When I ordered a drink the member of staff that was serving me was too busy talking to someone else and consequently got the order wrong not once but twice I find that not only bad manners but also unprofessional that aside the quality of the drink was very good the food menu is quite limited so I passed on...

I popped into Bedfords recently to meet with some friends who work in the area. I was first to arrive so pub was quiet with cool background music playing. Had a great coffee while I waited for my friends to join me. When they did we all ordered different meals (two for one on Wednesday!!!) which came out at the... More

I got the chicken and mushroom pie and my boyfriend got the lasagne from the 2 meals for £8 deal, normally the food is decent but it was absolutely horrible today. My pie was rock hard and my boyfriends lasagne was jelly and very cold. When asked to return it and heat it up the staff were very accommodating. The... More

Cheap for a steady . Mainly hits off when students are in town . Some nice ones kicking about , but also some undesirables- hence I probably won't rush back .

Large pub with the familiar family food pub set up. Nothing to distinguish it from any of the others. Three cask pumps, but only two beers on offer on my visit. Cheap food all day, with attention paid to veggies. Music not too loud. Several TV screens focussed on sport. Bog standard place. You've been here before many times, all... More

A bit tacky with a lack of Real Ales, place could do with a good clean. Ok for a quick pint nothing else.

Been visiting the pub for about a year as it's a cheap local and the food has always been average. Recently they've changed the menu and it's improved so much. It's always been a good deal but now it feels like we're getting quality for our money. They're great hosts of sports games, and we usually pop down for the... More

As far as bars go its okay doesn't really have anything to separate it from the many choices within that area, its lacking a flare or gimmick to draw you. I am by no means saying this is one to avoid as it really isn't if your just looking for a simple night out with the possible use of a... More
