We just popped in for a couple of drinks and were impressed with the friendly welcome we received from the landlord, staff and local customers. They have recently renovated the pub but have managed to keep a 'real pub' atmosphere. I also heard good reports about the food from the customers dining that evening, which we will try on our...

What can I say....the food is amazing. There was 16 of us eating and everyone's food was top notch. Service was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for Ed and his team. Can't wait to go back and try some of the other delights off the menu!

Had a lovely home made mushroom soup for lunch. Freshly made with a warm roll on the side. Also shared a very yummy apple pie which was nice as it had large chunks of apple which is how I like it. The interior of the pub was nice too with lots of character.

Visited the Plough for a Christmas gathering and all the food came out in a timely manner with plenty of extra veg and gravy with no prompting for the main course. My prawn cocktail , turkey main course and cheesecake dessert all hit the mark . Thanks to Ed and team for making it such a successful and enjoyable time

It has been some time since I had eaten at the the Plough and it was the first time I had been in the Plough since its refurbishment. The dining area at the back looked really nice and in proportion with the space. We ordered from the chef's specials: home made tomato soup, risotto and chicken & chorizo pasta. The... More

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

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
