Description: Situated in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside 2 miles from Althorp House, the ancestral home of Diana, Princess of Wales. A traditional village inn with character and charm. We are a privately owned and run free house with a selection of well kept real ales and lagers plus an extensive wine list. Runners-up in the Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards 2009. A great place to spend a lunchtime or evening.

Really lovely pub in a beautiful village offering great food and a good beer. Not many covers here, so it is best to book - but worth the effort!

I came for dinner with a friend and we both gushed about the food and service. We had gin and tonics beforehand (they have a nice selection, I recommend the pink gin) and were then shown to our table. We tried the crab starter, duck and venison mains and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert - all incredibly tasty and beautifully presented.

For a country pub it was soulless, quiet and cold. The food was good, but a bit overly fancy and not normal country pub fare really. I would return but hope that there are more other pub goers and diners to create a bit more of an atmosphere and warmth.

I last ate here a few years ago and remember good food. However, when we went for lunch yesterday the food was dry and obviously re-heated and overpriced for what it was. The pudding was better but nothing special. Service was fine but overall we were disappointed and I don't think we shall return.

We ate here on new year's day and service and food very good. We had dogs with us who were very welcome in the bar.
