Our Story

Rescued & reborn

A village community mourning the closure of its only pub and in need of a place to socialise, entertain and dine…

A small Northamptonshire pub company with the expertise to deliver and run such an establishment…

The Butchers Arms was brought back to life in 2017 after being rescued by a group of enthusiastic and dedicated locals. Now owned by a consortium of local villagers and investors, it has been completely refurbished, extended and remodelled and is now flourishing and serving the growing local neighbourhood and wider area.

Operated with the assistance of The Proper Pub Co, The Butchers Arms now boasts a modern rustic bar, a relaxed dining area, a stylish private dining room, a multi-purpose function room and a newly landscaped tiered garden.

It has become a hub for the local and wider community, situated in the centre of the village and close to both Towcester and Silverstone. When you visit The Butchers Arms, you’ll realise just how cherished it is by locals and visitors alike.

With a strong community ethos, The Butchers Arms is becoming ‘home’ to a range of local groups and clubs, proudly hosting the local skittles team and sponsoring the local cricket nets. We also host a raft of entertainment for all ages, from live bands to tea dances, themed cuisine nights to wine tastings, and quiz nights to coffee mornings, making sure there’s something for everyone.

Our drinks selection is at the heart of what we do, in particular our rotating real ales, where we like to champion the best of the local breweries. On offer also are craft beers, heritage ciders, a comprehensive wine list, and a vast selection of artisan gins for all tastes. In fact, we love gin so much that Friday evenings are… Gin Night! You’re able to enjoy food from our menus in the dining area, bar and garden. We have a full a la carte menu in the restaurant, and a ‘tapas style’ bar and garden menu offers an array of delicious mini dishes.

Our chefs change the menus seasonally to make the most of fresh, local and in-season produce, and you can even swap your excess fruit, veg and other produce that you grow at home for drinks vouchers in our ‘Pints 4 Produce’ scheme.

With two additional dining rooms, they make great spaces for private events or functions. The Meating Room is an upstairs sumptuous private dining room that seats up to 22 and is perfect for business meetings and larger seated groups. Alternatively, The Barn at the Butchers, is a wheelchair accessible function room seating 48 comfortably or more upon request. Buffet menus and al fresco options are available in either of the two rooms, as well as customised set menus.
