  • 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?

  • What’s on until 30 March:

    This week the What’s on has a distinctly maternal feel to it.  It’s Mothering Sunday on 26 March, and whilst there are lots of other fun activities to be getting on with around the county, this Muddy thinks it’s time to put Mum first. A Tribute to George Michael, Kettering Park Hotel, Friday 24 March […]

  • 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 […]

  • King of Curry – Ali – he is the greatest!

    I used to think everyone loved indian food. But as my number of friendship groups has grown, there’s always one person who ‘doesn’t fancy a curry.’ That person is not me. Ask Mr Muddy. Given the choice of the offerings in our house for a takeaway, namely – Indian, Chinese, Chippy, Turkish or Caribbean – […]

    • Muddy does a Bridget ‘mini-break’ – Forest of Arden Hotel

      Sometimes, the stress of a holiday or the 10 hours stuck in traffic on the way to Cornwall, really do negate any benefits of a trip away; that’s why I’m the new champion of a cheeky break on your own doorstep (or near as damn it)! And according to Marriott’s Great British Break Report, two […]

    • 12 cosy Northants Pubs

      I wrote this post just before Christmas 2016 but we have at least another month of freakin’ cold weather, so this is a reminder of some lovely welcoming pubs to try out. 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 […]
