About The Bedford Arms
The Bedford Arms Oakley is a Traditional Pub with a Contemporary Twist offering you The Finest Quality Homemade Food, Quality Real Ales and Fine Wines from around the World. We are an independent family run business offering the finest quality homemade food.
As a local pub we are highly committed to providing you with the finest quality food and customer care. We care about what we put on your plate, that's why we believe that one supplier cannot supply the best of everything, so we consistently source our food from a variety of suppliers with a heavy influence on fresh local produce.
A very pleasant experience with polite and efficient service and good food. Bottle of wine prices were reasonable. Made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived.
Fabulous meal and well looked after by the team. We will be back again.
We were looked after very well by the staff and couldn't fault the service. Most people enjoyed their meals very much, although a couple of our party (who had had the prawn starter) had quite bad stomach upsets later in the afternoon. This could have been just bad luck, but I thought I'd mention it for your reference. Kind regards, Jenny Flinders
We had a fantastic wedding reception. Emma and the team made our day very special and did everything they could to make us and our guests welcome. Food was great as were the decorations and willingness to be flexible to meet our needs. Thank you! My only suggestion would be to improve communication and contact leading up to the day as I had to chase responses and number of times which was a little stressful.
Pleasant as always
We had booked a table for 7.30. We waited for ages at the bar to even be acknowledged, eventually we were served our drinks and shown to our table, only to be told there would be a long wait before our order would be taken. We then heard the staff telling other tables that the chefs were stressed and food would take a while. As we had booked for 7.30 we decided to leave. Luckily from our point of view we were trying this restaurant as we had also booked for a large party on Friday 10th. Needless to say we have cancelled that booking.
Very friendly pub and quality food
Food was great, just right for the price point. The waiters were very friendly and professional. Thank you.
Shame about the broken coffee machine. But very good and prompt service. Catered for our varying dietry issues. Food good and value for money.
Fabulous - don’t change anything
Very pleasant meal in the conservatory dining area - friendly and helpful staff. We were running late but they held our table for us - new summer menu was good and tasty especially the gnochi in blue cheese sauce - asked for it as a main meal and they served me a bigger portion - chose it with a side order of green sauted vegetables and they were just right! More options for vegetarians please.
We were not given serving spoons for our vegetables and I had to eat ice cream with a fork as I was not given a spoon for that either. I asked for water and despite being told a jug would be brought to the table it didn't appear. The cheesecake was supposed to come with strawberries but it didn't, and no alternative was offered (no apology given for the dessert not being as decribed on the menu). The restaurant wasn't busy at the time so I was surprised at the lack of attention to detail. The food we had was ok but it was a shame there were so many errors.
Loved it although service was slow waited 25 mins for waiter to come to table. It was very busy though as was Father’s Day. Will def be back.
Sadly we experienced really poor service - we didn't have a dedicated waiter for some reason and so we kept being forgotten about! We had to wait 20 minutes for drinks and we only had cokes! Dad was promised a free beer but never got one! We had to ask to be served for all our courses as all the waiters kept ignoring our table and then the waiters seemed to rush giving us our food - no sauces offered etc. Not a great experience for us and considering it was Fathers Day, not brilliant for my dad!
Very polite and helpful staff.
Friendly staff, one dish returned, obviously not charged and all other "dishes" good.
Great food, great service & beautiful place. Would highly recommend
We had a fabulous evening, weather was lovely so we ate outside. Food was very good, service was friendly and efficient. A really enjoyable time.
Another fantastic lunch time meal Attentive staff with out being over intrusive Freshly served hot food which was both presented well and delicious Well Done ... sure to be back!
Good menu, but could do with another main course vegetarian option
From the moment we arrived everybody was friendly and helpful. We'd had our wedding reception at this pub some 30 years earlier so wondered what it would be like now. I can only say it exceeded expectations and Mrs Grant was so pleased at my choice. Many thanks to all the staff at the Bedford arms for great dining experience
Portions of battered haddock very large on a bed of more than large portion of fries . Could perhaps fish could be offered in perhaps three sizes ...small ..medium ..large . Quality is as important as quantity....that is not to say fish and fries were well cooked . Another suggestion with large portion of fish have fries served on a side dish....it was difficult to access both the fish and fries on the plate . I look forward to your reply ...and hopefully we will again enjoy a meal at the Bedford Arms Regards John
Wonderful menu - hard to choose. Great, friendly service and fantastic tasting food
Came here for a celebratory meal as a family. Food was lovey but let down this time by the service. When we arrived we were shown to a table but not provided menus. We had to ask for menus after 10 mins of waiting and even then was not provided a wine list and had to ask again for that. Ordered drinks. One was wrong when it arrived but I didn’t comment as by this point I was just pleased to have a drink. They came to take food order when we prompted them after another 15 mins only to find out the item we ordered was not available. Would have been good to know that when we were provided the menus! Have been here before a few times. Am glad this wasn’t our first visit as the service may well have put us off returning if it had been.
Food was very good, very tasty and well presented. The pub and restaurant was very quite the night we were there.
