Way back in July 2011 the bar was refurbished and transformed from a grotty, run-down public house to a premier, traditional alehouse. Starting off with eight cask ales and six keg beers, we are now proud to serve ten cask ales and ciders on the pumps along with eight keg beers and craft ales. We also run a Cask Ale Club from Monday to Wednesday all day/evening every week. All ales are just £3.50 per pint!
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.
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 so you can experience your favourite sport with the best pictures and the best sound in town!
We are continuously adding new experiences and things to do within the pub. We have two games consoles, a Wii and an Xbox, so if you fancy a game of Mario Kart one lazy winter evening, or you feel the need to show off your FIFA skills then all you need to do is ask! We have recently added a VIP Sports package which is available downstairs in the Vale Vault where you can book the entire venue to watch your favourite game with your favourite people! On top of this why not book a private karaoke evening? We've seriously got it all so you need to come and try us out.
If poker is your 'thing', then we have competitive poker league nights every Tuesday and Wednesday evening, where you can play all the way 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, then we are always happy to hear from you.
Spread the word today and make The Bedford your favourite town local!
