The Malt Shovel, Northampton

A gem of a pub in a town not particularly renowned for it's traditional boozers. A shrine to the defunct Northampton Brewery Company and Phipps's Breweries and the only remaining pub left displaying the illuminated NBC "star" trade mark outside as a beacon to attract the "faithful".

A drinker's paradise, supporting two local breweries (Great Oakley and Frog Island), which attracts an eclectic and cosmopolitan crowd - all with the following in mind; to enjoy decent beer and good company plus friendly, efficient service.

Enjoy crib, dominoes and other traditional pub games. Marvel at the landlord's incredible collection of enamel signs and other breweriana - especially his twin (working) clocks behind the bar advertising the two local breweries that once stood opposite. Maximum score!

The White Swan, Harringworth

Good selection of local beer and tasty food in this very pleasant Northamptonshire pub in the lee of the magnificent Harringworth Viaduct, which dominates both the village and the Welland Valley. Only a stone's throw to the county border with Rutland.

Friendly, efficient service in welcoming surroundings. Well worth a visit!

Plough Inn, Everdon

Very friendly guv'nor at the helm of this attractive stone built pub in a pretty Northamptonshire village. Popular with walkers and close to the nearby Everdon Stubbs woodland noted for it's bluebells in the spring.

Whilst the beer range is unusual for the area (Bass and Ruddles County), it hardly inspires one and it's such a shame as this is the sort of place crying out for at least one good local ale. The food is simple yet well prepared and reasonably priced. A homely pub with a warm welcome. Worth a try!
