Review on The Embankment

In an ideal location just a couple of minutes walking distance along the promenade from the bustling town centre of Bedford, The Embankment boasts a picturesque position overlooking the tranquil River Ouse. Having been praised by Raymond Blanc, this mock-Tudor pub uses only the very best quality fresh ingredients to create truly delicious traditional pub favourites.

The extensive menu has been designed by head chef Jonathan Aylard to showcase the very best of Bedfordshire's seasonal produce, offering a selection of local vegetables and meats. Highlights include The Embankment's 'Roast of the Day' featuring 28 day dry-aged Aberdeenshire roast beef and Jimmy Butler's free-range shoulder of pork, all of which can be washed down with an array of cask conditioned real ales.
