Came to Northampton on business, visited the spa and the two lovely girls on reception recommended the restaurant as we were unsure where to eat- very good choice! Food was lovely and we were served by Charlie who was friendly and attentive throughout would definitely come again!

We were late to be seated as our table was booked for 18:45 but we were told we could not go through until invited, which took 15 mins. Not too much of an issue but the bar was noisy and we had plans after the meal so perhaps this is why I noticed it more. The food was decidedly average.... More

I would definitely recommend people to come to this restaurant. Good was delishious. Unfortunately there was a bone in my crispy duck salad and also having to pay for bread as part of the meal was disappointing. Other than that 5 stars
