Situated right next door to the Royal and Derngate theatre, The Mailcoach in the centre of Northampton’s busy city life is in the perfect location if you’re after a nice meal before or after a performance. Serving excellent quality food to their loyal customers and providing entertainment such as board games when it gets a little less hectic, it’s no surprise at all that it’s become a firm favourite for the regular theatre-goers.
They offer a wide selection of food, from burgers and steaks, to sandwiches and pub classics – the stuffed chicken breast in bacon being a popular choice – as well as an impressive list of wines and the usual spirits and beers expected at a pub. The Mailcoach however, go out of their way to ensure that the food they serve is not considered low-quality pub food and dismissed: they use fresh produce and all the food is cooked on the premises. They definitely pride themselves on the care they put into every dish, and this is reflected in the quality.
The atmosphere is also a big hit with customers: on Friday and Saturday nights they stay open until 1am, and with no rowdy guests causing commotion, it is a lovely way to wind down and enjoy a few drinks with friends. They also offer a burger night on Wednesday evenings and a steak night on Friday evenings, making use of their most popular dishes to bring in the crowds. Their pre-theatre offer, which guarantees 10% off the price with a ticket or booking confirmation, is a way for theatre-lovers to save, and shows that they do cater to their most loyal customers.
So whether your meal is part of a night out at the theatre or not, The Mailcoach Northampton promises good food, great service and a fun night out for everyone.
