Comfy warm beds,good hot showers, a great cooked breakfast (excellent bacon) and a step back in time. The Plough might be a little dated, but that's central to it's unique charm. The staff offer genuine smiles rather than corporate civility.
The restaurant produces first class, stylish dishes good enough to compete with many top eateries in the city.It deserves to be busier than it is.
Wifi connection was straight forward and free. Same for the car park
The lounge bar has a touch of 1920s glamour, accompanied by creaking floor boards and a hint of Agatha Christie - count the mirrors to crack from side to side !
If you want modern, sleek and trendy,with loud bar music, find somewhere else.
Perfect to settle down with a large glass and a good book, the Plough & Harrow is a little Brummie treasure. Please don't stay there - I like the peace and quiet !
