Hot Food


We are very lucky to have some great places to eat that we can recommend to you.


Our favourite place to eat locally is the Red Lion at Cranford (6.4 miles away), which consistently delivers excellent food, using locally sourced produce and has won multiple awards for their great food and drink. The Argentinian Smoked Chimichurri Beef Steak Hanging Kebab is delicious!


We can also recommend; the Tap & Kitchen (with their fabulous craft beers) in Oundle (7.8 miles) the Falcon Inn at Fotherinhay (10.8 miles), the Pheasant at Keyston (11.6 miles) and the Palmichael, amazing Italian restaurant at Burton Latimer (12 miles).
