    Returned again for our regular catch up with friends. Food is always good and service friendly. Very accommodating for large groups with kids/babies etc.

    This was a slightly above average pub. I had the most superb fish of the day dish, probably one of the best I've had in a pub. On the other hand 2 of my friends had gnocchi and both were disappointed. My partner's burger was good he said but both he and some of the other members of the party were disappointed with the lack of choice. Waiting staff were very helpful and efficient. Would give another go but not over the weekend as the venue is very noisy when there are lots of large groups.

    I always enjoy my visits to The Plough. The food is consistently good and the staff are friendly. The dining room is lovely and there’s always a great vibe, with the only negative being the noise - it is difficult to have a conversation. Probably not the best place if you’re hard of hearing, but if you’re after delicious, unfussy food in an upmarket pub setting, you can’t go wrong with The Plough. We had a lovely Sunday lunch there and everyone from the 75 year olds to the 9 year olds enjoyed their meals.

    The restaurant food quality was great and staffing very attentive, the atmosphere was good although the room was a little noisy at times. The décor is very welcoming.

    The Amaretto Sour was well made. I’m a devotee of maraschino cherries so that’s an additional element to consider! The staff are delightful and attentive on a busy night! The steak (fillet and porterhouse) are worthy of 10/10. Cooked to perfection. The side dishes are inventive and completed the meal. Wine list is comprehensive with a varietal red from Spain chosen. Service was speedy and friendly. It’s family friendly for all!

    Been a 35 degree outside, it was hotter inside and uncomfortable, the eating area only had fans going and when asked if air con was on, staff suggested because of weather changed hence warm inside. We stayed because we had already ordered, hoping the place would be cool by the time our food arrived but no change. When asked for ice to share, we were given a glass of ice! what a pity because their pizza is delicious, would never recommend or go back!!

About the restaurant

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.
