Pub with rooms | The Embankment, Bedford

Stay With Us

The Embankment has 20 en-suite B&B rooms, including doubles with king-size beds, twins and family rooms. Rooms 101, 102, 103 and 201 all have spectacular views over the Embankment and the River Great Ouse and are perfect for a special occasion. We also have a fully wheelchair accessible twin room on the ground floor in an adjoining Victorian cottage.

All the rooms have high-quality linen & toiletries and individual touches such as antique gilt-framed mirrors, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access and tea and coffee making facilities. We removed all plastic bottles from our bathrooms earlier in the year, replacing them with a refillable and more eco-friendly aluminium bottle.

The Embankment is very popular with business travellers who are looking for a more friendly and convivial place to stay than one of the big chains. The Embankment is frequently used by people living in and around the town, who book rooms for friends and family when they are hosting special occasions, in the knowledge that their nearest and dearest will be well looked after.

We love well-behaved dogs with several rooms available so your ‘other’ best friend can come with you. It’s just an extra cost of £10 including a rasher of bacon or sausage for breakfast. If you’re bringing your four legged friend, call us directly as we cannot take online bookings. Dogs are very welcome in the bar, as long as they are polite and kept on a lead. Let us know if your dog is thirsty, we are happy to keep them watered.

Our eatery is open all day, serving food from 7am-10pm Monday-Saturday and Sundays 7.30am-9pm. There’s plenty to do in Bedford, with a walk along the Embankment being a must, and only a stumble away.

Relax, you can trust in us

We want you to feel as relaxed as possible in our pub. Safety has always been important to us, and now even more so than ever. There are several new ways we have adjusted to maintain both yours and our team’s health whilst you stay with us, ensuring we comply with Government guidelines. Just click here to see our Covid-19 procedure. As we obey the new 11pm curfew, we are unfortunately no longer able to serve past 10pm. To make sure we serve lots of the good stuff to all guests, we strongly encourage guests to talk to us about booking a table, either for dining, drinks or both, and encouraging earlier sittings, where possible. Guests are always welcome to take a nightcap, or bottle back to their room.

Guests are all also reminded that face coverings are mandatory when inside the pub, and not seated at your table. If you do not have a face mask, please let us know and we can offer you a disposable one.

Friend or stranger, we promise you a warm welcome.
