When we visit Tavistock on any day of the week, you can always expect friendly & accommodating staff, On this occasion, we stopped for a coffee initially, then progressed to a pint & snack. The service was second to none, as always.

Congratulations on your anniversary. I am delighted you were spoilt by the Bedford's hospitality. We look forward to welcoming back soon.
