Had dinner and drinks here with some colleagues whilst staying at local hotel. Food is cheap and cheerful. However they had to come and tell us they had no steaks or coleslaw along with some starters. We weren't offered salads in replacement of some items nothing. Service was slow, really really slow. Staff dropped food on table from plate and... More

Its a bit like an airport lounge but it has cheap drink and cheap food. Food not that bad for the price. Could do with more lounge seating. You get the all day drinkers in here not a place to go for a nice romantice drink lol but a good meeting place for a crowd.

Cheap and cheerful it is but I prefer to use the term value for money. Bright and airy - echoes of an airport departure lounge. Staff always pleasant and accommodating. Bad pint sir? Take it back to the bar to be exchanged no problem. Good selection of beers butt need Deuchars on more often. Excellent wine choice. Rock bottom prices.... More

We were at a family party and stopped off here for dinner beforehand. There were 8 of us ordering separately. The staff were run off their feet, more staff wouldn't go a miss!

Had a lovely time whilst introducing my friend and his new wife who've just moved in to Corby. The food was quick and even though they got the order wrong they were that fast in bringing the right one out it was a smooth rectification. Didn't complain about it because there was no need...'Nae bother'. Still give 5 Stars, quick... More

Service level at the bar is the worst I have ever experienced! There are 3 staff and currently 6 at the bar. I am writing this whilst waiting to be served ( 10 mins). The staff are rude and ignorant. Avoid like the plague

Restaurant was busy but managed to find a table. Had to order from the bar and in the meantime someone else had taken the table. Had a long wait for food to be cooked and then both main course and hot dessert arrived at the same time, despite me advising otherwise. Needless to say hot dessert was not hot when... More

Description
It was Samuel Lloyd who began the transformation of Corby, from a sleepy village in Rockingham Forest into a modern, industrial town. Stewart & Lloyds (the successor to Lloyds Ironstone Company) built many of the houses, as well as the school and sports ground in the vicinity of the Wetherspoon pub.The original village of Corby gets its name from 'Kori', the leader of the Danish invaders who settled in a Rockingham Forest clearing. Corby remained a village until the arrival of Samuel Lloyd, in the 1880s, when the new ironstone industry developed to dominate life in Corby, until the closure of the iron and steelworks in 1980.This wetherspoon, opened in July 2008, is completely new and is a gas-free site, it has an extrodinary design to traditional pubs to mark both its individuality, and to tie in with the concept of glass use in the building of some of corbys' landmark sites (cube/swimming pool)
