Welcome to The Bedford, the heart and soul of Royal Tunbridge Wells! We're thrilled to be the original, traditional alehouse that embraces our customers, cherishes our staff, and celebrates the vibrant spirit of this town we call home.


Prepare yourself for a remarkable drink experience as we proudly serve seven cask ales and ciders on our pumps, along with a selection of eleven keg lines that include premium lagers, ciders, and, of course, Guinness (a special treat for our Rugby enthusiasts)!


But that's not all! Our bar is a treasure trove of delightful spirits and wines. Indulge in the finest gins, carefully curated from the most popular and delicious varieties on the market. Paired impeccably with tonics from Fever-Tree, each sip is a moment of pure pleasure.


At The Bedford, we value creating a welcoming atmosphere for our cherished guests. Our friendly and attentive staff have dedicated themselves to providing a relaxed environment, ensuring your visit is comfortable and content. And guess what? We're even dog-friendly! Feel free to bring your furry companions, who will be welcomed with treats and refreshing water.


Join us every Friday evening from 8:30 p.m. for enchanting live music performances featuring talented local bands and artists. Best of all, there's no entry fee because we believe everyone should enjoy music. So be sure to check our upcoming events, so you don't miss out on the unforgettable melodies that grace our stage.
