Menu could be refreshed a but more often
Hi Matthew, thanks for your review. I'd be interested to hear a more detail on what you think could be refreshed, and how often you would like to see that happen. At the moment we change the menu every 2-3 months (generally with the seasons). But any feedback on these kinds of things is very valuable, so please feel free to email me: info@ploughhotel.com.au. Cheers, Elsa.

The food here is always good and I particularly like the selection of local produce. Great steak chef although I had one of the fabulous salads (a meal in itself). The service here is great too - these staff are the right amount of cheeky and know what they're doing. It can be loud so not good for people with hearing issues but a good atmosphere including for groups.
Hi Lucy, thanks so much for your review. We really impress on the staff the importance of having a personality and be engaging. Nobody wants to be served by a robot! Glad to hear they are hitting the right tones. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Elsa.

Return visit for annual xmas catch up with friends. Food always good. Enjoyed the garlic/cheese focaccia, lamb & burnt mango cream for dessert. Will be back again.

House smoked salmon was slightly too smoked but other than that delicious.

You can dress The Plough up however you like, but it is still a pub and therefore in my view should have pub prices. One drink, one main, one bowl of chips, one dessert $73 !!! I ordered the barramundi special and this tiny piece of barramundi came out with sloppy vegetables and potatoes. It was a $36 main. Desserts are $14, I found this place extremely pricey and not value for money. It is extremely loud and you cannot hear yourself think or have a conversation. My spritz was full of ice and lemonade and I could not taste any liquer or prosecco. I won't be going there in a hurry again.
Hi there, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are disappointed to hear of your negative experience at the Plough. We have taken your comments on board and they are being looked into by management. Hope you have a safe & happy Christmas. Thanks, Elsa.

About Plough Hotel

A Footscray icon Built in 1868, The Plough Hotel is a Footscray favourite for people of all walks of life. If you’re a family looking for a hearty meal head for the bistro. If you’re a couple looking for some downtime and a night away from the hustle and bustle then the restaurant section is for you. The menu is the same in both dining areas and focuses on pub favourites, share plates and pizzas. With fresh and bright exposed light bulbs, white tiles, bare wooden tables and black trims, this is a hotel that's urban and not too fancy. All in all, The Plough Hotel brings down to earth hospitality, beautiful spaces and quality regional produce to the West. And if you eat or drink too much, you can always sleep upstairs, there’s eleven rooms where you can get some shut-eye.
