Hellidon is a great centre for walks through the rolling countryside of Northamptonshire and this would be an ideal place to stay. Friendly service and outside tables where it is possible to eat. Good choice of soft drinks. Recommended.

My husband and I came to eat here last night as we are staying at the Hellidon Lakes hotel round the corner. It was quiet when we came in however it got steadily busier as the night wore on, but this just made the pub cosier. The atmosphere was very welcoming and friendly and the gentleman who greeted us made... More

All the staff (and customers) are really friendly, the food was excellent and it is probably the most dog friendly pub we have ever visited, It was our 3rd visit in 3 months and it certainly won't be our last.

We have eaten here a couple of times recently and have been disappointed both times. The food lacks seasoning and I am not a baby, I don't want my main course served to me in individual little dishes and pots. Nor do I want it on a wooden chopping board, I find this unhygienic and not nice, give me a... More

Lovely country pub with a nice, friendly atmosphere. Staff were very attenu. The food is decent, standard menu cooked well. Set in a lovely location in a small village but still had a bit of a buzz to it.

After a successful meeting and 10 pin bowling with my managing director I decided to head out to this local pub as I was staying at Hellidon Lakes. The decor of this spot is authentic and the pub is set in an extremely old building in the village. One indicator of it's age was the low doorways which became obvious... More

I visited my local pub on one of their special dining evenings Tapas and a quiz. The food was varied and cooked to perfection, well done to Ross who cooked up great food. The atmosphere was great with locals and visitors enjoying the evening. Look at their facebook for special events you won't be disappointed.

A real village pub with lots of locals drinking in bar area who did get quite loud with a large element of swearing going on. Good menu with 4 Sunday roasts which were lamb, chicken , beef and duck plus full menu and a specials board which was comprehensive. Food good quality all home cooked and tasty. Fish and chips...
