Really excellent find off the beaten track in Bedford. Burgers are amazing with the most incredible fries too. Airy restaurant, friendly, honest and unpretentious. Great service and friendly owner and staff. Will definitely be back, looking forward to bringing the children too. Thank you!

The Castle on Newnham Street is probably the closest hotel - there is also a Travelodge on Goldington Road which is often very cheap but a 5-10 minute taxi ride away

Yes they have a gorgeous veggie burger served with chips and salad, extras of beetroot and red pepper slaw, house slaw or jalapeño slaw and onion rings - that's what I have when I go! Mmm yum!
