    Absolutely marvellous could not find fault with anything.
    Would definitely recommend to others.

    Good atmosphere, helpful staff,food served fast & an enjoyable evening with friends.

    The staff especially the young girl was very friendly and offered good advice, will definitely be returning.

    Lovely meal thank you.

    Food looked and tasted wonderful. Atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. Service staff were friendly and attentive. Lovely evening with friends.

    The food is very good although on the pricey side. I did feel the staff clothes were very casual, you did not really know if they were a paying customer or staff. We both had duck and the knives could have done with being sharper. Disappointed that there was no chocolate mint with hot drinks. Not a lot of atmosphere even though there was a live singer in bar area, could have done with some background music.

    Service was excellent and the restaurant had a wonderful selection of Gins. The waiter was super friendly and helpful. Compliments went to the chef as the filet steaks were cooked to perfection. Had no room for desert sadly but we will be going back.

    Excellent quality and good value for money food at the World's End.
    Staff are very friendly and attentive to your needs.

    Lovely food beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Great service too. Had a lovely evening thank you.

    The food and service were superb at the World's End, certainly good value for the
    money. No complaints at all.

    Fantastic food, great service we will be back!

    We chose the meat sharing platter followed by a rib eye steak and a burger. The platter was plentiful and beautifully presented with lots of variety. The terrine was quite bland in taste but all else was great. The steak was cooked as ordered and the portions were large :) no complaints with the burger either.
    The service was really good, orders were taken promptly and the food came swiftly. There was more of a delay after the mains were finished. Overall, we were very pleased on our first visit and will be returning.

    Just lovely

    Food was ok better than pub food but certainly not memorable. Mains were well priced. However if you want to have a nibble of olives and a couple of slices of home made bread expect little change out of a £9. Service was not up to par with untrained and unenthusiastic staff. However the former is acceptable.

    Great food and fantastic service. Will definitely book again!

    Would most certainly dine here again. Very impressed overall

    The meal was lovely. The staff very polite. It was nice to escape the day to day rat race for a while.

    The meal was lovely. My husband enjoyed the fillet steak and said it was the best he had ever had. It was a bit expensive but you pay for quality. If you are looking for somewhere for a special occassion i would highly reccommend this place.

    We enjoyed the first and main course at the World's End. We didn't order the desserts as the choice was the same as a couple of weeks ago and they weren't very good then, we still had plenty to eat.

    Very enjoyable

    Good food at reasonable prices. Efficient and friendly service at the World's End!

    The roasts were good at The World's End, my chocolate mousse was over cooked a bit, solid not light and my friends syllabub was very runny. However, we enjoyed the meal in spite of the puddings.

    Never eaten here before but will most certainly be doing so again, the food was excellent with the service and atmosphere close behind, very pleasantly surprised

    Nice piece of pork and haddock was tasty. Felt a bit neglected and forgotten about by staff despite it not being very busy at 2.30.
    Staff were very polite and helpful and apologised when this was brought to their attention. Love this place and would recommend it to others.
    P.s. The menu is more diverse usually but Ee visited on Sunday when roast was priority.

    A very enjoyable lunch at The World's End.

    We enjoyed the meal in nice surroundings.

    Excellent service and good menu, but I missed the duck dish I had enjoyed on a previous occasion.

    Fantastic meal very good service

    The meal was lovely friendly staff everybody enjoyed themselves

    This was our second visit to the Worlds End we tried to book for Christmas day lunch but were informed they had no availability so went in on Boxing day instead we ordered in advance from the menu which had a good choice.
    On arrival we were greeted shown to our table drinks ordered and starters on table in under 5 mins.
    The following 2 courses were served with no rushing in between and always asked if everything was ok with the food which in my opinion was delicious especially the homemade Christmas pudding wow plenty of alcohol in that to satisfy us all in all a very nice meal in a nicely decorated restaurant.

    Excellent, everything was spot on. Would recommend the Worlds End Restaurant and will book again next time I am in Northampton.

    Very nice, unfortunately we booked the christmas menu but didn't get our chrsitmas crackers until we had finished our meal but otherwise it was good.

We say…

The World’s End is just a ten minute drive from Northampton’s lively city centre; with a huge range of dishes on offer, it's the ideal place for even the pickiest of eaters. It's both a hotel and restaurant, making it the perfect pit stop if you’re on the A4500. 

The atmosphere is relaxed and a great choice for a group of friends looking to catch up: an occasion endorsed by the grazing boards available on the menu which encourage sharing. A particular favourite with regulars is the meat board, which includes buttered chicken liver pate, salami, chorizo, parma ham and 21 day aged rump steak. The seasonal menu offers delightful dishes such as the lightly smoked Gressingham duck breast served with chargrilled red chicory, fondant potato and redcurrant jus, as well as the chargrilled chicken breast with chorizo, chickpeas, lentils and sweet potato. Don't miss out on dessert: the chocolate orange pudding with candied orange and mascarpone is a real treat. 

As well as the indoor restaurant, there is outside decking for those wanting an al fresco dining experience. The dishes on the light bites menu, served from 12 until 2.30, would be a good accompaniment to the fresh air and possible sunshine, with a range of pastas, sandwiches, risottos and grazing boards for a lunchtime snack. Not only is the menu – both evening and lunch – full of choice, the quality is always of an excellent standard and presented beautifully. 

The bar at The World's End is a little different to the tranquillity of both the main restaurant and the decking. It's a little more animated, with an extensive wine list, plus a range of spirits and soft drinks: it’s the perfect place to unwind in the evenings. There is live music every Friday night, so those who love a spot of entertainment need look no further.

Providing a huge menu of mouth-watering food and an excellent selection of wines, The World’s End Northampton is a wonderful place that’s worth stumbling upon.
