The Embankment - Inn in Bedfordshire

6 The Embankment, Bedford, MK40 3PD, Bedfordshire
England, United Kingdom

Period fireplaces, leather benches, a buzzy laid-back bar, a modern all-day menu, riverside walks for dogs, and fabulous big beds...

Peach Pubs snapped up this town-centre hotel in 2008; now it's their flagship inn. The strikingly timbered neo-Tudor building overlooks the leafy embankment of the Great Ouse. The style of its late-Victorian heyday has been recreated inside, so there are period fireplaces, big mirrors, wooden floors, leather wall benches and a semi-retro feel, from the airy front bar to the dining rooms at the back. Now a vibrant inn with a buzzy, laid-back bar (you won't find a residents' lounge here!) and a modern all-day menu, the Embankment draws a lively crowd – prepare to drink, eat and make merry. You can drop in for breakfast (cosily in front of the fire); order a delicious coffee and cake; graze from the tempting deli board menu; or enjoy the daily roast. The retro styling extends to 20 bedrooms over three floors, the quietest at the top, with bold wall coverings, leather chairs and huge comfy beds dressed in crisp linen. Room 101 has river views and a grand bathroom with a tub and a shower. There's a super heated and semi-covered area outside at the front, and the riverside walks are gorgeous.
