Bounded on three sides by the Great River Ouse in the heart of the pretty village of Oakley, this 16th-century inn is surrounded by beautiful countryside but only a short drive from Bedford. Its county-wide reputation for excellent food is entirely warranted, and will allow a new operator to build on this momentum while lending their own touch to the pub.
The large main dining area is complemented by several cosy snug areas; a beautiful conservatory overlooks the sizeable garden and provides an ideal space for private dining, while also functioning as a picturesque meeting room for the many local interest groups who frequent the pub. Whether dining, drinking or socialising is the order of the day, the Bedford Arms has something to delight everyone who chooses to visit.
The Bedford Arms would be an ideal business for an experienced food operator or couple, someone ready to hit the ground running and build on the pub’s already strong reputation for superb food. Strong marketing skills are a must, as is the desire to become a key member of the Oakley village community.
