 Lovely village pub
Recently changed hands with a full range of beers, friendly staff and excellent food. My wife and friends have visited on several ocassions during August and September eating something different upon each visit and must say that the menu offered is very good quality home cooked food, on the last visit I had what was the most tastiest burger i've eaten and the Pride was the best I've had from any pub.

 Absolutely terrible.
After Reading a good write up in the local paper we thought we would sample the Italian menu, of which is extremely limited.
Only then to be informed that they were only serving a Sunday roast...
Serivce- terrible and slow.
Food not brilliant
Forgetful staff who are uncoordinated
Food took forever although the place was empty
Avoid this place like the plauge.

Excellent value for money on the food front - new menu is refreshing and offers some great food. Must reccomend the Lamb Chilli and the Ultimate Burger. Both are fab. Beer is cheapest in the village but that is not saying much.

This establishment is pure quality. Fantastic setting, professional and friendly staff, well kept beers and first rate food at very reasonable prices where all the food is produced in house. This is a must for anybody who enjoys quality.

 What a smelly disgusting place!!
The young female bar staff is so rude and she is full of her own self importance. The atmosphere is so tense in there and it really isnt a nice place to relax. i would seriously give the place a wide berth

 WHAT A LIAR
Who ever wrote that last comment is an absolute liar! (Manybe not about the great night, but definatly about the rest.) I have never in my 26 years of drinking, had to leave a pint of beer because of its lack of transparency, its lack of tasting like the larger i ordered and the bits floating in the head (which i was told was normal when using the head tap). If there are any experts out there who know how to keep good beer, please pay a visit to the white swan, as they dont have a clue!

 Full of the scum of the town
This has to be the best place to be in the town on a Friday & Saturday night... if you are after a fight, drugs, an empty wallet, 25 min wait to get a drink and last but not least to bump into most of the studients who attend your Maths lesson! Love the decor though. Such a shame, because its got so much to offer but to the wrong clientel.

Mrs S Montgomery
 Outstanding Homemade Food.
What a lovely change to actually order a dish off the menu that is described as Homemade and actually get a meal piping hot that is like it says: Homemade, none of this pre-packaged garbage you expect from other establishments.

Also, may I add, there was a large choice on their menu which is in large print, so I didn't have any problems without my glasses.

My husband and I have decided to enjoy our sunday roasts at The Froth and Elbow now, it seems silly to cook and spend so much money on a roast dinner for two, now our children are all grown up. We have become friendly with the cook and are confident that she always gives me the best roast parsnips!

Thank you Susan for the sherry.

 Lovely Setting
Traditional and modern non-smoking restaurant areas - friendly and helpful staff both behind the bar and the waitress service. Food presentation and taste very good. Good atmosphere. I would recommend it for couples or families. - It will be better when smoking is banned in all public bar areas though in February

 Large Pub, good food / service, average price.
This is a fairly large pub with a wide menu average price 15 -20 for a 3 corse meal.
Visited one in October 2006, service was very good, meal was of good proportions and quality, must go again soon.

 great victorian pub
I used to live at 29 winfield street on the same side as the globe in the mid 1970'2 as a child, i was looking to see if it still existed and it does! I now live in the USA so to see this website is really cool. It would be great to see some pictures of it from the inside and out. It used to have an off liscence section where me and my brother would go and buy crisps and cokes.

 400 year old pub in the centre of Biggleswade
This pub has been recently refurbished. The staff are friendly, the food and drinks are very reasonably-priced and the pub is clean. There is a small courtyard-style garden at the rear and the pub itself is very small but if you're looking for a traditional pub in the Biggleswade areas, I can highly recommend it.

 Very impressed!
My wife and I used The Clipper early last Saturday evening. We had drinks and meals, and the service was excellent throughout. Staff were friendly and efficient, even coming to check if our meals and desserts were OK.

The premises were modern, smart, and clean, and the music on video screens was never intrusive.

The only surprise was how quiet the pub was - maybe people haven't discovered it yet!

 Delightful People - Terrible Prices
Great setting, lovely garden, happy, friendly bar staff, even welcoming locals BUT very, very expensive food that on the day my family and I ate there wasn't at its best and terribly expensive drinks. Sadly, unless the prices come down to a realistic level, fewer people will visit which is an awful shame. Come on Land Lord, lower the prices and get more punters!

 Not too good
Lovely pub and location. Food very expensive, main food ok but rest not value for money. Heating had broken down and no indication of this. Been here before and I think this is last time.

 over rated
the Loaf in my view is well over rated..... After waiting up to 20 mins to be served you come away with the feeling that you have been mugged as the price of the drinks are extortionate......my opinion is Use ya loaf and stay away they will have to drop their prices in the end!

 What A Wonderful Pub
My husband and I stumbled upon this wonderful pub completely by chance one Sunday evening and immediately adored it. Set in a lovely, quintessentially English village we entered the pub with some trepidation as in our experience, attractive pubs can often be full of unattractive people, regulars hostile to visitors etc. What we found however was the friendliest most inclusive people perhaps we have ever encompassed. In particular, one long haired hunk, Micheal was it?, who did everything he could to put us at our ease. In fact, forget the friendly staff, excellent food and drink and wonderful setting, go just to spend time with this gorgeous and amusing man!

 Disappointed!
Born & bred in Exmouth (Devon) I was greatly looking forward to the opening of The Clipper. Unfortunately, I moved away before it opened so last night was my first opportunity to drop in for a drink. My friend and I stood at the bar for several minutes unnotticed. A young lady in a black blouse came to the till directly in front of us, she did not make eye contact or acknowledge us. The pub was not busy but two young men were serving and unfortunately did not seem to realise that we had been waiting. My friend and I left without being served.

 finally a decent friday night in Dunstable!
What a refresing change recently on friday nights since downtown reopened as The Blue Rock Cafe,some great house music with a really fun edge to it followed by some classic trance and a few rock tunes throw into the mix from the new Dj,all the usual Dunstable attitude has gone and its full of people looking for some fun on a friday night,well worth a look if thats your thing.

 Good quality food & service, at reasonable prices
My wife and I eat regularly at the Crown and have always enjoyed our meals there.
The quality of the food is higher than the usual pub/restaurant, while the prices are reasonable. The service is also efficient but very friendly.
The only (minor) criticism I have is that we always drink bottled water (and wine!) with our meal but can never get English water, so have to drink Scottish water instead. I believe this refusal to stock English water is due to the brewer, Greene King.

 Fantastic Pub
I went to this pub not expecting great service, food or drink but not having anywhere else to go, I walked into the pub to be greated by a fantastic bar man who I believe was called Tom, he spoke to me in a polite and informative mannor which I was very impressed with, then went on to see if there was anything else I wanted. His service throughout my visit was outstanding and indead, so was that of the other staff. What a brilliant day, meal and outcome. Well done and keep it up!

 Great food, amazing variety, dreadful waiter
The Chalk Hill, Great food, fantastic variety, only one problem. The male waiter is the rudest man in Great Britain. I have eaten there twice now and each time my wife & I have looked at each other in disbelief at his rudeness. The last time we ate there, with two friends who hadn't been there before, he interrupted our conversation saying, Are you ready to order, I've got other people waiting. Even the people on the next table looked over in surprise. He then took the order incorrectly, brought the wrong food to my table and then tried to overcharge me. My recommendation is to go on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday because I think he's off on those days. But apart from him It's a great place to go.

 Something its not...
After two visits to The Crown, spread over a year, i have two very different opinions. The first visit charmed me. The good food and the friendly staff urged me to visit again.
However, during the somewhat dissapointing second visit i found out The Crown had been taken over. The new Crown reminds me of a chain pub such as the beefeater. With tacky decor,horrid food, overly expensive drinks and the constant feeling of being watched by the staff; i'd rather eat at home. An utter dissapointment to the glory The Crown once had. Worth a miss!

 nice but VERY overpriced
Nice pub layout , generally for younger people inc students but way way way overpriced.

2.70 for a pint of JSmiths !!
5.50 double JD coke

This place is taking the pi**, the only good side is you can buy 2 decent cocktails for a fiver.

Afraid it gets a 2 for the prices
