Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gave this pub a recent visit and although they have rules and regulations in place because of covid, the staff and management do their utmost to make you feel as welcome as they possibly can. The service is great and the bar staff are on the lookout at all times for customers looking to buy another drink. The orders are delivered promptly, always with a smile or a bit of banter and they really do try to keep things as informal as the present restrictions will allow. Like all pubs the boss has concerns as to how covid will affect his business, but really, this pub can do no more to try and make it as welcoming and "normal" as it was before all this started. Give it a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Good points: friendly staff, ample parking and modest prices, but the everywhere is tired and in need of refurbishment. The room was adequate, and in a separate block so undisturbed by the pub trade. It was reasonably clean but with peeling paintwork, threadbare towels and a faulty remote control - which I asked to be sorted-out three times and eventually gave up. Not vital, but irritating... Outside was very scruffy, with broken furniture & junk dumped outside the rooms - sloppy! Would I stay again? Maybe, but I'd check elsewhere first... Breakfast very good, with a 'whatever you like' attitude - top marks!!

As we didn't want to cook Sunday dinner I suggested The Plough Inn as I'd heard the food was excellent. We were not disappointed, we both agreed it was one of tastiest Sunday dinners we'd ever had and plenty of it too....Great food & beer plus friendly staff, what more could you want....We will be back.

This is very much pub environment, very noisy football on the big TV. Extremely slow to serve the food, staff are pleasant enough and the food is good for a pub, but I'm don't think I would recommend coming here to eat.

We needed a place to stay for a big family dinner and couldn't get into the usual premier inn do started searching for alternatives nearby. The Plough came up and what a great result for us! We had 2 rooms, both really really clean, friendly easy welcome. The rooms are in a separate building which I think was in old stable block. As a result they are quiet and really easy to access from the big car park. The chef doing breakfast was charming and polite. The breakfast was really good quality, great coffee and Sunday papers. The lovely sun streaming into the dining area also helped. We will definitely be back as it's much better than the Premier Inn even though it's a bit further in the taxi.

Having ventured to Leicester to attend a work event, a few of us decided to Dine out as opposed to eating in the Accommodation.This was followed by several Drinks in some of the Bars, one of which was The Plough Inn.Once inside we noticed One or Two of what seemed to be Regular Customers enjoying a Game of Darts, whilst several others were watching the Football which were being screened that Evening.The Bar staff seemed Friendly enough, and was more than helpful in trying to find us all a Full set of Domino,s,as some were put in different boxes yet still managed to see the funny side of things trying to sort them all out..Decent Beer also and a Pub with a nice relaxed atmosphere.Offers Accommodation too and Well Worth a Visit.

The Plough is a big suburban pub that has a block out back with rooms. The rooms are fairly basic, but perfectly adequate ... clean, comfortable beds, good toilet and shower facilities. Food in the pub is excellent, bordering on outstanding ... basic English grub, but superbly cooked and presented. The chef was especially friendly and helpful. We were on a Richard III quest ... had visited the grave site and new tomb in the cathedral and were en route to Bosworth Field the next morning ... so Wigston was a convenient place to stay. No complaints about the place ... on the contrary ... but it's fundamentally a neighbourhood pub, and is a bit off the beaten track and can be a little difficult to find. As a base for the area, though, it does the job.

We had just visited the Wigston Framework Knitters Museum and were hungry for dinner. As luck would have it the Plough was right next door. We were greeted warmly by the staff. We ordered our dinner and when it arrived we were overwhelmed by the quantity and wonderful taste. I highly recommend The Plough. Zoe the chef came came out to chat with us and was so friendly. She is a great chef! You did your Grandmother's recipes proud! We will be back.
