We had a large family meal here for my Sons 30th Birthday, the food from Starters to Dessert was amazing. The choice from the preordered menu was great and not any one of us was disappointed. Will definately go again.

A warm and friendly welcome, great service and the best breakfast in Bedford! We have tried most places in Bedford for a breakfast meeting and this is so far the best by far! Great food, value and service.

Another lovely night with superb staff and atmosphere. We have tried everywhere in Bedford but many lack either on good quality food or service. The park has both in abundance and the staff are awesome. A pleasure in the bar or in the restaurant. Nothing is too much and a cracking Gin menu! Love this place

Visited here a week or so ago and was totally disappointed. Waited ages for the full breakfast at a whopping £8.50 and when it arrived it was lukewarm and greasy with dry toast. Everything on the plate was either undercooked, like the sausages we left as they were still raw in the middle or overcooked to a frazzle. The building... More

The food is exquisite! Best pub food I have every had at such a good price too. The staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. It was such a relaxed atmosphere. Already planning our next visit- 5 stars all round, thanks for a great night!

Whilst the food here is nice and staff are friendly, the overall experience was tarnished by not having any confidence in the allergy folder. I enquired about the bread, which came with olives, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and pesto and was surprised the folder said there was no dairy given that most pesto is made with parmesan. Helpful waitress checked... More

Some might call this an expensive place, and it is a little bit, you do get well presented food and nice drinks for it though. The location just off Bedford Park helps for its location and just off the town centre, just a walk from there.

Have visited here on and off for a decade or more and as you may see from my last review (3 years ago) I was rather critical. Pleased to say that this establishment is now 'getting its act together'. Rather impressed with most of the front of house team.

Having not been here for a while I revisited for an evening meal and had a far better experience than my previous one. The staff were helpful and friendly and we had a really nice meal for a reasonable price, I wonder if the management has changed of late. Anyhow, fresh, seasonal ingredients and a good specials menu, the choice... More

The Park is quietly steaming into the lead with its food and service and general fabulousness. I say "into the lead" but where on earth is the competition? Poor Bedford. The Plough is fabulous but the two aren't comparable and, really, The Plough isn't in Bedford. The John O'Gaunt in Sutton is pretty fab, too. All pubs! Anyway, I've been... More
