With the slogan, “Meet. Eat. Drink. Stay”, the boutique The World’s End pub, near Northampton, is simple but classy. The rustic outward appearance hides a sleek interior, fitted with the restaurant and a hireable bar – all in the picturesque hamlet of Ecton.

Boasting accomplished Mediterranean cuisine, The World’s End’s menu takes pride in its stone fired pizzas and range of steaks, but also its well-loved British pub options. Mouth-watering dishes on offer include a meat grazing board with buttered chicken liver pate, salami, chorizo, Parma ham and rump steak, and sea bass fillets with chorizo crushed new potatoes, samphire and sauce vierge.

Inside, the feature wall is composed of stacks of firewood, and old-fashioned brick archways frame the building. However, combining the classic and the modern, there is a fresh cream and brown theme to the decorations and seating, extending to the pretty anterior dining area.

Feature-packed, The World’s End also has late night live music to diversify the atmosphere for those staying out late. At just 14 minutes’ drive from Northampton, it is a country haven not far from the town.

    All was very good until the Sticky Toffee pudding. This was disappointing. My colleague didn't like how it was presented and found the cake part very dry. The sauce was spread underneath the bottom of the cake . Not a normal sticky toffee pudding. Definitely not moist enough and disappointed to not have been given the chance of normal vanilla ice cream instead of banana ice cream.

    Food was very tasty - just like my previous visit. Good friendly service. We ordered scallops for starters but were told that this was not available.

    Due to late arrival in Wellingborough, I'm hoping that my office cancelled the reservation!?

    The waitress was friendly and helpful, and got the right balance between attentive but not intrusive. There were four of us wanting to catch up so we had lots to talk about.
    As it was Bank Holiday Monday the menu was just the 2 courses for £12. We thought this menu was good, plenty of choice and the portion sizes were good too. I ordered the cod and prawn fish cake to start. It was hot and well presented though it needed more fish in it. It tasted of mashed potato with a hint of fish. I chose the treacled ham for a main course which was nice and was able to swap the chips for new potatoes. We ordered 3 black coffees which only half filled the cups and at £2.75 each, thought that was not good value. I asked for some hot water to top them up and that was quickly brought to the table.

    Went here for a meal on Bank Holiday Monday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a set menu of up to 3 courses and there was plenty of choice. The service and food was excellent.
