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
This is a true pub the games room was even a brew house once with chatty regulars at the bar, lively, welcoming licensees and traditional décor. The atmosphere is easy-going, and as well as bar chairs against the counter, there are just a few more seats in this 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, 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 way 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 hood skittles, darts, games machine, shove-ha' penny, TV and board games; it has a big inglenook fireplace, and opens on to a neat garden where they have a new pétanque court.
