The Old King’s Head
The Old King’s Head is a Grade II-listed pub that in 2015 was named Rural Pub of the Year in the Carlsberg Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards – a hugely impressive turnaround for a pub that was closed in 2013.
The revival started when Everards Brewery of Leicestershire bought the Old King’s Head, intent on restoring it as a traditional village local that Long Buckby folk – and customers from further afield – could be proud of. In the autumn of 2014 the building was gutted and redecorated, and Matt and Katie Tombs took on the business. Before long, after lots of hard work and plenty of listening to villagers’ requests, the consensus was that Long Buckby had got its pub back again. The award followed soon after.

Today the Old King’s Head runs a 100% fresh kitchen, with everything including breads and ice creams made on-site. The menu features classic pub dishes made with plenty of locally sourced ingredients, such as Long Buckby beef. There is a cosy, homely atmosphere, and plenty of cask beers to enjoy too.
