Food

  • The Fat Duck, Bray

    The waiting list just got longer. Not Northants based, but newsworthy, as Heston Blumenthal’s Berkshire restaurant is named 10th best in the world.

  • Muddy teams up with Althorp

    Who will you vote for as your favourite exhibitor at this brilliant festival of food, fun and frolics?

  • Mini staycation – The Narrowboat, Weedon

    Weekend breaks, secret dates, and catching up with mates. It’s a step into rural Northamptonshire, but offers the cuisine most often associated with gastro cuisine.

  • 6 reasons The Kitchen Secret will change your life

    The Kitchen Secret, brainchild of the scrumptious Tash Perkins, who comes to your kitchen, chops, dices, steams, stirs, whisks, frys and roasts you up a storm with only the freshest ingredients. Oh and did I mention she does all the food shopping too (calm down Mudsters, I can hear the excited screams from here)!

  • The Brampton Halt

    It’s good for a beer festival AND for a meal, read our review of the pub set in Northamptonshire’s gorgeous countryside (and there’s a pond)!

  • 10 brilliant things to do this week…

    We’ve got glamour, we’ve got St Georges day and the rug rats have gone back to school! The county has more than its fair share of indoor and outdoor fun on offer, so pour a coffee, pull up a pew and enjoy the silence while you plan your week’s fun! Las Vegas Party Night, Whittlebury Hall, […]

  • Battle of the Bangers on St George’s Day

    The Welsh may have their leeks, the Scots their Haggis, and the Irish, er potatoes, but what do English Northamptonshire types have to celebrate on our patron saint’s day? Dragon burgers?  Nope – sausages. I’d like to claim that the common sausage was English, and specifically – from Northants but it’s not, so bear with […]

  • Wouldn’t you though?

    Corby based Seed and Bean bring us a range of 21 ethical, organic, delicious palate pleasing chocolate bars to choose from. Who needs an excuse to partake?

    • Our daily Bread & Pullet

      Those of you Mudsters who were here at the genesis of Muddy in February last year will recall that Adam Church, Head Chef and part owner of the Bread and Pullet, was one of the first of the Northants establishment to open its doors to Muddy Stilettos and we gave the food and the ambience a glowing review. Well, we’re both a year older, we’re still seeing each other but are we still in love?

    • Cocktail hour darlings

      Superb cocktails at half the price! The Fox and Hounds is rather classy for a pub and we took full advantage
