“Last minute booking.”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

I only booked this accommodation the previous day and I was not disappointed. After ringing in the afternoon to let them know what time I would be arriving, I was told by, I suspect the manageress what time food was being served and she would look forward to me arriving. Very friendly.
Upon arriving I was shown to my twin room although I only booked a single. The room was magnificent lovely and warm, large with all mod cons ie large flat screen tv tea and coffee making facilities The bathroom was clean and what a fabulous shower, loads of pressure. I was well impressed.
Down for food and into the bar area and a few pleasant locals that all spoke and wished you good day. The food was excellent and the manageress and the girl behind the bar were really friendly.
Fortunately I have booked some rooms here for later in the year so I am more than happy at my choice.

This country inn is simply a great place to stay. It is the hub of a rural village, set in a stunning landscape. It is a very friendly place to stay, the bar has excellent beer and a delicious house red.
The food was superb and incredible value. The room was comfortable and spotless and the breakfast went a long way to explain why the Scots are so happy! It was way beyond our expectations and we will definitely go back and explore the area. Amazing value overall.

We have just returned from our local pub where we enjoyed an excellent meal. The service and standard of cuisine and atmosphere made for a lovely evening. The hotel chef had put on a Burns theme weekend of specials.The haggis stack on tattie and neep scones served with red cabbage was superb. We then went in the direction of chicken and roast salmon steak main courses which did not disappoint.We could not manage a sweet from the varied menu. We would strongly recommend the restaurant to visitors and locals.

If you have a dog with you this has got to be one of the best places to stay. Not only are all the lovely staff dog lovers it seems that all the pub locals are as well. Our little terrier has never been spoilt so much in his life! So much so that I am still finding it difficult to retrieve my chair at home! An old fashioned (meant in the best possible way from someone in his 60s) country pub. It was like going back in time. To all the staff thank you for a lovely stay.

We regularly visited the Plough Hotel around 5 years ago. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. Linda the manager and her daughter Vicki, who worked behind the bar, were lovely always had a smile and time for a chat with us. We had many a laugh over her stories about her dogs. The Hotel was clean and respectable.
We visited again last week, we were visiting the area and thought we would stop in to catch up with her. Sadly both the girls had left. The difference was unbelievable. It had a dirty unkept look about it.
When we eventually got the girl behind the bar to serve us, we waited a good 5 minutes, she was very unfriendly and very nearly rude. We stayed for a drink but the bar wasn't busy and the customers were loud and drunk, the language was terrible. The music was so loud we could hardly talk to each other. Another couple came into the bar and had the same treatment from the barmaid.
There were three dogs running around the bar, none of them on leads. We are dog lovers but having a strange dog sniffing around you is not nice.
It's sad a nice friendly little country pub has gone down hill and we will definately not be back. Very much to be avoided if you are not a local !!!!!!!!!!!!
