Fantastic meal out!

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... read 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.

We recently spent a few days in Towcester, and visited The Plough every evening after finding that it was under new management by Ed Clucas, who we knew from a previous visit to the town. 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.

I've noticed that reviewers are getting this pub (which has closed now) mixed up with The Plough Inn in Shutlanger. Please ensure you upload correct pics as the two venues are not related in any way. Thanks.

Convenient as on the High Street. It can get very busy, but has a good atmosphere. Large, reasonably priced menu, but ensure that you get what you ordered! I ordered a Jacket Potato with Prawns in a Marie Rose Sauce....which turned out as Prawns in a garlic sauce....which was neither appetising or what I wanted. When I pointed this out... More

Whenever we visit the Silverstone Circuit, we make a point of calling here. Warm atmosphere with Friendly regulars. The Beers are excellent and well served by "Mine Host". We intended to eat following the excellent reports on this site. Monday, is the Kitchens night off, so we will return again, a cracking Pub.
