We have dined on 2 occasions at this delight village pub. On the second occasion we took 2 friends who confirmed our views of this excellent restaurant. We were very warmly welcomed and were able to select where we sat. The host Fran and her...staff were very friendly and professional in their approach to us. The menu is a good blue print of the culinary expertise of the kitchen team with good variety of dishes at reasonable prices. They were all well presented at appropriate temperatures and good portions and also showing the creative skills of the kitchen and care for the appearance of every dish. We were delighted with all the tastes and textures. We look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you.More

We have been here a few times now, and every time we have found the food to be consistently excellent. Last week my sea bass was hot fresh and crispy, with lovely fresh vegetables, all really well cooked. There is a good menu selection locally...sourced where possible. Staff are wonderful, professional and friendly. Definitely recommended, for families and friends.More

Four of us turned up without a booking on Thursday and enquired as to whether they could fit us in. Not only were the staff welcoming but found us a table where the dog (guide dog off duty) could sit out of the way. The...meal was lovely - the blade of beef is a must! And the service friendly and helpful. Covid rules are obeyed and there is sanitiser on every table. We will be back!More

Often mistaken for its namesake at Southwick, this little gem is situated a 5 minutes drive from Oundle. We originally visited a good few months ago and had Sunday lunch which was excellent i hasten to add however my review has disappeared for some unknown...reason. The pub has a car park to the rear as well as accommodation and a decent rear garden. Our food was of an excellent standard with our yorkshire puddings being the real star. The pub has an oldy world feel and reminded me of my frequent visits to my grans house in nearby Kings cliffe many years ago. An excellent pub with a decent restaurant. Tip.....Southwick village has a pub with exactly the same name so try not to mix up visits or the reviews afterwards!More

We used to live in the next town and would often visit this pub for Sunday lunch, we have now moved from the area and miss this place so much that I thought I would write a little review. We would go for Sunday lunch...with the kids and other members of our family, the kids loved it as there is a great outside area for them to play and the food is suberb. Fran and the team always made us feel so very very welcome and we never got the chance to say thank you before we moved from the area. The food that is produced was always great, and we have been lucky enough to eat in a number of places and this is the best Sunday lunch around. So thank you and I cant recommend this place enough, definitely worth a visit.More

Such a lovely delicious family lunch. 11 of us, 3 were kids, all scraped our plates clean. I really enjoyed a traditional roast beef and yorkshire pudding, so much beef. My daughter had sausage and mash even though it wasn't on the menu, nothing is...too much trouble they really are so obliging. Its a good varied menu. Lamb tagine, cod mornay, vegetable strogenoff, vegetable wellington. Lots of yummy home made puddings. Definitely go back.More

Seventeen friends met on a wet Saturday early evening to eat and chat for several hours. With this number of diners all descending at once, we had to pre-order. However, this was not an issue, and no sooner had we got our drinks and sat...down, then the starters arrived. All the portions were generous in quantity and accompanied by bowls of freshly cooked vegetables where appropriate. All of us were impressed with the quality of our food and the efficiency of the staff to get out dishes for seventeen people all more or less together. Highly recommended.More

For starters, three of us had garlic prawns and one whitebait. All were very tasty. For mains, two of us had duck breast, one a Mediterranean Wellington and one a smoked haddock mornay. Again, all the dishes were very tasty and beautifully cooked. Good wines....Slight mixup with the bill soon sorted. Would definitely come back.More
