Things have changed since our last visit. The service is still good. The emphasis on wines within the state has dropped off completely and more non-Victorian wines are now listed. The food still has a selection to please a wide audience, but not quite as polished as before. Still nice food and ambience, great service, but not quite the same old reliable Plough. Seems to have lost the edge it once had.
Hi Vivien, thanks for your review. I am suprised to hear your comments regarding the new international additions to our wine list - they have been widely appreciated, and it was a path we went down as a lot of our guests were requesting Old World options. Also 9 of our 15 by-the-glass options are still Australian. Can I ask what you had to eat? I'm concerned that you didn't find it up to our usual standards; would love to hear what in particular you didn't enjoy. Feel free to email me: info@ploughhotel.com.au. Thanks, Elsa

The food was absolutely amazing! I had the slow cooked beef cheeks and they were soo rich and delicious. The staff were really helpful with wine suggestions and very attentive.
Hi Carly, thanks so much for your great review. We are super happy that you love the Plough as much as we do! See you next time. Cheers, Elsa.

Starters lovly, shared calamari vege platter & croquettes, but mains a bit boring, all meals were served with a ton of chips, can’t anyone think of something else to serve a good parma with?!? Otherwise good pub food but place very noisy
Hi there, thanks for your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your meals. While we agree with you that chips may not be the most inventive side for a Parma, it is traditional pub fare and 99% of our other customers would be in uproar if a Parma didn't come with chips! Hope to see you again soon, cheers Elsa.

Tap beer selection definitely aren't as good as they used to be!
Hi there, thanks for your review. Sorry to hear you're not enjoying our new selection of beers - we always have a couple of the old classics in a bottle if you're looking for something more familiar. Feel free to chat with the bartender next time you're in about the kinds of beers you'd like to see. It's always good to hear feedback directly from our guests! I notice you scored us quite low on service - was there an issue with your waiter? Feel free to email me at info@ploughhotel.com.au. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers, 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.
