Our umpteenth visit to this lovely restaurant on the top of the hill, beside the church, overlooking the countryside of north Bedfordshire. The food is always interesting, original and delicious. Today, I could not resist once again having the mammoth fish stew, slightly spicy, with olives, prawns, mussels and vegetables - far more than I could possibly eat, but I... More

We had lunch here last Sunday, as part of a visit to Bedford. The restaurant itself is really nice, and so was the food. Sensible sized portions, well presented, and the size allowed for three courses. Service was good too - all staff were welcoming and polite.

Haven't been here for a few years but went for a family birthday on a Monday evening. As well as the A La Carte menu there was a specials deal with one course for £12, 2 for £15 or three for £19. The food was excellent and the service friendly and we were all very pleased with

My wife and I stopped here for lunch whilst in the area having read a few reviews. We were not disappointed as the service, staff and food were all above our expectations. This is definitely on our most visit again list to try the evening menu. The only reason I rated this as a four is because the dining room... More

A bit off the beaten track, but good car parking and the decor inside is clean, relaxing and tasteful. The staff greet you warmly and with a smile and you are served quickly. The menu and specials were good although my husband loves the pork here and it wasn't on the menu last night :( but the specials was brimming... More

Had a Xmas meal here and cannot fault the place! The staff are great and the food Devine! We have eaten here a few times and each time it was wonderful. The staff are polite and courteous and nothing is too much trouble (even when they have a very impatient young child pestering them constantly!). The decor is clean and... More

Been here a few times normally with a group of friends. Nothing real to fault, for what is a gastropub. Good atmosphere and service. The food is fine, but I would not go way out of my way for it .

This is not the first time we have eaten at this establishment, but I believe that it was the best meal that we had there. There were six of us in our party and all of us enjoyed the meal, the surroundings and felt that we had received great service. My son who is usually a fussy eater couldnt fault... More

All I can say the food we had was exquisite. My girlfriend had the burger which I was somewhat surprised as she never normally eats burgers. However she said it was to die for as it just wasn't your normal burger. I had the Catalan fish stew which was awesome and the mussels in it were such good quality I... More
