My daughter and I went out for a casual birthday dinner on a Saturday evening. We were surprised at how busy it was at 5:45. We had to wait about 25 minutes for a table but figured we had the time. Once seated we ordered right away as we had already checked out the menu and knew what we wanted.... More

Enjoyed another fine meal here the other night. Loving the new renos, especially the new dining booths! The new menu additions are excellent also. When we arrived there was a 25 minute wait for a table. So we saddled up to the bar for a drink. Just another added bonus as we were in no rush. The staff were informative,... More

excellent service- fish and chips was lacking though, possibly a bad batch of fish- I commented when asked and the courteous staff immediately withdrew the charges. Very impressive- service fast and friendly

I don't see a lot of changes although the place has been freshened up. The food has a few new menu options and the bar looks great. ABedford staple.

This newly renovated pub was a great spot for lunch with my daughter-in-law. We had shopped all morning at the Sunnyside Mall. We needed a break and this pub was handy. I ordered the Crab Cakes and we shared an order of Croquettes. The food and the service were great. I would highly recommend this pub.

Nice family pub and you will get what you pay for. Service is nice and attentive. While not a long list of menu items (maybe a good thing) the food was tasty, hot and good portions. Drinks are also very typical although the Kilkenny is a nice treat. Would recommend to all. Maybe stay away weekend evenings but during week... More

OK.. I think there is probably not another Irish Pub in Bedford, so the title is a little tongue in cheek. But Finbar's is definitely on par with the several Irish pubs in the city of Halifax. The menu is varied, including such Irish favs as Boxty, Shepherd's Pie, Guinness and Bacon Mac&Cheese and you can even get Colcannon. Or... More
