    Good food but service a bit slow, meals could do with being a little warmer.

    Despite my name being wrong (which was sternly dismissed) the overall service was friendly and attentive. Starters were ample and local pate tasty. My scampi was juicy and again good portion. My partner had the roast pork which was tender and flavoursome. Restaurant was busy and noisy although we were seated in corner of small room. Overall nice meal in picture book setting.

    Went for Sunday lunch with the family and wasn’t dissapointed. Lovely pub with great hosts, constantly checking we were ok and that our drinks were topped up! Great venue for a family Sunday lunch.

    Very good value, decent pub grub. Friendly staff and good service. Decor a bit tired.

    We arrived with an elderly relative and two small children and had a really nice meal! The food was very good - the staff were extremely helpful, understanding and friendly. We are looking forward visiting again in the future.

We say…

Situated in the picturesque village of Brixworth, Northants, the Coach and Horses is an attractive country inn that is right at the heart of the community. In close proximity to Earl Spencer’s Althorp House estate, Lamport Hall, Boughton House, Cottesborroke Hall and Gardens and Stanford Hall, the Coach and Horses is the perfect base from which to explore from or retreat to after a day’s sightseeing.

Dating back to the 1700’s, when the building was originally used as a coach house, the Coach and Horses was built using golden Northamptonshire Stone and many of the original features, such as the thatched roof, are still intact. The dining room is cosy and welcoming and boasts an inglenook fireplace that further enhances the welcoming and homely atmosphere. Owners Les and Anthea have been crafting their signature family-friendly attitude for over twenty years and have managed to find the perfect balance between service, food and atmosphere to make the Coach and Horses a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.

Taking great pride in using local produce from the Brixworth area including meat and vegetables, which are delivered fresh daily, the menu at the Coach and Horses changes seasonally to reflect the local flavours. A blackboard with chef’s specials that change weekly, and sometimes daily, are a real delight for all and showcase Northamptonshire produce at its very best. Must-try dishes include, when seasonally available, the blade of beef with dauphinoise potatoes and a creamy pepper sauce; local pheasant casserole simmered in a rich gravy with autumn veg and creamed potatoes; and local wild duck breast served on a smoked bacon and cabbage potato cake, with an indulgent black cherry and honey sauce. Lunch time sees the restaurant offer an incredible value for money menu that offers everything from a hearty baguette or roll to a two course meal for an incredibly reasonable price. Whatever time of day that you visit, the dessert menu holds a whole wealth of delightful homemade sweets and treats that those with a sweet tooth will be hard-pressed to pass up.

The Coach and Horses Brixworth is a truly exceptional country inn that offers a welcoming ambience, delicious food made using local produce and a comfortable place to relax after a long day. It is suitable for families, couples and celebrations and will transport you to a rustic British haven the moment you step through the door.
