Visited with friends on a midweek lunchtime. Good sized car park, lovely rural village. Place looks on the small size but when you investigate the inside it can seat 70!
Lovely bar area with seating, further separate areas all tastefully decorated with memorabilia.
Good range of beers, drinks etc. Comprehensive menu and specials board. We chose the lamb specials dish.
Prompt, efficient service from Kathleen, food excellent, tasty, well thought out.
Give the Plough a try you will not be disappointed.

Last minute decision to celebrate my husband's birthday by having lunch out. Where to go? We were very lucky to choose The Old Plough Inn at Egmanton. Delightful surroundings, attentive hostess and the food. Did I mention the food! We had beautifully tasting food for our main courses, melt in the mouth lamb rump and fillet steak. Too full to have a dessert but we promised to be back to sample the sticky toffee pudding. Thank you from us both.

Visited the restaurant at lunchtime on the Saturday before mother’s day for a meal with my Mum. We did pre-book, and our table was ready when we arrived. The menu choice was very good, and we went for the seafood selection, soup and bread and oils for starters. All were very good, especially the seafood. For mains we had the steak and ale pie, the salmon and fish and chips. The steak and ale pie was one of the best I have had- a thick pastry top over a dish packed full with steak and gravy, served with chips and peas. The salmon fillet was a good size and enjoyed by my wife. Mum had the fish and chips, and even though she only ordered the standard size fish (there is also a choice of whale size), it was enormous and thoroughly enjoyed! The chips were made fresh from real potatoes as opposed to deep fried oven chips, which was a pleasant surprise too. After starters and main courses, none of us had room for dessert!
Throughout, service was very good - prompt but not pushy, and polite and friendly.
As a result of everything, we all really enjoyed our meal. We travelled up from Bristol for the day, so were pleased to have such a good meal. Mum lives in the area and has been here several times previously, hence our choice of restaurant, and it delivered to a high standard
