Olde England199 Kettering Road
An end of terrace Victorian building converted from a shop to a pub over three floors. Some say that it has a 'brown café' feel about it, like similar bars in Holland. All age ranges are drawn to it due to its 'difference' to other pubs & bars and its wide choice of real ales and ciders. The main bar is on the ground floor, and has up to 10 beers on handpump. There is a curved staircase to the cellar and a stairway to the top bar. On the first floor there is a small serving area for the bar. In this area, big enough for two or three customers, some beers but mainly ciders are served on gravity from the cool storage area behind the bar. Beyond this is the drinking area. There are sturdy wooden tables and chairs with a view overlooking the street. A real fire is provided in winter. The cellar has low intensity lighting and traditional seating & tables. Live folk music is provided on Thursday. The top bar is well supplied with many familiar games such as Connect & Scrabble. Northamptonshire Food and Drink Award Community Pub of the Year 2013/14, and Local CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2014.
