Nicely decorated with good menu choice. The food was very disappointing and did not warrant the price tag. Fish and chips was bland and needed seasoning. Sccampi and chips was fine but nothing to write home about. Presentation was over the top with silly buckets and deep frying baskets. Such a shame as this place could be great but unfortunately...

We were celebrating our friends 30th wedding anniversary with an evening meal & overnight stay at this great hotel. I lived the cosy and yet smart feel o the place and felt that had got it pretty much all right. The staff were great and the food though by no means fancy was beautifully cooked and well presented. Without doubt... More

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Plough, stayed with two friends in the Harrington and Redman rooms. Both were first class, v, smart and quality fittings . The turndown service in the evening seamed O.T T for the Inn type accomodation, but that is a personal opinion, not a complaint.We ate in the dining room, it was steak... More

this small roadside but quite pub/hotel has great rooms. My wife and I stayed in the Redroom bedroom and it was spacious and the bathroom was great. Large number of towels and the shower was the best of the holiday.

We picked The Plough for its location and AA endorsement of the food. Our room was very pleasant and bathroom vast, though let down somewhat by the limited (though posh Bath House ones) toiletries in 'catering' sizes attached to the wall in decidedly knackered holder. Little details like this matter a lot when you're paying over £150 a night. We... More

We loved The Plough having just spent 5 days there and would unreservedly recommend it to anybody visiting nearby. The staff were friendly and very efficient the food was excellent with a very good menu and good wine list to accompany and the bed-rooms were sumptuous. Well done everybody and thank you for looking after us (and the dog). We... More

Well refurbished but it would have been nice to see a little more thought, not much difference than it's sister pub. Decor seems too mirror lot's of other places up and down the country. Food is good, but presentation is a little over the top. Staff are excellent, many from the local school (QES).

The room and bathroom were stunning and bigger than our entire house! A really nice place to stay with great beer and food. The only thing stopping me giving a five star rating was the road noise, so if you want a quiet room ask for one at the back of the hotel.

Just returned from my hen weekend in the Lakes and we stayed in a cottage near The Plough which was fantastic. We had a meal at the pub on Saturday night and it was the icing on the cake of a wonderful weekend. I had camembert to start and have been dreaming of it ever since-absolutely delicious. Followed with a... More
