I stayed there this June on a business trip. At the first glance I found the Plough very charming, a typical English country pub. I would not descripe it as the perfect hotel as the focus is clearly on the restaurant and pub business but it's perfectly OK for a short stay.
The location is a bit far off and only recommandable for travellers with their own transportation. Because it is so far off you can go for nice walks though. The highlight was the food and the garden of the hotel where I spent an afternoon working away with my laptop as there is free wifi on the terrace (unfortunately there was no mobile phone reception in the garden but only in the rooms). Staff was very nice and chatty. They only accept certain credit cards so that I was unable to use the company card.
The rooms are clean enough and cosy but the decor is a bit on the tacky side. If I had to go to congleton again I would book a room there again.
