Plough Hotel, Footscray VIC

The Plough Hotel is a hotel located in Footscray, Victoria. They have a bar and great food and drink options. They also have a great dine-in restaurant - you may be able to download their menu on their website.
They have an average rating of 4.3 out of 1208 reviews, with the latest ratings ranging from 2 to 5.
We were looking for a casual venue which offered a variety of meals other than just your standard pub bistro meals for our son's 21st lunch time gathering. We started with several entree's which were shared and ordered foccacias as well for starters. We then ordered our mains which were plentiful. My beef cheeks meal was super delicious. All meals came out promptly as well - considering they had other functions on. All staff were super friendly and attentive to our groups orders and requests. What swayed me to book there was that they were very obliging when I first enquired about guests with allergies. This was our first visit at The Plough and are glad to say we have now found our go to venue when next dining out. I have worked in hospitality and I am quite particular of service and presentation. The Plough certainly made my son's 21st gathering a delightful experience.

we really enjoyed our dinner here, we shared the buffalo wings which were incredible, our waitress recommended the lamb shank which was to die for (would have liked a little more gravy & salsa verde) The customer service here was a 10/10 they were kind enough to take us through the function room and explain the function packages. We will definitely be back!

I arrived with out a booking looking for a room for that night. Reception was extremely friendly and helpful.
The room was clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately it was a little noisy at times but is to be expected with its excellent location to the city.

Brilliant food, venue and service today for my function in the Barkly Room. The food here never disappoints but today it was especially amazing, and we received many complimentary comments from our guests. We also received very proactive and helpful assistance to organise the event and the entire process was seamless. Highly recommend for a function, cannot fault the place.

The team did SUCH a good job making sure everyone was well looked after last night during the FIFA Semi finals. I was so impressed by their attentiveness, calm staff and smiley faces throughout the whole BUSY night.
Decor/interior wise, this Hotel pub is gorgeous! Tidy, stylish, great open space and also lots of little dining areas if you've got a small group or visiting solo. Great job guys :)

We had our sons first birthday at the Plough Hotel and honestly it was the best experience! The planning with the bistro manager, Kat, was so easy, she was flexible as our numbers kept changing and went out of her way to ensure everything was to our liking. She was also fantastic on the day! The food was great, the atmosphere was great and they even let us decorate!! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to host a function or even just have a few drinks! Would give it 10 stars if I could!! Thanks Kat and team!!!???-???-

First time trying the Plough... I can safely say that they have taken their reviews of "poor service" onboard as we had terrific customer service from the moment we arrived. Service can make or break you no matter how good the food is ! They are very child friendly and straight away brought a kids menu, pencils, paper and high chair to our table. Food was magnificent, very generous servings, great kids menu and nothing was a bother, we were made to feel very relaxed which is great, especially with kids as it can be stressful at times ! Only odd thing was when I ordered my son a fruit juice from the kids menu they went to charge me a different price from the menu and when I asked the wait person said "the price went up" ??? I found that an odd comment ! But it got sorted and I was charged the correct price. Slip ups happen ! Keep up the great customer service and food and we will keep coming back ! PS, the serving side of the very delicious gravy does need to be a little bigger as it only just covered my delicious schnitzel and I had nothing for the chips !

Have been here 3 times in the past month and all 3 times we enjoyed everything about this place. The staff are so bubbly and friendly. Food is divine. Used to come here every week before covid and after covid the quality of the food dropped a lot. Didnt come here for a good 2 years and decided to try it out again and honestly im so glad i did! Portion sizes are so big you get what you pay for!

Lovely food and staff. Family friendly. Easy parking. Very fair prices. What's not to like?
Didn't stay in a room overnight, just came for dinner with friends.

The schnitzel was top notch. The crumb batter was not too thick, and the chicken was decently moist. Chips were crispy and well seasoned with salt. Salad was well dressed no wilted yuck parts at all. And the gravy was def home made I wish you got more of it for all the chips they give you.

My wife and I were super satisfied with our experience at the Plough Hotel. Tina, Pete and Kat we're extremely accommodating and helpful with our requests for our Wedding celebration. That Barkly room was a great space to share a meal with our loved ones. The food was an absolute highlight with many guests complimenting the quality and portions of the dishes included with the 2 course meal. We loved the pork belly, rump and roast pumpkin in particular. The service was also really good with great customer service provided. We would recommend this venue for a casual meal but also for functions/events. Thanks to the team at the Plough Hotel for letting us celebrate our wedding.

Party of 15 for Mother's Day dinner. They accommodated our large group in the private dining room. Service was fantastic and food was delicious! Really enjoyable evening and highly recommend the Plough Hotel.

Are there new owners or something?! I used to rate the food very highly but the rump steak was bad. Chewy, had to eat around the fat/gristle, and not cheap. Wouldn't jump to a bad review except our neighbour had the same report from last week.

Food was good but needs more seasoning.Service was alright. It was just so incredibly noisy. With the flooring, the noise just travels through that place. Want a dinner for 2 without wanting to struggle to hear one another? Perhaps find an alternative

The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable, the staff were amazing especially Lynette & Paisley, who went above and beyond to make our stay fabulous. Location was close to train and bus, short trip to major shopping centre. Would highly recommend as all staff were very friendly.

Call themselves a Gastro Pub and the food definitely stacked up. The Flank steak was excellent. Others had the Ox Cheek, Fish Special and a pizza, all gave good reviews.

We went with some friends on Tuesday for the steak night, and even though we have heard very good things about this place it was just alright.. we order 4 steaks and the consistency just wasn't there. One of the steaks was really overcooked which they recooked upon request. The ambience is good and the service was very good as well, but the food could have been definitely better.

The Plough has been our go-to for many years, & it has been wonderful easing back in again post covid... we love the family vibe, very helpful staff, welcoming ambience, & broad menu. The Plough doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't, and that goes for Footscray too! The Plough is a long-beloved local tradition & landmark that features in my memories of Footscray through to early childhood.
Service us always so helpful. Our menu favourites include the pork and truffle oil pizza, & the ever-pleasing steamed ale pudding.
Week nights they offer special menus, and Sundays the classic roast.
I'll always be a Plough Girl :)

We had a work dinner for 12 people, every single person said their meal was delicious and plans to go back with family, partners or friends. I love introducing new punters to locals in my area and the team at The Plough did not let me down! The seafood linguine us delicious and yes, the wine is also very nice.

We had a family dinner celebrating my brothers birthday, and it was a really disappointing experience unfortunately. We waited an hour for our food to arrive, including what should have been very quick starters. Those who ordered the classic pub meals were satisfied, but I had the Portuguese fish stew which was small, very plain and very overpriced. Do not recommend. They did take an entree off the bill but it didn't make up for a bad experience. We won't be back.

I am an avid traveller and my rule for reviewing accommodations is that I should stay there at least twice, so that I can review their consistency.
I have stayed at the Plough Hotel more than twice and is my go to whenever I'm in West Footscray for work.
The check-in and out process is smooth. The rooms are always clean.
The noise level has also been minimal, which is surprising, being above a bar/restaurant and on a busy street.
The restaurant is great. The food is always delicious and it's always a perk to be able to take food up to your room, although you can't charge the food to your room.
The location is also really good and only a short walk to other restaurants in the area.
One negative is the parking. It's small and cramp. I would love to see it expand somehow.
Another negative would be the water pressure in the shower. Not as great as I'd like.
Overall, I do recommend staying here for a short stay.

Both my partner and I really enjoyed our meal. All courses were tasty and cooked perfectly. The best meal I have had in the West by a mile. Will be going back and highly recommend.

The food & service was fantastic. Two of our guests had the "steak night" steaks, delicious I'm told, while I had the beautiful gnocchi! I also enjoyed the Footscray gin cocktail. We will be back. This was a dinner for my birthday so thanks for making it memorable. Ngaire

Dined here for the first time and was a very pleasant experience.

Upmarket menu (and upmarket prices) but good selection of quality dishes.

Steaks were cooked well and offering a large selections of mustard was a nice touch. The seafood linguine was very well balanced and the ingredients tasted quality.

Wine list was solid and overall service was friendly and efficient.

Would recommend if you're up for a gastropub meal and don't mind paying a little more.

Absolutely smashing evening. So easy to deal with the staff in the lead up to our function in the Barkly Room. Elsa was great to communicate with and so responsive and kind. The staff on the night were lovely and did their best! My only critique would be that the sound system didn't play as loud as we'd hoped to start a dance floor. The sounds of the crowd drowned out the music.
So happy overall and had a special night.
Good on you, Plough team!
