We stayed at the plough just for one night and was just as we wanted the rooms were well decorated and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was outstanding. Fantastic value given that the hotel was of such a high standard, well worth staying in or having a meal in as you won't be disappointed.

I think we're now starting to hit the level of consistency we were searching for when taking the business over in the Summer. Thanks for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon... More

Visited on a Friday night. Hadn't booked a table and we were lucky to get one. Had the dog with us so had to eat in the bar area but this was no issue for us. Bar was spacious and clean. Great food. Couldn't fault it. Location not so great as nothing else nearby but we were staying in nearby... More

A large group of us ate here on Saturday night. Standard of food is good and certainly value for money. The bar was a little quiet so atmosphere was a bit sparse. We received great service throughout. If you can please 11 with no complaints Id say you are on to a winning combination.

We decided to all meet up half way between Carlisle and Halifax for a family meal. The location was perfect and booked a table. On arrival staff were very friendly and asked us t wait in the rustic bar area while the rest of the family arrived. A good selection of premium lager and hand pulled beers are on offer... More

We stayed here earlier in the year and loved it especially the superb rooms and we also enjoyed the food and hospitality but we called in for a late evening meal recently and the service was not so good (they forgot about my wife's main course until the other three of us had nearly finished our meals). The food however... More

It's a shame we weren't able to maintain the high standards we set first time for you - just the slight inconsistencies of a new business - however we're at full throttle now and no more excuses... More

Really good steak for a tenner! I think the pricing is due to change to a set menu on steak night, with a minimum of a starter and steak, but regardless, it's good food and a fantastic refurbishment. Wine was also great and staff were friendly - really nice pub.

Popped in for lunch, expecting a good tasty lunch after reading reviews. But it has changed hands and the good food must have exited with last owner: I had fishermans platter (not cheap at over £14) which consisted of a handful of defrosted frozen prawns with a blob of commercial Marie Rose sauce, a slab of strange tasting smoked salmon...

We had a fantastic meal here. They were fully booked but managed to squeeze us in and we had amazing steaks. Service was really good too. Would really recommend to anyone in the area but try and book in just in case!
