Architectural Antiques

120 Castle Rd, Bedford MK40 3RQ, UK – 01234 213131

Recently we had our fireplace revamped by Architectural Antiques. We now have a wood burning/multi fuel stove, a new hearth, and our original but modified oak surround. The surround is now lower and less dominant in the room and has a new but antique slate mantelpiece. The finished fireplace is a transformation. It is just a shame that it is too warm at the moment to use the wood burner. We are very pleased with the work that was done - very professional, a high standard of workmanship and very nice people. It was also a one stop service as it included the roofing contractor and building control. The team were very accommodating when there was a change of design, instigated by us, resulting in significant additional work being required. This was fitted in at very short notice, for which many thanks go to AA.

After having had 2 stoves fitted, each job very different, they did a brilliant job with all aspects from the chimney lining to the plastering, brick pointing, arch preservation, floor board reconstruction and treatment, hearth tiling .... and to the stove itself of course. Thank you.

Castle Antiques & Pine

115 Castle Rd, Bedford MK40 3QX, UK – 01234 345082

Rob and his team installed a slate hearth for us in October. They did a great job - the materials and workmanship were to a high standard, the job was completed quickly and on time, and the room was left clean and tidy after they left. Recommended.

Beauty Salons

Silks Hair Beauty and Tanning Salon

22 Lime St, Bedford MK40 1LD, UK – 01234 349046

Love going to the salon, I wait a while between visits but the staff always know who I am :) Gary has done an excellent job on my hair!

The staff are very welcoming and professional, and know what they are doing. The price is very reasonable for the high level of service you get, I wouldn't go anywhere else! Love this place keep up the hard work! Xx

Signature Beauty Salon

74 Tavistock St, Bedford MK40 2RP, UK – 01234 215056

Great salon..the barber called Gianni is heavily in demand. Call to book him.

Aarya Nails & Beauty

Howard Centre, 5 Horne Ln, Bedford MK40 1UH, UK – 01234 910056

The price is reasonable £16 for gel nails, the staff seemed rather nice apart from one lady who was continuously pointing out how dry and short my nails were, she also mentioned multiple times that my nails were in a very bad condition which wasn’t necissery. They have a wide range of nail colours to chose from and my nails were painted very quickly and looked very good considering I have rather short nails. However within a few days my nails started peeling and chipping. Average overall experience.

I have been coming here for about 4 years to get my eyebrows threaded. Some weeks the beautician is really good and my brows look on fleek but other weeks they are quite bad. It just depends on which girl you get. The most recent time I went, the girl tried to get away with not trimming my eyebrows which is an integral part of the experience. She also threaded some of my eyelashes out which was an incredibly painful experience and could have been avoided if she was being careful and paying attention to what she was doing. I haven't had her before though so can only assume she is new.

Fantastic service at a very good price! Highly recommended

My go to place for car parts. The guys know what they're talking about and have helped me out on many occasions. Much more personal and friendly than the big corporations - and cheaper too

Euro Car Parts, Bedford

Unit 17 Bedford Business Centre, Mile Road, Bedford MK42 9TW, UK – 01234 763963

This is a great place to get high quality/original parts for your car, with a waaaay cheaper price. I usually order online as they always offer free delivery, the few times I went to store I had to wait for maybe up to half an hour to be served, as the speed of the one or two members of staff dealing with customers is really slow, when the store gets busy I would just go home. At the moment I am sticking to delivery.

Busy busy busy. Phones going mad (give rhem phone guys a medal)and 15 people infront of me but got what I need and half the price of Halfords. Polite and friendly staff always helpful. .

Car Alarms and Security -

Autotronix

206 London Rd, Bedford MK42 0PT, UK – 01234 342300

Had my tints on my Wife's Evoque fitted by the garage who we bought the car from whom I must point out was not a Range Rover dealership , However the job that was done by others was not done very well and pretty sub standard to say the least , I called into Autotronix who were recommended by Range Rover to see what they could do considering this is an expensive car , They took the time to look it over and gave me their report which confirmed what I thought initially, I booked the car in with them and they proceeded to remove what was fitted by the previous garage and fitted a far superior film which came with a 10 year guarantee and ready when they said it would be for pick up , All I can say for me personally a happy wife means a happy life for me , I had a parrot phone system fitted by them into one off our vans the previous year and had a problem which was my own stupidity however nothing was a bother to them and within the hour was sorted .

Good service,customer friendly and very welcoming staff members. Prices is on par with other audio and car security services and greeted with smiling faces and positive attitude. Recommended !!!!

Car Dealers

Evans Halshaw Vauxhall Bedford

Barkers Ln, Bedford MK41 9SD, UK – 01234 270000

Bought a second hand BMW from here. Good price and service from the dealer. Too many extras like wheel insurance etc which I did not take up. Warranty was definitely worth it. Just wish they didn't try it on with the unnecessary 'extras'and just sell you the car. Would have been 5 stars otherwise.

Good no hassle service to book the car in for work. Paperwork was found quickly, confirmed details and advised of earliest return i.e if no other work needed. Will see what the return of vehicle is like but so far so good

Ampthill Road Car Sales

31 Ampthill Rd, Bedford MK42 9JJ, UK – 01234 330818

EXCELLENT GUYS FROM START TO FINISH. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DONE EVERYTHING THAT WAS AGREED AND MORE WILL DEFINITELY BE COMING BACK FOR MY NEXT CAR THANKYOU SCOT

I bought a car from this dealership in June '15 after a lot of consideration. Found a great BMW X3 with really low mileage (appeared to good to be true). Did some research through the AA first - scheduled a viewing and took a test drive - and decided to pay for a full AA Comprehensive check. The result was as advertisied - genuine low mileage and some minor points that needed fixing which were undertaken by Ampthill Road Cars prior to the purchase without question. The whole experience was very positive and I dealt with both Scott and Bobby who run the company together. Both of these guys were very helpful on all occasions, had the car cleaned well (outside anyway) and even picked me up from the train station when I went to collect the vehicle. Really helpful fellas and I hope their business grows as they're planning it to over the next few years. (Yes, the building is a little run down as they're in the process of relocating shop and making small adjustments to the existing office).

Bedford Car Centre

Elstow Rd, Bedford MK42 9LE, UK – 01234 217777

Excellent cars and very helpful staff. Abass ensure that the entire purchases is smooth and cost saving. Thank you guy I really appreciate your support.

Purchased a Rav-4 for my little sister from Bedford Car Centre a couple of weeks ago. All the Staff were brilliant, very welcoming and professional. The vehicle I purchased was as described and more than satisfactory. I also had a look at their other stock which was all spot on. I would most definitely trust and recommend this dealership to anyone :).

Filling Stations

Kempston Filling Station

47 High St, Kempston, Bedford MK42 7BT, UK – 01234 843035

Friendly helpful staff, and good stock

Petrol a bit expensive

Shell

Woburn Rd, Kempston, Bedford MK42 7QA, UK – 01234 841767

Just want to thank staff at kempston for helping us to get the car going after we had called in for fuel and the car wouldn't start again. Many thanks . problem solved new battery.

I fell over passing here and injured myself - the fellows from the car wash helped me, phone me an ambulance and gave me water, they were really nice

Esso

London Rd, Bedford MK42 0NX, UK – 01234 216626

This is a well presented garage but a relatively quite garage. Always clean and tidy, there are a wide variety of products in the shop, staff are pleasant and there is a cash machine outside that doesn't charge for withdrawals. However! I am certainly surprised by the cost of a Litre of fuel here, it's significantly higher than garages less than a mile away and no reason is given for this, also surprisingly when you venture inside to pay for your fuel (No Pay at Pump) if you decide to partake in a coffee it will cost you 70 percent more than any other garage or coffee shop in town! Overall I have given this garage Three stars, one for being an 'old skool' 24Hr garage, one for its cleanliness and one for its extremely pleasant and helpful staff, but being prices as if it's the only Garage in Bedford is very disappointing sadly.

Great great service. What a staff n super management. My regular place from today.

Fuel 24 Hour

BP

Newnham Ave, Bedford MK41 9QG, UK – 01234 261305

Petrol station with a small M&S food hall incorporating a hot snack and coffee counter. Ideal for lunchtime snacks. They do sell a small variety of groceries including fresh fruit and vegetables. They also sell a variety of ready made meals. Very pricey though and very busy especially on weekdays.

Amazing place friendly helpful staff

Tesco Petrol

Cardington Rd, Bedford MK42 0BG, UK – 0845 677 9060

This is my local shop. It is part of the larger Tesco 24 hour superstore with a number of other stores in the centre. This forecourt is handy for snacks and a few bits and bobs after you have fuelled up your motor. The Asda store not too far away on York Road tends to be cheaper in terms of fuel prices.

24hour pay at Paul available. Very convenient

Sainsbury's Petrol Station

90 Clapham Rd, Bedford MK41 7PJ, UK – 01234 363239

Good for fuel and car wash etc. Free air and water. Snacks and drinks and sarnies in the shop and a selection of wines and beers. Travel sweets,maps,phone gizmo.s Just across the road from supermarket.

Standard Sainsbury's Petrol Station. Prices not as good as ASDA in Rushden or Tesco in Wellingborough usually, so only stop here if I need to. Staff seem pretty good and are generally friendly. Haven't used the shop much, socant comment on that. All in all my verdict is, it's OK but it is always worth keeping an eye on local area prices and there can be some surprising differences.

Motorcycle and Scooters

Craven Motorcycles

2A Alexandra Road, (Just Off Midland Road), Alexandra Rd, Bedford MK40 1JA, UK – 01234 353452

Proper old school motorcycle enthusiasts garage where they will do their best to look after a variety of different motorcycles. Booking MOT is simple and convenient using their website. The shop is spotless inside and face to face, Jason and his team are friendly and knowledgeable. In short it was a pleasure to pass some time and do business with them - recommended.

The only bike shop I went to who didn't want to sell me the complete package before I did my CBT. It was a good start to gaining trust

They tracked us down by phone to tell us that a prescription had come through - with 2 hours to spare! They are generally very helpful and efficient. There is easy parking too.

They suggested using Office365 to manage our emails between multiple users, which has proved to be a great choice. We would highly recommend AvecSys to anyone in need of IT support whatever the issue.

Cartridge Depot

30 St Loyes St, Bedford MK40 1EP, UK – 01234 910908

Used this shop when I was urgent for cartridges that I'd usually get online. Was given great service and the value was much better than the online alternative. I was especially impressed with the full guarantee on all cartridges as cartridges I bought online sometimes arrived faulty and was always a nightmare getting a refund. Can't recommend enough, this is now the only place I get my printer supplies from!

We have been using Cartridge Depot’s services for the last couple of years now and we are extremely happy with the service we receive. Guy and Vincenza are always very helpful, knowledgeable, and prompt in responding to enquiries and orders. They offer good prices and fast delivery. We thoroughly recommend them.

Computer Systems

Simputers PC Systems

2 Pevensey Rd, Bedford MK41 8HW, UK – 01234 818949

Simputers repaired my 5-year-old laptop which had up until that point been running very slowly and crashing frequently. Simputers installed the latest version of Windows and got my machine working perfectly while also backing up and restoring my data, so I didn't have to worry about losing anything. The repairs were carried out in just a couple of hours and I was left very happy and satisfied with the entire experience. This saved me a lot of money as I was seriously considering buying a new computer beforehand. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Bedford College

Cauldwell St, Bedford MK42 9AH, UK – 01234 291000

Had good time all teachers do put the effort in for us guys to achieve our predicted grades. Off to university this year. Thank you

Great college courses. I personally did IT level 3 myself. It was a good course with good teaching. We had lots of resources to learn from, including routers, computers, software (packet tracer) and knowledgeable teachers. The only complaint I could have is the trips were a bit off topic. Going to a museum of computers was not of any help to the course. Overall I would definitely recommend this as a starting point for anyone who wants to get into the IT world

Thank you. Was very grateful for you getting me moving again (gears that would actually shift!) in minutes yesterday at a time of need, so I wasn't too late too see a patient. On top of friendly, informed and efficient help, not accepting any reimbursement was very kind. I'll try and get back to you soon for a full service to express my gratitude. Am wondering if you have vegan cake though? ;)

Transition Cycles

The shop is nicely positioned just out of town with a driveway that you can park in to drop off and pick-up your bikes. I would definitely recommend that you give them a try. Support your local bike shop!

great people who have excellent customer service. so happy they're a local binge shop for me. they even took a buckle out of a wheel for an awesone price. they can get bossy for servicing though over the spring to autumn period so bear that in mind... highly recommended

Forever Flowers

23 Chiltern Ave, Bedford MK41 9EQ, UK – 01234 300559

A lovely talented family run business. My experience to order flowers for my Dad's funeral was first class from beginning to end. I was welcomed by a caring, understanding, helpful gentleman who was very informative. He invited myself and mother to shop to discuss with his wife and son over a cup of tea. They had so many helpful ideas and went above and beyond to get my mother's wishes put into their designs. They arranged beautiful flowers for the funeral and personalised a hammer and saw for my Dad as he was a carpenter. Wow....the flowers were amazing. Thoroughly recommend. Everyone commented on the beauty of flowers and talent of florist. Thanks so much for completing our day without a hitch...so grateful.

Had a wreath made for my aunties funeral, absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much

Greycourt Florists

134 Bedford Rd, Kempston, Bedford MK42 8BH, UK – 01234 851230

We got married in August 2017 and had been recommended Greycourt by our venue. From the minute we met Kelly we loved her, she knew exactly the type of feel we wanted to create, we had no preference in flower or colour, all we asked was for the flowers and venue decorations to be colourful and happy ... I showed Kelly pictures of my dress and the bridesmaid dresses and the rest was purely left down to what she thought would look best, she left my bouquet as a surprise, which I was completely happy and comfortable with and she did not disappoint at all. The venue looked breathtaking and was more than we could have ever hoped for, we can't thank Greycourt enough 😊

AMAZING FLOWERS!!! 😍😍😍 I used Greycourt Florists for my wedding and I am so glad I did! From the minute I walked into the shop and met all the ladies I knew that I was going to get everything I wanted and more. Everyone was so helpful, especially Kelly and my dream flowers were created and made into reality! Not only were ALL of the flowers just incredible, but they also helped with finishing touches on the venue, balloons, and generally helping to calm my nerves. I am so glad that I went with Greycourt Florists for our wedding as they really did make the wedding complete! We were left feeling completely stress free and I just could not get over the amazing talent of all the ladies as my flowers were just beautiful! I would recommend to anyone!!! 💐💐💐

Sell just about anything, reasonable range of food, no fresh food. My only criticism is that there's never anyone on the shop floor if you need help. When you do find one they are very helpful. Low turnover of staff, most have been there a long time.

A very big store with ample free parking. A lot of the time you can get things from here that are very well priced. I've often had things in my Amazon basket and found them cheaper at The Range. This particular store doesn't seem to get very busy which makes it easy to take your time and browse around. There's also an in-store café upstairs.

Great store with helpful staff. Somewhat reminds me of the dear departed Woolworths as you can find pretty much most things that you would be looking for.

very nice store with a very friendly manager. lots of food available for you to measure out yourself. it would be nice if they have more toys for birds that are priced reasonably. regardless, the unpacked food and cages are quite cheap! definitely worth the visit!!

Taken 1 star off because I'm disappointed to see they still sell shock collars and air horn things to stop dogs barking. Barbaric!

Pets at Home

j, Interchange Retail Park, Race Meadows Way, Kempston, Bedford MK42 7AZ, UK – 0345 600 8915

Well stocked (for dogs)... other animals, not as much. That's where the demand is I suppose. The pets for sale are scrupulously clean, as is the store. Knowledgeable, and helpful staff. But it's quite pricey. Worth a look though.

We have brought our fish from here and also adopted a Dwarf Hamster 2 years ago. They are so friendly in there and full of knowledge. My daughter loves going to the workshops they offer

Dropped in to have a browse and especially see the range on children's trainers. This is a quiet place, does need a bit of livening to maintain its trendy outlook. The products themselves are great. Staff are friendly but do need motivation.

Good, especially if you're looking for shoes that are on sale

Bought a built in oven good price and service Got it fitted by a local electrician as cheaper than Currys even with there half price fitting deal. If they take away your old oven it will cost you if you get it to the shop yourself they will take it of your hands for free. So the item itself is a good buy but beware of the extras

Great store. Good service. Helpful staff. New laptop easily selected & ordered. Only negative, if such, is having to order on line to make use of vouchers/deals.

Pasticceria Amalfi Cakes

Never been before. Came by this morning with family to sample the cakes. Very nice and a warm welcome from staff. A taste of the old country.

Came to my rescue today when I needed 8 cupcakes within 10 minutes for my daughters party... cakes were gorgeous. I'll definitely use them again but next time give them more notice! Thank you . 😊

Cakes by Rachel Maddams

8 St Helena Rd, Bedford MK42 0RA, UK – 01234 312389

I'm very surprised and sad to read these poor reviews of Rachel's work. I asked her to make a 100th birthday cake in the shape of King's Chapel for my father, and she rose to the challenge beautifully. (It was a bit more squat in shape than the actual chapel, but that's fair enough! It was certainly recognisable.) She gave us numerous choices of flavour beforehand, and was very prompt and lovely to work with. Admittedly it was a birthday, not wedding, cake so perhaps there was slightly less at stake, but we had 100 guests and they were most impressed. My only criticism would be that it was a little bit too sweet for our taste but we are not big cake eaters and don't like sweet food, and most of the sweetness was in the icing. I am very much hoping she will do more for us! And she was very good value.

Amazing choice of flavours!! So difficult to choose! Our wedding cake was beautiful, it looked stunning, exactly what we wanted and tasted delicious.

Partyrama

17 Greyfriars, Bedford MK40 1HJ, UK – 01234 218999

Chose to buy a Retirement helium ballon and normal air balloons from this store! Service very good and person serving me ( now left) very polite! The balloon blown up with helium was done on the Wednesday and presented to retiree the next day, it is now the start of week 4 and helium ballon just beginning to have a wrinkle effect to it so I can see it going for a few more weeks too! The balloons I blew up with air are still going strong too though just beginning to reduce in size! I am recommending this store to many people! Well done this store for having quality products and value for money too! Thank you!

Great, speedy service. Recommend calling ahead as they are so popular. Have used regularly.

I just love this place. Staff really know their stuff and are passionate about their food. The place is crammed full. The deli is positively dangerous and the boys in the kitchen serve up some truly delicious baked goods. Why shop at Tesco when you can take your time here and finish off with an espresso.
