The Red Well

Raise the bar!

Why the Red Well? It claims to be the busiest and cheapest pub in the town. This is down to the policy of food and drink prices varying across all Wetherspoon pubs to provide the lowest prices, on average, in the local area. Coffee is only £1.20 and includes free refills! 

Ben Gardiner, the Manager, says that the pub hosts popular ‘nights’ like the Steak Club every Tuesday, the Chicken Club on Wednesday, the Curry Club on Thursday and Fish Friday; meals start at £4.99 and include a free drink. Put away that apron and frying pan and visit the pub on Sunday: brunch, which includes a drink, is served until 11 am.

We kid you not! 

In 2017, secret diners reviewed and ranked children’s food and service in 25 of the UK’s most popular restaurant chains. Wetherspoon was the highest-ranked pub company and, backing this trend, children are made very welcome at The Red Well.

Chosen charities are CLIC Sargent, a childhood cancer charity, and the Poppy Appeal. The pub has enthusiastically participated at town-wide events, like the WelliFest, to raise money for charity with fun activities like Welly-Wanging and more. Ben says that there are plans to host a charity Quiz night in the future.

Make your customer the hero of your story

The pub has many regulars, the oldest being a 95-year-old who pops in two to three times a week for a drink and a chat. Members of a French Club, the MS Society and a group of visually challenged people with their guide dogs are also regulars. Ben says, with a smile, once the members have settled in, the dogs enjoy a little wander around the pub.

The Red Well ranks top of all the Wetherspoon pubs in Northamptonshire on Tripadvisor. Ben says this fits in very well with his vision of the pub supporting the town and being a hub for local people to gather and socialise.
