The Riverside Bar

The Riverside Bar is open to the public

The Riverside Bar is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. With our fully licenced bar, lounge area and balcony overlooking the River Great Ouse and Town Bridge, it has to be the best place in Bedford to enjoy a drink. Our bar serves a full selection of hot & cold drinks. We are partnered with Brewpoint and serve a range of their ales and lagers.

On Saturday and Sunday mornings we serve breakfast until midday: enjoy a full English breakfast or a ciabatta roll filled with bacon or sausage (or both). We also sell brownies made by Patisserie Sheree in Bedford.
