|About Our Pub
The Embankment is an imposing mock-Tudor pub with luxury rooms in the heart of Bedford. The clue to our location is in the name! We sit right in the middle of Bedford's beautifully-landscaped Embankment, with wonderful views out over the River Great Ouse, the boathouses and all the hustle and bustle of life on the river.
The Embankment Hotel was built in 1891 and has been renovated to reflect its late-Victorian heyday, but with all the modern comforts & facilities of a great pub. The atmosphere is relaxed & hospitable. There is no stuffy hotel lobby or residents' lounge, just a team of friendly faces to look after you.
We have 20 comfortable en-suite bedrooms with free Wi-Fi as well as a spacious bar & eatery overlooking the river, a lovely shaded terrace and a private dining room for up to 24.
Jonathan Taylor is managing The Embankment having done a great job at our sister pub The Swan, Salford. Patrick Moore is in the kitchen cooking a seasonal menu of fresh food, using top quality ingredients served at pub prices.
We are open for breakfast, for coffee & cakes through the morning, serve lunch from noon, & have hot fresh food available all day & through the evening.
We really look forward to meeting you soon!
Andrew, Jonathan & the team
