The Coach & Horses clearly has a reputation for serving decent real ales and ciders and is the go-to pub in town. I was looking forward to my visit here, but was perhaps a little disappointed.

The pub was quiet, with one other couple inside on my arrival. They soon left, but others appeared. There did however appear to be a few more outdoors at the rear. The main bar area is L-shaped and there is much to admire around the walls. Service was friendly.

The real ale range was good, without being exceptional. It would have been nice to have had a dark beer, or at least some beers from Northamptonshire and the East Midlands on. Nevertheless, the range was Black Sheep Best Bitter, St Austell Tribute, Big Smoke Distant Lands, Five Points Pale, Signature Roadie, Salopian Lemon Dream, Darwin's Origin & Lost In Translation, Adnams Ghost Ship & Abbeydale Moonshine & Alchemy.

There is a good craft beer range and there are further adventurous bottled and canned options in the fridges. Real ciders were Cotswold Cider Company Yellow Hammer & Lilley's Crazy Goat, Merry Monkey, Pickled Parrot, Bee Sting, Pineapple Cider, Collider & Somerset Scrumpy.

This is certainly not a pub you should miss if you are ever in Wellingborough. But it didn't quite hit the high expectations I had. Nevertheless, it's a solid 8/10 from me and I look forward to giving it another go some day when hopefully the current virus has been eliminated.

Definitely the best pub in town, this traditional pub had a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. An excellent choice of 11 ales on our Saturday afternoon visit. Food wise we went for the daily special, which was a pie, chips and peas and a pint of beer for £9.95. I have to say their pies are out of this world, one of the best in the country in my opinion. Mrs A ordered her pie and a half of beer and when she went back to the bar after her meal for another half of beer, the barmaid said you can include that half as part of you meal price, which was decent. The pub had a log burning stove in the right hand lounge area. A separate room at the back to watch sport on the large TV and the front lounge had a very comprehensive display of pump clips, covering the walls and ceilings. Well worth a visit this one.

The must visit pub in Wellingborough for ale choice and it’s a comfy spot in which to enjoy it.
The pub is a traditional boozer with a large central bar surrounded by various drinking areas and, on our visit, a marquee at the back for footy watching.
We visited on a Saturday afternoon England World Cup game so there were tellys on throughout and the place was heaving. Despite that the crowd enjoyed the match in good humour and even though it was up to 3 deep at the bar the service was swift and efficient keeping the wait to a minimum.
The ale range was superb: Oakham Scarlet Macaw and Red Rye, Merrimans MPG, Phipps Gold Star, Radcliffe’s Celebrated Stout, Thornbridge Puja, Dhillons Red IPA, Grainstore Rutland Beast and Hop Back Groovy Mover. All that and there still one unused pump.
Many styles and strengths to go at there and a fair smattering of local breweries represented. Everything we had was excellent and in good shape.
Wellingborough’s must visit ale emporium.
