Stunning Lobster Dish

We've visited here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. Charming atmosphere with friendly staff. The menu changes regularly but this is not always reflected on line so a visit to see what delights are on offer is a must.

We have dined her a couple of times before. As I right this review I still am left feeling a little disappointed by out visit. We were shown to our table and waited near on 25 mins for a lady/waitress to pay us any attention. I sat at the table with no drink, though there was a few people with... More

I have been here a couple of times before and it has been consistently good. I think the menu could be a bit limited but there are specials. I thoroughly enjoyed sea bass on this visit. However, what made the evening was the really lovely, friendly service. We will definitely be back.

Settled in the little village on North Bedfordshire is this lovely friendly pub come restaurant. Great selection of wines and beers but also very interesting kitchen. The chef cooks with style and flare and nothing seems to phase the chef. The country them evenings are great and the last 2, French and Spanish, were excellent and served by charming staff... More

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
