We have four house ales from Greene King on the pumps at all times.
A cask cider from Biddenden Vineyards, Bushels, as a permanent feature and another 6 guest ales from micro-breweries around Kent, Sussex & Surrey.
Our favourite breweries include Old Dairy, Long Man, Pig & Porter, Tonbridge, High Weald & Gun.
The Bedford prides itself on the quality and variety of the Cask Ale that is sold on the pumps. We endeavour to have 11 real ale/ciders available at all times, with a majority of them coming from local micro-brewers throughout Kent, Sussex & Surrey.
Since Mark Nicholson tookover in March 2013 there have been over 350 different real ales on our pumps and we are still trying to find new sources and great beers from across the region.
It is our 'raison d'etre' and we guarantee that you will not find a better tasting, better looking and better conditioned pint of real ale anywhere else in the South East.
Mark Nicholson has three Cask Marque awards ensuring that we always have the best conditioned real ale in the county!
Cask Marque has a great website and also an Android/iPhone app which helps you discover some less known pubs that have been given this prestigious award.
Wherever you see this sign you know the ale you're drinking is going to be of the higest quality in taste, freshness, clarity and aroma.
