BDM Portrait

A busy pub set on the village green in the heart of the local village community. The village is a densely residential area with approx. 5000 inhabitants, some shops, 2 schools & local sports amenities. The pub is half a mile from Junction 12 of the M1 and feeds a very busy route into Dunstable which is 5 miles away. The pub currently enjoys the majority of the village trade with its involvement in building the local community hub. It has benefited from a recent refurbishment and offers great cask ales, quality national brands and a substantial food offer. It also has a car park with approx. 25 spaces and a rear beer terrace that is partial covered to use throughout the year.
