Disrespectful, rude staff. A few very bad experiences. They book a lot of functions that they don't seem able to manage, as they overlap. I wouldn't recommend using their function rooms at all. Terrible organisation. Noise leaks through function rooms and when questioned about it...More

Before is a great combination of old and modern England. The most wonderful part of Bedford is the river where swans swim continually in most seasons. The parks are wonderful and people friendly and the town restaurants are also a surprise.

The before always offers s good night out. Sometimes there's comedy on. There's usual a lot of music and dancing. It doesn't take too long to get served at the main bar. Open late.
