This place has lovely friendly, welcoming staff. Booked a table for 8 and everyone loved their meals. Soup was delicious - can't beat a home made soup! The Salmon and Prawn starter was divine as was the goat cheese. The dinner - we all had turkey - it had all the trimmings you could wish for and was served fresh... More

Lots of choice and house specials. Servers were knowledgeable and friendly. All the food arrived at the same time all was hot and very tasty. The restaurant had... More

We have been regular customers for over 7 years & it has always been our preferred pub for meals, both lunchtime & evenings.

After some time in the doldrums under different management, Fred and Caroline have returned and the old place is coming back together, though we haven't been there for a while until recently. Very friendly and keepers of exceptional beer, we are pleased to see them again. The food is also as we remember, so you can safely return, as we... More

We used to love visiting the Bedford Arms but when Fred retired it so changed and was such a disappointment. Therefore it was so good to hear Fred back on the phone taking bookings and for all those who remember how good it was you need to rush back before word gets around and you find it's fully booked.....as it...

Had a lovely evening at the Bedford Arms with friends. Great atmosphere and tasty freshly cooked food at a reasonable price. The staff and host were very friendly and 5 stars truly merited.

Back to its old self. We have been back twice since the old landlord has been back. Service is great and food is great. The ideal place for good pub grub at a very good price. We will be going back.

Had the Sunday roast- you need to book. Selection of accompaniments with your meat. However not much meat unless you pay extra to make it a bigger meal, like supersizing it. But considering that other places are cheaper and give you more meat than a large slice. After all, veg sides are inexpensive, so the plate cost is not that... More
