Took my wife here for a meal to celebrate her birthday. Hadn't booked as we were totally undecided on where we would end up after a drive around local countryside.
Warm welcome by bar staff who promptly arranged a table in the restaurant for us and we were given a choice of table despite having not booked. Some fresh bread and oil/balsamic dip to get us started. We were given options from the "specials board" and the main menu. Starters, mains and desserts were delicious, my wife particularly enjoyed the salmon and the Ballantine chicken was superb.
I would have given this a 5* rating except for 2 points. We were shown to our table immediately after ordering our drinks; a little too promptly, it would have been nice to lounge in the lovely leather chairs for a few minutes before being shown to a table. And secondly, we had to send the bill back as they had failed to charge us for our desserts! Maybe a 5* next time, and there definitely will be a next time!

Visited this pub for the first time a few weeks ago, and decided to go back for sunday lunch. And we wasn't disapointed.. Food Great, Service Great, and also a reasonable price. Would like to go back again and try the something off the main menu.

Have eaten at the packhorse many times! If ever we think "where shall we go to eat" 9/10 its the pack horse! Always eat from the bar menu and have never been disappointed! The staff are always friendly and welcoming. All the food i have had from the menu i have enjoyed, i always have trouble what to have because i enjoy it so much.The price is good value aswel.
I always recommend the Packhorse to family and friends who are looking for somewhere to eat and have always had good reviews back from them.

Lovely location just across the road from Northborough Castle - we have eaten here twice now since the new owners have been in the saddle and enjoy the food very much. The menu is great especially if you like game but my Prawn Duo starter was very good as well. Really interesting and atmospheric old building - it would be nice to have some more information about it to read (like the Toby Norris does in Stamford) we enjoyed the ambiance very much. The Cookie and Cream desert to share didn't live up to my expectations but the service was good and the beer was too! Definately will go again!

After hearing about the Pack Horse being taken over my partner and I booked for a meal in the main restaurant. We were greeted warmly and friendly by Chloe who was working on the bar and gave us prompt service. After enquiring about our dinner reservation we were taken to our table and after being presented with the menu we were then served some lovely fresh bread on a cutting board. We made our selection from the menu and went for Risotto and Rarebit followed by the sharing Casserole. The food was served hot, full of flavour and with a smile from Lucy. It was nice to see the vegetables included in the price instead of having to order separately. We had a great meal served by great staff for a great price.
