In July 2011, the bar was refurbished and transformed from a grotty, run-down public house to a premier, traditional alehouse. We are now proud to serve eight cask ales and ciders on the pumps along with ten keg lines, including premium lagers, ciders and Guinness (especially for our Rugby supporters)!
Cask Ale Club has also returned in September 2021 - all cask ales/ciders £3.50 per pint Monday - Wednesday Midday to 11 pm.
Let’s not forget the superb selection of spirits and wines available to our customers. Our premium gin selection features some of the most popular and delicious gins on the market, and they are all paired perfectly with tonics from Fever-Tree. A perfect compliment to our cask ales is our offering of single-malt Scotch whiskies. We have four of the very best available!
Here at The Bedford, we pride ourselves on our friendly and accommodating staff. We have striven to attain a calm environment to ensure you can enjoy your drinks and hopefully feel comfortable and relaxed at all times. We’re also dog-friendly, so please bring in your furry friends! There are always treats and water!
Ever since July 2011, we have excelled at putting on an unrivalled event schedule at the pub. With live music every Saturday evening and ad-hoc music festivals, The Bedford is recognised as one of the town’s best venues for live entertainment. Go to our Music & Events page for details of our upcoming shows.
In August 2018, we decided to take the plunge and have Sky Sports & BT Sport installed. Showing seven days a week on our brand new 65inch 4k UHD TVs, you can watch everything from football to cricket and tennis to rugby! Check out the future games here. In addition to the TVs, we have installed a superb Sonos sound system to experience your favourite sport with the best pictures and the best sound in town!
If poker is your ‘thing’, then we have competitive poker league nights every Tuesday evening, where you can play to Vegas! We will keep getting better, and we hope you enjoy your experience at our small but cosy little bar. Remember, if you have any suggestions or comments, we are always happy to hear from you.
The Vale Vault cocktail bar has re-opened, and we are now taking bookings for Friday and Saturday evenings. Looking at hosting a private event? Then why not inquire today as the Vault is available for private hire for up to 40 people parties.
