Corby’s food scene will take you all around the world with excellent curry houses, Mediterranean restaurants, authentic Portuguese eateries and some excellent Polish food. Plus, if you’re feeling extra fearless, we’ve thrown in a place which serves a 7,500-calorie breakfast challenge, that will hopefully leave you feeling victorious (if a little full)!
Places to eat in Corby
For delightful food in a welcoming setting, make your way to the White Hart. It’s a gastropub on the High Street, just around the corner from Corby Station. It’s nothing overly fancy, but they serve some delicious burgers and the hand-cut, homemade chips are excellent.
If you’re craving a curry, try the Royal Tandoori on Rockingham Road. It’s Northamptonshire’s oldest curry house and was founded way back in the 1970s. No restaurant survives that long without great food and stellar service.
Another excellent Indian restaurant is Voujon. It doesn’t have quite the same credentials as Royal Tandoori, but it boasts a legion of loyal locals who’ll swear by its excellent selection of curries. Everything is made fresh and the service is first-class, too.
Olive is arguably our favourite place to eat in Corby. It’s a modern and stylish restaurant with a Mediterranean-themed menu that’s delicious, well-portioned and reasonably priced. You’ll find it opposite the Corby Cube, which is one of the top venues for entertainment in Corby.
Alternatively, you can make your way further along George Street to La Fonte. It’s a bistro-style grill restaurant with a comprehensive menu including great pasta, risotto and mixed grill options.
Take your taste buds on a trip to A Tasca, Corby’s authentic Portuguese restaurant on Occupation Road. The piri-piri chicken is absolutely banging, the monkfish is magisterial and the sardine starter is our favourite. Judged purely on flavour, A Tasca is the best restaurant in Corby.
Last but by no means least, Gospoda U Braci is an authentic Polish restaurant literally next door to A Tasca. If you’ve never tried proper Polish food you simply need to visit this no-frills restaurant as it’s absolutely delicious. Seating is limited, so we recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment.
The Tea Jenny
If you’re after daytime eating options, you can’t go wrong with the Good Bean Cafe on the High Street. It’s a lovely independent cafe with the best breakfasts in town. The cafe itself is immaculately clean and pleasantly airy, and the service is nice and friendly too.
Another top choice on the High Street is The Tea Jenny. It’s a cosy and traditional tea room with some of the nicest homemade cakes in the area. Combined with a fine selection of loose-leaf teas, it’s an easy place to pass an hour or so.
This last one’s not for the faint-hearted. The Hungry Hossee is a greasy spoon hidden in the residential streets of Corby that’s home to an enormous breakfast challenge. If you fancy yourself for having an appetite, take on ‘The Big One.’ It weighs three kilograms, contains 7,500 calories and is reputedly one of the world’s richest full English breakfasts.
