Room very good but standard double for two people but one chair. Room also no central light so dark in the evening. Wifi not available at all. In pub another network possible but slow and unreliable. Set up is like a motel where you park outside your room in two storey block. Pub food very good. A really excellent steak... More

Was very disppapointed with our stay after receiving positive and friendly pre stay communication. Upon arrival we were barely greeted and when asked about deducting the deposit paid from just one room we were told to sort this out amongst ourselves. Room very dark and cold and ensure a first floor room is booked otherwise you will be awake all... More

Probably the worst stay I've had in years. 1) They had no clean bath towels so had to use a hand towel. 2) Limited lighting in the room. 3) WIFI simply didn't work in the room, which was essential really as there is no phone signal. 4) Shower door leaked. 5) The plug hole was blocked in the bath. 6)...

I have just called The Plough Inn to confirm what time we could check in next month, as I have booked the Rewind Festival for my Husbands birthday. I have just been advised that they cannot find my booking, even though I have the email confirmation from the Plough Inn not Booking.com (which was emailed to them) along with proof... More

Although the the pub is on a busy road it has managed to keep its surroundings looking more like a country pub with nice gardens and picturesque setting in the village of Eaton. The trip advisor recommendations seemed good enough to try and so we decided that we would have an evening meal there on our way home from a... More

We arrived after a 3 hour journey to be told they had no knowledge of 2 out of the 4 rooms we had booked for that night. We showed the booking confirmation email, which detailed everything we had arranged through booking.com - the hotel took no responsibility for the error and said it was all booking.com's fault. Their rooms were... More

The Plough is a very old country pub with lots of character but the accommodation block is modern with comfortable rooms. We dined in the pub on Saturday evening and although every table was booked the service and food were excellent with a wide choice on the menu. The choice of beers was also very good and there is a... More

Time and time again I have a meal at The Plough and each time I say to my wife "That was one of the best". Their food is always fresh, well cooked and tasty. My favourite meal their is Butterfly Chicken with Cajun spice rub. Served with a sweet chilli sauce and the best chips I have ever eaten. Well... More
