    Excellent service and good food at The Old Cherry Tree. We all enjoyed it and will be back!

    The food was basic pub food but freshly cooked and came to the table hot. The Old Cherry Tree is a locals pub first and foremost. As diners we felt we were a bit of a chore for the staff although they were pleasant and cheerful. Limited menu.

We say…

The Old Cherry Tree is a traditional bar and restaurant located in Great Houghton, Northampton. It offers delicious home cooked food and a welcoming atmosphere to draw in the crowds and make sure they leave with smiling faces. It’s the perfect retreat after a wander round the countryside, and customers should be prepared to get comfortable for the evening as the offer of food and drink will ensure they won’t want to leave at the end of the night.

If you’re after a hearty meal and a relaxing, enjoyable evening with family and friends, this is definitely the place to go. There is an al fresco dining option available for when the sun is still shining, and also a log fire to ensure that every customer feels warm and comfortable away from the cold evening air: whatever the weather, they have it covered.

This cosy feel fits the style of food perfectly: from warming beef and mushroom pie, to the fish of the day, it really knows how to hit the spot. The Sunday Lunch menu is also a crowd pleaser, as well as lighter options for a quick snack. If this isn’t enough, there is also an impressive selection of desserts to enjoy, including the much-loved chocolate brownies which are served warm alongside vanilla ice cream. 

It’s not just the food that makes the restaurant so popular, the drinks are also enough to keep the regulars returning: with many international wines as well as the usual spirits, beers and ales that you would expect, everyone will be happy with the choices on offer. 

The staff provide genuine and helpful service, as well as good-quality freshly cooked food, ensuring that The Old Cherry Tree Northampton is the ideal location for a meal with family, or relaxing drinks and a catch up with friends.
