“Second Visit. Different expereince still good”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Food still very good although like last time we felt the desserts were not the chefs strength.
Very good service.
Fresh thistles on the tabel this time, but it still lacks atmosphere!
Good to see that there are some nicer galsses too but the wine glasses are pub glasses ! Fine, but of you are paying the price you pay for the whole experience and that includes good glasses, tableware, service and decor etc. can nor fault the food again

“Good food, but felt a bit pricey”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I ate here with my wife about two weeks ago. I thought most of the food was done very well. Some really imaginative dishes and combinations. I'm not wholly convinced it warranted the price of each course, but it was good stuff.

However, the restaurant itself could do with a complete redecoration inside and out, everything feels a bit run down, I don't know what the building was used for before they opened but I guess they haven't done much to it.

That might not be important to some people but the chef clearly feels the presentation of the food on the plates is important, so why isn't the presentation of the restaurant also important?

“Fantastic tasting menu”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We had read the reviews posted here about how good this restaurant was so we thought ŵe would see for ourselves last night. We are lucky enough to have eaten in some fantastic places in London and so judge anything new on our experiences so far. The Croft Kitchen did not disappoint at all, the relaxed atmosphere and very attentive staff were perfect. We opted for their 8 course tasting menu which was incredible and left us extremely full. The presentation and quality of the food as well as the obvious experience of the chef with all the techniques and flavours were amazing. We will definitely return in the near future. Thank You.

“Very Special”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

It's best not to judge a book by its cover and it's best not to judge a restaurant by its location. Situated in the back streets of Biggleswade is the Croft Kitchen, a family ( 2 brothers) run establishment which exudes quality. A small seasonal menu is always a good indication of quality and the little extra touches will make this a meal to remember. The food is superb with service to match. It is not the cheapest meal you will ever have but as with most things in life you get what you pay for. The modest wine list offers some well chosen wines to compliment your food, again not the cheapest but for a special occasion well worth the cost. Overall a quality dining experience with attentive staff and a talented professional chef.

“A little gem tucked away in Biggleswade”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

After hearing rave reviews about The Croft Kitchen my wife and I finally managed to get hold of a booking and with some friends enjoyed an absolutely fabulous evening. Tucked away in not the most glamorous areas of Biggleswade (opposite Aldi and near the train station), the minute you walk through the door you can feel the ambiance and charm of the place.
The restaurant caters for just 22 sittings at a time which gives it an exclusive feel. The food was outstanding and we were treated to tasters between the meal. A quite outstanding jewel in Bedfordshire culinary crown and a must for special or romantic occasions
