Smartly renovated village inn with appealing menu

Open all year

In a peaceful, ironstone-built village just outside Northampton, this 400-year-old hostelry was rescued from closure by local residents a few years ago. The fresh, contemporary design owes little to the past. Rather; tip-top real ales are supped in the smart, light bar area, where dog-walkers straying from the nearby Nene Valley lakes will find a warm welcome. The refined, soft-furnishing rich lounge captures the essence of the dining pub; a comfy retreat where bistro meets pub-grub. Start with pan-fried pigeon breast, mixed grains, baked pears, pancetta and caramel dressing, or go straight for braised cod cheeks, broad beans, smoked bacon, pea shoots and pommes frites in the bright restaurant area popular with families.
