We decided to spend an evening of fine dining with another couple. The couple had seen an advertisement in a local newspaper that touted the excellent seafood at The Bedford Tavern. So we drove 30 miles to try it out! When we arrived there was a sign on the door that the upstairs dining area was closed. So we went... More

Good drinks, music, price is just like at home and felt comfortable. We had a great time! Bartenders were attentive as well as polite! Even had a dance floor.

The downstairs bar is a little dated. It could stand some TLC, but the upstairs dining room is very nice. The food was good as was the service.

Wow, we stopped here for lunch and the sign outside suggested upscale pub food.....The atmosphere was quaint, but the Haute Cusine portions were shockingly laughable! Interesting to be in farm country and receive a Heirloom Tomato Salad that was approximately one half cup of tomatoes and 3 string beans....the dressing was delicious, but I think you need to have a...

We are sorry to hear you had such a disappointing lunch, but we worry that you might have gotten the wrong place to leave this review as we don't serve lunch, only dinner. We don't open until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and we don't open until 4:00 p.m. on Sundays. Also, our side salads are only $2.95, and we... More

The pub has a frontier feel and the drinks from the Bartenders were great! During the evening when the fire-pit is lit do not forget to ask for a s'mores pack!

We needed to get off the road for a while to stretch our legs and eat. The day we ventured around Bedford many of the establishments were closed, it was after 5p, so we happened upon the Beford Tavern. The upstairs restaurant was closed but the basement area was open for business and serving food. The Tavern downstairs is great,... More

Stop by this basement "speakeasy-style" tavern for some good food and great fun. There is live music some nights. Upstairs you can dine in a more lovely modern atmosphere and the upper level is wheel chair accessible right form the main street.

We were in the Bedford, PA area for a girls weekend and decided to try The Bedford Tavern. The exterior of this place is awesome, but the interior does not flow with the overall style and architecture of such an awesome building and area! The interior was more like family style country kitchen diner!! But, were were there for the... More

Upstairs or down, the food is great. Upstairs is quiet and almost elegant. From wine to desert and coffee, the menu is impressive. Down the stairs (for us) is more fun! Anything but quiet, or boring. Bad lighting, good cold beer list, and great drink prices. Sit back...laugh...and enjoy.
