Location and contact

Our friendly pub and restaurant in the heart of Towcester in South Northamptonshire is open seven days a week, and is dedicated to providing our customers with great quality food and drink. When the sun is shining we have a wonderful beer garden for you to enjoy and in the winter months sit inside our cozy bar with open log fire. We serve a delicious range of home made traditional British dishes alongside a selection of starters and mains that have a Mediterranean influence. Our food is freshly prepared in our kitchen by our experienced Chefs using local suppliers and seasonal produce whenever possible.

Went here with extended family including two granddaughters. When the weather is fine the garden is a great place to eat, drink and watch the kids play. Food was good and the service was excellent.

Have been a couple of times and had some nice food. The value is good and the waiting staff fairly friendly. It’s nothing special, just a solid, nice pub lunch. Exactly what you’d expect from it.

One of the best Sunday roast lunches we have had in Towcester!!! Thanks to Annie who we found to be friendly, chatty and very efficient. The meal was hot and very tasty, the dessert, sticky toffee pudding was divine. We will be back.
