Bedford Arms, Souldrop, Bedfordshire, MK44 1EY – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Proper country tavern with good value homely food in cottagey dining area
Our readers enjoy their visits to this honest pub with its traditional décor and lively - the games room was once a brew house - easy-going atmosphere and lively, welcoming licensees. As well as bar chairs against the counter (liked by chatty regulars), there are a few more seats in the small low-beamed room, including a table in a snug, low-ceilinged alcove. Black Sheep, Copper Kettle Cornucopia (brewed just a mile away), Greene King IPA, Hopping Mad Brainstorm and Phipps Red Star on handpump, several wines by the glass and local farm cider from Evershed's. The cottagey dining area has more low beams (one route through is potentially a real head-cracker) and a central fireplace - and, like the rest of the pub, broad floorboards, shelves of china, and original artwork (for sale). In the evenings and at weekends, the roomy mansard-ceilinged public area comes to life, with table skittles, darts, games machine, juke box, shove-ha' penny, TV and board games; it has a big inglenook fireplace, and opens on to a neat garden with a pétanque court.
