As you walk through the town of Northampton you can see evidence of its former prosperity, in particular in the grand church of All Saints built in 1675 (one of the best examples of this date outside London). The church is a prominent landmark in the town centre near the market and is a joy to explore inside, with its box pews, memorials, pulpit and preaching stands, plus there are regular organ recitals.

As soon as we walked through the door, the place looked familiar! The oval windows, the magnificent ceiling, the light! The gentleman who welcomed us in was very knowledgeable and explained that it had been built after the Great Fire of 1675 and used some of Wren's ideas and even his plasterer! The current building is only half the size of the original but it is well worth seeing. Northampton had supported the Parliamentarians during the Civil War so Charles II was not well disposed towards the people, but was persuaded to give 1000 tons of timber to the rebuilding effort - hence his huge statue on the portico and various mentions inside the building. Worth looking around and checking out the details!

We were in Northampton staying with friends for Pride/Eurovision and were ready for a cuppa. We'd been here before, but our friends thought the café had closed, so were pleased to see it open, perhaps under new management? From looking at reviews, it looks like it's a social enterprise, helping people to find work after suffering personal issues, so it's a great place to support, especially when you see people reduced to living in tents in the church grounds which we found heartbreaking for what was once a rich nation, before that bloody referendum. While you're here, do have a look inside the church itself, it's quite grand. Shame they didn't a rainbow flag flying somewhere, like the rest of Northampton, though.

Thanks for your visit! Unfortunately, our flag pole fell apart two months ago meaning we couldn't fly a flag. We enjoyed Pride, nevertheless!

Food and coffee is not good. Had a very soggy prawn sandwich. Not a good experience. Staff were polite. Tatty and old fashioned.

Popped in while town. Have been in before and it was ok. Think this time we picked a bad day. Hot food seems to be finished by 3pm on a saturday. We opted for a toasted teacake instead. They burnt 3!!! Come on guys thats easy cooking. We Could only have 1 large cup of coffee as they were out of cups! Is it asking to much to swill one out??? Never mind we made do with one large and one medium!To add insult to injury i then saw one of the staff make herself a cup of coffee IN A LARGE CUP. I got the whole impression that everything was to much trouble. Was a shame as the staff and what we did eat and drink were very nice.
