  • 7 brilliant beer gardens

    Suns out, Guns out? Not for this demure Muddy, however I will be frequenting a beer garden should the rain hold off, and there’s some suitably welcoming spots to choose from.

  • 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.

  • 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, […]

  • Cocktail hour darlings

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

  • A second glass of fizz on March 26? Go on, yer Mother would!

    Mothering Sunday – A day out for Mums, Sons, Daughters and anyone inbetween… They come in all shapes and sizes, we love them, and they can drive us mad but on this day more than any other we celebrate them all.   There are a host of lovely lunches already planned for our Northants Mums, […]

  • TFI Pieday: Crunchy crusts in the Red Lion in Cranford St John

    Hap-pie days are here again for the Muddy Clan. Not content with our Thursday night pie extravaganza via Sauls of Spratton, we’ve just returned from a sumptuous Friday pie day at the Red Lion in Cranford with full stomachs, big smiles and ready for a super snooze (the pie thing really appeals much more to […]

We asked you for your recommendations for the finest pubs to snuggle up in and you didnt let us down. I’m more of a chestnuts […]

    • What’s On in Northants until 18 January

      Right. We’re picking up the pace in Northamptonshire. Only two weeks into the new term and we’re already finding lots of things to be getting on with. This week’s What’s On gives us the opportunity to squeeze into our Christmas gladrags one more time before hitting the gym (or at least trying to be good […]

    • Win a Heston dinner for two, and a snazzy overnight stay

      I think it’s only right and proper to begin 2017 with a Michelin nosh up and a night away, don’t you? Hero over in Buck/Oxon reviewed The Crown in Bray last summer and absolutely loved it. A Heston eaterie (part of his Fat Duck group), The Crown is a gorgeously atmospheric 16th century building with […]
