Chata Cottage Inn

Reviewed By wyates93 - Northampton, United Kingdom

Fantastic evening spent at this wonderful family run establishment. The food standard was not only superb but portion sizes generous aswell. The host was brilliant and made us all feel very welcome and warm on what was a freezing cold evening, what more do you want this time of year?
I would highly recommend a visit to anyone I know for a great evening of food, drinks and great company.
Thanks for a great evening to everyone at Chata I will certainly be back in the near future!

New Mumtaz

Sublime indian and bangladeshi cuisine

Reviewed By ChinoHills-MK - Towcester, United Kingdom

The Mumtaz Lounge has been tastefully redecorated and is better than ever. We travel from Towcester to come here and it never disappoints. They have the usual favourites, but I urge anyone to go for some of the chef signature dishes, which are full of different flavours, which is what Indian/Bengali food is all about.
We have followed KC from restaurant to restaurant. I am so happy that he has his own place now, where he can do what he knows best. Delivering a quality product at reasonable prices, along with a great attitude. He will recommend dishes for you. Go. You won't be sorry.

Reviewed By Basilking - Bradford, United Kingdom

Ordered a take out (on the strength of trip advisor reviews) The service was good the food itself was average, Delivered in good time, easy to deal with. However the food was a little on the greasy side, the curry was a little watery and the meat on the bland side.

Just moved to the village just over a month ago, and I have eaten at the pub three times . They have a great little kids menu, and a good variety for adults. I also took my parents here for Sunday lunch, and they loved it. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and nice food!

LaZeez

Indian Restaurant - Takeaway - Delivery. Bring Your Own Alcohol - no surcharges!

Reviewed By Trudyscrumptious_12 - Northampton, United Kingdom

It’s almost 5 years since my first visit to, and review of Lazeez, and it remains my favourite Northampton restaurant. The quality of food, service, and modern stylish surroundings are top notch, and In my opinion excellent value. They use spices and herbs skilfully to create delicious contrasting flavours and textures, and are very knowledgeable about Indian cookery. The owner/manager Kam is a great host and whenever we eat at Lazeez we feel like genuinely valued guests.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends for a birthday night out, restaurant was packed out with a great atmosphere, Saigon is a small little treasure in the heart of Northampton. We were welcomed and seated inner immediately and the service we receieved throughout the evening was second to none! Food was authentic, beautifully cooked and the flavours of all the dishes I tried were stunning. I would highly recommend the various pho options!
So good I went back with a few friends a fortnight later!

The Wheatsheaf Pub & Dining Room

Local. Seasonal. Fresh. The home of local ale and quality food in Dallington, Northamptonshire

Reviewed By Mega5tar - Newport, United Kingdom

Clean and traditional pub restaurant with plenty of space between the tables so you don't feel crammed in. Very good quality food but limited quantities. Wide range of beers and wines. Good service from our waitress - Abbie. And the ultimate test for a restaurant - I would eat there again.

Nuovo

Nuovo would be a contemporary dining experience. Serving a wide variety of quality cicchetti and hand picked wines in a vibrant and modern setting. Nuovo offers a great venue not only dining but for events such as music, meetings, weddings, product launches and more. Nuovo was designed to feel Mediterranean open and welcoming.

Reviewed By Jonnym_7 - England

We visited this restaurant for my birthday for the first time due to its high rating on TripAdvisor. It’s a lovely restaurant and a good atmosphere and friendly knowledgeable staff. Plenty of food to choose from and is all tapas style. We were recommended 3/4 dishes each. Between the 4 of us we had 13 dishes to share which turned out to be too much. For 4 people, probably 10/11 dishes would be enough. All dishes were excellent and well presented.
Would highly recommend.
