I have recently had a most enjoyable evening with our local Women's Institute group. A delicious dinner - every mouthful wonderful particularly the Sea Bream. The meal was served beautifully. All the ladies had a great time. Thanks.

We have visited The Plough at Clanfield under numerous different circumstances and many different reasons; just drinks, quiet dinner for two, overnight stay, rip roaring dinner party and corporate events. Each time we visit, Martin the governor and his crew with Lynn completing the excellence factor, we have had a fabulous experience. Every element is delivered with expertise and style;... More

As a business traveler, I spend a vast amount of my time staying in various hotels. The Cotswold Plough is up there with the best of them!! Beautiful, spacious rooms that are always clean and well equipped. The menu changes frequently (if you're a little cheeky, sometimes you can order off the menu!!) and each dish is delicious. The staff... More

This was our second stay as a group of ten. We enjoyed the second just as much as the first which was four years ago. We returned due to the warmth of welcome from the management and the friendliness and attention of the staff; not to mention the really delicious food. Don't forget to leave room for the cream teas!

We have been regular visitors to The Plough in recent years and our stay last night was just as enjoyable and restful. We took advantage of the Lazy Sunday offer which is excellent value (spend £50 in the restaurant and £25 at breakfast and get your room for free!). Lovely bedrooms with everything you could wish for from egyptian cotton... More

This was part of a lovely surprise, my hubby whisked me here for a 1 night stay, DB&B. While not far from Oxford, where we live, it does feel like you are getting away from it all, as the hotel is situated in the small village of Clanfield. Everything about the hotel is very welcoming, from the magazines, laid out... More
