This is a great little pub in the heart of towcester and they are doing everything to be the beating centre of the community. The plough does a great mixture of draft beers and lagers. They offer a good menu. Everything from the staples lasagne, beef burger, sausage and mash to the specials on the board that are well worth... More

We went to this establishment for a Sunday lunch, as we were finding all positive reviews about this place. We were nicely surprised and excited about the refurb, unfortunately not about the food. The starters were lovely, the main course the roast beef was very bland, looking very light pink colour?? Not sure why... also the gravy was watery and... More

I enjoy drinking at the plough as it has a great atmosphere and friendly landlord. However this is the first time I have eaten at the plough. I had a beef roast and boyfriend had a pork roast. The meal was delicious; good quality meat, tasty roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and gravy. We both had puddings; sticky toffee pudding with... More

Just came in for Sunday roast. FANTASTIC. Cooked to perfection right down to the crackling. This pub has a great feel good factor. Always a friendly face and welcoming people. I would say that it is SO good, that booking is now advisable. People are spreading the word fast. If you are anywhere in middle England, it's worth the visit.... More

Had a brilliant meal with my fiancé, sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce with a bottle of wine and sticky toffee pudding to finish. Food and service was brilliant. Thanks to Ed and the whole team, you do a amazing job.

First visit to the Plough for a while. Its just had a big refurbishment and looks so much brighter now. Waiting staff great. Kitchen staff not so. I am gluten free. Asked the waitress if I could eat the fries, she came back from the kitchen and said that although they were cooked in the same fryer as breaded or... More

Ed and the team can't do enough for you when you first arrive. Always make you welcome and the whole pub has recently received a full makeover and has a warm friendly atmosphere. You would struggle locally to find a better managed public house that always seems welcoming. Lunch was great Josh :-)
