n a year that we are commemorating the 100 years since the start of world war 1 i think it's a disgrace that the penny whistle refuse to allow the official collectors for the Royal British Legion into the premises showing a complete disrespect to all our fallen heroes and the people who work tirelessly to fund this organisaation SHAME...

Go out with friends on quieter Tuesday and Thursday nights, everything from burgers to platters of chicken wings, friendly staff on and the selection of drinks is massive. A massive improvement from the place it used to be in 2008-9. Recommended to all.

Big Pub on the way out of the town centre on the left hand side going to Abington NN1.Not a bad burger and if you apply for a screaming burger card you get money off food and drinks .It is a music pub at night for young adults and it has live music.

This pub has a great atmosphere and is the only place for 'alternative' people in Northampton. Great place, great food. Pound a pint on Fridays!!

We had gone to watch the Lions rugby, which was on all screens, as our first visit to this pub. There were no food menus, the soft drinks dispenser was broken so no sodas with lime, then no Appletiser, so ended up with J2Os. Bills itself as a rugby Lions Pub but there are much better pubs showing the matches... More

Ordered some food, I had a spicy bean burger and chips. When the food arrived the burger was just warm - certainly not the temperature it should have been! I tucked in as I was starving, I would have sent it back but as I was so hungry (and it wasn't meat) I ate it. The chips were dry too.... More

Average atmosphere - good for boozed up students and ping cuisine - but as a place to eat or socialise? I think not - plastic pub.
