Our View

This attractive 18th-century, stone-built pub stands in gardens overlooking the stunning church. It's a real local, the Tap Bar regularly used by the village darts team, their throwing arms lubricated by pints of Fool’s Nook ale. The menus in both the bar and charming conservatory restaurant rely extensively on locally sourced ingredients. In the spring, restaurant offerings are oriental duck salad with coriander dressing, followed by pie of the day with chips and peas. Hopefully there'll still be room for caramelised lemon tart.

About The area

Discover Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire is a mainly rural county of gentle beauty, with farmland, forest and great country estates. Rivers, canals and meadows are all part of the tranquil scene, providing a haven for wildlife. 

This is a great area for walking, touring and exploring villages of stone and thatch. There are also some impressive Saxon churches at Brixworth and Earls Barton. Northampton is the county town, and along with Kettering, has long been associated with the production of footwear. Kettering was the second largest town until it was overtaken by the rapid development of Corby as a major centre of the steel industry.

Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park is set in Northamptonshire, although it seems that Austen never actually visited the county. Other famous connections include the poet John Dryden (1631-1700) who was born in the tiny village of Aldwincle; King Richard III (1452-1485) born at Fotheringhay Castle; and American revolutionaries George Washington (1732-1799), whose family came from Sulgrave Manor, and Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) whose father was born in another tiny Northamptonshire village called Ecton.
