Nice use of a back street pub, it is opened up downstairs, looks like for live music so does lose a little character, but there is an upstairs room as well.

A backstreet corner pub opened out into one large room and maybe loses a little character it once may have once had.The pub boasts 8 handpumps with seven ales on during my visit , Vale, Great Oakley,Nobbys and Oakham were the breweries represented, Oakham Citra was in good shape.
A decent pub well worth a look.

A backstreet gem for the ale drinker. In an area that doesn’t initially look promising, this pub sits quite happily on a street corner and presumably was nothing out of the ordinary a few years back. The main room has unfortunately been stripped and opened-out a bit too much, though there is a nice traditional lounge room available under the stairs (which nobody was using, sadly). Also a large walled beer garden to the rear. The clientèle were mainly young professionals (I get the feeling Northampton is soon to become the next boom-time London commuter town) and students from the nearby Uni. Music nights advertised but TV sport is a no-no. 8 pumps - 7 ales, 1 cider and a well-stocked fridge. Unfortunately my first choice of Oakham came out cloudy and was taken off after I got past the initial barmaid who was fairly clueless and demurred to the more experienced barman. The replacement of Dark Star Hophead was in excellent shape. It doesn’t quite hold the charm to make it an unmissable pub but it’s certainly well-worth the walk out to sample if you have a few hours to spare. 7.5
