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

It's definitely quality over quantity at the plough, the food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Made our valetines very special with a gorgeous rose at the table. Highly recommend thanks again

Booked for an afternoon lunch which incidentally is a good idea by the hotel, by where they serve a quality & substantial menu through out the day. We arrived at 2.30 and ordered drinks at the bar. We were nicely received by possibly the senior server who said she would bring us the menu to which I said we were... More

We always make a point of stopping at The Plough on our way to the lakes. It's easy to find just beyond Kirkby Lonsdale on the A65 and is a short detour from the M6. The food is consistently excellent, we've never stayed for dinner but based on the quality of lighter meals at lunch you will not be disappointed.... More

We stayed for two nights in January. The inn is lovely, well decorated, great rooms, great staff who are attentive, friendly and helpful but not overbearing and the food is lovely. We both slept very well in the very comfortable bed and took its details so we can replace our own mattress with the same! I've only given it four... More

The food and staff we're fabulous but when we saw rooms we were in raptures , roll top bath, double waterfall shower, and the bed was huge . There are only five rooms but all are the same high standard . Kirby Lonsdale is only... More

Excellent lunch on way to west Cumbria for the weekend. Cod fillet with crushed new potato mash and shrimp butter was amazing. My wife's hot beef and onion ciabatta with onion gravy was sublime. Beers from Tirrell in excellent condition. What a find. Do make a detour from M6 to enjoy this gem.
