Was some sort of seniors do on so place heaving so 2 quick pints reduced to one by the hoards waiting. Once they sort roads out both buses come together and i can spend evening there, but not risking needing a taxi.

The pub is found in Rushden, Northamptonshire, NN10 0AW.

CAMRA Club of the Year 2010 bar in the really friendly place with the bar in the former ladies waiting room of the station and a skittles room in a railway carriage sitting on the platform. They have gas lighting, open fires and a great attitude to strangers which is why I'm joining.

We have visited this pub 14 times, seen 52 different beers and tried 32 of them.
