We stayed here on 22/1 and have to say Dan who greeted us was exceptionally nice, helpful and funny. Such a nice guy and really made us feel welcome. We got back late from seeing friends and Daniel was just as friendly and welcoming when we got a night cap. Could not praise him enough. Unfortunately (and one of the... More

After reading his scathing review below I am not sure what planet Timothy H from Bedford is from, but wherever it is they certainly have a different outlook on things than most people. It's a pub dude, not the Ritz, get your expectations sorted before you post your only review to date. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this pub/restaurant/hotel... More

I'd recommend this "proper old school Pub" Hotel/Pub To anyone! They do great food too, the staff are great and go out of their way to help and the owner Bev is nice and helpful too! Nothing swamy too much bother for any of them! Rooms are clean/warm and the shower in my room was nice and hot and decent... More

What a shame. This village pub could be so good but the attitude of the management and some of the staff to customers is disgraceful. Customer service is obviously not on the training for this establishment. If you want to be abused visit the Queens Head.

Booked last minute for 4 people had a table in the bar area. Man behind the bar (very pleasant) served our drinks and brought them to the table. Food was very good. I like an egg with my fish and chips (I know strange)but nothing no problem. What can I say first time there we will be back.

Booked in for a night with another couple, to save an early morning drive in the morning. Was the best decision we could have made. Rooms are comfortable all with en suite, restaurant was awesome both for dinner and breakfast, staff were all very friendly. What more can you ask for. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B, in fact we're... More

I took some business contacts for lunch. Three soft drinks, one pint, three sandwiches, chips and a pasta dish All came to around £30. The Landlady was welcoming and helpful, the food very enjoyable and there is now free WiFi. Recommended.

The Hotel is easy to find and very close to Bedford Aerodrome, where my son was attending a test drive with Ginetta's. The reception was friendly and the rooms clean and tidy. Perfect for the circuit. Free parking and Wi-fi.
