Pop in, get comfy and have a drink

The Bar - Traditional hospitality with a sophisticated twist.

Looking for a country pub with a difference? Then come and enjoy the vibrant and stylish heart of the Walnut Tree Inn!

Having just undergone a major redesign and refurbishment, as part of a wider programme of improvements to the main customer spaces across the ground floor, we invite you to experience the quiet sophistication and retro elegance of our new main bar.

Drawing on the themes of the railway and mercantile heritage that were so important in first establishing our hotel in the nineteenth century, we have created a modern space with a unique atmosphere in which to relax, meet friends, enjoy a drink, or have a bite to eat.

Whatever your tipple, you’ll be spoilt for choice. A selection of local real ales, an extensive range of wines by the glass, an excellent premium gin menu and numerous non-alcoholic refreshments are all available.

If you’re feeling peckish, have a look at our delicious range of freshly cooked country pub fayre found by visiting our dining page.

For details of other Northamptonshire pubs offering local real ales visit the Northampton CAMRA Locale webpage:
