Went here with a friend for lunch. The place was packed out and is clearly doing a roaring lunchtime trade. Ordering food is via the bar.
The menu was extensive and as we were sitting near the bar the food coming out of the kitchens looked delicious.
I ordered a chicken and chargrilled pepper pizza with chorizo and olives. This came on a nice wooden platter with a cutter. It was hot, authentic looking and very tasty. It was also very substantial, but I would expect this given the £11.95 price.
Thankfully, I had a 2-4-1 voucher which brought the cost of the meal to a very reasonable level.
The staff were friendly and attentive, having a laugh with each other and on good terms with the clientele.
On the whole,I wouldn’t have expected any more from a lunch in a quaint pub in Harborne. If you do decide to go, it is advisable to prebook as nearly all tables were reserved or occupied when I visited.
I would highly recommend this place and despite the somewhat elevated prices you are sure to get a quality and satisfying meal, with good service and a lively atmosphere.

What a revelation ,as someone who remembers this as a scruffy little pub at the bottom of the High St.
I knew it had been refurbed ,but only returned recently after being invited by friends.The pub is completely unrecognisable,very smart,has a great beer garden,a buzzing atmosphere,very good food and beer.
The staff are young ,friendly and efficient ,has regular themed nights,good 2 for 1 deals on food in the week.
I have returned many times since ,with family and friends,even take by mom in there for coffee and brunch or afternoon tea.
A word of caution it can be rammed full on a Saturday night ,but i have found the atmosphere great,when i say rammed i mean queues outside to get in .
I have visited the Plough with friends on a few occasions now. It is definitely becoming one of my favourite haunts in south Birmingham.
There’s a fantastic vibe about the place that hits you as soon as you walk in. The clientele is solidly middle class with a mix of well spoken professionals, affluent families and well heeled students from Birmingham University. Great for a snob like me.
As with the surrounding area (this is Harborne after all, darling), the blonde quota is very high, with lots of yummy mummies frequenting the place and treating Charles and Cordelia to posh pizza.
The service is excellent with very attentive bar staff who will readily let you sample the guest beers so you can try before you buy.
In fact, I haven’t anything negative to say about the Plough – highly recommended.
I cannot rave about this place enough! First of all it has the nicest most attentive staff I have ever encountered. On the last time I visited, although there were no tables, all the staff made sure to save us one straight away and quickly prepared us drinks while we were waiting. Later on, when I went to ask for the burger special of the day, they offered to make any combination we wanted even when it wasn't on the menu.
The food was gorgeous. I had a beef and ale pie an my boyfriend had a beef and chorizo burger. Both were clearly homemade and came in generous portions (none of us manage to finish). There was also a great choice of drinks (ales, ciders and beer) with several foreign beers on bottle.
The decor is also great, with its mismatched chairs, wooden floors and beautiful beer garden (make sure to come here in the Summer).
A gem in Birmingham.
The Plough is an impressively well-presented, family-orientated pub with a modestly-sized main bar area and a beer garden that is probably larger than the interior. This place has been heaving almost every time I've been, which makes navigating your way to the bar a bit tricky at times.
The food they do is really nice, although like everything else there it's a little on the expensive side.
The whole place seems to have something of a 'great hunt' theme to it, and I'm not sure whether this is a nod to the pre-refurb decor or something they decided on afterward. I find it detracts from the overall appeal, but it seems to have no adverse effect on the popularity of the place, so more power to them.
Good food and good atmosphere - the super thin pizzas are the highlight. Also it's £15 for two pizzas and a bottle of wine, any day of the week, total bargain. Free wifi too I think

This ia a really great pub in a nice part of town. It does not matter if you are drinking or fancy a bite to eat - the plough suits both. It is best sampled on a summers eveing when the back garden area is always lively.
The food is good pub grub, excellent pizzas and there are always some good offers on. Plenty of home made items unlike many other public houses serving grub!
They do movie nights on a sunday with free popcorn! And have a quiz night.
More suited to clientel under 40yrs i would say. Well worth a visit!
Recently refurbished similarly to its adjacent neighbour 'The Green Man', but to completely different affect, as they've actually managed to improve the pub.
Not now in the cold, but i think the other review here justly advertises the beer garden, which during summer months is a great plus, with its expanisve decking and umbrella shaded tables. On Friday and Saturday nights, expect the Plough to be quite busy, attracting a young-professional clientele.
The beer is slightly more expensive than its local rivals, about £2.60 a pint, but the atmosphere and decor make it worth that extra 30p. The bar staff are friendly and welcoming in my experience, and you're rarely waiting to be served either. All in all, no complaints from me, as it receives a stirdy 8/10
Refurbed over a year ago, The Plough is a lively and friendly place to drink and have a bite. In the summer time the beer garden is a great addition and is regularly busy with a good atmosphere, pretty ladies are not uncommon. The food is actually very good and not too over priced but its better to eat earlier in the day than later. All in all a decent pub/bar in a decent part of Birmingham.
