Four years in a row we have made our way from Canada to Northampton to see our elderly mother and can honestly say we have had but one good meal out, until today. We took our cousin and her family for lunch expecting much of the same fare as other pubs and were pleasantly surprised. It was conveniently close to where we were staying. Parking in rear of the pub. Atmosphere pleasant. Waiting staff were good, even though they were short-handed. Prices reasonable and best of all, the food was very good. Nice variety of entrees to choose from. We both had the beef with mushrooms on a nice thick slice of bread. Beef Juice/gravy was given upon request. Our guests had the local sausage plate and ploughman’s lunch.
The little one opted for the hamburger, and they said they really enjoyed their meals. They had never been and vowed to return. Highly recommend this establishment. Wish we found it before but also hope to return before leaving for Canada. Oh and as our rhubarb wasn’t quite ready for picking back in Canada, we chose the rhubarb crumble for dessert. Very nice!

A genuine, warm welcome. And a very pleasant outdoor seating area. Inside is quirky and chic. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding – with great veggie options.

Never been before. Will definitely be back.

Compliments to the chef and the welcoming staff at the King’s Head, Spratton. After a difficult decision as to what to have for lunch I chose the ham hock terrine. It was to die for- the poached eggs nestled on top were perfectly done and the chunky chips were divine! Who’d have thought ham, egg and chips could look so attractive and taste so good! I will be back with my friend to try the some of the other dishes and a dessert we didn’t have time for today! Outstanding!

What a great find! Lovely, welcoming pub with the best food we have had in a long time in rural England.Situated in picturesque Spratton. Nice unobtrusive service.Good range of food and drinks choices. An imaginative menu. All the traditional fare but with a modern approach.Food served promptly, piping hot and nicely plated up. Good portion sizes and great quality ingredients. Children well catered for too.Some steps to negotiate in the bistro so may not suit everyone. I noticed they have a cafe too ( which is closed on Sundays).Nice washrooms too (with top class soap/ hand cream). Very impressed and will be returning soon.
