We were looking for a pub lunch, but not the £17+ main courses offered by the Gastro pub opposite in Towcester which I felt was uninspiring. We were met here by a lovely welcome and a good menu and when I asked if I could have chips instead of rice and Foccaccia bread, I was well and truly accommodated by... More

I regularly frequent the plough, Towcester either for just a drink but generally I will also have a bite to eat. I find all the staff very friendly, but landlord Ed is very friendly and up beat. Normal ales are bombardier and young, but also have a local ale on also. Since they gained their new chef the food has... More

Lunch with my brothers. A really great find in this lovely town. The pub was almost deserted on a Tuesday lunchtime. We enjoyed great guest ale and had the home made beef burger and cottage pie. Just what the doctor ordered! Good service too.

This pub is a proper English pub selling guest ales and serving up a fantastic atmosphere. People seem relaxed and genuinely at ease and I'm sure this has everything to do with Ed the landlord and his fabulous staff.There is also many events that happen here on a weekly basis from Poker nights,Quizzes ,open mic nights and many more which...

My wife and I visited The Plough for a meal, we were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The locally sourced food was excellent, supplied in a timely manor with attention to detail. It's the kind of place you won't want to visit only once as there is such a great selection of food and drink... More

Finally found a pub that had it all. Traditional with character and atmosphere. We are moving to Towcester so it was great to meet Ed, who was the perfect landlord. Loved this pub friendly, and welcoming. A pub where people actually talk to eachother, and laugh out loud. We will be back, again and again. Mark & Annita
