Bucking Fastard left this review about Falcon

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.

The Falcon is set through a gateway on the Market Place. Inside it's a wide room with not much depth and a low ceiling with wooden beams. There is a carpeted area at each end.
The bar has a huge array of hand pumps I counted 18 but may have got it wrong. Of these two or three were unused and there were around half a dozen from the Marston stable. I noticed a couple of beers from Olde England Ales so I went for their Black Prince (£3.30) which was in good nick.
This one is GBG 2017 listed and is well worth a look.
