Guide to Northampton from one who lives there

Food Wise in the town Centre, if you're looking for something really good your options are:

American BBQ - The Smoke Pit: https://goo.gl/maps/kjuWqo8JAwApQRno9
Indian - Aladdins (Bring your own beer): https://goo.gl/maps/gszEkrCopgs1rQZM6
Turkish - Pamukkale: https://goo.gl/maps/HaXcKwYTuRqHPYSq5
Breakfast - Dreams Coffee Lounge: https://goo.gl/maps/wx1vGPUCfvi9BM1G9
NB: St Giles street is full of nice boutique cafes and shops if that's your thing.

If you're willing to go a bit further out:
Japanese - Ginza: https://goo.gl/maps/owdRCohcfVQskseu8
Steaks - Hops and Chops: https://goo.gl/maps/q8YqPJzM7vBz3ME17

Drinking it depends what you're looking for.

If you're into your craft ales and/or real ales, check out the following:

Albion Bar at the Phipps Brewery, which has old bar games like Skittles and great local beer: https://goo.gl/maps/QdjnH2DTmZG1RJRc9
Wig & Pen: https://goo.gl/maps/ciD66WZW6EqUtFPFA
St Giles Ale House micropub: https://goo.gl/maps/hGZv8aLobVpsQxme8
Maule Collective: https://goo.gl/maps/8GihLeGdjzcbzPTS8
Lamplighter: https://goo.gl/maps/7MFwwxfr7bSb3BjM6
Olde England: https://goo.gl/maps/4vSFi4vMxm7Ph6uR8

And if you're desperate for a good coffee:

Yellow Bourbon Coffee Roasters - https://goo.gl/maps/1Zq5c8qhEqNQuWPeA

People should already be familiar with the Thomas Becket, The St James WMC and the Sevens from previous visits. There's a lot of talk about how the high street in Northampton is dying - and it is, but there's plenty just a few streets along so don't believe the hype.
