About The Park Pub and Kitchen

Built in the 1900's, The Park pub & kitchen is just a stone's throw from Bedford Park on the outskirts of the town. Beautifully refurbished with its fireplaces, flagstones floors and beamed ceilings, the pub is stylish, cosy and comfortable.

With a traditional wrap-around bar, spacious restaurant and relaxed conservatory, The Park boasts a light and airy garden room which leads out to the urban garden (a fantastic place for dining in the summer with heaters provided for the other unpredictable months).

On our menus the emphasis is on local suppliers, the freshest ingredients and seasonal produce. We let the food do the talking, with our daily fish specials made from top quality fish straight from the market

The Brie and dried tomato quiche was a real winner. We had the queen of quiche making in our party and she was very impressed. Well done Chef. Sandwiches very fresh and chips yummy. Thank you all.

We love coming to have lunch at the park pub and kitchen. We enjoy seating in the booth because there are three of us and it is spacious. We love the food which is always a high quality. Sometimes too much on the plate. We are looked after very well by the staff and our requests for my husbands meal to be cut were done well.

As on all previous visits to The Park the food ordered was delicious, only criticism would have to be the desert that 3 of us ordered. We ordered the Sticky Toffee Sundae which was served in a normal size sundae glass which came out just about 2/3 full which being the most expensive desert on the menu was a bit of a disappointment albeit it tasted delicious

Decided to try again after previous disappointment six months ago. Unfortunately little has changed poor service, poor value for money.

We were here for Father’s Day lunch and sadly had a very disappointing meal. The order was incorrect to start and they gave myself and my husband the wrong meals. When they came out again the kids struggled to cut their meat it was so tough. My meal was edible but not particularly nice. I had the sponge pudding for desert and it wasn’t cooked in the middle, just raw sponge. Chocolate tart was again edible but my husband didn’t finish it which is very telling! We didn’t complain because we didn’t want to ruin my husband’s day and make a fuss. It was very very quiet so maybe other people knew more than we did about what it would be like! Definitely would not go back in a hurry.

Loved the online booking system for larger parties, this made it a lot more simple when organising deposits and menu choices. It would be good if the person sorting the booking could potentially add or take away the odd person, altering the deposit total. Generally a nice evening, would recommend the Bubble and Squeak, the pie or steak, and the brownie!

Rather expensive for what it is and to charge extra for veg... It's not a top notch restaurant so include the veg! The meal was tasty but our side dish of mixed veg was just a bowl of cabbage. They did take it off the bill but that's not the point. We waited ages for our drinks, too long really and they were expensive for what they were and served with an extremely thin plastic straw that was too short for the glass it was served in. All the lime juice was at the bottom of the glass, so it seems it wasn't mixed properly.

Wine was lovely, friendly service, food took a long time to come out and chicken was very dry/tough. Have eaten here before many times and the food is generally ok but could be better cooked for the price and high end ambiance of the restaurant. I do really like the pub and staff there though, so will go back, but when you’ve got competition from the likes of the Embankment The Park falls slightly short.

Thank you for making our party so special last night. It’s difficult to choose a venue for a special party when you live in Cyprus. Everything was perfect and the staff were so friendly and courteous. We will definitely recommend your establishment to friends in and around Bedford. We also had a lunch at your pub on Saturday and again the food was excellent. Next time we are staying in Bedford with our friends we will definitely be coming to you again.

Food was amazing and service from Kit was fantastic. This is our sixth visit and it gets better and better each time. The beef shin and blue cheese pie was out of this world.

Despite the restaurant not being very busy we were not given a menu or asked for a drinks order after 25 minutes of sitting at table. After having had our order taken I was later informed that the dish I had ordered from the specials menu was no longer available. They should have known that beforehand. To give them their due, they adjusted the bill total, but only by taking off the price of dessert. A disappointing experience.

Staff are siesta friendly & helpful but has to wait several minutes before anyone was available to greet & see us to our table. First course of Bubble & Squeak was hot & tasty but sadly our main course of risotto with chorizo & chicken breast was not good at all. Chicken was looked anaemic & was tasteless & the risotto was claggy & also tasteless. Very disappointed.
