The Pub

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. It doesn’t stop there… we’ve also found delightful wines from Warden Abbey Vineyard and guest ales from Bedfordshire and surrounding counties.

Unique Dining Spaces

With the warmer months approaching, dine inside or out at The Kingfisher. Enjoy riverside views from the pub, or relax on the riverside terrace or The Jetty. Vibrant seasonal menus await you in our unique setting.

Menu Highlight

Since the launch of our new menu this year, we have been very grateful with the amazing feedback on the new dishes and the most popular dish is…. fish of the day… delicious.

“We had a lovely meal and the service was fantastic. The restaurant was really busy even on a Monday which is a good sign!”

Laughter is brightest where food is best
