We say…

Along the picturesque canals at Stoke Bruerne sits the Boat Inn, a bar, restaurant and Bistro serving gorgeous food and a wide selection of traditional ales, ciders, wines and spirits. With a fantastic reputation for customer service and excellent food, this unique and attractive restaurant is a lovely place to visit for a great evening meal, and is ideal for special occasions. 

The Boat Inn’s restaurant, Woodwards, is situated in a beautiful extension to the old inn, and has been a firm favourite in Northamptonshire since it opened in 1978. The beautiful exposed timber and barn-like feel compliments the stunning pastoral surroundings and canal-side location, creating an attractive and elegant dining area with an inviting, intimate dining area. It seats up to 80 people, perfect for hiring for special occasions, and makes use of its adjoining cocktail bar, extensively stocked with all sorts of drinks and spirits, guaranteeing to have something to add that kick into your night. 

The menu mainly comprises of beautifully cooked traditional English food, all at very competitive prices. To begin, start with a gorgeous smoked salmon and goats cheese mousse, layered between fresh savoury crackers and topped with smoked salmon. Vegetarians have ample choice of food too, so start with a dish such as the garlic and mushroom tart of a puff pastry tart filled with juicy mushrooms in a creamy garlic sauce. For your main course you will be spoiled for choice, with delicious options including Woodwards’ Fish Stew – a decadent dish of cod, salmon, prawns, calamari and mussels cooked in a white wine tomato and garlic sauce. For a tender and flavourful dish, choose the slow roasted belly of pork, served with apple chilli chutney, red wine gravy and perfectly cooked crackling.

A stunning venue for special occasions, but also great for more casual dinners, The Boat Inn, Northampton is a lovely restaurant serving excellent food and is the perfect place for a truly great dining experience.
