After an exhilarating day spent exploring the picturesque outdoors, there’s nothing quite like a hearty meal to satiate one’s hunger and rejuvenate the senses. Nestled in the quaint village of Low Bradfield, the Plough Inn offers just that – a delectable feast for your palate, without breaking the bank.
Perfectly positioned for weary walkers and cyclists alike, the Plough Inn is an inviting oasis to rest those tired legs and indulge in some well-deserved relaxation. My visit today was prompted by an impromptu decision, following a lengthy walk through the stunning countryside. Consequently, I hadn’t made a reservation in advance.
Upon arrival, the warmth of the staff’s reception was instantly noticeable, as they promptly checked for available tables to accommodate us. The Plough Inn exudes the charm and character you’d expect from a traditional country pub, complete with a rustic interior that exudes warmth and comfort. During chillier months, an open fire crackles away, creating a cosy atmosphere, while the sunnier seasons beckon guests to make use of the ample outdoor seating. For the little ones, a delightful play area is available to keep them entertained and engaged.
Once seated, I was faced with the formidable task of selecting a dish from the extensive menu, laden with tempting options. After much deliberation, I finally opted for the classic steak and ale pie, accompanied by chips and mushy peas, and garnished with a side of onion rings.
It soon became apparent that my eyes were far more ambitious than my stomach could accommodate. If you’re planning a visit, I’d highly recommend enlisting the assistance of a fellow diner to share your chosen side dish, as the portions are generous enough to satisfy even the most ravenous of appetites.
The steak and ale pie itself was a culinary masterpiece: succulent chunks of meat enveloped in a rich, flavoursome gravy, crowned with a flaky, golden pastry top cooked to absolute perfection. The chips were a scrumptious delight in their own right, but when submerged in the delectable gravy from the pie, they transcended to an entirely new echelon of taste. Without hesitation, I’d rank this as one of the most memorable pie and chips experiences I’ve had in recent times.
As for the onion rings, they were a treat for the senses – plump rings of onion encased in a crispy, golden brown batter that emitted a satisfying crunch with each bite. In summary, the Plough Inn offers not only a splendid reprieve for those exploring the great outdoors, but also a truly memorable gastronomic experience that will undoubtedly leave you eager for a return visit.
I’d certainly give The Plough Inn our recommendation.
