A friendly, traditional sports and social club closely allied to Long Buckby AFC, (The "Bucks") whose name adorns the front entrance, it is referred to by most in the village as "the Soccer". The club has been selling consistently good real ales for several years now. It has recently had a major cellar refit and brand new cellar cooling equipment has been installed. One or more beers from Dow Bridge are permanent fixtures, and Phipps NBC ales are often regularly seen here. As may be gleaned from the title of the club, it is heavily sports oriented and most major sporting events are shown on big screen TV's. Home football matches (alternate Saturdays) can see the bar very busy. It has a fiercely competitive skittles team, plus pool and darts feature in the front of the main bar. There is a separate function room that may be hired out for events and for which catering can be arranged. There is a quiz night on Thursdays. Membership is £5 per annum but CAMRA members will be admitted on production of a valid membership card.
