We ate in the bar at the Bedford hotel on a couple of occasions and enjoyed the food. It does get busy in the evenings so I would recommend booking earlier in the day or eating early. There is a restaurant but I think that's reserved for guests who are staying there. There is a good and varied menu. I had the tikka masala which is served with rice and poppadoms but no naan bread sadly. For some reason the tikka comes with 2 prawns on top. Apart from that it was lovely, more spicy and less creamy than you usually get. On a Wednesday evening they do a curry special which is about £10 and includes your curry, naan, poppadoms, rice and a vegetable curry I think. My daughter ordered the lasagne which is a very large, mansize portion in a dish but you don't get any vegetables or salad with it, just the lasagne. I think it would be better to reduce the size of the lasagne and serve it with veg or salad. Another evening I had the spinach risotto which was nice and better than it sounds. The fish meals all looked nice too. There is a little veranda at the side of the hotel which was lovely to sit on with a glass of wine while you waited for a table. We were too full for dessert but they looked nice.
