    First time been in four months - very disappointed. Prices do not reflect on the quality and portion size. Very average pub food.

    Ordered the lasagna for 16 pounds - very small portion which came with six scrappy chips, rock hard flat bread, and a tablespoon of coleslaw. I have always complimented the food at the Plough but would never return.

    Ordered the seal pie lunch time menu at eight pounds for my mum and it was barely a kids portion.

    What a shame that this pub's food quality has decreased and the prices increased. Came away very disappointed and a rating of barely one star.

  • David Smith

    Took my friends who are visiting from New Zealand for tea. The food was scrumptious. The steak and ale pie was out of this world. Staff were lovely even though they were rushed off their feet.

  • Denise Kirkham

    Just returned from a lovely carvery at the Plough with family - 7 adults and 4 children.

    Great friendly service from Sophie; so helpful and accommodating to the needs of the little ones. Binny, what a friendly guy who served us the fabulous meats, which were cooked to perfection. Compliments to the chef. These two staff members are a credit to you.

    Second visit and the food and service was amazing. You have a great team who were fantastic from start to finish again.

    See you soon. Can not wait to return. Highly recommend.

  • Tracey Ollerenshaw

    Amazing service, I visited with my grandparents and the staff helped to carry their plates from the carvery back to the table. The food was great value and tasted great.

  • Catherine Maltby

    We came to your pub on the 8th October while we were on a visit to my sister in Wharncliffe Side.

    We had a superb meal, which was served to us by Natalie & Tom. The pub was very busy and they seemed to be the only front of house staff on duty. I would like to congratulate them on their excellent service, not just to us, but to all the clients. They had time for everyone and never seemed to be too busy to spare a word or two.

    Congratulations on your excellent staff. Look after them. We look forward to coming to The Plough again when we are next in town.

    Many thanks,
    Catherine & Tony Maltby

    We rang the pub up at short notice for all our family members to have a meal. We gave them about 20 minutes before we all got there. We had at least 30 people including children and they let us all eat in the barn function room at no extra cost.

    Food was excellent, service was excellent room, was laid out in such short notice. Staff friendly, atmosphere great.

    All the children played in the garden after the meal - they loved the chickens running around. All family members enjoyed it and the food. We all had a nice day out, a get together for brother in-law's birthday.

    Would recommend and will use again.

  • Steve Mirfin

    Enjoyed a great carvery on Sunday, (celebrating my sister's birthday). It's our second visit since The Plough changed hands and was refurbished.

    On both occasions, the food & drink were excellent, but my only complaint is the incessant music playing all the time. It was also too loud and we had to shout to hold a normal conversation. A member of staff was visibly shaken when I asked him to turn down the volume. I suspect that the music, (current pop), is actually for the benefit of the mainly youthful staff, and not to please the customers.

    Great food, great beer, great staff, great service, but the music was very annoying.

    Well done Ben and Jo!

    What a brilliant re-vamp. The Plough was so run down and drab, it was so desperate for a make-over. A bit of life in Bradfield... just what it needed. You've done it again!

    My husband, myself, my son and his partner went for Sunday lunch. We have eaten in some very high class restaurants, but Sunday's lunch would have taken some beating.

    The food was amazing - good home cooked food. There was beef, pork with crackling, and ham (cooked to perfection) a good choice of veg and potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, lovely gravy, mint and apple sauce, and the food was hot.
    The desserts were to die for.

    The staff were excellent, there was a lovely friendly warm atmosphere. I would recommend you book in advance:- it was really busy but you're not by any means rushed. Bit further to get there but so lovely... well worth it. We will certainly tell all our friends and most definitely go again.

    Thank you so much.

  • Kathy Goodbourn

    Been going to this pub for years before the revamp and loved the good old home-cooked food, and the staff were brilliant.

    What a disappointment after the revamp. No mashed potatoes or pork crackling with the Sunday lunch, barely warm, even the man who served it didn't have a smile for you. Miss all the lovely grub, the atmosphere and the original staff. Will not be going back again.

  • Ann Naylor

    Really disappointed with the revamp, lost all its character. My food was only just warm and not brilliant. The service was really slow and my son ordered ice cream but after over 20 minutes of waiting we had to cancel, as we had to go. Been going to this pub for years but don't think I will be going back now.

  • Abigail Petch

    We rate this pub 10/10 and more, our family love this pub!

    We had our wedding venue in the function room on 12.09.2011 after we had our service at town hall. The room hire was free of charge, decorations were lovely, table cloths and flowers were all perfect.

    Food was amazing. We had starters, main and desert. Very good price for our 30 guests.

    We played our own music. Staff used my iPod. I choose my own playlist of 60s, 70s and 80's music for our guests and other users of the pub.

    The children played in the garden in the play area and they all loved it.

    Amazing views of Bradfield made lovely wedding pictures, which family and friends took for us.

    Staff were brilliant, service was excellent and drinks were brilliant. Had a toast for the speech, teas coffees etc... Was highlight of my wedding. Loved it. Will never forget my day, perfect.

    Our wedding budget was low but made our family complete. Our children loved this venue, it's now special in our hearts, we love Bradfield.

    Thank you to all the staff who gave us a perfect wedding venue, will call back again and will recommend to everyone.

    Best pub in Sheffield, sorry we cannot get as much as we would like.

    Well done Mandy and Chris.

    Our regards,
    Liz & John

  • Janey Catlin

    Took a couple with us for Sunday lunch. We had booked a table, got our drinks at the bar, and asked which was our table - we were not told that we had to order our meals at the bar. After half an hour we asked if we could place our order - told to go to the bar.

    Only cutlery for 2 on the table, when the meal was brought had to ask for more cutlery.

    My husband had ordered lamb, underneath the lamb was a slice of pork. His religion permits him to eat anything, but imagine if he was Jewish/Muslim. My beef was awful as though they had scraped everything to make up a portion.

    We were ignored by the waitress, and the owner, no one acknowledges you. My husband has run restaurants in London for 30 years and if he had treated customers like this he would have gone out of business. Avoid the Plough on a Sunday lunchtime.

  • Deborah

    The Plough Inn is set in idyllic countryside, worthy of a stop-off for a local pint from micro Bradfield Breweries. That quote "we are only here for the beer" was never so true for this pub.

    The hosts are not welcoming, never acknowledge you (we are locals to the area) and unless you engage with them they never even notice you. Tables are never cleared promptly from previous eating diners, even though they have ample young staff serving meals and helping in the kitchen.

    The pub paraphernalia you would think would be full of farming memorabilia but it is a mish-mash of lifeguard shrines not in keeping with the local environment.

    Food is okay - not brilliant - there is a better carvery up the hill at the Old Horns - which is heaving on a Sunday afternoon.

    In summary: beer is great; get your act together and be more engaging with your clientele, clear tables promptly and serve a more quality Sunday roast.

  • Marilyn Shipley

    Had a lovely meal here last Sunday, 6th February, in honour of a friend's birthday.

    The atmosphere in the function room was lovely. We all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, lovely food, lovely staff and a big thank you to everyone!

    P.S. They do have a function room here and please ignore any reviews prior to 2008, as the management has changed.

  • Trevor & Vicki

    Had a fantastic evening here on Saturday, March 29th. The food was excellent - we had followed the owners from the Nag's Head where we had a similarly excellent evening a few months before.

    Could not have been friendlier - a real pub, not a chain full of people who don't care, but a genuine family affair with the atmosphere you dream of!

    Food was excellent - exceptional value (10 of us with desserts came to £70), terrific location, bus stop just opposite so no need to worry about driving.

    Thanks guys for a great time!

    A popular pub with good parking facilities and a great location. The home-cooked meals are excellent if you avoid the chips. It would be excellent if they changed their supplier and deep fat fryer.

  • Lesley Chappelle

    The Plough has been a favourite of mine for its location and open countryside for many years. Not only is it located on a good bus route, but yet pleasantly placed in the quaint village of Low Bradfield with the duck pond a stones throw away. This is another plus for the children who already have a good playing area with climbing amenities in the beer garden. For the customers who require a place to unwind and relax, the pub offers a relaxing atmosphere with a large open fire, which crackles away on a cool early spring evening and also a large selection of ales, including Bradfield's own special beers.

    Since the new landlord and landlady have taken on the Plough, it has seen a new lease of life and they have gifted us with their pleasant company and fine culinary talents.

    The atmosphere of the pub is full of warmth and pleasant exchange of interesting conversation, and today, being the 25th April 2007, was their first day for serving food since they took over the pub a couple of months ago. I phoned to reserve a table and it was a good job I did as well, because the place was buzzing with people eagerly waiting to taste the wares of the well-known homemade cooking of the landlady and her mother.

    I had lasagne, while my finance had homemade cottage pie and my son had Yorkshire pudding and sausages - all three of us ate every morsel without one little bit left over - even on my son's plate. The food was delicious and well presented. It was served piping hot as my family found out when they were pinching my chips. All I can say was we, as many more we observed, were highly satisfied with the service and the quality of food we received today.

    I wish the landlord and landlady every success and can see this pub being THE ONE to visit for many years to come.
