At lunchtimes you’ll find an excellent choice, whether you’re looking for a perfectly presented sandwich in the bar, or one of the top choices from the main menu including Dartmoor steak and Jail Ale pie, or an indulgent plate of battered sustainable local fish and proper chips.

As the birthplace of the Devon Cream Tea, it’s no surprise that The Bedford is a popular spot for a classic cream tea or a luxurious full afternoon tea, and in the evenings there’s a full menu offering everything from a light bite to a full three course meal, with the best local ingredients at the heart of everything.

For special occasions, The Bedford offers a range of options, from an intimate dinner party to a grand celebration event.
