Restaurant description

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.

    We love The Worlds End! We don't get to come too often as we have a very fussy 8 year old who basically only eats things like nuggets and chips, but we think the food is amazing. Reasonably priced (especially the Sunday menu). Lovely atmosphere and setting. Beautiful pub/restaurant. Highly recommended. Can't wait for our next "child free" day to come again.

    It’s always a nice experience. Staff are so nice. Food, whilst expensive, is lovely ... hence we keep going back! Due to Covid and my health I feel safer eating outside. Downside is we were pestered by wasps and it was the same last time. Think it would help if there were citronella candles on the tables- just a thought. One star lost for that. Otherwise was a nice visit. Thanks

    I had looked on line and decided on the Lasagne but different menu when we got there, opted for the fish and chips instead. Perfect, the fish was fresh with great batter, mushy peas as they should be, chips were light and crisp, even the tartare sauce which I don't ususlly eat was delicious, nicely presented. My husband had the sea bass taco's, nice to try something different, he enjoyed it, and we will be going again. The barmaid/watteress was lovely too, smiley and good at her job.

    My friend and I went for the £12 lunch menu which was fine for us but I do think that only 3 choices for each course is a little sparce. The food was of good quality and plenty of it. The restaurant itself is very pleasant and tastefully decorated.

    I had the Cod & Salmon meal the fish & the vegetables were cooked & the meal presentation looked really nice. The downfall was the potatoes which wasn’t very nice at all & brown to look at.

    Good quality and very tasty dinner, reasonably priced, pleasant atmosphere and good service. Really can’t ask for more on a Sunday afternoon.
