Ascough's has moved premises and enlarged, but it has retained the qualities that have made it so successful over the years: the excellence of the food; the friendliness and efficiency of the service; and last, but not least, the excellent value for money. We have already booked a return visit. Mike W.

Just back from celebrating a 95th birthday party at ascoughs. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Have eaten at ascoughs on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The newly refurbished restaurant is great. Much more room and beautifully decorated. We will just keep coming back. Well done chris and team. Keep up the good work.

My wife and I tried to book Ashcough's Bistro a couple of months ago but were unable to get in. We stumbled over it again on a lunch time trip to Market Harborough and were fortunate to get a table, just. We could not fault the quality of the food and the presentation. For what seemed an average price for... More

Restaurant value can only be judged by price against quality against service. There are not many places where one can get all three but Ascough's continues to be one. Service is beyond that normally expected and always with a smile. (Yes, Chris the owner could smile just a little more but he must have a lot on his plate,excuse the... More

I was staying in the town on business and a friend recommended Ascoughs. I had a great meal - well cooked pork with lots of vegetables, which were also individually cooked just right, and good generous portions. I also thought the menu was reasonably and competitively priced. The service was very friendly and attentive, without being overly so. I'd definitely... More

Went with my Fiancé for our Engagement Meal (Mum and Dad bought me some gift vouchers) The food was delicious, the best pasta dish I have tasted and the home-made icecream was lovely. I would recommend this place to anyone especially for a special occasion

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Ascough's last night, with two friends who live near Northampton. We had been to the original restaurant further down the high street a couple of years ago, and it probably had more atmosphere than this one - it was quite chilly in there as the air-con seemed to be at full blast .... nevertheless,...

We have been coming here for several years, the quality,service and value are always excellent. Their new premises allow more covers but as always you must book to avoid disappointment. Our favourite in this area.
