About us

Just a short walk from Bedford's town centre, The Gordon Arms can be found on the well-known and loved Castle Road. We'd love you to consider the pub as a neighbourhood hangout which offers great beer, tasty food and friendly service.

The legendary Ent Shed has also had a modern re-fit, providing the perfect place to host a wide range of events and private parties. Keep an eye on our events page to stay up to date with the latest live music performances.

We are now showing Sky Sports & TNT Sports so you can watch all the action from the new Football season; Premier League, F.A Cup, & Champions League.

We also love dogs, meaning your four-legged friends are most welcome to join you in our bar area and gardens.

We had Sunday roast on 17th or December at 13:45. Great vegetarian roast. Best cauliflower and cheese. Great ice-cream. Definitely recommend this place.

Our Monday pub excursion was to the Gordon Arms, a Charles Wells establishment. This was a old haunt of ours some years ago. A 4.6% Pravha pilsner was today's choice and was a good decision! Food was good but a little pricey. Pub was named after the Gordon Highlanders a Scottish Regiment. The pub also has an entertainment venue, which has regular tribute band appearances. A very friendly barman/ Manager

Exceptional place to relax, charge your batteries and/or celebrate! The staff is always helpful and polite. The food is delicious regardless the price - which is always fair for everything! A true gem in Bedford and top location! Highly recommended 10/10 Kids friendly / pet friendly and lovely overall atmosphere. Clover 🍀 on Guinness Recommended!

We had a family gathering in the back garden last Saturday the 14th of May and would like to thank the management in allowing us to reserve some seats and tables outside as we had a fairly large group. This place has recently undergone a full refurb and is bright and welcoming. Friendly staff, good menu choices and is reasonably priced. We asked one of the staff members towards the end of the night to take a group picture of us all, and he was more than happy to help. Overall experience was positive and we will endeavour to visit again. Highly recommend this place.
