Our View

Opposite the 13th-century church of St John The Baptist, this village pub was issued its first beer licence in 1822. Today’s beers come from the B&T brewery in nearby Shefford, with meats from the local family butcher. Fresh fish and shellfish are the big thing here. A typical menu might include smoked salmon and prawn timbale, and roast rump of lamb, sauté potatoes, green beans, mint and caper jus.

About the area

Discover Bedfordshire

At its most southern point, Bedfordshire is only 35 miles from London Waterloo, so there’s a good reason for the UK’s fifth busiest airport to be called London Luton Airport. The county is one of England’s smaller in terms of area, but more than makes up for it in terms of business HQs and visitor attractions. Among the most popular of these, and among the top attractions in the UK, is ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, founded in 1931, and now covering around 600 acres.

Along similar lines Woburn Safari Park opened more recently (in 1970) and is just over half the size. Fans of old flying machines or cars will enjoy a visit to the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden, a tiny village near Biggleswade. Among the oldest examples in the collection are a pioneering French Blériot XI from 1910, and a number of early French and German automobiles from the very late 19th century. 

Bedford itself is located on either side of the River Ouse, and has a large Italian population, descended from those who came to work at a local brick factory in the 1950s.
