It wasn’t until our stay that I realised The Plough served Sunday lunches. From that moment, it was moved swiftly to the top of my list of places to visit, as if our evening meal was anything to go by, their Sunday lunches would be nothing short of perfection.
So here it is.
It was a lunch of both dreams and beauty.
The Plough’s Sunday menu features not only your roast dinner favourites of Beef, Pork or Chicken but also a choice of a gammon, pie, fish or vegetable dinner.
I chose the Glaves of Brompton topside of beef. Glaves is a popular local butcher, along with Stepney Hill Farm where The Plough source their loin of pork and is somewhere we frequent to get our own meat from, so we knew the beef would be amazing. Which it was. Without a doubt being one of the best pieces of meat I’ve had in a while.
The Plough’s Sunday Lunch follows a similar and favourable presentation to that of The Grainary, with the meat, pudding, gravy, roasties and in this case some mash potato arriving on your plate. Then the option to ‘fill’ your plate with the small, yet adequate side dishes of seasonable vegetables. Which during our visit were broccoli and red cabbage.
Although my sweet tooth is one to be rivalled, when it comes to dessert after a Sunday lunch, I’m normally one to skip it, as I’m just too full! However on this day, I really I thought I really needed to push my belly boundaries and order. So of course, it was the Sticky Toffee Pudding. I truly believe this and apple crumble is the only dessert to really have after a Sunday Lunch. End of.
It really didn’t disappoint. I had eaten this dessert before when I visited with friends a few weeks previous and it was exactly how I remembered it. Perfect. The sponge pudding was perfectly spongey and the sauce is out of this world. The kind that is so good but quite sickly at the same time. (I’ll definitely be ordering again though!)
I thoroughly enjoyed this lunch. I’d love to have it every Sunday and would definitely make room for the sticky toffee pudding! I wonder if they do take out? The staff were all really friendly and attentive.
