Peach Pubs has re-opened its riverside pub The Embankment in Bedford following an eight week refurbishment.
The Victorian pub was given a complete overhaul with a re-organisation of the main bar and restaurant, a new kitchen and upgrades of the pub`s 20 bedrooms.
“The Embankment’s in a fantastic building enjoying a stunning setting overlooking the river Great Ouse in Bedford and whilst it’s a real landmark in the town, latterly it had started to show its age,” said co-owner Jo Eames.
The Embankment, co-owned by Eames and Andrew Coath of Peach, was closed for two months while the work was carried out to install a new kitchen, relocate the bar area and redesign the main restaurant area.
Head chef Christophe Perney has also created a new menu to offer a mix of pub classics and more sophisticated dishes using seasonal ingredients. The pub also opens for breakfast, afternoon tea and offers takeaways.
The building is owned by Charles Wells Pub Company who also supplies a selection of Wells & Youngs cask and bottled beers.
