When we arrived all the food was still covered which we undid ourselves, no hostess to be seen anywhere. I was told on phone it would be more of a salad and meat platter, more like a meal. Unfortunately it wasn't, we had scotch eggs sausage rolls little sausages. A small bowl of salad. Not much meat and it was... More

Gosh, this has to be one of the worst places I have ever eaten in. Ordered food which was priced similarly to a good gastro pub and therefore grossly overpriced for what it was. The food arrived about 5 mins after we ordered. Like Jellybaby2303, I took note of this and as I suspected, it was just awful. It tasted... More

I have been going here for years. Recently changed landlords and still a great place. The new landlord and all his staff are friendly and welcoming happy staff. I'm comfortable enough to pop in here on my own and have a chat with the friendly staff. Some pubs you go in they don't talk to you but this place is... More

Kitchen closed with no notice twice recently. Poor beer choice, Wells or Youngs only, no guest ales. Even Wells own beers not available all the time. Coffee not available in evenings. Nobody cares. Managers here are taking their money and laughing. Just stay away until someone bothers to sort it out.

This pub has lots of potential. Reasonable beer, pleasant staff and reasonable food. However for some unfathomable reason Charles Wells has decided to pump second rate, poor quality piped music in to a number of their pubs including this one. If you want to learn ten songs off by heart from non original singers then this is the place for... More

Does everything you need from a local pub. Came with the family to meet some friends here. We all had the Sunday roast. It came out in good time, plenty of veg, and roast potatoes were fantastic. Food, drinks and service were great, when I'm back in Bedford, I will definitely visit again.
