The Falcon at Fotheringhay

Fotheringhay deserves a good pub and luckily it has The Falcon, which is a class act. It wouldn’t be right if this pretty village, once home to Fotheringhay Castle – birthplace of Richard III and scene of Mary Queen of Scots’ beheading – didn’t have a hostelry to live up to its historical credentials.

With a string of awards under its belt, including various Northamptonshire Dining Pub of the Year gongs, the food and drink served at the Falcon is, generally speaking, excellent.

This is no spit-and-sawdust local – dining is the focus – but The Falcon simultaneously does a good job of hanging on to some elements that make a friendly traditional village pub. Local beers are served – from Barnwell-based Digfield Ales, for example – and the welcome is warm.

There are plenty of comfortable dining areas, including orangery with views of the eye-catching 15th century village church, and the ‘Tap Bar’ – a cute self-contained little room.

Our reviewer, who found himself in the Tap Bar because he was with his dog (canines are permitted in there but not anywhere else inside), wrote: “The welcome was generous from all the waiting staff, despite our antisocial terrier and the fact we were half an hour late.

“Food arrived swiftly and our shared watermelon with mint and mozzarella starter was a startlingly good combination. My main of pork tenderloin with roasted sweet potato was also excellent, as was my wife’s Gressingham duck. It was good to see the Tap Bar fill up with locals as the evening wore on.”
