We were on a tight schedule for our lunch reservation and we asked the waiter if we could be served quickly as we needed to get away fairly quickly. Top marks to Ascough's wonderful staff for the help they gave us to achieve that. The meal was exceptional in every way - full of flavour, presented with style and panache... More

I have been here with friends a couple of times and with my husband for an anniversary meal; I have yet to be at all disappointed with the the food, atmosphere or staff - on each occasion, I have found it to be excellent! Would highly recommend a visit.

My third visit to Ascoughs but the first since they moved to their new location, which is much more spacious than the original. This is a very busy restaurant and booking is essential. This was a birthday treat and we decided to have their 8 course tasting menu. Each course was served by staff who explained exactly what the composition... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and return because the food is delicious and the service is excellent. We visited on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was full but we still had prompt service. The staff are always welcoming and polite and the food high quality and the menu varied.

It was time for another day out and lunch, so guess what, it was Ascough's again. We have lived in Northants for the past five years and this is still the best place for a special lunch. Food, service and atmos' all excellent. If you have not yet tried it, then give it a go, you will not be disappionted.

Ate last night with friends. As on my first visit, the staff were knowledgeable and attentive. The food is spectacular! Monkfish was tasty wth unusual accompaniments. My feta cheese stater was scrumptious but rather meagre. 2 morsels of fig and a frugal sprinkling of feta.... Otherwise 5 star for lovely beef, pigeon and scallops. As a vegetarian, who eats fish...
