No food on a Monday like a lot of the rest of Towcester but a good selection of ales, friendly staff, stone flagged flooring and a comfortable atmosphere.

Went for dinner with a few friends and had a great meal. Good choice and quality, with some lovely ales. We'd managed to pick their weekly quiz evening so we decided to join and had a great time! Lovely local pub, would recommend.
