Didn't mind this place - it's a proper locals pub in the middle of a residential street. Beer was drinkable if not great.

Further to my last review, the pub now serves real cider and perry from the Weston's stable.

Decent little boozer in a nice area of town. Good ale selection (despite the guests being Wells-brewed beers) and I had a cracking pint of the newly resurrected Younger's No.3. The pub has a very friendly landlord who - after she enquired what ciders were on - informed my wife that he's currently trying to get Charles Wells to change their cider policies and allow him to serve real cider and not Strongbow as so many people ask for it. Good to see a landlord trying to give the customer what they want despite being hamstrung by the brewers that he works for.

All-in-all, we really enjoyed our break from the Welly for the night and went here and the Cricketers and enjoyed both of them immensely. Recommended.

Backstreet pub in a more upmarket area of Bedford than most. Candles on the tables create a bit of romantic atmosphere. So it may be popular with couples. Beers were all from the Wells & Youngs range - Eagle IPA, Waggledance, Directors & London Gold. Original frosted windows and bare boards lend a traditional look and this is a pub that has been refurbished without losing too much character. Modern artwork is for sale on the walls.

first visit, i never seem to wander quite this far out of the town centre, initial impressions are good, smart, tidy, friendly service. A Wells tied pub with guest beers, the guest beer on this occasion being "Courage Best" which of course is Wells ! so more a friend than a guest then.... Ales are served through a swan neck/sparkler thus ensuring a flat pint and virually unavoidable short measure - sadly a trait of many Wells houses.
