Under New Management

I had a Club sandwich which was really good. Comes with salad but I asked him to keep it and asked for a... read more

One can only be impressed with the result of Ed's effort to reinvent this lovely old pub. Great menu enhanced by the produce from local butcher, Elliotts. This place is becoming Pub for discerning. Will done Ed and staff. Don't let go.

Thank you for such a glowing review, I'm so glad that you're enjoying the ambiance and atmosphere we work hard to maintain. It's not always perfect, as we are only weeks into what I hope will be a venture that last for years and it can take a while to leave your mark on a pub with as much character... More

Been in three times in two weeks. The best fosters in town ( possibly the county!). We had food last Wednesday and the taste and quality was A1. The Land lord has been in 8 weeks now and has turned it round, very friendly and Makes the place nice for a quiet drink, family's or meet with friends.

Came here for a meal out. Due to it's new management we were skeptical at first, but the landlord was incredibly friendly, and very aproachable. We were seated quickly, ordered up not to long after, and for the prices, we were all very happy with the food we received, and the time it took. We all gave our compliments to... More

Took 9 friends for a meal here before going to towcester dog races. Everyone enjoyed their meals and selection of beers which some were locally sourced. Given 5 stars for food sourced locally and cooked fresh rather than frozen.

The pub is cosy and welcoming, and the beer is excellent: a very well-kept pint of real ale. We also ate here. My partner had... More

The Plough has been my local for some time now and the cask beer was usually the best (along with the newly opened Mill Brewery) in Towcester. However, in the last 3 weeks since the new temp managers have been in its taken a real dive. last Saturday I bought a pint of Youngs - it was undrinkable. I the... More

Not to my tastes, bit local, bit small and weird vibe to the place. lots of old drinkers in there. Didn't stop to eat so cant say anything on that. Staff were friendly.
