Part of an M&B chain and the food was as usual up to their set standard. However on this evening we both felt that our food was overcooked so it was not as we would have normally expected. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived at about 19:00 but goy very noisy by 20:30.

Today was the first time I had eaten here, I met with three friends, we were shown to our table and asked if we'd like drinks, we didn't wait long and was also given a bottle of iced water complimentary ! Nice touch, we browsed the menus and chose our mains, three of us had salads, all chose salmon with... More

My friends and I have been working our way across pubs and restaurants around Northamptonshire for some years now as it's a halfway point for us all. We went to this pub just before Christmas and had a wonderful experience. The bar area is warm and welcoming and dogs are allowed. Then there's the restaurant. The food was great, service... More

Literally cannot get enough of this place, It's always the best food in the area. Unfortunately it is starting to draw the rowdy crowds that want to sit and get drunk in the bar on expensive ale. The staff are fabulous and friendly. The food is good, fresh and well presented.

Decided to eat here instead of the Holiday Inn we were staying in 4 miles away as hotel overpriced and bland. Good welcome, friendly efficient service followed a great meal at a reasonable price. Good wine menu as well.

I came across this pub as I drove along. Easy to park. Nice venue. Food was ok but wasn't amazing. I thought the roast was a little pricey for how much you got.

Westy7119, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. Sorry you felt our roasts didn't represent good value for money, hopefully if you are passing again you'll give us another chance and sample something else from the menu. Regards, Nick More

Being a local haunt we went for dinner to find our meals were sadly average. Not something we're used to at one of our favourite places. Normally wouldn't make comment as everyone can have an off day but the whole feel of the place was oddly different. We didn't complain as the food was acceptable but the dark haired lady... More
