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.

    Friendly efficient staff, pleasant décor, good menu choices. A bit too crowded, tables too close together and very noisy with parties with small children and crying babies. It would have been better if family groups were all in one area of restaurant or at least adult-only parties were seated away from big family groups. Food very good except roast beef - tough and tasteless and roast potatoes were hard, difficult to cut.

    Went with two friends and we each chose something different to eat. The food was delicious, the service quick and friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant very pleasant.

    Excellent food. Would be better if the portions were slightly larger. The staff are very pleasant, but there are never enough of them. We waited 30 minutes to give our sweet order, but gave up, paid the bill and left. Hope that the service improves.
