We were changed from room only to b&b on the first morning which was great as the breakfast was really good. had the full english on the first day and the pancakes on the second. Both were excellent. The staff were very good and... More

Went for my birthday, expected so much more, the food was almost inedible and very salty. The staff were friendly though at the table the waitress spoke so quickly could barely understand what she was explaining, very rushed. The pub itself is very well decorated. Wouldn't go back here in a hurry for food, perhaps best for drinks only.

Booked for one night on our way to Palmer Sport. Asked for quiet rooms overlooking the River Ouse and higher up the building which should be quieter, as suggested in an Alistair Sawday guide. We were given two rooms on the side overlooking a brick wall of an adjoining building four feet away. Did not immediately complain as only there... More

I've left reasonably negative reviews about the food at the embankment before and had previously thought that it benefitted enough from its location to have to try too hard at the food. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to eat there twice recently and to have had much improved dishes. I did enquire if there was a reorganisation of the kitchen... More

We stayed at the hotel on Saturday night whilst visiting our son. The room was clean and comfortable and had great views of the river. The bar was very lively and staff were friendly. Unfortunately there was a very noisy group of people sitting outside when we went to bed. They remained sitting there for a long tine after the... More

Made my booking through booking.com so got a slight deal which included breakfast. I read a few reviews and noted that the rooms with a river view were the one's to request. On doing so I was told my booking did not allow one of these rooms, silly me!! of course they cost more. On arrival we got a room... More

A great place for a family meal. Good menu, something for all tastes and reasonably priced. Service is excellent, attentive without being over the top. Lovely setting on banks of the river. Watching the rowers with a glass of Chardonnay is very relaxing. Always worth a visit if you're in Bedford.

Great location and welcome. We had a fantastic night in the bar and the food was great, finished off by drinks overlooking the river. Room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.
