We booked this in advance but are unfamiliar with area, here for Easter break. Waitress was super friendly and very accommodating. Don’t come unless you want a roast on a Sunday as that’s what’s on offer! Lamb wasn’t great, portion sizes were not huge either....More

I'll start with the positives. Having read good reviews we thought we'd give this place a try on a Sunday. Booked a table easily enough and the grounds of the pub looked lovely as we drove in. Great views and I'd imagine in the summer...More

The Plough is a quintessential English country pub with stunning views from our pond side garden over the Brede Valley with the sea as a backdrop. Situated on the Kent and East Sussex border and less than two miles from the medieval town of Rye, we enjoy a fantastic larder of local produce, from the freshest of fish landed in Rye and Hastings every day, to the wonderful delights from the Romney Marsh such as lamb and beef as well as the best of seasonal vegetables. With all this on our doorstep, we offer a good choice of local beers, ciders, wines and freshly prepared food, from our tapas, to our original choice of freshly prepared dishes and our homemade ice creams.
