“Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Popped in late Sunday afternoon. Quickly shown to a seat and given menus. Had an enjoyable meal, reasonable price and loads of choice. Will go again.

“No atmosphere”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Have eaten here twice now and regularly eat in other Buddies restaurants in Northampton. The food is the usual good value no complaints there. This newest branch just lacks any atmosphere, I am not sure why. The staff were efficient but miserable, perhaps that was the problem. Also it is quite large and on the two occasions I have been there have been lots of empty tables. I hope that it will pick up for goodness knows Daventry needs it.

“Expensive Burger Bar”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Couldnt wait to go here when it opened as always usedto take the kids to the one in Northampton. Its a really nice atmosphere and the staff were efficient and pleasant. Found the menu a bit overwhelming with the amount of food that you could choose from. When I did finally make up my mind, I couldnt have it as it was on the Mon-Fri menu and this was a Saturday lunchtime! Food was ok, but very expensive for a burger and chips with some exotic sauce. Nearly fell over when I got the bill!

“Welcome addition to the town”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This restaurant only recently opened in Daventry and its American influenced fare complements the Indian and Chinese restaurants which exist. Children love it, they have there own menu. Adults enjoy a large plateful of good food at a reasonable price. It gets very busy which is an indication of its attraction.

“A welcome opening in Daventry”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The food is exactly what you would expect from a Buddies, good size portions, wide variety and well priced. I would recommend it to family and friends.
This is exactly what Daventry town centre has been calling out for a choice from the normal indian or chinese. I welcome it with open arms and hope it sticks around. Perfect place for a couple, families or a group of friends . . . or even a business lunch (they offer a bottomless cup of coffee!)
