Great staff, friendly and accommodating. nothing seemed to be too much. Was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast choices and the food available in the pub was also very good! We couldn't fault the food at all. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable.

We recently moved to the area and we have eaten in The Old Plough a number of times now. The food is fantastic (and reasonably priced) and the staff are really friendly. We take our 2 small children and never feel out of place as it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Stayed here for one night recently .Wish it had been a longer visit .!!. The bedroom was really nice with a large en suite. The pub served good food ,not the average "pub grub" and whilst a bit pricey ,was really enjoyable .Breakfast was included and was also good.

My wife and I are staying here for a couple of nights and have been pleasantly surprised. The room is adequate but clean and comfortable for a short stay. The food is simply amazing.. Great quality, unpretentious and good value. Breakfast also v good. Service is excellent and the bar has a great range of Beers and characters.
