16:00 Once again we were the only customers. The cellar bar wasn't open but the manager kindly opened it up for us to have a look. We sat in the upper room and had a long discussion about a Royal Standard hanging on the wall. Turned out it was the design last used in 1603.

The pub is found in Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN1 4BP.

First in a small chain of free houses, the others being in Huntingdon and Wellingborough. At one time a greengrocers, the current tenant initially rented an office on the second floor and then realised the potential for a pub and gradually developed the premises. The Olde England now extends over three floors. The cellar bar, the ground floor with a real fire and no bar, and the first floor with a tiny bar area and one long room with a mediaeval theme. Each bar has a different selection of beers.

We have visited this pub once, seen 12 different beers and tried 1 of them.
