Fawsley Hall is undoubtedly one of Northamptonshire's (if not the whole of the UK's) finest dining experiences, it's set within a secluded Tudor estate with subtle contemporary influences, an extravagant rural setting complimented with an award winning eatery.

  • Dinner and use of their intimate cinema is available every Fri/Sat/Sun after 9.30pm
  • Offer private dining in dedicated banquet rooms if required
  • An afternoon tea service is also available between 3.30-5.30 daily from as little as £5.10

Within the grounds are two equally exquisite restaurants, the first is Equilibrium where self taught head chef Nigel Godwin's audacious and extravagant modern British menu is an indulgent treat. Open Thurs/Fri/Sat every evening between 7.00-9.30pm.

There is also the more traditional and reserved Bess's Brasserie restaurant which is open everyday, lunch is between 12.00-2.30, dinner service is 7.00-9.30pm.

REVIEWS

David from Wellingborough "Someone needs to make the management of this buffet service aware of the phrase quality not quantity! Yes there is quite a selection but the quality of it is in question and most of the dishes I experienced weren't flavoursome at all, in-fact they were bland. If you aren't fussy and just want to fill your tank then this place is ideal otherwise look elsewhere!"

Northampton Chronicle & Echo: ‘They say the lord helps those who help themselves. With Red Hot we have been truly blessed.’

Sunday roasts, fish and chips, steak, sausage and mash, pies, lasagne, and chicken based dishes etc The pub is a converted water mill, in-fact there is still a fully functioning water wheel in operation within the restaurant today that can be viewed through the glass.

This is a very child friendly pub catering for them with a dedicated menu, highchairs, baby changing station and play area.

What with it being a pub you not only get a meal but a great selection of beers, wines and spirits to compliment your meal.

Buddies offer a real sense of that American restaurant/diner experience that is so ingrained within Hollywood movies and US TV shows. Right down to the over the top, in your face decor, the menu is outrageously authentic with wacky American names and thankfully the portions are not just big but American big!

If you want to escape England for awhile and experience a sense of that over the top brash American dining, this place is ideal for adults and children.

  • Offer breakfast all day and a dedicated lunch & dinner menu
  • Large varied menu for adults and kids
  • Offer their whole menu to take away should you wish just phone ahead and pick it up
  • Free Wifi within the Buddies restaurants at Sixfields, Grange Park, Rushden & Towcester

Stephen from Rushden: "Great atmosphere, interestingly original authentic US food and just great fun!"
