back in a conservatory area.
It attracts a mixed crowd of all ages, there's normally quite a young crowd there though. Friendly. Serve good reasonable value food and do a good pub quiz.
