Rex Rattus left this review about The Bedford Arms

This looks a standard (possibly post-war) estate pub. Inside it’s carpeted, has just a couple of tall tables/tall stools, a sofa, but mainly normal tables and chairs. It’s obviously originally a two (or perhaps more) room pub but knocked through now of course, with just the one set of doors in use. The room on the right has the pool table, as well as the toilets, while the room on the left was probably the Saloon Bar. It’s the nicest room of the two, with loads of stuff on the walls, including Fulham scarves and the like, some nice framed mirrors, and some framed beer related posters – e.g. “Beer – helping ugly people have sex since 1862”. I’m not sure of the significance of 1862 as ugly people, beer and sex were all around before then; but who cares? There was a bowling ball, bowling bag, and suitcase above the door vestibule – avant garde decor or just a convenient place for the management to store their belongings?

There was no sign of food or menus on a weekday afternoon, but a couple of regulars had apparently brought in their own sandwiches to eat. There was even an ale on (London Pride - £1.65 a half) which came as a pleasant surprise as on the face of it it had the look of a John Smith’s type pub.
