The food is very good, generous portions. The Plough is a very old pub full of old beams and plenty of character, a lovely place to eat.

We (myself, my wife, daughter her husband and our two year old grandson) had dinner stayed over and breakfasted at The Plough at Eaton on Sunday evening. What a lovely time we had, the DB&B was their offer (£89 for 2 people) which included choice of three courses from the full a la carte menu. Our Mains were Sirloin Steak,... More

My wife and I ate Sunday lunch here this weekend. Although local, this was our first trip to the Plough for a long time and came as a result of a recommendation from friends - it was great advice. We both had the 2 course menu - Roast Beef and Apple & Pear Crumble for myself, Roast Turkey and Sticky... More

I dined here with friends this weekend. It was really busy when we arrived, which i took to be a good sign. I wasn't disappointed. The roast dinner was fantastic. I had the beef and it was very tasty. The Yorkshire pudding was huge! I enjoyed the chocolate brownie for dessert. Polite and friendly staff and a great atmosphere! I... More

This is basically a pub restaurant with some separately accommodation. Whilst having not experienced the accommodation the food is excellent and reasonably priced. If this standard follows through to the accommodation then I would recommend it

An impromptu family get together ended up with 14 of us looking for a table in Congleton on a Friday evening. Luckily, because we were early, 6ish, The Plough were able to accommodate us after a quick 'we're on the way!' booking. We were greeted as we arrived and a table had been made ready within minutes of our call.... More
