Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well.
I went for Sunday Lunch with my friend at The Plough in Pyecombe today, so I thought I’d do a little review for you all. Just going to take a quick second to ask you all to please follow my new Brighton food instagram page @Brighton_Eats if you have a spare second!
Anyway, on with the post.
It’s literally about a 10 minute drive from the centre of Brighton, so it’s really not far to go at all.
There was either a Turkey or Beef Roast Dinner available for the Sunday lunches and we both went for beef, as I’m not really a fan of turkey, I find it to be quite dry and I fancied beef anyway.
They cost £10.95 each which I think is a pretty good price, as most roasts in Brighton and elsewhere are upwards of £12/£13 usually, and you get quite a lot in this one.
The first thing I loved was the gravy; the amount of it and the thickness and flavour. I don’t think I’ve ever gone for a roast before where they actually give you an adequate amount of gravy, until going to The Plough today.
The beef was flavoursome and tender, and the accompanying vegetables were nice, especially the broccoli and carrots. The parsnips were pretty hard, so I didn’t eat those as they were really tough to cut and I don’t like veg that’s not soft and tender enough.
What I believe was parnsip crisps/curls on top were good, and the Yorkshire pudding was fluffy and crispy. It wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, and I actually love going out for a Sunday roast because you usually get a giant one, but this was just kind of slightly bigger than average.
I wasn’t the greatest fan of the potatoes as they were quite tough to cut; I love potatoes to be really crispy but soft on the inside, but it was really difficult to cut through these. The actual taste of them was nice, especially with the lovely gravy.
We both opted for Banoffee Pie for dessert, at £5.50 each which I think is again, a pretty good price.
This was one of the best Banoffee Pie’s I’ve ever had; the soft, fluffiest cream on top, bananas that were firm but still soft on the inside, the most amazing base complete with toffee and chocolate, and whipped cream on the side. It was honestly delicious, I’m literally salivating thinking about it now.
All in all, I recommend The Plough for a Sunday Roast; yes, it wasn’t the best roast I’ve ever had, but it had some brilliant points, and I’m yet to try an absolutely perfect Roast (except my mums!). It’s a really lovely place to be especially when it’s sunny, as there’s a terrace and pretty much floor to ceiling windows so you can look out. The atmosphere is nice, it’s not too loud and crazy, just a nice place to relax on a Sunday. I think it’s a good price, and the dessert was amazing.
Let me know if you like these Sunday Roast reviews and if you want me to start posting more!
All my love BGP xx
