First visit to The Plough. Lovely looking place which improves as you go in the side entrance and get a better feel for the size of the establishment. Shown to a very nice table by what turned out to be an attentive waitress. The menu contained a good choice of meals. Considering "fresh food" takes a little longer to cook...

Lovely venue which has been refurbished since i last visited. Nice friendly staff with comfortable atmosphere and good quality Sunday lunch at a great price. Well worth a visit and because it was nice weather we got to enjoy drinks outside in the garden.

When work booked me in a pub I was annoyed thinking that I wouldn’t get any sleep, the pictures on the website didn’t look great either. I was therefore very pleased and surprised when arriving to find a brilliant pub in the heart of the countryside. The rooms are off set from the pub in an American motel style and...

I've rated as 4 because there is no option between very good and average, I found The Plough better than average but wouldn't say is very good. I was checked in by a very uninterested receptionist, it was Valentines night, so she may have been busy? Before going to my room I enquire about room service but informed they do...

I went here for an evening meal with a few friends. We were made to feel very welcome and the atmosphere was really relaxed. The food was beautifully cooked and delicious. The service was good and staff very friendly.

Following the closure of the Davenport Arms we needed a new place to visit near Congleton. I found this place through TripAdvisor and we booked on a Saturday night in early January. The manager used to run the plough and flail so he knows how to run a good ship! Excellent food, good drink selection - A1 we will return!
