Booked as a party of 30 for a Christmas meal and murder mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed the murder mystery and thought the food was good. Stayed over and the B&B rate was good value, even though my room was needing a refurb.

19 December 2014 enjoyed myself emensley at a party held at the Plough and Harrow. Karaoke was brilliant, food good and staff (especially the deputy manager Arian Cutter) superb. Fully recommend venue. Happy hour was ace.

I stayed here for two nights, booked separately, one on-line and one as part of an inclusive package. Easily found on Hagley Road with ample free parking the receptionist tried hard to ensure that we did not have to swap rooms but alas to no avail. Our first room was pretty dated but clean and comfortable, there is no lift... More

I took my wife for Afternoon Tea yesterday and had an enjoyable time. The area for tea is quite small and not what I expected - a few tables gathered around the bar area. It lacked much in festive decoration considering Christmas is so close. I think that I had been expecting more of the yuletide to be in evidence... More

Me and my hubby stayed here for one night. The staff on reception were very friendly, attentive and helpful. The room was similar to that of a travel lodge or premier inn room, big, clean and had plenty of spare pillows too. My brother in law, his partner and 2 children stayed in a family room and they were happy... More

Work Christmas do Friday 5th. Read reviews, glad I did, ate before joining colleagues (as others did) in buffet and disco. Receptionist was nattering as I approached desk. She TWICE looked at me and said not a word, I had to interrupt conversation to ask directions. Awful greeting for a guest. Walked into what reminded me of a room used... More

Thank you for writing although I do not agree with your comments. On offer was Smoked Salmon Bagels, Cajun Chicken Kebabs, Plaice Goujons, Spring Rolls, Savoury Tarts, Fresh Sandwhichs, Chocolate Eclairs and Mince Pies. Hardly Bird food. Have a nice Christmas More

Waited 10mins at reception before seeing staff to be able to book in and then greeted by a lady who had very little customer service skills and we felt we were really putting her out! Room was ok but very cold during the night. Bar staff were friendly and helpful, but we received the same disappointing standards from reception when... More

I booked this with a Groupon, and hadn't really seen it before I arrived but it was much bigger and much nicer than I expected. I get the impression that Groupon sometimes gets me a 2nd rate room, but this one was fine. Top tip: put the key card in the slot by the door to activate the lights, luckily... More

Really lovely afternoon tea for two earlier today using a Living Social Voucher. David who served us, was very polite and helpful, and topped up our tea several times. We received vegetarian sandwiches as requested at time of booking. The food was fresh and and well presented and there was lots of it! We had afternoon tea here a few... More
