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.

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....

It was tender and beautifully cooked! For main I had my all time favourite, beef Wellington. Again it didn't disappoint. The fillet was perfectly pink the sautéed... More

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

The food is presented excellently, is superb and not over priced. A lovely old fashioned restaurant with excellent service and equally excellent food - totally recommend. Has a lovely atmosphere and can... More

There is a good choice of starters and the mackerel was superb. For main I had the red snapper which was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food in... More

Impressive Indian food at this modern restaurant. We both had the Vegetarian Biriani which was outstanding. I like the "bring your own alcohol" approach and think others should follow suit. I have before brought my own wine to other restaurants (as I don't like their limited choices) and even asked them to charge me full price for a glass of... More

My wife and I visit Brabenecs regularly and would suggest that this is a "premier food establishment". The front of house staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The varied menu choice is excellent. The food is cooked to a very high standard and is impossible to fault. This all adds up to a super evening out. Well done to... More
