Good pub with good quiz nights - some for charity. The beers are nicely looked after. The landlord is a very friendly guy who goes out of his way to see that you're ok. The rest of the staff are alright, but need to look around them a bit more and see if anyone needs serving instead of talking amongst themselves. The young lad behind the bar (Aaron, I think his name was) is an absolute disgrace to the hospitality industry and needs to learn a hell of a lot about customer service. Useless - get rid! Shame, as he marred what was a very nice night out at the Tuesday quiz.

Wish I had read the previous comments and avoided the lamb shank. Obviously the plonk it on school of food preparation. The Apple Crumble dessert was barely cooked and horrible. Award winning you cannot be serious!

The last and busiest of Bedford pubs we tried yesterday. It has quite a large car park, that was completely full. Seemingly, most people were there for a Sunday evening quiz, which certainly started off quite difficult - what year did Pete Sampras first win the Wimbledon title? Food looked quite ordinary. Beers were Wells Eagle IPA & Bombardier & an unimaginative Courage Best (brewed in Bedford don't you know) as a guest. The interior is large and bright. It clearly appeals to a wide range of society, from students to 30-50 somethings.

We have been to the White Horse twice, the first time we had lamb shank. It was dreadfull! Pre-cooked and frozen portions served with peas and potatoes in almost half an inch of gravy.
A year later we tried them again and had the special, fish and chips. Again, cheap frozen fillets on the small size and possibly pre-cooked frozen tastless but chunky chips. Would I go again ? No.

I really rate this pub. Friendly landlord & staff who seem to do loads for charity. Some of the best beer in Bedford! No guest ale on last time I was here but that's a small thing really.

It may be a bit too modern inside for some, but there are plenty of olde-worlde pubs around with so-so beer. Give me a good pint at the White Horse anytime.
