Great British food in a spectacular setting

Our passion lies in finding quality fresh, seasonal ingredients and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Daily specials, seasonal dishes, scrumptious afternoon teas and a kid’s menu you won’t find anywhere else. Come on in, find yourself a spot at the bustling bar or hide away in one of the many nooks and crannies, eat, drink and soak up the atmosphere of The Kingfisher, Bedford.

Afternoon tea, dinner and lunch menus

At the Kingfisher our aim is to produce the best quality dishes with the lowest food miles. Our meat travels under 15 miles from farm to plate and our fruit is delivered from just a mile away.
