The customer service is really poor . Abrupt way to talk to customers too arrogant Italian manners for being serving tasteless pasta in London, inflexibility rudeness from the manager to customers as I could see from my table. Not giving my custom to this place.

Had a great dinner at Plough Way Cafe. Recommend the pizza. Not all the tables are near a heat lamp, so unfortunately we were cold during our dinner. A suggestion could be to get portable heat lamps to put between the tables further away from the heat lamps on the wall. Otherwise, great service, good food - highly recommend giving Plough Way Cafe a try.

Food was good, enjoyed the varieties available. Would definitely come again for that. The weather was lovely and outdoor seating was great. But service left a bit to be desired. We didn’t get our main meal until we were there for 1 hour and a half, having placed our order in less than 10 minutes after arriving. It was alright though since our food was brought out soon after we had enquired about it the second time.

Food acceptable but lacked a little flavour . One dish was cold in the middle so hadn’t been heated through properly

There was obviously a shortage of staff which meant long wait times for each course and difficult to get servers’ attention. Food was mostly good, although one dish was a little overdone in areas. Better communication about the wait times for food would have been helpful but hopefully our experience was a one-off and just down to post-lockdown teething issues!

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.
