The Bedford is a regular lunch spot on our annual visit to Tavistock. Close to Tavistock centre The Menu has been updated and the food is very good. Staff are friendly and courteous and the Chef is both imaginative and competent.

Historic hotel at the gateway to Dartmoor. Built by the Duke of Bedford on the site of Tavistock Abbey where the very first Cream Teas were invented and are still served today. The hotel oozes with charming features which hark back to a gentler time and its location provides guests with a close walk up on to the Dartmoor National Park.
