Best eatery in town

This little Restaurant in corby sells delicious food at very reasonable prices, The management and staff are always willing to fit you in and are most pleasant at all times. We visit here with our friends on a regular basis and thoroughly enjoy it everytime.

Many times here, food consistently good,and reasonable prices. The only thing it lacks is great ambience-the whole place is in urgent need of a makeover.Some nice tablecloths, candles and window dressings would make all the difference.Just a suggestion,,,

I've been before and will definitely go again! This occasion was a family birthday, all the food is freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. There is a small but efficient array of drinks available, all tastes are be catered for. The pricing is very reasonable, especially when you consider that there are more expensive well known restaurants nearby that offer food... More

This place is a little gem, I always go when I'm down visiting my family, the home made bread with a garlic dip you get as an appetiser is delicious as is the lamb on the grill menu that I always get, the staff are also very pleasant

This was my first visit to the restaurant. It is handily situated across the street from the new Savoy cinema and after a moment of hesitation, accompanied by a friend, we decided to give it a try. There were no customers there when we entered at 6pm, which was perhaps a little too early, but needed a meal after watching... More

Have had several meals here. The restaurant is small and first impressions are that it is not all that well laid out. But from being seated, all the staff are courteous and, attentive without being intrusive. The food is fresh and well prepared. Overall there is much to be recommended and recommend it we certainly do.

The staff were friendly and acknowledged that we were running late for a show across the road, and made sure we were served promptly. Food, as always, was delicious.

At first glance one may be forgiven for thinking....Truckers café???? However nothing could be further from the truth! The food is all prepared freshly and with a slightly lighter (and cheaper) lunch menu they really cater for everyone. We use this for many work lunches with only glowing reports from trainees up; to the MD. Good work keep it up

A small, family run restaurant that is holding its own against the new chain restaurants that have opened across the road from it. Found in the newly christened Leisure Quarter, La Fonte is a pleasingly simple restaurant serving good quality ingredients in a friendly atmosphere. There is a good selection of Italian favourites and an equally comprehensive wine list. We... More
