We dropped in on the off - chance of a meal. The pub was quiet and clean. The menu was good and the prices reasonable. I can recommend the gorgeous Sea Bream. We'll be back

lovely relaxed time, good food and warm surroundings on a cold day. only negative was how quiet it was, a little background music - quietly - would have made a difference

A lovely little pub in the village of Pytchley. We chose this pub as its a mile or so from A14 and therefore a good mid-point to meet friends. There's lot of good points. We went on Sunday and the carvery was excellent. There was...More
