The Bedford Arms is a stunning country house hotel located in the village of Chenies. The 18 luxurious bedrooms and beautiful views of the Chilterns Hills make The Bedford Arms the perfect place to enjoy a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life. As well as a comfy bed to rest your head, this plush hotel boasts opulent dining spaces fit for all occasions and menus to match.
The oak-panelled dining room is ideal for any formal soirée. When dining here, start your meal right with a sharing platter for two. Whether you opt for the selection of cured meats or the trio of smoked salmon, plump king prawns and mackerel rillettes, both are accompanied by mixed olives, bread and a selection of dips.
You’ll find a wealth of outstanding dishes to choose from – The Bedford Arms is a foodie’s paradise. Think poached octopus and brown shrimp salad with paprika garlic mayonnaise; polenta chips with pomegranate molasses and blood orange salt; slow-roasted pork belly with chorizo apple jam; whole baked lemon sole with truffled fingerling potatoes; and chickpea and butternut pastilla. The dining room also plays host to The Bedford Arms’ famous Sunday roasts, which are carved at the table and served with all the trimmings, but make sure you save room for a decadent dessert or French cheeseboard. For private parties, the chess room has it all; this dining space holds up to 24 people and the dedicated staff can cater for any occasion and even create a menu to complement your event.
In the warmer months, you can sit in the beautiful outdoor garden area and enjoy a light bite, scrumptious afternoon tea or one of The Bedford Arms’ signature sandwiches. If you fancy relaxing in the sunshine with your favourite tipple, pay a visit to Betty, the classic 1950s Citroën van fitted with a mobile bar, which serves a great range of wine and bottled beers. When the nights draw in, make your way through to the shire bar, where you’re invited to unwind in front of the roaring fire whilst nursing a delicious cocktail.
