A charming and charismatic building nestled in the Victorian ‘urban vista’ of De Parys avenue, our magnificent site is nearby to the Bedford Park, bustling town centre & the area’s proudest landmark - The Bedford Embankment.
With our fourteen boutique bedrooms, enticing bar and fresh food menu bursting with homely treats, d’Parys is the perfect place to dine, drink & dream in the heart of historic Bedford.
Had 4 friends over from Spain so wanted special evening. Poor greeting, mediocre food, average service - just nothing very special.
A lovely setting, but the food was over cooked and service not great- gone down hill!!
pub that has 13 rooms. get ready to be handled by pub employees. not hotel receptionist and hotel standards. Rooms are nice but strange. Shower has no curtains so you shower the entire room. No coffee machine kettle nor capsules if there is one (short so I was told). Simple service.
Initially disappointed on arrival by the state of the place, difficult to find if you didn’t know it as the signage outside was either broken or unlit. Inside whilst waiting for friends to arrive, the tables were extremely sticky & needed a damn good clean. Internally the appearance is quite tatty, thankfully the restaurant area was much nicer. The service was good & the food tasty. However, won’t be rushing back.
The email reservation system was flawed as we were not expected even though I had a confirmation for the booking. We were there for my Mother in Laws 84th birthday and I have to say that apart from the bad start and the thick chips (oven chips to the rest of us) the food was fantastic , the service was good and she really enjoyed it as did the rest of us . So to be fair with a little attention to detail this could easily become one of the best restaraunts in the area . I will certainly come back .
Very nice family meal for celebrate a birthday! Would definitely return.
superb , very friendly, well catered for , service was excellent , food was great , will defiantly be going back
Overall good meal and service. However consider drinks over priced.
Good friendly service. Excellent food
I went for a girls lunch on a Saturday. Overall the food was nice, and the atmosphere was good but the service could be improved. First of all the waitress wasn’t overly helpful when explaining some dishes on the menu for example how big the small vs large dishes were in terms of portion size. Secondly, the food took over 45 minutes to arrive after placing the order, which was a long time considering it wasn’t particularly busy. The food didn’t even arrive at the same time so some of us had finished by the time the other dishes arrived.
Staff were very polite & so helpful. Food is amazing - everyone commented how lovely it was. Will be coming back here again without a doubt.
Excellent food and service!! Amazing fish pie!!
Great decor and ambiance but the food as always lets the venue down! Staff were nice/pleasant but just not matching the expectations of the venue.
Never had a bad meal at d’Parys. Lovely food and great service. Looking forward to visiting again
We were served by Demi who was brilliant. Friendly and welcoming and really helpful. A credit to the team. Thanks Demi!
When booking I advised that one of us was diary and wheat intolerant. Our waitress Anna, was not at all helpful in trying to accommodate this. She didn’t want to help or try and offer options that would work. She actually stated all you can have is hake or steak. When we asked if they could change any vegetables to accommodate the dietary requirements this was not an option. My other friend wanted to order the chicken and was told that this takes over 30 minutes to cook, I don’t know why they felt the need to tell us this. We looked at the desert menu, Anna advised us that my friend with the intolerances couldn’t have anything, other than sorbet, when we asked whether they could make the Etonmess without the cream, we were advised no, as everything is mixed together. There also didn’t seem to be great communication between the bar staff and waitresses as the poor bar staff took the wrong drinks tables all the while we were there. There was also a lady who was struggling to walk, when she asked where the bathroom was she was advised up the stairs. There was no consideration that she may not be able to get up the stairs, the lady had to ask if there were anything’s down stairs, they then sourced a key so she could use the down stairs one. Myself and my friends all work in customer service and we really felt that the service was not great this time. Having said this I have visited this restaurant a number of times and this is the first time I have had a bad experience.
Extremely unfriendly service, did not feel welcme at all. Will not be back.
love the food and love the atmosphere
A table of 5 for a friend's leaving do! Ambience perfect, unfortunately the food wasn't up to expectation. One guest had bubble and squeak with poached eggs as a main course. The potatoes were soggy and Luke warm, the poached eggs were very hard. The sharing board is meant for four people but in fact it stretches to just 3, however the eggs on both salads were soft boiled so that was a bonus.
Great Sunday roast with the family!
Menu is good, perhaps a slightly wider range of options?? Love the Camembert!
Always amazing service! my fave place to go in Bedford
Everything went very well, although it was quite quiet when we were there. Portions were good and the right size for us.
Nice food, good service
The starters were dry, there were no starters for kids. The drinks were brought out wrong and then the main meals. We felt very rushed when we got in. Barely had sat down before we were asked about drinks. The food was mediocre. The puddings were nice though and my little girl enjoyed her macaroni cheese.
