The story of our steak restaurant in Bedford started back in 1986. Expect décor that’s styled with warmth and atmosphere in mind. From cosy booths and a stretching bar to timber beams and classic Beefeater wall features, you’ll get that home-from-home feeling as soon as you arrive.

Why we love Bedford
Whatever kind of days out in Bedfordshire ignite your attention, our Bedford top tips are sure to set you up right. And where better to begin, than outside our front doors. Entwined with lush woodlands and meadows, enjoy a peaceful stroll or cycle around Priory Country Park at your own pace. Scattered benches offer picture-perfect moments to catch your breath and enjoy the lake. How about giving watersports a try? The water bursts to life with activity in the summertime.
Heading into Bedford, if art galleries and museums are to your taste, The Higgins Bedford is one of the best ways to get under the skin of Bedford’s history and creative arts – a seven-minute drive from our restaurant. Examine local stories, decorative arts, watercolours from across the world and more. Run during the summer months, guided tours through Bedford’s streets are also a fun way to learn about its thousand-year history. And not forgetting entertainment, like Bedford Festival Fringe, theatre shows at The Place and live comedy and music scattered across town. We all have our own reasons why we love Bedford. We’re sure you’ll find yours, too.
Our steaks are always popular! Our 10oz ribeye steaks are one of our tastiest cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple-cooked chips, crispy flat mushrooms, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
You can’t beat our Sunday lunches here at the Priory Marina Beefeater. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash and ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
It’s got to be our Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Priory Marina Beefeater – featuring a diverse selection of options that truly showcases the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, tea and coffee, toast and more.
We’re totally family friendly and we can make your next meal out hassle-free. Our kids’ menu is full of dishes your children will love and our team are great with kids. Best of all, up to two kids can eat breakfast for free when an adult orders a Premier Inn Breakfast!
