I use the Plough Tavern whenever i am working at East Fortune and it is at a reasonably priced Very nice accommodation, rooms are comfortable and the food is delicious. Haddington is a very nice town.

My husband and I were locked out of another hotel in the town late at night. The staff could not have been more helpful in trying to get a contact phone number for the owner. Very much appreciated!---and enjoyed the late night glass of wine!

Stopped for lunch after a local mini triathlon and very much enjoyed the experience. We were made very welcome and all staff were friendly. The food was standard pub grub with a 'Specials' board. They do small portions if you ask and the food is sourced locally. I can recommend the ice-cream! As we had one vegetarian in the party,... More

Always make a difference! Arrived here with no booking, party of nine for a very late lunch. Not a problem...we were set up comfortably outside as was our preference. Service was outstanding, food average to good. Lovely glass of wine. Certain to return if we are in the locality.

We were 6 people on a 10-day golfvacation, and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff was helpful and we enjoyed our stay to the max. Also the evenings in the bar with some of the locals were delightful and a lot of fun. We did not spend too much time in the rooms, but they were neat and... More

We have been there for lunch and it was a good experience. In the centre of Haddington, easy to find. It was a late Saturday afternoon but this was one of the few places to serve food. Nice place, warm, friendly personnel, not busy. Good place for a drink as well. We got a good Balmoral chicken, well presented, well... More

Very limited menu. Kids were happy enough with their food. Veggie option was macaroni cheese & that was it. I ended up having a ploughman's platter but had to ask for one with no ham. Very ordinary pub food. Won't rush back

We stayed four nights at The Plough and we delighted with the room. Our host was very helpful and made us feel welcome. We will stay here again next time we are in Haddington. Thoroughly recommended and good value for money.

A very interesting experience. Arrived, filled in form and asked to pay, then shown to first room at back opposite store room for kitchen. No en suite. When queried I was told "where you not told about the rooms". As I booked on the internet through Laterooms.com I suppose I hadn't. Girl disappeared. Returned with second room key. At front... More
