It was with some trepidation I booked the Overstone Arms as i hadn't been there for about 20 years and an ex wife later :-) I usually book a pub in Rushton for my family christmas meal (up to 28 people) however in their wisdom they had decided not to do Christmas dinners until later in December. However as every... More

We dropped in on the off - chance of a meal. The pub was quiet and clean. The menu was good and the prices reasonable. I can recommend the gorgeous Sea Bream. We'll be back

We decided to try here for a Sunday carvery as hadn't been since it changed hands. Very good start we thought as shown to our table & told about the vegetables cooked fresh & brought to the table while you visit the carvery for your meat. Turkey, pork & beef, choose one, two or all, plus Yorkshire pudding, stuffing &... More

Met with old friends for a catch up meal at the Overstone Arms. We were very pleased to have a round table because this always helps good conversation. The staff were very attentive, the food very enjoyable and the ambience pleasant. I last came here before the current owners took over. Always thought it was 'alright' but nothing to rave... More

Tried the car very here as I'd booked a party of 24 family for a Christmas meal. I needn't have worried as it was absolutely fabulous. Hot plates, lovely surroundings, quality produce and great service. Veg served fresh plus a jug of gravy. Excellent at catering for special diets as all food prepared from fresh just like your mums Sunday... More

It was 1.30 before we arrived on a Saturday lunchtime, but fortunately not too late for food. There were only a few people there so ate in the bar rather than restaurant. The homemade burger and chips were really tasty and filling, would definitely recommend it. Will definitely visit again, possibly in the evening next time.

lovely relaxed time, good food and warm surroundings on a cold day. only negative was how quiet it was, a little background music - quietly - would have made a difference

A lovely little pub in the village of Pytchley. We chose this pub as its a mile or so from A14 and therefore a good mid-point to meet friends. There's lot of good points. We went on Sunday and the carvery was excellent. There was a choice of meat - pork, beef (perfectly cooked) and turkey. Servings were generous. Vegetables... More

Hi, Thank you for your review and the constructive criticism, I can assure you we do listen to people like yourself who offer their opinions correctly. The waiting staff I can assure you are not normally as vague as you experienced (not sure what happened on the day you visited us), we have seen issues with our menu on Sundays... More

A lovely building with a warm welcome that is let down by the interior. The dining room is lacking In atmosphere and the waiting staff are casual and obviously not well trained. The food was fine, although slightly pretentious. The beer was well kept and the bar was cosy and welcoming. Would return for a drink, not for food.

We were staying in Kettering for a few nights so instead of eating in the hotel we decided to try some village eateries. We arrived at the Overstone Arms with a friendly greeting from the owner. We were offered either outside or the restaurant to eat we went for the restaurant but others had gone for outside so the restaurant... More
