A really friendly pub with a great landlord. They have a great selection of guest ales and the bar staff are always knowledgeable about the different ales. I travel approx. 40 miles each way from my home in Leicester to visit this pub on an almost weekly basis which says it all really!

Had a great family evening meal here. The staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. One of our grandchildren has a milk allergy and they took that completely in their stride. Wonderful atmosphere, very relaxing time. Won't hesitate to go back next time.

We popped in today to have a family meal during half term. Ed went out of his way to make our visit a great one! The children were catered for really well. Food was amazing. Thanks Ed. We'll definitely be back!

What a charming pub. Friendly locals, the best bar staff in town, a fine selection of ales and an ever growing gin collection...what more could you ask for from a pub?!

We booked a table for 7.45pm at The Plough on a Saturday evening. We got to the pub, it was fairly busy but we served our drinks straight away and shown to our table. The menu looked great and there were some specials to choose from too. The waitress took out order promptly, we made a few tweaks to our... More

Its my favourite pub in Towcester by far, there's always an amazing atmosphere and it must be the friendliest pub in Towcester! There'snot many pubs i can bring my family to and know we're guaranteed to have a great meal, a brilliant pub quiz or just a friendly chat at the bar with the staff or other customers!

Love the great selection of real ales, always very well taken care of. There's always a different guest ale to choose from, I love the Eagle! Such an amazing turn around compared to how it was before Ed took over, and the refurb has taken it to another level. Can't wait to enjoy steak night again, but it's always fully... More
