Good food, especially the pasta. The atmosphere is really nice but we had to wait 1 hour for food which for dining outdoors at night feels like ages. The service is a bit slow and awkward.

The food was very delicious and tasty and decently priced. I left feeling quite happy although, while fed, could have had a bit more in terms of portion size for it to be perfect. But I would return again.

Service was slow and not as friendly as we have experienced inside on previous visits. It was a bit expensive, and the House Wine priced at £20 a bottle was out of stock, and the next available was priced at £28, which was a bit of a difference. The food was good.

Sat outside due to current Covid regulations so unable to experience inside the restaurant. Food delicious - calamari, two types of pasta and deep fried gnocchi with chocolate sauce and I e cream- each well prepared and thoroughly enjoyable. One waitress delightful- the other surly.

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.

Really love the al fresco feel of this restaurant. My only comment is that it is a little on the expensive side, especially when it comes to the additional extras that can be added to the brunch mains.

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.
