New Corby pub is racing ahead

The new Hungry Horse pub and restaurant in Corby will be called the Chequered Flag.

The name was suggested by town resident Malcolm McIlreavy after Greene King invited people to come up with suggestions. Building work on the pub, off Causeway Road, is on schedule and it is set to open in October.

A spokesperson for Greene King said: “The number of responses we received was amazing and did not make the decision an easy one.

“We have decided to name the pub the Chequered Flag after Rockingham Motor Speedway, Europe’s fastest racing circuit and an asset to Corby.

“We would like to thank everyone who sent in their suggestions and we congratulate Malcolm on choosing the winning name.”
