Staff at the Princess Alexandra pub in Northampton say they have been overwhelmed by the support of customers after a small fire in the kitchen.

Firefighters were called out to the Princess Alexandra pub in Alexandra Road last Friday after smoke was seen billowing out of the building. However, the fire was quickly extinguished and the pub was back in business later on the same day.

General manager Craig Johnson, said: “Although it wasn’t a serious incident the fire service were called and provided an outstanding service, ensuring that we were back to business within a few hours, we can’t thank them enough.”

The pub has also been making some humorous posts on social media promoting their ‘fiery’ range of beers and their ‘toasty’ log burner.
