Visited here with party of 11 for food. Staff were very welcoming and made us comfortable with a homely fire. Food was of a high standard with massive portions to feed your appetite. Fish and chips could easily feed 2 people alone! Will definitely visit here again when we are in town.

Having been given keys for the front door and room. I arrived in the pouring rain around 11:30pm and found the key didn't work and there was no-one in the hotel and no-one to contact. Telephone number given only rang inside. It would be impossible to have a worse experience than this as all my luggage was inside and I... More

Welcoming and warm with crackling log fires. Good pub food with options from light bites to full 3 courses if wanted. Not really a place for kids as a bit dark inside, but great for a quick drink and bite to eat. Lovely chips...probably some of the best I've eaten for a long time

popped in for lunch on a very cold and windy Saturday in April after visiting small market in town. Real fire burning creating a lovely warm atmosphere in olde world pub. Menu was basic and although acceptable, was not really up to previous standards enjoyed in this establishment. Very few light lunches, paninis etc available which would have been our... More

Whiles staff were very accommodating and polite I thought the food was very average at best off of a very basic menu which I believe has changed a lot since new owners took over. I didn't complain about food at the time but we were served chips that were not even cooked properly. Doesn't say a lot for the chefs... More

Dear Mr S I would like to apologise for the manner in which you were treated by a certain member of the staff. This is definitely not the manner I expect from staff and stress to them that the Customer is always right and must be treated in the appropriate way. I am pleased you enjoyed your food and drinks...

We didn't eat here as we'd just eaten before we found the pub, which was a shame. The dining room looked lovely and cosy and well set out. We just had drinks, there were a couple of real ales to choose from. An old pub, very cosy and welcoming. We sat in the bar area in comfortable big easy chairs... More

First visit to the Ploughman since the new owners took over - very pleasantly surprised. Food and service were excellent - very good value for money. The dining room retains its old worlde charm and is comfortable, roomy and clean. We only looked in for a meal so can't judge the standard of the hotel side. We'll be back!

I went in with a friend for dinner and found that the small menu had something for everyone and compliments to the chef as the food was wonderful! I sincerely recommend the Ploughman Burger and chips. A lovely, relaxed atmosphere with welcoming staff. Keep it up :-)
