we went here for a Saturday evening get together with family. We booked in advance and were very happy with the look oh the menu on the website. A great selection of food and choices. My first impression on arrival was that it was a very tired local pub. Well in need of attention. The dining room was very spacious... More

If you want home cooked food in a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere then go to the Old Red Lion. The staff are always excellent. This is not a restaurant trying to be trendy, trying to be something they are not with young kids running the place. This is a good honest family business using products from their own farm... More

We have been to this restaurant before but it has had a makeover so thought it deserved another visit. First impression was that nothing much had changed except the menu. We went on burger night but generally the menu was rather limited. The premise of being a "butcher's block" menu was all a bit odd as apart from some steaks... More

Good selection of beer and ale however the weekend I was there the Foster and Amstel barrels were empty. Also a good idea to check the Best Before dates on some of the bottled beers and ales. One Heineken was 2011 stock! The new menu is a great idea however some of the items very pricy. Seemed like London prices... More

A friendly welcoming pub with some great meat dishes on the menu, thanks to the supply direct from the connected farm.

We stumbled across this amazing pub and restaurant after driving through the Northamptonshire countryside with village after pub-less village. A real find. Real ale, friendly locals, delicious food which was attractively served by cheery waitresses and well cooked. The added bonus was that the meat came from a local farm and the vegetables were all home grown (I think I... More

Some friends had visited here with the Aston Martin Owners' Club and had an enjoyable dinner, so suggested we visited for lunch. We had booked a table but the restaurant, although busy, was not crowded. Our friends chose the Gourmet Burgers, which they pronounced excellent.I chose the regular burger, asking for it without the bun, and my husband had the... More
