Seating inside all very close together and not that comfortable. Not a great variety of drinks at the bar for a pub. Bands start to late in the evening. Bar staff friendly though.

Come to Brackley regularly to see family and have always loved the atmosphere here, in the daytime it is a fantastic family pub serving exceptional food and in the evenings it transforms into a lively party suitable for all. Will definitely return

Family run pub restaurant tucked just behind the town hall. The menu has a variety of home made, locally sourced options ranging from light lunches through to main meals and sharing platters. There is always a minimum of 3 quality house ales available and a very good wine selection.
