Decided to try out The Plough after it won its award, alas I didn't find that it lived up to expectation. The decor and welcome were very pleasant and the starters were good, however the main courses were not up to scratch. I chose the fillet steak wellington and ordered it rare and it came some way past well done.... More

Lovely yummy food, quiet quaint Contry location and great service. A really random find, in a easy access location off the A43 :)

Firstly congratulations on becoming Northamptonshire Food Pub of the Year. Been a year since I last ate here although the food was good I didn't feel it was as good as last time, just felt the meat was not as good as it could have been (seasoning chef) the menu has I my opinion become a little disinteresting hence choosing...

Please don't tell anyone how good this place is! I am just worried it will become popular and I won't be able to get a table in the future! Lovely clean country pub. If you like a Gastro pub you will not be disappointed. Great food and lovely staff.

From the greeting as we walked into the bar to the excellent food in the restaurant this was a wonderful experience . The couple who have created this wonderful experience understand how service matters,preparation of fresh imaginative food counts for so much. We have booked a return visit.

For the past several years I've heard people rave about this place, but I'd never really made it there until tonight. The venue itself is immaculate and very showhome-like, making it a pleasant experience to walk into. In terms of the staff, they were all extremely warm and friendly, and one of the ladies really knew how to deliver a... More

A great Sunday roast lunch, all the roasts were good and the Japanese prawns starter which all of us had were excellent. The service was friendly and prompt. Have visited before but this was the best so far a firm favourite.

Six of us went to The Plough on Wednesday night and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We all had 3 courses with wine and beer and although the prices were a bit high, we didn't mind that as the food was excellent. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We... More

There were 6 of us looking for a central meeting point. We were recommended the Plough by one of our young. It was an excellent meal. The staff were diligent and caring, the menu was wide and different. The food was exceptional. A couple of niggles. We were the only people in the dining room which we found surprising and... More
