“Oh Dear”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is a lovely big pub which we had a meeting of old friends last week. A favourite haunt especially for locals during the mornings for coffee. But oh dear the current batch of staff and food quality is very short of acceptable. They must have been on the charm removal course as they do not like the public or at least give that impression. They are certainly well equipped to bemoan their lot with the regulars whilst ignoring customers waiting.

My food was dreadful. Chicken Piri Piri. A lump of chicken, tepid chips a bowl of coleslaw inedible and a bowl of piri piri sauce. Complain, well the object behind the bar commiserated with me,"I know what it's like mate". No answer to that.

This centre of community life in Bedford has had more managers than most football clubs and deserves a so much better review as it should be so much better and it wouldn't take much.
