It is always a treat to visit somewhere that exceeds expectations, and this is exactly what happened at The Plough Inn. It is a charming traditional pub that was built in 1260 and has retained many of its original features, including the old oak beams and inglenook fireplace.

Once seated in the restaurant area we began with two dishes that were bursting with flavour and colour – the succulent Cornish scallops complemented by crackling pancetta, crème fraîche and asparagus, and tangy goat’s cheese coated in poppy seeds and accompanied by confit tomatoes. Her appetite whet, my wife followed with flavoursome duck breast, parsnip purée, game chips and an intriguing crème de cassis sauce. Meanwhile, I was blown away by lemon sole with salmon mousse, served alongside Hasselback potatoes, asparagus and pea purée. After our first two courses, we had nothing but praise for the chef’s attention to detail and bold texture combinations.

Dessert proved equally impressive, comprising divine walnut tart served with Armagnac-soaked prunes, and a light yet satisfying croissant bread and butter pudding. Both were homemade and a triumph.

The attentive and friendly service made our evening all the more enjoyable. We will definitely be returning to The Plough Inn to enjoy another exemplary dining experience soon.
