Great local food and drink

We are thrilled to be the new landlords at The Guinea, a wonderful village pub located in rural Bedfordshire between Bedford and Sandy. We previously ran the Sondes Arms in Rockingham Northamptonshire where we built up a strong local trade and a high quality food offering.

We’re going to use our experience to continue creating a lively local pub for the village that will also be popular with diners from further afield. We know that customers expect and deserve high standards so refurbishments have been made throughout the pub and the kitchen. Including improvements to the seating in the restaurant bar, new carpeting, a complete makeover of the kitchen and the return of draft beer pumps to the refurbished Guinea bar.
