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

1st Visit to this local pub for a meal with friends , on entering the pub I thought what kind of a place had I bought my friends to .....a very old fashioned bar area was our first impression and my thoughts weren't high for our meal .....we were shown to the restaurant which again was old fashioned and homely,...

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

Having not been back for a number of months, we revisited the restaurant last weekend. It would be difficult to fault the meal - my partner's beef looked and tasted superb and arrived cooked rare, as recommended by chef. My beefburger was made from quality meat, dense yet juicy, and full of flavour. Service was efficient and cheerful. We had... More

Great little pub, the restaurant has recently reopened with new decor and restaurant manager and chef, the menu is geared to local sourced produce. Like another reviewer the locally salt beef is excellent, however the big hit was the homemade scotch eggs for us, nice crunchy outside with just the amount of runny yolk, in fact they ran out due...

After being to this restaurant a couple of months ago and being really impressed we thought we would go back and take some guests. The beer was good and so was the salt beef offered to us to have while we ordered our meal. the starters were excellent, so much so we said we would have to bring the whole... More
