Excellent venue for my son's wedding. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was lovely and the rooms for the guests were good. A perfect day for my son's wedding, thank you so much. Very good breakfast too

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Stayed overnight after attending a wedding anniversary, which was being held in the barn part of the venue (A perfect room for most types of function). The food was lovely and the portions generous - and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The bedroom was extremely spacious with a large bed, and the bathroom was a good size too. Would have liked a spotlight or something similar as the low lighting isn't great for on make-up, but that's a minor niggle.Would certainly use the Plough again and we really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Of the two floors, I suspect that the top rooms would be lighter than the ground ones.

Decided to do something different this New Year. We were very lucky to get a last minute cancellation so we stayed at the Plough Inn overnight and enjoyed a truly delicious meal. We will definitely be booking again for next new year but we wont be waiting til then to go back and sample the food. The staff were very welcoming, we had a great nights sleep and a lovely breakfast the next morning with all locally sourced food.

As always, most fantastic choice of menu, always something different from the run of the mill choices. food was just superb - service excellent and the staff could not have done more. Lovely romantic overnight stay and exceptional value for money.
What a fantastic location for a wedding or party. Can not speak highly enough of the chef and the staff at The Plough. Thank you for a wonderful birthday.

I stayed on business for 1 night with a couple of colleagues and it was a pleasant stay.
The room was comfortable and clean, maybe a bit tired in the bathroom but clean and tidy.
The breakfast was very good, not often you get a full good English, which is "clean" in terms of not swimming with grease etc, this was clean, good choice and well served.
We'd eaten in the restaurant the previous evening too, the place was busy and the food good for pub food, choice of specials and the wine list good.
Only moan, like other reviews is the WIFI doesn't stretch to the rooms which are in a separate barn converted annex. It needs WIFI in the rooms as there is poor mobile phone reception. They really need to address this.

We have been going to The Plough, on and off, for some years now. My partner has previously stayed overnight and the accommodation is very comfortable and the breakfasts are extremely good. The pub is cosy and welcoming in a collection of lovely old buildings with a really great garden We went here a few days ago and enjoyed two really delicious meals. I enjoyed my moule mariniere so much we went back today and I had it again! My companion's meal was equally delicious. The pub is in a really lovely rural location, just outside Congleton (5/6 minutes by car) and quite close to Macclesfield. The staff are very helpful and most welcoming here, I understand that the chef has now taken over the pub and is refurbishing it. A great place to relax in with a cosy atmosphere, excellent staff and really, really good food, I am not a great one for chips with everything, but the ones here are outstandingly good,

Together with my wife we have eaten here on 5 or 6 occassions over the past year or so and I have to say everytime the food has been very good. The staff of friendly and helpful and the service excellent and it is good value for money. Now my favourite place to eat out in the area.
