AA Pick of the Pubs

There's something about the yellow Northamptonshire stone and thatched roof of Nick Bonner and Ren Aveiro's Red Lion that declares 'classic English village pub'. Classic ideas in the food too, from a starter of ham hock and black pudding fritter with piccalilli mayonnaise; or whipped goats’ cheese, beetroot and walnut salad with sloe gin dressing, to mains of roasted hake with gnocchi and spicy tomato and chorizo casserole; or slow-cooked lamb shoulder, Greek-style salad and mint yogurt. Home-made doughnuts with warm jam sauce will prove more than tempting for dessert. As an accompaniment, a reasonably priced glass of Pinot Grigio or Malbec, or maybe a pint of Bombardier.
