We say…

In the centre of Northampton you can find The Smoke Pit, a distinct eatery serving smoked meat, aged steak and craft beer. The Smoke Pit is positioned between Abington Street and St Giles Street which forms a sector of the restaurant and bar circuit within the town centre. The location is also situated closely between two shopping centres, Princes Walk and St Peter’s Way, so this is a great place to refuel after a hard day spending.

This smokehouse’s décor is inspired by the East London industrial warehouse style and Brooklyn loft apartment. The restaurant is full of mismatching sofas and chairs alongside huge, hand-made reclaimed tables. You can even watch the chefs at work as their cooking skills are broadcast live onto a TV screen direct from the kitchen. Altogether this creates a relaxing but enjoyable atmosphere, perfect to have a treat with a few or all your friends whilst experiencing friendly service.

The menu is influenced by world barbecue and so it is constantly adapting to the changing seasons. It is split into three simple sections-from the smoker, from the charcoal grill and non-meat. If you want to sample a selection of what The Smoke Pit has to offer, or simply undecided on what to choose, we recommend you try The Smoke Pit House Platter. It features a thick cut brisket, pulled pork, pork belly rib, hot link sausage and a chicken thigh. It is also served with a small side salad and a side order which include sweet potato fries and Mac ‘n’ Cheese. All this food can be washed down with the finest selection of bottled craft or bottled beers. Do try to leave room for desserts though as the assortment features warm apple pie to a vanilla and salted caramel cake which will be hard to resist.

For an enjoyable night with an added barbecue experience, The Smoke Pit in Northampton city centre will not disappoint.
