“Friendly and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We have just returned from a 3 day break, and would like to thank all at the Plough for a pleasant stay. We together with our two dogs enjoyed a friendly welcome from both staff and locals. The room was spacious and very clean, although the furnishings were a little "tired", but adequate especially when you consider the cost of the accommodation. The breakfast was hearty and freshly prepared to order. We ate each evening of our stay, and again enjoyed freshly prepared meals of generous proportion. We were in a room over the bar, and following the annual show, we suspect all the locals then descended on the pub for their monthly music night! Somewhat noisy until the early hours, a bit of warning of the event would have been good, but we were the interlopers, and if you stay in a village you should allow for a few local traditions and lifestyles!
Thank you all, we shall return in the spring, if you'll have us!!!!

Room Tip: If noise bothers you, ask for one that is not above the bar.

This hotel was in a lovely location and ideal for backpackers. The room was very clean except for the towels in the bathroom which were quite dirty and badly stained but the ones left for us on the bed was fine and clean the sheets on the bed were slightly torn and really needed a new one on the bed but overall the staff were extremely friendly but the food was only average and quite disappointing.

As long distance walkers finding accommodation is never easy. The Plough Hotel was very welcoming with friendly and helpful locals. The room was spacious, nice and comfortable. The evening meal was thoroughly enjoyable. We enjoyed our one night there and wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
A very minor point - the door hinges could do with some oil on them.

The staff are very welcoming and the pub has a friendly atmosphere. Our room was large, decor a bit run down, and the mattress rather lumpy. The dining room lacks atmosphere. But these are minor points. The value is outstandingly good for a one night stay with dinner. The menu is imaginative and unexpected in a small village pub. The food was well cooked and presented. There is no wine list, but both the white and red wines were very drinkable.

Stayed here last year before they did B&B (or at least, knew they did!). Very friendly publican, probably the best steak I have ever had in my life, and good beer too (and also the only usable internet in the village too!!)

Stayed at this pub in Town Yetholm. Their website said the bedrooms had been recently refurbished but this may have been in 2008 when their website was designed! My room was spacious and it had a large ensuite bathroom but everything was just a bit dated and dusty. My room door didn't fit the frame properly, the outside door handle was hanging on just one screw and there was a missing lightbulb in the ceiling fitting. Attention to detail is obviously not Andrew and Diane's forte. Our arrival boded well as the pub was lively with people having lunch and some friendly locals. The food looked good. We thought we were in for a treat - especially after reading reviews of this place by others stating that the food was "gourmet standard" and the chef imaginative etc. Boy, were we disappointed. The first night we ate in the restaurant (the bar area had been taken over by the local darts team) the food was very mediocre. The Eyemouth haddock disappointingly poor, the salad with the lasagne old and limp. The only good thing about the meal was the chips! The first night's sleep was dreadful due to rowdy locals sitting outside bedroom window and jukebox booming underneath room until after 1am. Breakfast was disorganised and they really should do something about those awful creased bottle green table cloths! Needless to say I would never stay here again and if I was ever to walk the full length of the Pennine Way and end up in Kirk Yetholm I would thank my lucky stars for the Border Inn where we ended up having dinner after the first night at the Plough, and where the cooking really was imaginative and good. Andrew and Diane should take some lessons from them. They need to decide if they're running a pub for the locals or if they want to invest in a customer centred bed & breakfast worth staying in.

Room Tip: Don't have a room at the front of the pub over the "beer garden".
