A superb community pub just off the town centre ring road and more the better for it. One large room plus a small snug to the rear plays host to regular gig nights and an open mic night on Monday. Pictures of old Northampton pubs adjourn the walls. A function room has recently been opened upstairs. There are four guest beers in addition to four beers from regularly featured breweries, often LocAle. Quiz nights are on Wednesday along with regular beer festivals. Judged Local CAMRA Pub of the Year 2013. Support of local business is an ethos of the pub and, as well as local ales, includes craft beer (Maule Brewing), distillers (Warner Edwards gin) and a lot of food suppliers.
