We visited The Turnpike earlier this month and were pleasantly surprised. After our last visit we vowed we wouldn't go again! The restaurant has recently been refurbished and there is a new menu. I can honestly say that all of our meals (4 of us) were really good, the food was tasty, hot and cooked just right. I had the... More

Booked for 7pm and finally ordered at 8pm. Requested a round table for 10 told no problem when the booking was made only to get an oblong table as the round table seats 8. The family members visiting from Australia were very disappointed with the standard of service and my cousin had plastic in his meal. Took the price off... More

No-where up to the normal excellent standard I have enjoyed. How dare I book online for a midday seating. I should have known that this was the chaotic breakfast-lunch changeover period. The online system let me book! My punishment for my error was to be sent over the bar to buy drinks. 'There ARE other people waiting to be seated,... More

The Marketing Blurb would have you believe that Beefeater is the masters of meat but sadly it's well from the truth. Pleasant pub but the food struggles to be average, A tough steak that NEEDED the complimentary Hacksaw to cut through it. Didn't expect different to be honest we were just hungry. Staff helpful & friendly but food well below... More

Take my word for it. You will not be disappointed in any way. Good food choice, good prices and good staff. And excellent venue to meet up with friends and enjoy a few hours good company, laughs and outstanding hospitality. Book now! Or you'll regret not doing so!

Visiting the Turnpike in Northampton we received a good meal but the meal was made so much more enjoyable because we had a courteous, friendly waitress. Her name was Rosie N? and she was attentive and kind without being overbearing or intrusive. Well done to this lady who made our meal so much more enjoyable. - Dining establishments need good...

Visited with family for birthday meal. Harriet looked after us very well, attentive but not obtrusive (very difficult to strike that balance). The food was cooked to perfection - mixed grills, chicken. The 3 year old was treated with the same respect as the adults. The evening was an absolute pleasure.
