“Cracking family run pub and top-notch Sunday Roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Struggle to find a decent Sunday Roast in Northampton but you won't find better than this. It was good some months ago, but they have really upped their game and it is now even better. Great range of real ales well kept. They really cater for everyone. Varied live music for both young and old. A really vibrant, well managed good old English (with a nod to the Irish!) pub with exceptional home cooked food.

“Loving the Lamplighter................”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Been a few times recently, lunch time snack, sunday lunch and to a private party on a busy Saturday night. Good value food, great beer, bottles, mirrors and glasses all spotless and evidence of a genuine and sustained effort to both make and keep the place nice.
Its a welcoming and evidently very well managed little oasis that really does deserve to do well.

“Super Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Vibrant. Busy but not packed. Good roast (at £8.95 a head). Attentive service. Interesting real ale selection. Pleasant music in the background. The Lamplighter is highly recommended for a relaxing and tasty Sunday lunch.

“If Carlsberg did pubs......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited Northampton recently and heard about this great pub from friends. We decided to visit given their rave review and weren't disappointed. We arrived early evening for food which was delicious and stayed on to enjoy a dj set. The atmosphere was chilled and staff were very friendly. I can highly recommend a visit here, this is how pubs should be run.
