I went back to Bedford arms after I recently discovered that it was under new ownership. Having been before when the food was superb, but some issues front of house I thought I should give them another chance.
Well unfortunately there has been no improvement, in fact I am sorry to say that it is worse than before. The food now is bordering on acceptable, but not good value for money at all. The service is slow, non attentive and very disappointing. The staff were not smiling or showing interest in serving us at the table on what was a pretty quiet evening, the blonde girl behind the bar was more interested in using her mobile phone.
But the worst part of the visit was witnessing the elderly gentlemen, who was scruffy and untidy behind the bar. He poured a glass of red wine and very quickly consumed it behind the bar in a matter of seconds. He then poured a second and took it away with him around the corner into the other bar.I was so shocked to see such a thing. I will not be visiting the Bedford Arms Hotel ever again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bedford Arms Hotel is situated in the village of Chenies. The Village was known as Isenhampstead until the middle of the 13th century, when it became known as Chenies from the Cheyne family who occupied the Manor until the 16th century.The hotel building dates for the most part from 1842. It was converted from a house to a hotel in the 1930's and was a small eating house and bar rather than a hotel. In 1957 the restaurant was moved to it's current position. The hotel was frequently used by the Russel family who later acquired Woburn Abbey.There are eighteen bedrooms, ten of which are individually designed and decorated in a traditional style and eight new contemporary designed bedrooms.There are two four-poster suites one with a Jacuzzi, sixteen double bedrooms including one purpose built disabled bedroom.
