Very helpful staff, nice clean and tidy room with all the facilities, comfortable bed and although we were by the road it was very quiet. Good bar, and restaurant and generous cooked breakfast options. Ample parking right outside your room was very convenient. Wifi was very weak in our room but fine elsewhere.

The bedroom was modern and very comfortable and roomy with a well equipped bathroom. The bedrooms are situated in a double story annex across from the pub which is convenient. There is plenty of parking in front of the rooms. The food was good quality and tasty.

We've attended here recently on a couple of occasions over the past few weeks for Sunday lunch. The food is well presented and tasty and we've always been made to feel very welcome with pleasant staff and excellent service. It's a lovely country pub and highly recommended.

First visit to The Plough. Lovely looking place which improves as you go in the side entrance and get a better feel for the size of the establishment.
