Decent pub grub, with no pretensions to be more. That's fine - though veggie options were a little limited. Food was mostly very good - though the chips were rather 'tired'. Service was friendly and speedy. Well priced

We had moored our narrow boat near Braunston. The Old Plough welcomes dogs and as we had two, it was our first choice for an evening meal out. What a good choice. The lady on the bar could not have been more pleasant or helpful....More

A group of 8 of us went here ( on a Tuesday recommend Pie & Pud night ) and we had a lovely meal and the service was particularly good. Our waitress was very friendly and looked after us all.
