Been here before and the food is always lovely, booked for a birthday dinner and enjoyed it once again. Service was quite slow however and the starters on the menu quite limited. Slightly more expensive than other places in Alnwick but worth it for the quality of the food.

We were staying in a b&b across the road and decided to give this place a try and didn't regret it, the food and the service were spot on and very welcoming, we went back the following evening and it was brilliant again. Excellent beer too.

Enjoyed a one night stay. Good room, great beer, excellent food and fantastic staff! We would definitely stay here again. Just a short walk through the town centre to Alnwick Castle. Not too far to drive to Holy Island. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

My wife and I stayed for a midweek break and I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I've stayed in for a long, long time. The staff were very polite and attentive, the decor is beautiful and relaxing, afternoon tea was wonderful and the selection and quality of the cask ales were superb. They just got...

On arrival we took the back entrance from the car park which leads through to the bar where you check-in. We're always wary of hotels with no proper reception desk however we shouldn't have been. Check-in was friendly and efficient and we were escorted to our room up two flights of stairs (something to be aware), assistance with our luggage...

A very disappointing evening. Expectations were high after reading other reviews. Burger was okay but the chips were straight out of the freezer, more what you get in a fast food shop, thin, pale and tasteless! I had expected maybe hand made chips. Partners lamb dish was fine. tasty. Staff were very surly, not a smile to be seen, only...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - a lovely mixture of contemporary decor in a beautifully traditional stone building - lovely comfortable bed, with quality linens, excellent breakfast, and friendly, helpful staff. We paid £90, which we thought was fair, but the £130 advertised price would have been excessive - I would expect 5 star for that, and, although lovely, it...

I was staying nearby in Alnwick on a business trip. Given the recommendation of a nice place to eat. The place looks appealing from the outside and inside is modernly decorated. This is where it ends the staff attitude is poor and a lack of customer service skills. The meal was average with small portions and to make it worse...

We stayed at the Plough for Valentines weekend. The establishment was decorated beautifully with an old rustic feel to it. The staff were so welcoming and eager to help. Our room was amazing, decorated with wood panels and a ginormous bed, very comfy! Breakfast was delicious, we both had a cooked full English and there were plenty of cereals to...
