Restaurant description

Surrounded by a host of beauty spots, traditional country inn The Windhover resides in the rural Northamptonshire landscape. A vast beer garden is framed by the pub’s cream and olive exterior, while inside, scattered candles, an open hearth and traditional trinkets are littered throughout the dining room.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Windhover menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while the ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Brixworth Country Park is a 3-minute drive from The Windhover in Chapel Brampton, along with Pitsford Water reservoir.

    When arriving we were ignored by staff for about 5 minutes, even though there were 3 staff at the computers in the restaurant. I was brought the wrong meal which wasn't a problem it was changed very quickly.when I got my bill I was charged for drinks I didn't have to the value of £10 so that was then corrected. All round I felt I had a poor experience. The only good thing was the parsnip soup which was lovely.
