The Riverside Bar

The Best River View In Town!

Have you ever wanted to sit quietly in the centre of Bedford overlooking the tranquil river with a glass of wine or a cool beer in hand just watching the world go by?  

Then why not relax and enjoy a coffee or sample something from our menu.  

You won't find a better location to relax than the balcony of the Riverside Bar.

The balcony is a landmark on the Embankment - come and enjoy it!

On Saturdays & Sundays we offer our full menu, everything from breakfasts, morning Brunch, traditional bar food, afternoon teas or coffee with delicious cakes.

In the weekday evenings you can enjoy our full menu or just a coffee.                                           


Please contact the Steward for bookings and details of our catering packages.

If you want the best view in Bedford, real ales, quality wines at the very best prices,

you know where we are.


We can be found opposite the Swan Hotel, next to the Park Inn Hotel.

Members can also use the car park behind the club (under cover of the hotel) while using the Bar. Please display a car park sticker – available on application here.
