Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely old Pub and restaurant in the middle of Towcester. We started coming here in October 2023 and its now a regular haunt for us. The bar staff. selection of pies, mash and gravy are just fab, tho I mourn the passing of the Duck...and plum pie from the menu. It's become a favourite place for us to bring friends and every one I have brought here has really enjoyed the fare and atmosphere.More

Every couple of weeks, an old classic car racing friend stays while working as an instructor at Silverstone. Over the years we’ve eaten everywhere locally, but this is top pick for choice quality and value. It helps that the the patron, Ed, is very engaging...and this is reflected in the overall service. I generally book on the day, avoiding Wednesdays, because that’s quiz night, not only v popular but we don’t want to be shown up for our ignorance…… My current pie pick is the steak and ale with chunky chips and traditional gravy, as good as you’d get at the Ritz, seriously…..it’s top quality. And remarkable value too.More

Last minute booking. Very easy to book and nice message from the pub owner. Quite busy even on a Tuesday night so worth booking. Pie Society menu is fab, also a nice range of sides or alternatives. Good beers. All round top find!

If you haven't been here you are missing one of the best pubs in Northamptonshire. The staff are brilliant, the food is amazing and the Wednesday night quiz is off the charts. The Landlord, a young, handsome, and incredibly sensible chap writes the quiz and...all of his own jokes. It is a spectacle not to be missed folks. Get yourselves down there, have a great time and be amazed at how many pub quiz questions you can get wrong (which could just be down to me being as thick as mince).More

I am a true lover of pies so to be told about this place was music to my ears, the selection of pies is great, you even choose the type of smash and gravy to compliment your pie. Certainly will be back soon.

Have been to The Plough with friends for a pie night or drinks several times. Last night the meal was followed by the weekly quiz night that we took part in for the first time. Food excellent, as always, a great choice of pies, plus...accompaniments and a waitress who was first rate in humour and service. We'll be returning on quiz night to try and up our score. Thank you all.More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Tina! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your evening, Kelli and Becky are a credit to us, the fella doing the quiz is however, somewhat dodgey... We look forward to seeing you again soon!
