My partner and I only stayed for one night but we really enjoyed it here. The staff were friendly and informative, the evening meal was excellent and the bar although small was well stocked. The breakfast was ok, nothing special. However we would go back.

Having been let down by another Tavistock restaurant my husband and I dashed to the Bedford. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed a delicious meal from the brasserie menu. It must be fate that we celebrated our 33rd anniversary in the same place as our wedding reception.
