Had a great time, friendly and attentive staff, delicious food (we had parmigiana, chicken milanese, rocket and cherry tomato salad, arancini, tiramisu). Can't recommend highly enough!

Friendly service and fantastic food in an unusually beautiful local restaurant. Extremely romantic for both summer on the terrace and winters amongst the gold mosaic

Plough Way Cafe is always a lovely experience. Their staff are really friendly and care about good service, and the environment and atmosphere is exactly the right blend of buzzy but relaxed. A real local gem.

The environment is very nice, low and colourful lights, friendly and cosy. They actually have some noise panels on the ceiling that are very helpful to reduce the noise. I really like this place, highly recommended.

Have loved their arancini for 5 years, and they still don't disappoint. And those parmesan puffs? OH MY GOD they are good.

Unfortunately we had to wait for food for 50 minutes. When the food came it was 12 pasta pieces which did not have much taste. No value for money.

Sadly, the food remains the biggest problem of PWC. Vegan burgers tasted as if prepared by a amateur chef, tiramisu was perfect though. Very kind waiting staff but my knife was NOT clean and I had to ask them to change it. I don't think we'll come back which is disappointing because we live local.

I enjoyed our visit and the staff were very friendly, I had to make a change to my booking at short notice and they were very accommodating.
The reason I did not give 5 stars was because of the amount of time it took to get our mains. I think our table was overlooked because we were in the corner outside. After raising this concern with a couple of members of staff, our order was pushed through.

So lovely to have a genuine Italian experience. The chefs and waiting staff are all Italian and the quality shone through. We had delicious pasta and the chocolate gnocchi was out of this world for dessert! We were looked after really brilliantly. Highly recommend!

The food is great but I think the restaurant need some modernisation . The outside chairs and tables are not comfortable at all and this ruins the mood even if the location is great .
The prices are acceptable but the fact that apply the service charge on the initial cost and not on the discounted value that you actually play under eat out to help out scheme is unfair . I am not against the service charge but I have ended up paying 25% on top of my bill .

Lovely food, service generally good (does depend on which waiter you get!), beautiful surroundings, moderate value for money - prices are not outrageous but servings are sometimes a bit on the small side. If you particularly want a nice atmospheric location with lovely decor inside and out, this is perfect.

This is just the most perfect place to chill whilst steaming in the heat .. an oasis .. always the best food .. if i could have a subscription to make me return every week, every other day i would... off ‘the beaten track’ …worth every step..
A true delight, thank you..

The arancini was so soft and crunchy, the dip/sauce perfect
My chicken milanese was sizeable and perfect
My partner’s salmon pasta was to ‘die for’
The accompanying vegetables not our favourites BUT they were exceptional and could become favourites..
all the salads were fresh, dressed and very tasty..

The service is always so gentle, so easy, just right... we were served and left alone.. with the necessary gentle comment.. or water replaced..

My only regret was not to start again, ditch the scooter and have some long cold drinks..

It is not cheap but it is extremely reasonable and utterly value for money..

We will be returning

And then come back again… and again

Just the most perfect place…

Looking forward to coming back very soon...

Just saying from previous experience at this cafe, the menu was much better, with a good selection of main dishes.. Now, there are less items and the ones which left, have less ingredients.. the atmosphere still the same, but food definitely got a bit worse.

In the absence of a Mediterranean holiday this year The Plough Way Cafe got us feeling pretty darn close! Excellent!
