Award-winning gastro and wine pub, The Red Lion, was given a new lease of life by Andrew and Sarah Banks in 2004, and is now one of the friendliest, liveliest eateries in the region. The contemporary restaurant consistently thrills customers by delivering on its promise of 'top food, top wine, at pub prices'.

After an enlightening chat concerning wine with Andrew, I was handed the menu, which changes monthly to accommodate seasonal ingredients. Their local sourcing ethos is applied wherever possible - all game is from a nearby farm, while the beef is reared in the surrounding area. The list of lunchtime snacks is truly tempting, including homemade soup and faggots with fries and mushy peas - freshly made baguettes are also available.

I began with mild chillies, cream cheese and olives with crusty bread. Washed down with a glass of Portuguese red, it was really quite special, as was my main of slow-roasted pork belly with onion and mustard sauce. It was soft, not too fatty and brimming with flavour. Finally, I was treated to date and sticky toffee pudding, complemented by one of Andrew's hand-picked dessert wines. The

Red Lion was voted 'The UK's Best Wine Pub' at The Publican Food & Drink Awards in 2010, and was runner up in the Northampton Food & Drink Awards 'Best Pub in Northampton' category - further proof that it offers a bona fide gastropub experience.
