Mr Pretzel

17 Greyfriars, Bedford MK40 1HJ

You may have walked past this place in the few months it has been open, but I heartily recommend you pay a visit. Being a major fan of the pretzel, this is like manna from heaven for me! Freshly baked on the premises, these soft and salty swirls are totally moreish. For the more sweet of tooth, you will find a range of exotic looking pastries – I noted some containing Turkish delight….

Kazoku

9 St John’s St, Bedford MK42 0AH

Newbie Japanese with longest menu. Don’t be put off; the friendly staff will advise (the first 6/8 pages are sushi, so skip those if you’re not in the mood). Stand out dishes thus far have been the miso cod and tempura prawns. Also great gyoza, prawn skewers and delicious miso aubergine. Many more dishes yet to try.

Chaathaus

32 The Broadway, Bedford, MK40 2TH

The latest addition to the Asian restaurant scene is a winner (and a bit of a looker too!) Local boy, Dishoom trained, Anwar Miah is cooking up a storm with his small street food inspired plates, that we think are ideal for sharing. We love the dhaal with spinach pakoras, the Bombay firecracker prawns, Manchurian tofu and Hakka chilli paneer (to name a few).

Mama Concetta

35-37 Harpur Street, Bedford MK40 1LA

We love this super friendly, family owned pizzeria. With vintage styling and an impressive pizza oven centre stage, you will find yourself transported to Naples or Rome. We love a cheeky Aperol Spritz and a Pizza Napoli, but there are loads of authentic combos to be found!

Foxy wings

3b, Merchant Gate, Riverside Cl, Bedford MK40 1AS

A fun collaboration between lockdown start up, Foxy Wings and Beerfly. A top spot for beer and a bite. It’s all about the cauli wings with sriracha sauce for us. (Tho we have it on good authority the chicken wings are very decent too). Highly recommend the midweek lunch deal; our choice is cauli wings with kachumber salad and rainbow rice Also a top spot for a beer in the sun.
