Felt the waitress was rushing us to order drinks / food as we had only just sat down before she came over we had 3 small children with us, once order was taken food / drinks came pretty quick and was...

Not many people know of this and so when we came it was a delight because being in northampton you still get the countryside feel when you go for a walk alongside the river NENE. There is a place for a cuppa and cake inside the grounds of the abbey and you can spend as long as you like just... More

Typical story really of a council owning a building for decades and not really doing it justice, using it as a Records Office and just letting it fade away. The house still isn't open to the public, but in 2013 the Heritage Lottery Fund approved a £3.65 million grant for restoration, including rebuilding the conservatory and opening the south wing...

A lovely little cafe with a really good choice of homemade gluten free cakes. It is lovely to have some choice rather than the usual token cake which has sat around a bit too long. Well done and thank you.

Visited taking dogs for walk and found a lovely tea room with outside seating run by volunteers at very reasonable prices. A re-enactment event of one of the wars of the roses was taking place on the day we visited - a small scale event but interesting none the less.

Visited with my husband, my daughter, my Mum, and my brother, who was on a visit from America. We had tea and cake at the tearoom on our arrival. The weather was glorious so we sat in the walled garden. The staff were friendly and helpful, the cakes homemade and utterly delicious! We wandered around the grounds, through the trees... More
