user reviews of Sir Pickering Phipps, Northampton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

There is such a wide variety of excellent restaurants on the Wellingborough Road - yet not a decent pub to be found!

This is just one of a very bad bunch of downmarket "lads" pubs that blight the Abington area. It was never built as a pub; but whoever was brought in to turn it into one must have suffered from terminal bad taste. Apart from being extraordinarily ugly - with oversize brass fittings and heavy, clunky, dark wooden extrusions, the colour scheme is gloomy and depressing.

The poor man it was named after, Sir Pickering Phipps, the brewing "king" of Northampton, would undoubtedly be spinning if he could see this monstrosity of a "faux" pub. It does, at least, manage to serve one beer (Greene King IPA - on my last visit). Although if you are naming your pub after the person who dominated Northamptonshire's brewing history, wouldn't it have been a nice gesture to, at least, have had the wit to provide one of the excellent local beers that are on offer?

It's basically a bog-standard sports pub, showing sky sports all day. Generic drinks selection. Very busy and uncomfortable at the weekend. Ok for a quiet drink and meet up in the week.

Too much of a lads football pub for my liking, but if you go there any other time of the day/week then it can be quite enjoyable. Not much in the way of new experiences for the beer connossiuer though...
