This used to be a great little pub back in the day, but I don't like what it's become now. My wife and I stood in the front bar waiting to be served the other day and were patently ignored by the staff. They had even glanced over and made eye contact when serving someone else. We just looked at each other and walked out. Truly appalling customer service.

Nice old building reminiscent of a village pub in the centre of Bedford. The interior seems to have lost much of its character. Most punters were drinking on the rear patio, whilst there is also a small outdoor drinking area at the front. This is a Greene King pub - IPA and Abbot were available, plus Black Sheep Golden Sheep as a guest. Westgate Sun Dance and Roosters Yankee were listed on a blackboard. But there was no sign of them. The steaks served on 'volcanic' plates looked nice. Similar to many other Bedford pubs, there are some impressive hanging baskets outside. In fact, these were identical to the Bedford Arms - somebody is doing a roaring trade!

Staff are nice enough; need to remember whos got what place in the q though. music's ok, bit rugby and posh school crowd; but at least you wont need to be on penicillin in the morning if youve pulled.
