Rather idiosyncratic decoration and a welcoming bank of hand-pumps, with a good turnover of less common beers (e.g. Dunscar Bridge Bombshell and Arkwright's Golden Ale). A small car park and a little out of the town centre on the Finedon & Wellingborough road. Certainly one of the better Northants pubs

I had always heard about the Locomotive as a Real Ale haven but had never been in - despite living in the county for years.
Finally took the plunge and visited it and was very impressed. Great selection off ales on offer, all top quality and well kept.
The atmosphere was fantastic, staff and regulars very friendly and a good time was had.
The decor is a bit eccentric - movie props, trains etc - but that is what makes it a good place to be.
For me it comes second in the "best real ale pubs in Northamptonshire", the Alexandra Arms in Kettering being the first.

STILL only 8.8 on the score board! Can't believe it! And it only seems to be me, Nipley and Ollie that have been there! Wellingborough's finest pub, best location for real ale, and a marvellous atmosphere.

Nine... Count them. NINE hand pumps now and a promise of a micro brewery on site as soon as Steve gets a moment to get it under way.
A travesty that CAMRA don't rate the place more highly and seem to favour Northampton for the awards handed out. Maybe the Northants committee are too lazy to stray too far from their doorstep. If ever there was a Pub Of The Year, it's got to be this one.
Anybody remember what it was like beforre the Elliotts took over? Hateful.
Let's see some awards delivered this year, eh?!
MARVELLOUS isn't it. Ooh! Suit ME, sir!
