A shabby, run-down depressing pub
This pub in Bailiff Street Northampton is a delapidated, sad, shabby place with nothing to recommend it. The brewery that owns it can't even be bothered to repair the name sign on the wall which has been losing more and more letters year after year. It is supposed to say the GARIBALDI. Instead it just says the G R IB L. This is an eyesore. We call it the Gribble! The whole place needs to be spruced up, redecorated and cheered up. I don't mean it needs to be modernized. It hate modern pubs. But this one needs to be smartened up in a way that is in keeping with its traditional building. The corner site is quite nice and you'd think that someone would do something to it, instead of just letting it rot.
