Went last night to Harpurs and had a warm welcome by bar staff (Zoe) she is amazing and the owner made himself know to us. Shown to our table and ordered drinks, which arrived immediately, placed our food order. I had the slow cooked lamb 30 minutes required and have to inform them.Hubby had the pork lion chop and our friends had risotto and the burger. All the food was fabulous and the waitress looked after us throughout checking that everything was ok. Wonderful night spent with friend and management. Will definately go again and again and recommend to others.

We had no idea where to go for a meal on our visit to Bedford and were advised by a friendly local policeman to have a look at Harpurs and given directions. The 4 of us enjoyed the 2 course lunch including a drink. 3 of our party had the steak and 1 had the chicken both meals were very tasty. 2 of us chose the starter, soup and the other 2 chose the sweet, chocolate pudding & custard all very nice and served by Zoe who was both helpful and very funny, joking with us and making us feel at ease.

Really what more can you ask for? They have recently refurbished the restaurant and have a more sectioned off area for pre-meal drinks/nibbles. The staff are always friendly and the food is always to a very good standard.
My boyfriend and I have been here several times as people who live very locally and we have found that it's either dead inside or absolutely packed... we can't seem to see a correlation between the reasons for this. Obviously when it's quieter there is quicker service and you can hear yourself; other wise it's naturally louder and busier. This can't be helped and it doesn't put us off coming back here time and time again.
