The hotel was recommended by a friend and definitely exceeded my expectations. The room was bright, well furnished and looked out over a garden area at the rear. The en-suite bathroom was as large as the bedroom and contained a bath and a real shower, (not one of the tiny ones usually found in British hotels). I dined in the... More

Stayed one night only (sadly). Fantastic room with ensuite which could have easily been another double room . Ate in hotel and was very impressed. I am coeliac . Special menu to cater for gluten free available. Lovely breakfast. Don't be in a hurry but this is a hotel to chill in so was not a problem. Decor is beautiful... More

Chanced upon this place passing through and I guess we were very lucky. Service was excellent but the food was lovely to the point where I would say one of the nicest meals we have had lately. We had burger which was massive and top quality, pan fried chicken which was superb and a kids fish and chips which was... More

We called with friends on Saturday evening and had three courses each. The food was the best we've had for some time. They've made the restaurant larger and moved some of the uncomfortable wooden chairs and it really is a superb place to eat. Three if us had halibut for mains with samphire and it was excellent, my wife had... More

Stayed here with my husband. Very hospitable. Fantastic food. Good attention to detail such as real milk for your morning tea. The bathrooms are fantastic. Only downside is the nature of the building makes it hard to enjoy the spectacular views but not much you can do about the size of the windows! Wonderful stay... Thank you

Had been recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed. Stayed Friday and Saturday nights, using this ads a base to visit our son in Lancaster and the Lakes. Staff were friendly and helpful from the outset, helping with luggage and getting fresh milk for the coffee in the room. Food was great both nights - including ham hock terrine and... More

We stayed here on the first night of a walking holiday and recommend it highly. Arriving on a Sunday, we found that the kitchen wasn't open at night-we hadn't been informed by the company who had booked the room for us. However, the landlady went out of her way to ensure we got a hot meal which was delicious. The... More

I had heard amazing things about the food so thought I would nip in and see what all the fuss was about. Really shocked to say the food was awful! I had steak and chips which I thought you couldn't really get wrong but the steak was average at best, the chips were so over cooked they were inedible, the... More

From word of mouth I'd heard the plough was good so one rainy evening we went and it was brilliant. Service was great with the waitress recommending a local juice and soda. The muscles were brilliant but the pana cotta was tasty and light. It was very comfortable, good service and fantastic value
