The South End is a largish stand alone pub that is in a leafy area on the busy A6 to the south of Bedford.
Once inside there were two largish rooms and i had drink in the lounge which was very smart and comfortable this room was carpeted throughout,there was also a seperate bar.
This pub is a Charles Wells tied house and there was one real ale on the bar this was Wells Eagle bitter and this was a decent drink.
This was a nice pleasant pub to have a few drinks in.
