Best Pub in Northampton

I've been going to the King Billy for many years now and in my opinion it's the best in town.
Everyone is welcome. You don't have to be a biker or a metal head to fit in. There's never any trouble like the other pubs in town so no bouncers are necessary.
You wear what you like, including trainers if that's your thing because the management understand that it's not how you dress but how you behave that matters.
There are always at least 6 real ales on pump and everything else you could wish for. When I was hankering after chilli sambuka the landlady actually ordered a bottle in for me!!
I've walked in on a sweltering summer afternoon with the dog and ordered and drink only to be presented with my drink and a bowl of water for the mutt!
The food is really nice and great value for money. When my daughter and I mistimed our arrival on xmas day last year, we were starving from the hour long walk. It was 20 mins before closing time and food had finished, yet the barmaid still went and sorted us some sandwhiches!!
The Billy is renowned for it's live bands, 4 nights per week!! The bands are awesome ranging from soft rock n pop through to death metal, I've even heard country tunes performed in there.
There are pub quizzes and Karaoke nights during the week too! The Billy isn't a pompous, highly furnished, mirrored club, it's a traditional down to earth pub run by friendly staff :-)

King Billy!

I love the billy! It's the only place in town where u can go without being hastled by drunk girls wearing hardly any clothes, plastered in makeup and staggering in massive heels. It's not the flashiest inside but the staff are friendly and the musics banging. I'd go there any day over some flash wine bar. Long may the king live. Didn't know they did food tho! X
