Pubs & Inns

  • Swanning around in Lamport

    The Swan at Lamport - gorgeous countryside, family friendly and super tasty; a true Northamptonshire favourite and it's perfect location for a gentle, post Sunday lunch amble at nearby Brixworth or Pitsford.

  • 10 Muddy pubs with gorgeous beer gardens

    The heatwave is on its way back, so grab the girls (or even the Mudlets) and get thee to a pub garden, pronto. It's something cold and fizzy for me, merci beaucoup!

  • Nine fab local places for a decent cocktail

    We've done some scouting round, and picked our 9 favourite places at the moment you can enjoy a drink, whether that be a cocktail, glass of wine or our favourite, GIN! Go, go go.

  • Muddy eats – The Red Lion, Cranford

    This is one quaint village pub that really packs a punch...flavour wise. Super food, fab drinks and a wonderful vibe all together. It's a proper country local with a beating heart!

  • Muddy Eats – The Griffin’s Head in Mears Ashby

    Since our last visit they've WON the Northampton Life Magazine award for Sunday Lunch of the Year!

    Double bonus: stroll and scoff your way around these pretty pubs with Spring walks. Here is Muddy's top 9 that will you have you walking for more...

    Temperatures have dropped, it’s dark at midday (ok, slight exaggeration) and there’s only one warm thing on the local horizon! The roaring fire of the cosiest, cutest, loveliest pubs in Northants.

  • 10 gluten free places to eat out

    A food trend that's gaining momentum and N'hants is certainly listening! Here's a Muddy round up of the best gluten free eateries around!

  • 5 dog friendly pubs while the sun shines
