Description: We took over Brabenec’s in July 2007 and introduced a British menu using only the best fresh ingredients, changing our menu regularly in keeping with the seasons as much as possible. Our food is kept simple with no frills! It is all about the flavour and consistency of quality that we have worked hard on over the past few years. The same is to be said front of house, with skilled staff working very hard to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant at all times. At Brabenec’s we value all of our customers very much and as a thank you we offer a loyalty card. Every customer that dines with us is offered a 20 per cent discount card to return and use within the month. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

This was our first visit to Brabenacs for almost a year and you never know if things will have changed, we were pleased to see that the restaurant looks the same as before, quirky and retro, the emphasis here is on the food and the service rather than the setting. We didn't recognise a single face from our last visit... More

I'll start by saying that only awarding 4 due to the decor could be harsh. The food was excellent. I had smoked pigeon for starter and the red snapper for main and both were excellent. As for wine the Malbec was so good everyone else was ordering it and we couldn't get a second bottle - much to my dismay.... More

This little restaurant is one of Northampton's best! Not flash or trendy but top quality food, superb service and a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Have been now over 20 times and definitely in my top 3 in Northampton. Wines are of the very highest quality and not overpriced. The only negative is that the toilets are upstairs so not ideal...

Went to Brabenecs for dinner, enjoyed lovely very fresh food, good menu with a good selection of food, gave 4 out of 5 as the restaurant looked a little tired and the waitress was not as switched on as you would expect, she neither knew what the soup of the day was nor could she explain one of the dishes....

Firstly to say that we eat here regularly, what we love is the expertly cooked solid plates of food, good portion size, we have never needed a starter and really friendly service. Traditional English dishes with a modern twist served with choice of potatoes and 3 veg. I find the Décor attractive in an unknowing 60's/70's vibe, some may not,... More

Excellent small restaurant on the Wellingborough Road in Northampton. Small menu with seasonal ingredients makes this place one not to miss if you're looking for a reasonably priced night out.

First visit for me to this restaurant, I had sirloin steak which was just perfect, as were the well prepared and cooked selection of vegetables including new potatoes. My guests had Blade of beef which they thought really good. Selection of beautiful breads was wonderful. Staff were polite and friendly, but very busy resulting in us having to wait quite... More
