Nick Davies left this review about The Old Red Lion

You sort of expect somewhere called Litchborough to be rather grand, with a university and cathedral and wotnot, a cross between Litchfield and Loughborough. In fact it's a tiny village, church, pub that doubles as a shop and a few houses nestled in the depths of rural Northamptonshire.

The pub is an ancient stone building, with a small public bar and a couple of other small snugs to the front, with a recent restaurant extension behind. The bar hasn't changed in a decase or seven, with stone floors and a huge inglenook fireplace which must be welcoming on a wintry day. And the welcome is friendly too, with three local brews to choose from, though my Great Oakley Egret was tired.

It's in the GBG and well worth nosing out if you are in the area.
