Well described by BF, below, this superb alehouse is nicely hidden away from the main drag. It’s a bit frayed around the edges, and there were a few people in who had over-indulged, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Entertainment had been laid on in the form of a small lady throwing her (now presumably ex-)boyfriend against the wall and giving him a stern and somewhat kinetic explanation of his shortcomings. Ales on were Pride, Phipps IPA, Three Castles Corn Dolly, Beijing Black and Best Bitter from Potbelly, Banks’s Amber, Jennings’s Night Vision, Great Oakley’s Wot’s Occurring, Tiffield Thunderbolt and Abbey Stout. We tried them all apart from the Pride and Stout, and had no complaints whatsoever, aided by the late opening hours. This is by far the best ale venue in this town and I shall certainly come here next time I’m in the area

Owned by the same people who have the Black Prince brew pub in Northampton,this is a fine old courtyard boozer with a low ceiling and authentic interior.There is a side room in wood panelling,a wood burner at the end of the tap room,a small fireplace by the bar and a rear section with a raised banquette at the back.Outside there is a rank of benches in the yard.
There are 18 handpumps,three behind a column appear unused and a lot of the others offering ale from the Marstons portfolio.On my trip that meant Wychwood Hobgoblin and Hobgoblin Gold,Banks's Sunbeam,Ringwood 49er ,Old Thumper and Boondoggle together with Marstons EPA.As a result of it's ownership it carried J Church brewed Testament,Old English Charles I and George III and while further guests were Nobby's Monster Mash and well kept Hop Back Summer Lightening ,one of the pricier pints at £3.30 ,with lots less than £3 One pump with a reversed clip.There are sample glasses at each pump to help ale choice.
The food offering was very good value,with lots under £5 and little over £10,with Northampton sourcing of sausages.
It's a friendly real ale boozer with a wide selection ,lots of Locale but nothing at the cutting edge of real ale brewing,but be grateful for small mercies,Huntingdon is not awash with good ale,making this a must visit when in town.

Multi pumped pub with 15 available but a number turned round. Nevertheless a good selection of ales and one to which I would revisit.
