Our first visit but it won't be our last. Lovely welcoming atmosphere which put us at ease immediately. Staff were friendly and helpful and gave excellent service - attentive without being intrusive. Our starters were excellent and our main (chateaubriand) was a perfect medium rare. Happily the portion size was just right to allow room for a tempting dessert. The... More

Just south of Bolnhurst is this perfect pub, now given over to excellent pub dining. Prices are reasonable, portions large, and food quality is very good. Most of the meals are simple in approach but very well presented and cooked. Desserts are more interesting than usual and the wine list has several good choices at moderate prices. The setting is...

Quality food, top ingredients used and amazingly well presented. Probably a little too expensive for a regular meal out but fabulous for a special occasion or treat.

My Partner took me here for my Birthday a few weeks ago. It is somewhere that has been recommended to us by friends and family on several occasions. We went on a Tuesday evening, expecting it to be quiet but the place was at least half full and the vibe was perfect for a week day evening, with a lovely... More

We had an excellent meal here and were made to feel very welcome. Portions were so generous that (sadly) we were unable to eat any puddings, although I did have enough room left for an absolutely sensational selection of French cheeses, which I can honestly say is the best cheese board that I have ever experienced in my life, and...

We have visited this restaurant many times over several years and the standard always remains very high. The staff are very attentive but don't smother you and you can tell that the owners run the place with precision. This time I ordered a steak and I have to say it was the best steak I have ever eaten. Our journey... More

We've dined here twice in the last week, returning quickly after our first visit, because we enjoyed the food, venue and service so much. On both occasions the food and service has been excellent. The chef trained with Raymond Blanc, a factor which partly inspired our first visit. There is an interesting menu, including daily specials on the blackboard that... More

fantastic menu which changes with the seasons. Top quality cooking and fantastic ingredients. the setting is also lovely in the middle of the countryside, this restaurant itself mixes modern design with traditional features. fantastic service and for me no other option if you want somewhere for a more special occasion in Bedford. It's worth the drive.

Tried to get a restaurant table at 10.30am and could only get one at 12.15pm which was too early, was told if we came along about 2pm we would probably get a table in the bar. Decided to take a chance and really pleased that we did. Arrived about 1.30pm for lunch on Bank Holiday Sunday and got a bar... More

Great place with lively atmosphere and mouth watering steaks ... The starters were amazing and even though it was slightly pricey compared to our normal haunts was well worth it - an occasion treat
