Just over a month since we got married at the above hotel. From the moment we arrived we were looked after incredibly well. Every member of staff we met had a smile. The food served at the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was first class. If your organising a wedding give this hotel a visit!

We held a full area meeting for 20 delegates here in mid April. Carla the Conference Manager was first class. Professional from the start. Everything was well prepared in advance of our arrival. We were well looked after throughout the day, nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, light and airey. A successful day, we shall certainly be... More

From booking our three day visit to checking out we had a most enjoyable stay at the Plough and Harrow. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The staff on the reception desk were keen to help us find where we wanted to go and the restaurant staff paid attention to detail to... More

The hotel has the old traditional building and a new building added on, we stayed in the old part. First impressions of the room was not great, green bathroom, crooked wardrobe, fixed drawers next to the bed and very hot. however once settled in thought it was ok and had character. The only problem was the double bed...full of lumps... More

The hotel lists an option to purchase vouchers on their website. I purchased vouchers recently for a friend's birthday and the recipient did not receive them. The hotel have not been helpful at all in rectifying the matter despite numerous requests. They use a company to supply the vouchers. I would not purchase vouchers from their website in case you...

It was my first (and last) visit to the plough. I was really looking forward to the hotel where JRR Tolkein stayed. i didn't mind the comments about it being "dated" because I love places with character. I booked the cream tea and restaurant on-line. They were not aware of either at reception, so I assumed the bookings did not... More

Didn't stay in the hotel but visited the restaraunt on a local Amazon deal. The dining room is lovely and classy. We had a 2 course meal consisting.of duck starter and steak main. All the food was cooked perfect. The staff were all friendly and efficient.

we thought the hotel photo was very deceptive as looks like hotel is in the country, rather than its actual position right in the centre of town on a very busy main road. Once inside the hotel is nicely decorated with an old england feel. The staff we found all to be very friendly and helpful. Was lovely to sit... More
