Good selection of Beers, the food all came out at the same time, instead of in dribs and drabs, it was piping hot, great quality and very reasonable. The... More

Have not eaten here for a long while due to the change of ownership. So good to see the original owners back in place. Food was lovely, great sunday lunch. Will be returning soon.

We decided to try and were glad we did. Good beer and wine, excellent meal, friendly and efficient service, reasonable price. It would have had top reviews if there had been... More

One of those rarities in rural Beds: a really welcoming pub with a great range of well kept beers and excellent food. Best (and largest) fish and chips for miles and wonderful home-made curries.

The Salmon and Prawn starter was divine as was the goat cheese. The dinner - we all had turkey - it had all the trimmings you could wish for and was served fresh... More
