I have never had a bad meal here. Food was lovely and service excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone and prices more than reasonable.

We pre ordered for party of 20 but most found the food disappointing. Soggy batter on the fish, missing veg, inedible beef to give few examples. Of course we accepted a good reduction on the expected cost but really we did not enjoy our visit....More

Recommended to us by a friend, and we were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and chatty, really looked after us. The menu is smaller than many other places but the choice you have is still a tough one. So many “want to try”...More

Visited here a few times and it seems to get a bit worse every time. I ordered the cod rarebit for £15. The cod was the smallest portion i have ever received and there was way too much cheese covering it, and with it i...More

I really like the place - and have been 3 times recently whilst working on Northampton. Good choice of ales. The food is good - tasty, a cross between fine-dining and rustic - just nicely done. And good value. Would recommend.
