Do you take reservations?

Bedford: No, we’re a walk-in only kinda place but we’d love for you to give us a try anyway. We’ll do everything we can to seat you quickly when you arrive and your group is welcome to enjoy a drink at the bar while we do so (provided there are no minors in your group, of course).

Kinda… we call them Weekly Features. Every week our culinary crew prepares a new dish for lunch and a new dish for dinner and we offer these items “while supplies last”.

What the heck is a “Finbar”?

Finbar is the name of the Patron Saint of the city of Cork, Ireland and has become a common Irish first name meaning “White Head” in Irish Gaelic. A number of miracles have been attributed to Saint Finbar, the most impressive being that the sun did not set for two weeks when he died. Better late than never I suppose. Located in his city of Cork, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Ireland bears his name to this day.
